My great grandfather was William Lorenzo Hasley. He was born roughly 1850s, died about 1930s in Comanche, Texas. He was from Dixon or Dickson County Tennessee. His son, Roger Lewis Hasley--born about 1878-80, ran off at 11 years old about 1890, and became a cook on the railroad as it was being laid down across Oklahoma. He drifted down to Comanche, Texas, and became a good citizen of Comanche. Some of his descendants still live in Comanche, and his grand daughter lives in his house presently. We have not been able to go back further than William Lorenzo Hasley, so obviously the info about a Samuel Hasley from Dickson County intrigued me and seems too coinicidental not to have some connection.
If anyone has a connection, I would appreciate hearing of it.
