I have found her birth registration. Originally it was number 1132 on page 189. Later it became No. 039654. Her father was listed as a clerk. They lived 120 D'Arcy St. in Toronto.

Her father was clerk for the T. Eaton Company. In 1910, she was working as a clerk there too.

Lea Kennedy says that he did not marry until he was in his 50's when he lived in Vancouver. He had no known children. I have a note in my mother's hand that gives his address as 406 1640 Alberne, Vancouver B.C. V6G 1A7.

In the 1962 Voter's List, he is said to be a miner. By 1968, he and Verona were married and living in apt no. 102, 1991 Nelson Street, Vancouver.

I have several pictures of him in his WW II naval uniform. I have no idea what happened to him or his brother. I did find a scrap of paper that had an address for a Charles R. Kennedy in Regina, Sask - 1437 Retallick. There is also a telephone number for a Mary Lyn. That is probably the daughter. I must follow that up. The same scrap has an address for a David J. Kennedy in Vancouver. I have to wonder if that is his brother.

Initially the names of her parents come from the fact that she is buried in a plot with their names on gravestones there. But then I made contact with a relative on the Cook side who gave me more details. Her husband and two children are also buried there, but only her parents actually have stones.

He was christened on October 9, 1841 in Lanreath.

Here is the 1880 US Census entry for him and his family: (I expect that there is an error with the name of the child who was two years of age - she was probably "Christina" not Pristina.")

Isaac and Abraham were living next door to one another in the 1885 Kansas State Census taken on

Here is a piece that I obtained some years ago:
Mrs. Isaac Haley Page 877
Mrs. Isaac Ha1ey is the widow of the late Isaac Ha1ey, 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 Christena 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 I been born near 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 removed 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, Christena, Henry, Jacob, Wil1iam, 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 Earl Campbell and 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, ann during that time he so deported himself that as a man of business, as an honourable Christian gentleman, no man had a cleaner record or was more highly respected than Isaac Haley.
