Jana, I figured I find out who these Haley's were because they were some of the first that came, for people didn't come until 1795 to Nashville...and Allen Haley was one of the 1st Haley in the area (Nashville, Tn. when it was settled). I know of one Haley that made a deal with many citizens in a cattle deal. and they moved to Illinois. I have these records, but don't remember the dates and exact people that was involved, but the names you mentioned is truly the names of the first Haley's in the area. Actually Edward and Benjamin wasn't common names in the area, until later...and they were born in Virginia, and moved in the area in 1830s...and without a doubt it was there brothers that moved in the area later. Jana, I probably know more about the Haley's than anyone...and probably can find who they were if I had more information about it. My g-mail is: email@example.com If you have any more information before or after of early 1800s...send it to me, and I can narrow it down easily in my records, for I will have to read to find out who he was...I know a widow Elizabeth Haley Robert's, but the names is familiar, but she came in the 1830s. I'm real curious of any Haley in the area...for I'm also looking for a lost Grandpaw Haley myself, and almost found out...but not sure yet...in early 1830s in Tennessee. Send me all you know, and I bet I can probably help you. Gerald B. Fowler; Nashville. Tn.
