The Hale branch dates back to a Thomas Hale, born 1798. Little is known about him but we do know that he left a small fortune that seems to have been squandered by his wife and unscrupulous lawyers. This led to a court battle over the inheritance which, in the end, was gone.

The Weslager side of the genealogy starts with the name as it appeared in Europe on the German/Austrian/Polish border. The spelling seems to have been variously recorded as Wollschläger, Wolszleier, Wolsleier, and Wollschlaeger . The Weslager spelling first appears with August Weslager (Wollschlaeger) sometime between 1852 and 1900. Supposedly, a school teacher made him change it to a more "Americanized" name. If your name is Weslager, you ARE related to all other Weslagers as this name was literally invented for and/or by this family.
