|Researching Hale, Hamilton, Howard, Mosley, and CalhounIn Floyd, Johnson, Lawrence, Greenup, and Carter Counties in Kentucky.|
First,I want to thank those who have been assisting me in my research and family members that have provided certain information that I needed to get started on my tree.It has not been an easy task trying to piece this family together but my desire to discover my roots were a lot stronger than the many disappointments I was faced with. It was November of 1997 when I first began my tree and I have been digging ever since.
The most interesting character that I have been researching is my great great grandmother, Mary Eleanor "Nellie" Hale.She is a complicated woman who obviously had to endure a lot of hardships and humiliation.Her life,her husband(s)(I know of only one record of marriage), and her lovers have caused much speculation regarding the fathers of her children.
I have spent over a year researching the Hamilton/Hale connection. Some are theories that developed over the course of my research.I do know that my great great grandfather is Tandy S. (or L.) Hamilton who had a love affair with Nellie resulting in two births,Tandy and William.The rest of my information surrounding Tandy S. (or L.) Hamilton is speculation and theory. Keep this in mind!
