Thanks for the info. I'm sorry the info I sent confused you. I inherited this info from my father-in-law. He got it from his brother. This research was originally done back in the early 60's so what I have is very raw and I'm looking for clarification. Here's what I have: Nicholas Thele wife Elizabeth was in Watertown Mass in 1637 and died in Stamford, Conn. 1658. Nicholas and Elizabeth had two children Joseph (b. 1640) and Elizabeth (b. 1643 in Watertown). Joseph has the title of Capt. and it indicates that he moved from Watertown>Stamford>Bedford>Rye. Capt. Joseph Theall had one son by the name of Ebenezer b. 1660 d. 1750. He also holds a title of Capt. His wife's name was Ann. The tree indicates that Ebenezer was a yoeman, Rye and made a will in 1747. Ebenezer and Ann had 8 children - Charles b.1701 d. 1778 In 1728 was Justice of the Peace, wife Jumina b.1704 d. 1768. In 1707? he lived in the old house. Owned lot of land one mile square ext. to Blind Brook and partly bounded by Abraham's property, where the old house stands. He divided it all into four parts and gave one part to each of his four sons. (Blind Brook Cemetery for dates.) Joseph - second son "part of father's farm in Bund's? Nich "where I now live" partly bounded by Charles' farm. Hachalia - 3rd son was Constable 1742-1743, wife Mary. Made his will in 1760. His father had given him another part of his farm, northern part "where I now dwell". Sarah - 1st daughter wife of John Miller of Bedford. Mary - second daughter wife of Joseph Merritt Jr. of Rye. Susanah - 3rd daughter wife of Joseph Haight of the "Manor of Courtland" The manor was build in 1748 by Frederick VanCourtland, son of Jacibus and Eva VanCourtland. Hannah - 4th daughter not married at time of father's will in 1747. Will of father states "in consideration of the love, goodwill and affection which I have and do bear unto my youngest daughter, Hannah, I give her my negro boy, Jeffery, and my black fucoil? riding horse," etc. Abraham "youngest son" In 1747 record shows he sold land to brother Joseph. Charles the first son had four sons - Gilbert b1750? d 17? - 200 acres on Post Road. (copy of will of a Gilbert leaving all to 3 nephews and 1 niece named "Gray" could this have been this Gilbert or his cousin Gilbert son of Hannah?). Joseph - 2nd son - In 1751 he had a farm south of Gilberts "now Meads"? A great grandson of Capt. Joseph, he died in 1829. Was his wife Sarah? Church records show children of Joseph and Sarah were baptised in St. John's Episcopal Church Aug. 23, 1720, Ann, Margaret and Susanah. Thomas - 3rd son 1749-1837 was his wife Sarah or Ann? Abraham 4th son - Did he marry Marie Churchill? Hachaliah 3rd son of Ebenezer had 5 children - John, Sarah, Susanah, Mary and Gilbert. There is a notation under these sisters "evidently named for 3 aunts - did one of these sisters marry a GRAY?" Under Gilbert it reads "youngest son". Did he have three nephews and one niece by name of GRAY? There is also another smaller tree that names Hannah Theal "whose widow was she Joseph or Abraham? She made a will in 1797, (March) in North Salem! Hannah had 4 children _ Ebenezer wife Martha lived in No. Salem made will in 1822. Hachaliah Isaac (there was an Isaac b1796 - d1817) and Hannah. Ebenezer son of Hannah had 5 children Abraham, Amza or Amzi, Hannah, Elizabeth and Mary. The end of the tree has a note "A Theall had a daughter Ann who married Richard Dyheman (Blind Brook Cemetery).

Well that's all I have on this primitive tree. All the questions you see are actually on the tree. I have added no questions of my own of which I have many. The first of which is how does this tree tie into my husband's family? I guess I'll have to dig a little deeper.

I do have more info on Hackaliah. The page reads "Information sent me from Powell A. Casey 1945 Columbia St., Baton Rouge, La. 70808 - La. Hist. Quarterly, July 1945 - page 174 -- "Hackaliah Theall appears to had been the first member of the Theall family in St. Mary Parish La. in 1813; he owned a plantation with 4 slaves on Bayou Teche in St. Mary Parish and he is said to have been one of the first men to cultivate sugar cane in that parish. By 1814 or 1815 Joseph and John Theall, probably the sons of Hackaliah were both planters on Bayou Teche. It was probably either Joseph or John who carried a letter for Levin Waites to James Cathcart from Opelousas on Feb. 25, 1819." I have other info but I'll have to dicipher it before I can send it to you. Happy hunting!!
