in SAVONA, B.C. CANADA
Asks "Does anyone know where the HALE CASTLE is?
Everyone on the Davies side of the family have HALE as a middle name and as a young teen saw
a picture of the castle with a small cemetery out front (or back). I was told that the
tallest man in England was buried there and that he is a direct relation in our family tree.
They had to build a special coffin for him to be buried in. PLEASE, if you know anything
about this, could you e-mail me. Many thanks, Jim. [terraceheights$hotmail.com]
