THE HALES
Hannah Hale and Little Prince Mad -Far-Off-Warrior aka Bird Tail King

HANNAH HALE and LITTLE PRINCE MAD- FAR- OFF-WARRIOR aka BIRD TAIL KING

Hannah Hale

LifeNotes: In the year 1777, when Hannah was 11 or 12 years old, she was abducted by the Creek Indians at a place called Roger's Fort on the Ogeechee River in present-day Taliaferro County, Georgia.

Chris Clark shares this with us:
In his book "Sketch of the Creek Country", Benjamin Hawkins writes this concerning Hannah Hale and the village laloakalka, commonly called the Fish Ponds, where she lived: "Hannah Hale resides here. She was taken a prisoner from Georgia, when about eleven or twelve years old, and married the head man of this town, by whom she has five children. This woman spins and weaves, and has taught two of her daughters to spin; she has labored under many difficulties; yet by her industry has acquired some property. She has one negro boy, a horse or two, sixty cattle, and some hogs; she received the friendly attention of the agent for Indian affairs, as soon as he came in the nation. He furnished her with a wheel, loom, and cards; she has an orchard of peach and apple trees. Having made her election at the national council, in 1799, to reside in the nation, the agent appointed Hopoithle Haujo to look out for a suitable place for her, to help her to remove to it with her stock, and take care that she receives no insults from the Indians."

Here is an excerpt form Chris's piece on Far Off Warrior:
In 1777, Hopoie Haujo, the Far Off Warrior of the Fish Ponds, and his father, Mad Dog of Tuckabatchee, led an attack on Fort Roger's which was on the Ogeechee River in present-day Taliaferro County, Georgia. This was apparently the vengeance taken for the death of the head warrior of the Tiger clan and nephew of Ishenpoaphe. In the ensuing attack on the fort, the indians captured a young girl named Hannah Hale, who was about 11 or 12 years old. She was taken to the Far Off Warrior's village known by trader's as the "Fish Ponds" and located on the Coosa River situated in present-day Coosa County, Alabama. Hannah Hale would later marry the Far Off Warrior, Hopoie Haujo, and by him have five children.
