Eli Weldon Haley (1866-1957)

Eli Weldon HALEY was my paternal great-grandfather. The HALEY family has Swiss origins, though I've not discovered the original spelling of the surname.

The following facts about Eli's life are known:
  • Birth: He was born March 24, 1866 in Erie County, Ohio, the son of George Washington and Mary Jane (SHERRICK) HALEY.
  • Marriage: He married Cora Belle METZNER on July 21, 1888 in Jay County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1900 - he appears as the head of household in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana. His occupation was listed as farmer.
  • Census: 1910 - he appears as the head of household in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana. His occupation was listed as farmer.
  • Census: 1920 - he appears as the head of household in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana. His occupation was listed as farmer.
  • Death: He died June 14, 1957 in Jay County, Indiana.
  • Burial: He is buried in the Mt. Zion Cemetery in Jay County, Indiana.
The following facts need further research and/or documentation to complete my research:
  • Birth: The 1900 census states his birth was March 1866, but I need to find other contemporary sources that can collaborate the exact date of March 24.
  • Census: Need to document him in the 1870 census, could be in Ohio or Jay County, Indiana with his parents.
  • Census: Need to document him in the 1880 census, should be listed with his father, probably in Jay County, Indiana.
  • Census: Need to document him in the 1930 census, should be listed in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana.
  • Death: Need to obtain a copy of his death certificate from the Jay County Health Department
