The extract of the marriage certificate which I found in the book " " says that Christiana Near was born in Canada. As well, she is shown as born in Canada West in the January 11, 1852 census. I can no longer remember where I obtained the information that she was born in Pennsylvania. The birth dates for all of the Near Children, with the exception of Christiana, are taken from that 1852 census which means that as of the next birthday following January 11, 1852 the children were listed as being 21,19, 18, 15, 13, 11, 10, 8, 6, 5, 2, and 1. On this basis means that the birth date for Christiana would be March 15, 1842, not 1843. Wow, that is a lot of kids
There is a Henry Near right across the road from the upper William Haley on the H. R. Page & Co. 1878 Historical Atlas i.e. on part of Lot 29, Concession IV. There is also a Jacob Near right behind him. One of Christiana's brothers is Jacob. There is also a Jacob Near in the 1852 census; he has a wife Elizabeth and children Mary and Elizabeth. I suspect that William and Jacob are brothers.
Don Smith has sent me a copy of an article re her from The Biographical History of Central Kansas, Vol. II, 1902. It reads:
A BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF CENTRAL KANSAS VOL. II 1902
Mrs. Isaac Haley Page 877
Mrs. Isaac Haley is the widow of the late Isaac Haley, one of Ottawa county's leading and highly esteemed citizens, and who for many years took an active part in the public affairs of the township. He was born at Cornwall, England in 1841, a son of William and Elizabeth (Hamm) Haley. His paternal grandfather was Abraham Haley, and his maternal grandfather, Thomas Hamm, was a British soldier, having served under General Wellington in the battle of Waterloo. When a lad of eight years Isaac Haley emigrated with his parents to Canada, where he was reared to farm pursuits, and was early taught the value of industry and honesty as a preparation for the active duties of life. When twenty-one years of age he was united in marriage to Christina Near, who was born in Middlesex, Canada, in 1843, the same year in which President McKinley was born. Her father, William Near, was also a Canadian by birth, having been born near the Niagara Falls, of which locality his wife, who bore the maiden name of Mary Rathvon, was also a native. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. William Near re- moved to Middlesex county, Canada, there spending their remaining days, the mother passing away at the age of sixty-six years, while the father survived until he had reached the age of seventy-two years. He was a carpenter, cabinet maker and farmer by occupation, and both he and his wife was consistent and worthy church members. They became the parents of fourteen children, seven sons and seven daughters, namely: Nelson, Isaac, George, Elizabeth, Catherine, Elias, Christina, Henry, Jacob, William, Maryetta, Abigail, Elsie, and Margaret.
In 1870 Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Haley came to the Sunflower state, securing a homestead claim in Logan township, Ottawa county, on which they erected a small house, fourteen by sixteen feet, and in that primitive dwelling they made their home until 1885, when a commodious and attractive farm residence was erected, at a cost of fifteen hundred dollars. The farm which consists of three hundred and twenty acres of rich and productive land, is under a high state of cultivation and is further improved by large well built barns, a windmill and a beautiful grove and orchard. The fields are surrounded by three miles of well kept hedge, and this is one of the attractive and valuable farming properties of the locality.
Twelve Children blessed the marriage of Isaac Haley and his wife, as follows; Manuel, Maria, Inscho, James, Charles, Daniel, Christena Jane White, Mary Sherman, Martha Weatherby, Emma, and three deceased; W. Henry, who died at the age of two, years and seven months; and Lillian E., who was the wife of Earl Campbell and who died at the age of twenty-six years. The father of this family passed away on the 30th of March, 1899, and at his death the community mourned the loss of one of its truest and best citizens. Politically he was a third party man, and religiously held membership in the Lutheran Church. His life was a success, but his achievements were the result of patient effort, unflagging industry and self- confidence. For many years he resided in Ottawa county, and during that time he so deported himself that as a man of business, as an honorable Christian gentleman, no man had a cleaner record or was more highly respected than Isaac Haley.
Notwithstanding the above, in the 1900 US census, she is shown as the mother of 9 children, with 3 alive then. All 3 of them, Charles, Daniel, and Emma were single and living with her.
