Ellsworth Haley Family - Jay & Adams Co., IN

Today I sourced the census records of the Ellsworth Haley family in the 1900-1920 census. Ellsworth was really George David Ellsworth Haley, son of George Washington and Mary Jane (Sherrick) Haley. In 1900 & 1910 he is in the city of Portland, Jay Co., IN and in 1920 he was living in Hartford Twp., Adams Co., IN.

Ellsworth and wife Nettie Premer had no children. Nettie's widowed mother Tamosine was living with them in the 1920 census. Ellsworth's occupation in 1900 was that of photographer; in 1910 he was a laborer in a factory; and in 1920 he was a minister in the Evangelical Methodist church.

I would love to find more about his photography career, as I have seen some older photographs that have his studio listed at my parents house.
