Biographical History

David Hale (1794-1878) was a farmer in Pennsylvania and Illinois. He was the brother of Emma Hale Smith.

David Hale was born on March 7, 1794 in Harmony, Susquehanna, Pennsylvania to parents Isaac Hale and Elizabeth Lewis; he was Emma Hale Smith's older brother. Hale served as a soldier during the War of 1812. He married Rhoda Jane Skinner at Harmony, Pennsylvannia in 1823 and they had five children. In approximately the 1840s he moved to Illinois and continued to work as a farmer. While he knew Joseph Smith during his lifetime, he never joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Hale died on April 16, 1878 in Amboy, Illinois.
