Marriage solemnized by Martha A. Thornton
Minister

Dated at Portland, Ind., this 25th day of March 1905.

This record of the marriage of George I. Haley to Maggie M. Barr was located at the Jay County Historical Society in Portland, Indiana.

I do not know yet of a connection between this particular George Haley and any of my other Haleys in Jay County. One clue I discovered was the the minister was a Society of Friends (Quaker) minister.  I believe he is the G.I. Haley in the 1900 census, living in Dunkirk, Jay County, with wife, Minnie.  I didn't find a close match in the 1880 census.

If you are related, would love to hear from you.
