      [Note by compiler: The compiler has not examined the original 1815 tax list of Bledsoe County, and does not know whether any of these persons were the same persons as, or related to, the Richard HAIL, Luke HAIL and James HALL who are listed in the 1830 census of White County, IL.]

      (2) A household headed by Richd. HAIL is listed in the 1830 census of White County, IL.

      Listed in Richd.'s household are 1 free white male under 5 years of age; 2 free white males between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 15 and 20 years of age; 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white male between 40 and 50 years of age; 2 free white females under 5 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 30 and 40 years of age.

      Assuming that Richd. is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, he would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Richd.'s wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, she would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Richd.'s household are children of Richd. and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of five sons (one of which sons would have been born between 1800 and 1810, one of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1815, two of which sons would have been born between 1820 and 1825, and one of which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census) and five daughters (one of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1815, one of which daughters would have been born between 1815 and 1820, one of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, and two of which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census).

      Listed next to Richd.'s household in the 1830 census are households headed by Luke HAIL and James HALL. [The compiler believes that James HALL may actually have been James HAIL, because, according to the Illinois Public Domain Land Tract Sales Database, James HALE bought 40 acres of land in White County, IL on September 26, 1837.]
