Stephen S. Hale was born on November 28, 1796, in Washington county, Tenne ssee, and died on March 18, 1876, in Gibson County, Tennessee (110, 109, 1 11), and is buried near Yorkville.

Stephen S. Hale moved from Washington county to Murfreesboro in Rutherfo rd county, Tennessee, where he married Priscilla Goodloe as stated previou sly, then to Savanah, Tennessee, and finally in 1848 moved to Yorkvil le in Gibson County, Tennessee, where he, with his wife, Priscilla, and fa mily engaged in farming.

Stephen S. Hale was the son of Bird Hale and Nancy (Smith) Hale who were b oth natives of Virginia. They moved from Virginia to Washington county, Te nnessee, at an early date (109). Stephen was a Democrat and he and a ll of his family were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South

When Priscilla Goodloe married Stephen S. Hale on October 19, 1819, her fa ther, John Goodloe, gave her wedding presents consisting of three articl es of furniture that he had employed a skilled cabinet maker to construc t. These consisted of a cord bed, a candle table to sit beside the bed a nd a bedroom storage chest (111). These three items have been handed do wn in the family from one generation to the next.

The cord bed, however, was sold through an antique dealer in the 1920s, b ut the candle table and chest remained, at that time, in the possessi on of Miss Viola Patton of Dyer, Tennessee, who was a great grand daught er of Priscilla (Goodloe) Hale. (See Reference No. 111).

In 1925 Miss Viola Patton gave the candle table and chest to Mrs. Ninn Bob bitt Mount, nee Ninn Louella Bobbitt, the author's mother, who was al so a direct descendant of Priscilla (Goodloe) Hale. For that connection s ee SECTIONS X and XV.

The chest is now (1972) in the home of Mrs. Sallie Fitzsimmons at Dyer, Te nnessee. The candle table is in the home of the author. The table has an o val top that measures 192 by 17* inches and stands 28~ inches high. The ta ble has a turned pedestal and three well shaped legs. This candle table, m ade in 1819, is, indeed, a valued and cherished family heirloom.

Mamma:

We have arrived here. Left Union City night before last about one o'clock and got here yesterday morning at day break. I don't know how long we w ill stay here.

I sent my clothes home in a box, I didn't have any way to carry them. I lost my knapsack. The reason I put the box off at Rutherford was that the train wouldn't stop at Dyer.

I want you to send me some breeches the next opportunity, also some drawers. I have plenty of shirts. Send me some paper that is in the box. There is a port-folio in it that belongs to Buck Northern; send it to hi

I believe there is nothing else I can think of. I think will not stay here a great while, though we may, there is no telling. Some troops have been sent to Corinth and some went down the road toward Memphis. The last word we heard from New Madred our men had the upper hand of the

[NI6585] James Haskins Drane had 3 daughters and one son. My grandmother was Mollie Drane, who the family called Mal or Mallie. She married Benjamin Thomas Roberts, son of Noel G. Roberts, son of Sidney G. Roberts, I belie ve on July 12, 1912, not July 18, 1912. They owned a successful dry-goods store in Lufkin, Texas. BT Roberts died in 1932, at 59, when he fell through a skylight at the store. Mal Drane Roberts was a elementary school teacher and during WWII, after she had retired, was asked to come back as an elementary school principal.

============================================================================
I've been doing some other research, and I came across your information again. There is some corrections that I would like to share with you with respect to my father's lineage intersecting with the Drane's.

Jim Drane Roberts ->Benjamin Thomas Roberts (married Mollie ("Mal") Drane in 1912) ->Felix G. Roberts (not Sidney G. Roberts.. a brother) who was born in 1849 and died in 1902 as a result of a gun fight was married to Mary Kirksey (and their were 3 children from this marriage, BT , a brother and a sister)->Noel G. Roberts (farmer in Louisiana and maried to Maria Thomas in 1832 (?))... there is more to that lineage going back to John Roberts of Virginia around 1650's, but the big error was the substitution of Sidney for Felix. Sidney or Sid also died in the gun battle. For more colorful information & description please look up "The Battle of the Redlands" (Tolbert) or search for Felix G. Roberts and Nacogdoches.

Dad is buried at Restland on Greenville Ave in the new section or annex.

Just a reminder: Mollie Drane was James Haskin Drane's first born daughter with Eliza R. Bobbitt.

The following is a description of the "Historic Cannon Place" once the ho me of Major General Robert Cannon, taken from the "Shelbyville Gazette" da ted March 7, 1907:

"HISTORIC RESIDENCE TO BE MOVED"

"The last residence of the late Major General Robert Cannon here is so on to be abolished and rebuilt. It belongs now to Mrs. S. M. Thompson of H untsville, who is a great-granddaughter of General Cannon. It is a very o ld building and is one of the town's oldest landmarks. It was erected ear ly in the last century. In the center, it is a massive two-story brick a nd has a large back wing. Beneath its great roof many distinguished men ha ve been entertained in days gone. Andrew Jackson was often a visitor as we re such men as Hon. Newton Cannon, Ephraim H. Foster, Hugh L. White, Jo hn Bell, Gen. Gains and others.

"Within the parlor of this grand old mansion, the tones of the first pia no ever brought to Shelbyville were heard. In his day, General Robert Cann on was a very distinguished man and was so recognized everywhere. As Maj or General of the Tennessee Militia, he was called into service of the Uni ted States at the time of the removal of the Indians to the far west in 18 37. During the removal, he commanded the Tennessee troops and his bitter c ontroversy with General Winfield Scott is a matter of history. General Can non died here at an advanced age during the Civil War. And now his grand o ld home is to be torn down. Such is progress.

"The house, which had been continuously in the Cannon family, was raz ed to make way for a subdivision, now called Highland Court. It was in b ad repair, having been vacant after the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Scales Boo ne, the General's granddaughter, in 1905.

[NI6791] Notes for Michael Cannon:

The following is the Obituary for Michael Cannon as it was found clipped f rom the newspaper and stored in the Family Bible now in the possessi on of his great-granddaughter, Willie Mai Shaw Taylor:

IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL CANNON

Michael Cannon was born on the 7th December 1828, and died the 2nd d ay of July, 1907. He was born in what is now Marshall County, Tennessee, a nd lived in this county all his long life, except the time he served in t he Confederate Army. His people were of the "Old Line Whig" persuasion bef ore the war, but when the South was invaded, or there was a threat of inva sion by the enemy, our dear old comrade took sides with his own Southla nd and early joined the Confederate Army, enlisting the 22nd of October, 1 862, in Company G of the 32nd Tennessee Infantry, in which he served faith fully until the close of the war. He served as a private during the enti re war, surrendering and being paroled on April 28th, 1865, with General J ohnston's Army.

There was no braver soldier in the Army than our departed comrade, Micha el Cannon; always faithful to duty, always at his post of duty. He carri ed his rugged honesty with him throughout the entire war. Obedient to h is officers, ready at all times to perform the duties as a soldier which w ere given him by his superiors; and, while only a humble private, he alwa ys bore his part well, however arduous and severe it was. We might s ay he was the typical confederate soldier. He was true to the last.

He had a dear wife and family during the war. These he left behind h im at his home during the war, and never saw his dear wife during that lo ng and bloody struggle, except during General Hood's raid into Middle Tenn essee, when he passed where she was but was with her only a short whi le in returning back South with the shattered remains of that once grand a rmy, when hope itself had died in the breasts of most of the old soldier s; yet this comrade marched back South as true to the cause as ever, wh en defeat looked us all in the face, never straggling nor prowling over t he country, and never was heard to complain or murmur about his lot or abo ut the scarcity of the soldiers rations issued to him.

He came home and made a good citizen as he had a soldier; always true to t he principles he fought for, although accepting the terms of the surrend er in good faith and abided by them. He joined Dibrell Bivouac in Februar y, 1896. He was very enthusiastic and active in getting up funds to bui ld our beautiful monument erected in the town of Lewisburg, Tennessee, a nd lived, we are happy to say, to see that beautiful monument completed, a nd was present and witnessed the unveiling of the same - the last ti me he ever was in Lewisburg. He was a true Soldier, and a useful citizen h as left us. We have lost one of our most faithful members of the Bivoua c. Peace to his ashes.

Therefore, be it resolved that the usual badge of mourning be worn by t he members of the Bivouac, that copies of these resolutions be furnished s omeone of the family of the deceased, and also to the county papers for pu blication.

Jason Thompson, a revolutionary soldier of the colonies, started on horseb ack to seek new fields. He went by his sweetheart's home, Miss Kate McNear y, found her at the washtub with her regular work. She stopped and they we re married, and with only a blanket to take with them, she got up behind h im and they immediately left on horseback and proceeded west. In cour se of time, they reached Fort Nashborough and after a few months the Fo rt was attacked by Indians. Jason, with other pioneers, did the fightin g, while his wife and other pioneer women molded bullets and loaded gun s. She was molding bullets when the first child was born at Fort Nashborou gh, their daughter Mary, nicknamed Polly Thompson, who later married Min os Cannon, Jr. She was the grandmother of Mrs. Rebecca Cannon Fay and Mr s. Letsie Cannon Thompson (widow of the late Zach Thompson).

Minos Cannon, Sr., who was also a revolutionary soldier, with his wife mov ed to Williamson County. They had two daughters, Mrs. Fannie Cannon Cheath am and Mrs. Letsy Cannon Morton and five sons, Minos, Jr., Thompson, Rober t, who fought under General Jackson at New Orleans, Governor Cannon of Ten nessee from 1835 to 1839, and Clement Cannon. Three of his sons, Minos, Jr ., Clement and General Bob, bought land from the government in about 18 12 and located in Bedford County. Clement Cannon donated the town of Shelb yville. The Cannon family graveyard is near the home where Frank Beck live d. Minos Jr., Clement, and General Bob Cannon with other members of the fa mily are buried at this place....

[NI7027] Notes for Catherine McNairy:

The wife of Jason Thompson was Catherine McNairy, mentioned by several aut horities as "Kate McNeary". Clayton, page 74, says, "...The next road lead ing from Nashville was called the Upper Franklin" (To distinguish it fr om the Middle
Franklin, which is now the "Granny White Pike"). It passes out Spruce Stre et" (Eighth Avenue, South) "by the Customs House and is now known as the F ranklin Turnpike...Then came Thomas Thompson...Also in this neighborhood l ived Jason Thompson
who married a sister of Judge McNairy..."
