Article from the Confederate Veteran mag., dated Sept., 1922, p.348.
WILLIAM B. HALE died April 13, 1922, at his home at Morattico, Lancaster Co., Va. after an illness of several months. He was born Sept. 17, 1845, at his ancestral home, where he spent the greater part of his life.
In 1861 he volunteered his services to defend his beloved country and became a member of Company E, 40th Virginia Infantry, where he served with courage and valor until General Lee laid down his arms at Appomattox. He was severely wounded at the battle of Gettysburg and the time he spent in the hospital was the only part of the war that he was not on the front.
After the war MR. HALE returned to his old home, where he married MISS BETTIE A. ROCK. They were blessed with 12 children, nine survive him. His life was a loving expression of his beautiful Christian faith. He was a kind, gentle and sincere; his bright, cheery disposition was like a sunbeam to those about him.
