I am interested in the name Theophilus in this family.Were Greek names common as first names in this VA/NC SALE family?There was a Dr. Samuel G. SAYLE who named his sons Claudius Galon; Samuel Algernon; Argyle; and Arcadius Saul and I'm wondering if he may connect with this family.Dr. Sam SAYLE also had daughters Corilla Frances and Mary Celista.
Dr. Samuel SAYLE, b. ca. 1800; died 1834/35; married Olivia Wakefield KING in Henderson Co, TN, 1826.I believe they lived part of the time in Carroll Co, TN.I have some further information on his children.Any clues?I guess I'm grasping at straws.I believe this Dr. Samuel SAYLE was a cousin of my 3rd great grandfather, Thomas S. (for Samuel, I believe) SAYLE, b. 1808 in KY and married Elizabeth HAYNES, ca. 1830 in KY or TN; Thomas d. Nov. 5, 1878, Cow Hill, Hunt Co, TX. (I have more info on him and his children).
