My father was John Homer Hale, (he died in 1964, and was about 54 years of age) and was born in Celina, Ohio. And his father also named John Hale was born a short distance away in Neptune, Ohio. Both Celina and Neptune are in Mercer county.
Can anyone help me trace the family back further?
My father had a sister named Mary, and she never married. She lived all her life in Celina I'm pretty sure.
