Am searching for information about Margaret (Maggie)
HALE, b. 1848 inTennessee. Family stories say that Maggie
was part Cherokee. We arenot sure who her parents were. She
cannot be positively identified in the 1850 or 1860
Tennesseecensus schedules, when she would have been 2 and 12
years old,respectively. One parental possibility is Reuben
Hale, listed inBedford County in 1850, 1860, and 1870; he
was born in 1814. He isenumerated with his wife Harriet,
born 1818, and several daughters:Mary E. (b. 1844), Margaret
M. (b. 1848); Catherine (b. 1850); LucyA. (b. 1852); Susan
A, (b. 1854); and Harriet Frances (b. 1856). Maggie married
John Arthur WILSON in 1870 in Bedford County and movedto
Bell County, Texas, by 1880. If anyone has any connections
to theHALES listed above, please contact me. (The name was
spelled HAIL onMaggie's marriage record.) Thanks.

Recently someone asked me for a marriage record for
Nimrod Fielderand Elizabeth Riggs. I found no record on them
in Bedford Co, soanswered the query and deleted it.Today I
found some pages I had copied from Genealogy of the
LewisFamily by William Terrell Lewis of Perryville, Winston
Co, MS. Thisgives Elizabeth Lewis b 1740, the oldest
daughter of Wm. T. Lewis andhis wife Sarah Martin, married
John Fielder, had three childrenincluding Nimrod Fielder.
Elizabeth died in Williamson Co, TN. Nimrod Fielder married
Elizabeth Riggs in Surry Co, NC, the daughterof Adam Riggs.

author's name was Fuller). Nimrod and Elizabeth Fielder had
5 children and he died inHuntsville, AL in 1854.
