Hi Bill and David, I am wondering if your ancestor Mark Haley is the same person as the Mark Haley mentioned by Leah Townsend in her 1935 book SC BAPTISTS 1670-1805: A few people including William Haley and Mark Haley were "dismissed" from Shoal Creek Baptist Church in Franklin Co. GA so that they could become founding members of a new Baptist church (Beaverdam Meeting house) which was the beginning of Hepzibah Baptist Church on Beaverdam Creek (constituted about 1803). Shoal Creek Baptist Church in Franklin Co. GA turned into Chauga Baptist Church in Oconee Co. SC in 1811 (p. 233).
The others were Esas Harbour, John Prestrig, Stephen Poe, John Silman, Aaron Arnal, Elizabeth Prestrig, and Fancy Haley ("dismissed" in June, 1797).
The great revival (which began in KY) hit this area about 1800, more or less).
George Vandiver was pastor in 1805 (p. 303). A footnote (p. 303) mentions "Beaverdam Baptist Church at Fair Play, SC" in BAPTIST HISTORICAL RECORD, Westminster, SC Sept. 1927, quoting Beaverdam records.
Shoal Creek Baptist Church entered the Sarepta Baptist Association in 1796, sending the following delegates for the next few years: James Blair, Francis Callaway, John Carter, John Cleveland (the pastor), John Doss, William Gates, Thomas Gilbert, and Charles S. Morton. I am not tracing the Haley line - just passing this along to you.

David: I first got in touch with you two years ago when I had a question about a will made by Mark Haley (1803) in which he mentions Barzilla Harrison/Bathsheba (Zachariah) Harris. Bathsheba is my ggggrandmother and none of the Harris' reseasrchers knew who her father was, nor apparently did Haley/Hailey researchers. Your information on your GEDCOM was the first clue. That gave rise to Michael Hailey's incredible work on Hailey "Beginnings," in which he concluded that her parents were probably William and Margaret Conner Hailey. I still think there is a possibility it was Mark because Harris researchers have her birthdate wrong and she was younger than they think. Anyway, I am still trying to get ahold of a copy of that will.
My line: Haley/Hailey, Harris, Miles, Noble, Green <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Thanks so much for the updates, you have been a big help.
I have Michael's latest outline of our Haleys/Haileys. He lists Bathsheba as related to William and Margaret. I think maybe because Mark looks too young to be her father (Actually, he could be old enough), but both Mark and William were in Burke Co., NC (Morgan Dist.) in the 1790 census near Wooten Harris. Wooten had one male over 16 living with him and he had only been married a few years to Frances Adams (sister of Howell Adams). I think the male was Zachariah, his younger brother. Zachariah would have been about 16. Mark had
daughters of the right age and so did William, but why would Bathsheba's name appear in Mark's will if she wasn't related? I also think it is possible that he left her land which Zachariah sold and which gave them their stake. Zachariah bought and sold land in SC, GA and TN until he went to Illinois in 1829. As you can see, the will is a very important piece of information to me.

From what I understand, Mark the brother of Richard did go to Texas but it looks like he went back east.
