Are You My Cousin?: An Update on William Haley

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

An Update on William Haley

It does appear that William Henry Haley and George W Haley are in fact the same person. (See my post here for the background on this mystery.) William (or should I say George?) has a daughter-in-law still living who has confirmed that his name was George William Haley. No one seems to know when the name "Henry" appeared or why. Interestingly, he's not my first ancestor to alter his name.
