While this does not answer your questions....it does give the location of the family and perhaps that would lead to an answer.I am a Vawter researcher and this is all I have on the Dales.Georgene Jurgensen email firstname.lastname@example.org

Her tombstone is located in Sarcoxie, MO cemetery as reads:

(GJNote: there is no Bradford Co., KY but there is a Woodford Co., KY and the Vawter and Dale families are noted in Woodford county in the 1810 census.This is an error on the tombstone.)

Note:Frances Dale and the other children of the Sunday’s are not found in 1870 census and their whereabouts are yet unknown.
Shirley Gregory who supplied information on the Dale line adds this:“Elijah Dale’s parents were Robert Dale and Mary Baskett Johnson (her first husband died). We are still searching for written proof that she is mother of Elijah Dale, as he is not mentioned in her father's will but marriage and birth dates indicate she is the mother.
Elijah served with his brother Jesse Dale in the War of 1812 and they were captured by Indians. They were forced to run the gauntlet but came through without serious injury and somehow survived captivity. Elijah Dale moved to MO as his father had before him. Robert Dale, his father, was a Baptist circuit rider.
It is a matter of record in Jasper Co. MO, that the first Baptist Church ever organized in Jasper Co. was organized in the small pioneer home of Elijah P. Dale.”
