Martin Hale (or, properly, McHale) was born in Ballina, Co. Mayo, Ireland. The family appears to have removed to Co. Cork, and he eventually emigrated to Canada with his 9 brothers, date of sailing and ship name unknown. No record has been found of residence in Co. Waterford, although Waterford was likely their port of embarkation.
Martin married Huldah, daughter of Arden Dickinson, a Loyalist from Dutchess County, New York. Brother Denis (or Dennis) Hale married Huldah’s sister, Maria. No person by the name of “Harding” Dickinson existed in the Province.
Martin’s youngest son, Jeremiah Judson, had 3 children by his first wife, Emily Jane, daughter of William Dibblee Smith: Isabel Hilda Hale, Charles Hale, and Warren Phillips Hale. I am grandson of the last named. There was no issue by his second marriage.”
