    Notes 

    • (1) One of the children of Richard E. HALE and Melinda (BISHOP) HALE was Della or Sarah HALE. The compiler believes that Della and Sarah were the same person.

      (2) Sarah I. HALE is listed in a household headed by her father, Richard HALE, in the 1870 census of Canaan Township, Henry County, IA.

      Sarah I. is listed in the 1870 census as a person who was then 5 years of age; therefore, according to the 1870 census, she was born in about 1865. According to the 1870 census, she was born in IA. [Note by compiler: According to the 1900 census, Della (HALE) REID was born in January 1865, at about the same time as Sarah I. HALE.]

      No child named Della is listed in Richard's household in the 1870 census, and the compiler has not found a child named Della HALE listed elsewhere in the 1870 census of Henry County, IA. [Note by compiler: According to the 1900 census, Della was born in January 1865, and would have been 5 years of age at the time of the 1870 census. The compiler would have expected Della to be in or near her parents' household at the time of the 1870 census.]

      (3) Sarah I. HALE is listed in a household headed by her father, Richard E. HALE, in the 1880 census of Canaan Township, Henry County, IA.

      Sarah I. is listed in the 1880 census as a person who was then 15 years of age; therefore, according to the 1880 census, she was born in about 1865. According to the 1880 census, she was born in IA. [Note by compiler: According to the 1900 census, Della (HALE) REID was born in January 1865, at about the same time as Sarah I. HALE.]

      No child named Della is listed in Richard E.'s household in the 1880 census, and the compiler has not found a child named Della HALE listed elsewhere in the 1880 census of Henry County, IA. [Note by compiler: According to the 1900 census, Della was born in January 1865, and would have been 15 years of age at the time of the 1880 census. The compiler would have expected Della to be in or near her parents' household at the time of the 1880 census.]

      (3) On October 19, 1887, Della HALE married John REID in Henry County, IA.

      (4) Della REID, John REED (Della's husband), Maud E. REED (Della's daughter) and Frank E. REED (Della's husband) are listed in a household headed by Della's mother, Melinda HALE, in the 1900 census of New London Township, Henry County, IA.

      Della is listed in the 1900 census as a person who was born in January 1865 and was then 35 years of age. According to the 1900 census, she was born in IA, her father was born in TN, and her mother was born in IN. According to the 1900 census, she had then been married 12 years and had theretofore given birth to 2 children, both of whom were then living.

      According to the 1900 census, Della's mother, Melinda HALE, had theretofore given birth to 5 children, 3 of whom were then living. At the time of the 1900 census, Melinda's son, Joseph Franklin "Frank" HALE, was living; and Melinda's daughter, Mary Catherine (HALE) STRETCHBERRY, was also living. Therefore, at the time of the 1900 census, only one other child of Melinda HALE was living; and that child had to be Della, who was then living with Melinda.

      (5) A household headed by John F. REID is listed in the 1910 census of Ward 3, Albia, Monroe County, IA. [Note by compiler: The census enumerator's handwriting is difficult to read, and the compiler is not certain that he has read it correctly. John F. REID's name is listed as John H. REID in the index to the 1910 census.]

      Listed with John F. is his wife, Sarah I., who was then 44 years of age; therefore, according to the 1910 census, she was born in about 1866. According to the 1910 census, she was born in IA, her father was born in TN, and her mother was born in IN. According to the 1910 census, she had then been married 24 years and had theretofore given birth to 2 children, both of whom were then living. [Sarah's middle initial may be "J.," rather than "I.," but it is listed as "I." in the index to the 1910 census.] [If, at the time of the 1910 census, Sarah I. had been married to John F. for 24 years, she would have married him in about 1886, and would have remained married to him continuously from about 1886 to the time of the 1910 census. Della married John F. in 1887 and had been married to him for 12 years at the time of the 1900 census. If Sarah I. and Della were two different persons, then Sarah I. could not have been married to John F. for 24 years as of the time of the 1910 census.]

      Also listed with John F. is his mother-in-law, Malinda HALE. According to the 1910 census, she had theretofore given birth to 5 children, 3 of whom were then living. At the time of the 1910 census, Malinda's son, Joseph Franklin "Frank" HALE, was living; and Malinda's daughter, Mary Catherine (HALE) STRETCHBERRY, was also living. Therefore, at the time of the 1910 census, only one other child of Malinda HALE was living; and that child had to be Sarah I., with whom Malinda was then living.

      (5) Ella REID is listed in a household headed by her husband, John REID, in the 1920 census of Ward 3, Albia, Monroe County, IA.

      Ella is listed in the 1920 census as a person who was then 55 years of age; therefore, according to the 1920 census, she was born in about 1865. According to the 1920 census, she was born in IA, her father was born in WV, and her mother was born in IN. [Note by compiler: The compiler believes that "Ella" was really Della. "Ella's" father was born in about 1829. WV did not become a state until 1863. Prior to 1863, it was part of VA.]

      (6) Della REID is mentioned in an obituary of her brother, Joseph Franklin ["Frank"] HALE, which appeared in an unknown newspaper, probably an Enid, OK newspaper, shortly after Frank's death on August 24, 1927. The obituary reads in part as follows:

      Two sisters preceded him [Frank] to the heavenly home. Two sisters remain to mourn the loss of a dear brother, Mrs. Mary Stretsbury of Long Beach, Calif., and Mrs. Della Reid of Lockridge, Iowa.

      (7) Della REID is listed in a household headed by her husband, John F. REID, in the 1930 census of Ward 4, Albia, Monroe County, IA.

      Della is listed in the 1930 census as a person who was then 65 years of age; therefore, according to the 1930 census, she was born in about 1865. According to the 1930 census, she was born in IA, her father was born in WV, and her mother was born in IN. According to the 1930 census, she was 23 years of age at her first marriage. [Note by compiler: Della's father was born in about 1829. WV did not become a state until 1863. Prior to 1863, it was part of VA.]
