Sea Captain
1. THOMAS1 HALSELL, SR.1,2,3,4,5 was born Bef. 1720 in Maryland (or Virginia)*6,7,8,9.
The following extract from "The Halsell Family," compiled by James Donald Halsell, Sr., mentions the same John the shoemaker and his brother Edward that were "untraced" in the book at
"In addition to the Thomas Halsell, Jr., family, there were three other major branches of the Thomas Halsell, Sr., family--the John Halsell branch, the William Halsell branch, and the Benjamin Halsell branch. One of Thomas Halsell, Sr.'s sons, John, a shoemaker, was killed in South Carolina by the "Hotheads," a vigilante group who believed that he was a Tory sympathizer. John's brother, Edward, was also killed. The descendants of John moved on to Georgia, then to Alabama, where there is a town named Halsell. Some of the descendants of William Halsell moved on to Texas, where several became very wealthy on cattle and cattleland. They also fought on the side of the South. One of his descendants, Grace Halsell, has written several books,and still lives in Washington, D. C. Benjamin's descendants scattered around Kentucky, and some went on to Texas."
(From the above, it looks like Samuel in Choctaw Co., AL, was a descendant of John Halsell.)
