The marriage certificate apparently spells his name "Manuel."

One family tree sent to me by Don Smith has him born in Perth County, Ontario.

His obituary was also sent to me by Don Smith. It says that he was born in Perth County, near London, Ontario.

The obituary mentions his marriage in 1911. That seems very late, so I am wondering if he had two wives. I will proceed on the theory for the time being.

In the text regarding the Honourable William Haley written in 1918, it was said that the only son of William and Elizabeth living then was John. He was then living in Bennington, Kansas.

The actual page reads "Cornwell" and not "Cornwall" - I have changed it . Then census information does not coincide with what I have for the children. Also, all of the children except the youngest two are shown as born in Canada.

He is in Ontario, Canada at the time of the 1871 census. He is on Film C9905, page 61, division 2. That would mean that at least the three older children were born in Canada.

In the 1929 Henderson City Directory, he was a manager at Imperial Brokers.

I found his middle initial as well in city directories. I presume it stands for Hugh.

The year of his death comes from the will of Maude.

This David (the supposedly dishonest brother) was born in 1866 and died in 1927. Maisie Dunn thought that he was born in either Warrenpoint or Belfast: however, he was born in Newry according to the church records there. He first married Margaret McClean and when she died, her sister Kate. The witnesses at the first wedding are shown as David & Margaret Kennedy and David and Catherine Kennedy at the second one, that is, Margaret (the first wife of his father) must have died in between.

According to Maisie Dunn, this David ran a building supply company in Belfast on Mansfield St. and he and his family lived in a different part of the same building which faced on Downing Street. Out of that part of the building, he ran a grocery business. He also owned other property, rows of terrace houses, in both the east and west ends of town.

In the 1911 census, he is living at 21 Mansfield St but is shown as a labourer. He has been married nine years to Catherine, so I have put in 1902 for that marriage.

When he retired in 1926, he and Kate went to North America to visit William in Calgary. They also visited Kate's sister Tillie, who worked as linen mistress in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New City. My mother remembered this visit very well when the rich Irish relatives came to Canada. Apparently Howard did as well and in particular the expectation of meeting these rich relatives. Mother remembers them giving each child about fifty cents which would have been a vast amount of money for a kid in those days. I have a number of pictures from the visit, some of which I have scanned into the tree.

David served in the Boer war and WW1. I have him in uniform for both.

I have found his will on PRONI. Probate was granted April 26, 1927 to James Gardner Morrison and James Beckett Jenkins, both estate agents. HIs estate had a value of 3,689 pounds, 14 shillings, and 7 pence. He was described as a builder living at 17 Downing Street.
