Although I don't have any vital stats for Orley Hale, I do know that he was
a very respected Baptist preacher in Owen Co. My dad, Lewis Mason
(1894-1994), used to speak of him often with great admiration. I believe
that Bro. Hale also pastored the Lusby Mill Baptist Church and/or the Mussel
Shoals Baptist Church. The Mussel Shoals church, near Lusby Mill, was an
extension of the Mountain Island church.
