      Subject: Re: Halladay Lines

      Dear Ken:................... written by
      ANNA HALLADAY ANDERSON, written in her 80's (very clear mind). And I quote:

      "Many years ago I urged my Father to write down what he had been told of the
      first Halladay coming to America and of his Grandfather coming to Ohio from
      Vermont so about the year 1908 he did write.
         Papa had a wonderful memory and he calls our first ancestor George but
      LYSANDER HALLADAY'S Bible gives three generations of Daniel Halladay's as the
      first generations and Lysander was a generation older than Papa. However, I
      will record it as he wrote it so the following account was written by Clark
      Lyman Halladay, son of Horace Kent Halladay, son of Eli Halladay, Revolutionary
      soldier, son of George (or Daniel), French and Indian war soldier settled in
      Connecticut about 1760 from the Highlands of Scotland.
         George Halladay the founder of our branch of the Halladay family was a
      native of the Highlands of Scotland. He first came to America as an English
      soldier in the French and Indian war.
         He was at the battle of Quebec on the Plains of Abraham when General
      Wolf was killed. When his term of service expired, he was returned to England
      where he was honorable discharged. Soon after he married there, and not long
      afterward returned to the Colonies. Settled in New Hampshire. His son, Eli
      Halladay, my grandfaather was born in New Hampshire in 1762. He was a soldier
      in the last two yeaars of the Revolution, a Minute Man 16 or 17 years old. He
      married Cathrine Stevens, a woman of Scotch and English descent.
         They settled in the southeastern part of Vermont. He was a member of
      the State Legislature nine years. He was a Justice of the Peace for many years
      and performed the marriage service for some of his children.
         Some of his older children settled in New York state, one in eastern and
      one in western New York. Horace Halladay was born in Brattleboro, Vermont, on
      October 12, 1797, came to Ohio with his father and mother family in 1816.
         In the summer of 1821 Horace went back to Massachusetts and went to
      school there at the Academy, 3 years in the fall and winter terms. He worked
      one summer for a Mr. Gore who at one time was Govenor of Massachusetts and said to be the richest man in the State at that time.
         Horace taught school one or two winters in Massachusetts and one in Vermont. When he went east he went from Sandusky to Buffalo in a little schooner that was of 13 tons measurement, a little larger than an ordinary pound fishing boat, only it had a deck and a cabin.
         It carried a cargo of potash and hides. He said they had plenty of perfumery. He was there about six years.
         Returning to Ohio, he went in partnership with his brother Able, farming, and the manufacturing of perlash and potash.
         He was maried to Pheobe Carpenter of New London Township, August 19,
      1829. They moved to Huron, Erie County in the Autumn of 1834, settled on the
      farms now owned by Henry Merthe. His Father and Mother came with them. He
      built a log house and barn and dug a well, getting the stone for it at East Norwalk. He sold that farm to Samuel P. McDonald in 1835 and bought what was then known as the Sturgis farm on the Sand Street road. He finished the barn, which was partly enclosed, he then bought 124 acres adjoining it on the east.
         One of Eli's daughters, Lucinda, married a man by the name of Goodhue.
      They had 3 children: Mary Jane, James, and George Goodhue. They lived in
      Albany New York for many years, her husband died there. She and her children
      came to Ohio. She married a man by the name of Edwin Baker. He died of cholera
      about the year 1847. The daughter, Mary Jane, married a man by the name of
      Benjamine. They had four children: Everton, Fannie,, Emma and Delos. Aunt
      Lucinda lived with Mary Jane and her family. They moved to Wisconsin in 1855.
         They afterwards moved to Nebraska where Aunt Lucinda died at the age of
      92. After Aunt Lucinda was 80 years old, she was immersed in a river in Nebraska in the winter, thru a hole in the ice. A man watching similar immersions commented "I would rather be converted in June than January" but it was said no one ever took cold from immersion.
         The two Goodhue sons went to California about 1850.
         Uncle Able married Caroline Ashley, a sister of Baxter Ashley, a jeweler of Milan, Ohio. The lived in Greenfield and Milan, then to Lansing, Michigan where he died in 1866.
         Eli's brother, Daniel who came with him to Ohio was the father of Uncle Daniel Halladay who was the father of Lysander, William and Elihu Halladay and settled near Nonroville and Norwalk, Ohio. Grandfather came to Ohio in the autumn of 1816 driving all the way from Brattleboro Vermont with horse teams. Coming with him as that time was Grandfather, Grandmother, Uncle Able, Father, Uncle George, Aunt Cathrine and Uncle Daniel. They followed the "Blazed trail". When they got to Cleveland, Ohio, they saw only 3 houses, they were near the river. Grandfather gave a man a dollar to show them the way across the river Cuyahoga out of the lake on a sandbar, the man going ahead of them on horse-back. Father said the water did not come up to the wagon box.
         He settled in Greenfield Township, Huron County. His son, George and daughter Cathrine both died in Greenfield and are buried there.
         Eli helped to form the government of Greenfield Township and was one of its officers. He lived there until 1834 when they came to Huron, Erie County, Ohio. He died in Huron Township in 1849, his wife Catherine died there in February 1842.
         He helped to organize the Presbyterian Church in Huron in 1837 and was one of its first Deacons."

         So ends what Clark Halladay wrote.
      " I remember hearing him say his Grandfather and party stopped to visit relatives in Western New York state as they came to Ohio. Undoubtable this was Eli's child who had settled in Western New York....."
