i am a direct decendent of cornelius sale dating back to 1680 in england. it appears they moved from england to north carolina and virginia where they set up mills. then cornelius (JR i presume) moved to Sale City,GA where my great grandfather was raised and moved my grandfather to florida to set up another mill in 1910. i have found an interesting site http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/1132/fam03649.htmhttp://www.geocities.com/Heartland/1132/fam03649.htm . from that page you can track back and forth from the data posted. On this site you can find a last will and testement belonging to Cornelius Sr. married to Sarah Parks i believe. Quite interesting as well. i am as well curious of any revolutionary war affiliations. i will continue to search. if you find any information, please contact me and i shall do the same. i only actually started this around a week ago, so i am a little new, but i have a school project due in about a month, so i am striving hard to complete this as soon as posible! let me know if any thing applies to the family you are dealing with ( i can't imagine there being too many cornelius sale's...but you never know!) thank you for your time, i hope i can be of some help. this truely is a learning experience!
