Notes:  William Henry Haley was born 24 Jul 1867, probably in Fullarton Twp., Perth, Ontario.  He was the second of twelve children of Abraham Haley and Marion Detwiller.  His older brother Nicholas James and younger sister Marion Agnes (Minnie) were also born in Ontario.  His father was a farmer.
In late 1870, when William was three 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 infant, John Alexander, Nettie Pauline, Ethel, and Abraham Earl.  Hattie, Susan, John, and Abraham died young.

William married Gertrude Ida Peters on 6 Dec 1892 in her family's residence in Garfield Township, Ottawa County.  They first made their home in Blaine Township, Ottawa County.  Their daughter Ida was born in July 1896, and daughter Mable in April 1900.  William was a farmer, renting the land he farmed.

By 1905, William had moved his family to Garfield Township.  He owned the land he was farming, with a mortgage.  A hired hand was helping with the farm.  At some point in time, William sold one-half of his lot to Horace Smith, who married his sister Elizabeth.  William died 15 Aug 1909 from injuries caused by an accident.  On the way home from a lodge meeting, he had a buggy accident when his horses were spooked.  William was a member of IOOF Lodge No. 97, Minneapolis, and Rebekah Lodge No. 61, Minneapolis.  He was buried 17 Aug 1909 in the Highland Cemetery, Minneapolis, Kansas.
