Thank you!This tallies with the information I had on hand, and has some things that are new to me.
FYI, here's what I have:
John Bale married (1) Malinda Mason b. 1798, d. May 22 1832. Issue: 1. Emily Carolina Bale - June 14, 1824 - Aug 18 1893 (her name is from her gravestone) She married John T. Stewart, who died at Shiloh, and is buried over at Carmel Presbyterian church in Cherokee Cty AL. They had nine children. 2.I did not know Matilda's name.She probably died young, because she was not named in her father's will of 1864.(Since he disinherited another child by name, he would have mentioned her if she was alive even if he did not give her a bequest). 3.James Alfred, Apr. 12 1828 - Dec 15 1900.He married into a prominent Chatooga County GA family and had numerous children.He & his family are buried in Myrtle Hill, Rome. 4.Amanda Sophia Bale, b.

Mar 14 1850. 5.Malinda Bale, May 18 1832 - Sep 7 1832.She died a few months after her mother died in childbirth.Her & her mother's deaths were separately reported in the Greenville "Mountaineer".
