    Notes 

    • (1) According to Des Moines County, IA Marriages, Book 11, p. 304, in the entry relating to the marriage of Joseph F. HALE to Susan MERCHANT [sic], Joseph F.'s mother is listed as Malinda BERKY. The compiler does not know why Malinda's surname is listed as BERKY. It is possible that Malinda was previously married to a BERKY; however, the compiler knows of no such prior marriage.

      (2) According to information obtained from Robert Webb and furnished to the compiler by Karen Peery, Malinda (BISHOP) HALE joined the West Liberty Church, also known as the Old Stone Church, in Sperry, Des Moines County, IA, in August 1853.

      (3) Iowa State Census, 1895 [database online], Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 2003:

      Age: 63
      Birthplace: Indiana
      Race: White
      County: Henry
      Town[ship]: New London

      (3) A household headed by Melinda HALE is listed in the 1900 census of New London Township, Henry County, IA.

      Melinda is listed in the 1900 census as a widow who was born in July 1835 and was then 64 years of age. According to the 1900 census, she was born in IN, and both of her parents were born in KY. According to the 1900 census, she had theretofore given birth to 5 children, 3 of whom were then living.

      Listed with Melinda is her daughter, Della REED, 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.

      Also listed with Melinda is her son-in-law, John REED, a carpenter who was born in May 1860 and was then 40 years of age. According to the 1900 census, he was born in CT, and both of his parents were born in Ireland. According to the 1900 census, he had then been married 12 years.

      (4) Sometime during the period from 1903 to 1910, Melinda (BISHOP) HALE, who was then in Albia, IA, sent a postcard to Clara Idell (HALE) FROST in Coldwater, OK. The postcard reads as follows:

      "good morning how ar you i ant very well my hand and my arm i got hurt last Sum mer is bad Say i have got my cushen done i tell you it lookes prety fine if i do have to Say it my Self gran ma to Sweet Clary."

      (5) Malinda HALE is listed in a household headed by her son-in-law, John F. REID, 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.]

      Malinda is listed in the 1910 census as a widow who was then 76 years of age; therefore, according to the 1910 census, she was born in about 1834. According to the 1910 census, she was born in IN, her father was born in VA, and her mother was born in IN.
