Two descendants of Joab Hale 1760-1845 (husband of Lavinia Dill) are closely related to descendants of Samuel Heald 1668-1736 (husband of Mary Bancroft 1673-1736)who emmigrated to Chester Co.,Pennsylvania from Cheshire, England in 1702. Y-DNA tests show a 37/37 match to one descendant of Samuel, a 36/37 match to a second, and a 12/12 match to a third descendant. This Heald family is well documented through Quaker records. An extensive examination of Heald records has not revealed a connection to Joab Hale. There is a land record that seems to show that Joab used the name Jacob Heald in witnissing the transaction. Jacob was a common name in this Heald family. But, no specific Jacob Heald has been found that could have become Joab Hale. I need help in finding an individual Heald who could have dropped from view and abandoned the Quaker religion to become Joab or one of his close ancestors.
