HALEY - Sebastian Haley was born in Fairfield Co., Ohio, March 1, 1823, and departed this life in Jay Co., Ind., Aug. 19, 1900, aged 77 y., 5 m. and 19 d.  He was united in marriage with Lydia Rader, Feb. 5, 1846.  To this union thirteen children were born, of whom twelve survive.  Bro. Haley united with the Evangelical Association in his boyhood days.  He was a subscriber for the "Messenger" over 40 years.  He leaves 12 children and his aged companion with a large number of other relatives.  J.M. Smith.

Sebastian Haley (1823-1900) was my paternal 3rd-great granduncle, the brother of my ancestor, George J. Haley.  The names of twelve of his children were: Mary Ann, George, John, Frederick, Samuel, Amanda, Elizabeth A., William, Sarah, Rebecca, Jacob and Allie M.  I do not yet know the name of the 13th child, and there is much I need to gather on his descendants.

Sebastian is buried at the Mt. Zion Cemetery in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana.
