Today I sourced the 1860 & 1870 census records for the Frederick Haley family in Noble Twp., Jay Co., IN. Frederick was the brother of my 3rd-great grandfather, George J. Haley.
Frederick was a farmer and moved his family from Ohio around 1847-1848, in between the births of sons Samuel and Harvey. In the 1870 census, it is his wife, Elizabeth, who has the estate value, either she owned it or this was a transcription error. I have not traced the family beyond the 1870 census yet.
