    Notes 
    • John Hale, who was born about 1706, had probably left Tidewater from Baltimore County, Maryland about 1727 and spent some years on the northwest frontier before joining the migration from Pennsylvania up the Shenandoah River. He may have made the trek up the Valley of Virginia in the company of older brother Nicholas Hale Jr. also Joseph and others in the family, after meeting them in Fairfax County. When they reached the gap at Big Lick, later Roanoke, where the Staunton flows east out of the mountains, John homesteaded on Bent Mountain and the others nearby on the Piedmont Plateau.

      Family tradition has it that John Hale, after leaving home early, went to Philadelphia with one of his brothers, that he bought slaves and joined the westward migration out through Lancaster County, Penn, to the Valley of Virginia.

      His father Nicholas Hale Sr. died March 29, 1730 and did not mention him in his will probated in Baltimore County, Maryland, April 18, 1730. The only older son mentioned is Nicholas Jr. the eldest, born about 1702 and still in Baltimore County at the time of his father's death. Two much younger sons, George and Neale, the latter born in 1718, are named, although Henry, shown in parish records to have been born in 1721 is not mentioned.
