Notes:  Nicholas James Haley was born 7 Aug 1865, probably in Fullarton Twp., Perth, Ontario.  He was the first of twelve children of Abraham Haley and Marion Detwiller.  His brother William Henry and sister Marion Agnes (Minnie) were also born in Ontario.  His father was a farmer, and in late 1870, when Nicholas was five years old, the family moved to Kansas, settling on a homestead in Logan Township, Ottawa County, eight miles northeast of Minneapolis.  Their first home was a sod dugout, but his father later built a stone house.
Nicholas' additional siblings were born in Kansas.  These included Mary Rosa (Rose), Hannah Maria (Hattie), Elizabeth Jane, Susan May, an unnamed sibling, John Alexander, Nettie Pauline, Ethel, and Abraham Earl.  Hattie, Susan, John, and Abraham died young.

Nicholas became a farmer, never married, and lived with his parents for his entire life.  He was a member of the Odd Fellows and of Rebekah Lodge No. 61, Minneapolis.  The Ottawa County plat map of 1902 shows that he owned 80 acres of the land in Logan Township that his father had originally bought.  About 1909, Nicholas moved with his parents into the town of Minneapolis.  In the 1910 U.S. census, they were living on Third Street, and Nicholas was the only one still living with his parents.

Nicholas' father Abraham died 27 Aug 1915.  Nicholas became a victim of the influenza, and died 6 Dec 1918.  He was 53 years of age.  He was buried that same day.  A short graveside funeral service was conducted by the Rev. L.E. Cook.  The pall bearers were from the Odd Fellow Lodge.  His gravesite is located in the Highland Cemetery, Mineapolis, Kansas.
