MRS. ANDREW HALES, one of the oldest residents of Knox township was born in Jefferson county, Ohio, November 26, 1812. She is the daughter of John Henderson, a native of Ireland, who came to America in 1790. She was married in 1857 to Andrew Hales, a worthy citizen of this county, who died in 1866. She is the mother of two children, one of whom is now living. Mrs. Hales by reason of her long residence in the county, is well supplied with interesting reminiscences of the early days, and particularly well remembers the capture of the Wells sisters at the mouth of Yellow creek, and the return of one of them from captivity, after having become the wife of an Indian.
