  • (Child) Birth*: say 1718; Maryland
  • (Groom) Marriage*: say 1742; Bride=Margaret Summers
  • (Taxpayer) Tax roll*: 1752; Lunenburg Co., Virginia
  • (Grantee) Deed*: 25 September 1766; S. Fork, Little River/ Fairfield, Craven Co., South Carolina
  • (Deceased) Death*: say 1786; South Carolina
  • Research Note*: 3 September 2012; The Halsey family of SC, and of Pike County, GA, was originally part of the Halsell family, and is no relation to the Halsey family of Long Island, NY.

    The Halsell / Halsall family is thought to descend from Sir Henry Halsall (1483-1522) of Halsall, Lancastershire, England. His ancestry can be traced back to the 1200's.

    DNA evidence connects the American and English Halsell / Halsall families. And DNA evidence from Kenneth Halsey of Chambers County, AL, a descendant of George Halsey / Halsell Jr., connects this Halsey family to the Halsell line.

    In 1885, this Halsey family was contacted by the author of a book on the New York Halseys, and ever since then, they have thought that they were descendants of the New York Halseys. However, this has been proven not to be the case. The family appears as an unconnected line in the book on the Halsey family of Long Island, and indeed, they are unconnected.; Principal=Benjamin L. Halsey1,2
