Thanks, Ronny. I'm a regular visitor to the Hassell Family website and am registered there. I have info on Benjamin and Mary's children that is slightly different - I got this info from familysearch.org - in addition to the children you mention this record shows a Millie Hassell born Nov 18, 1784. Another Hassell family researcher emailed me with info she got from the 1850 census. That census shows a Mary Hassell living in Arkansas with five children; Uriah(24 - this Uriah is my g grandfather; he came to Oregon in 1852.) , Samuel(16), Mary(14), Jacob(13),and Catherine(8). She thinks Mary is the widow of Samuel who last appeared in the census in 1840 in Tennessee but paid a poll tax in Arkansas in 1841. Thanks so much for all the information, especially on Benjamin's ancestry. I'm still trying to figure out when, how and from where my line first came to the US.
