I cut off at Ebenezer Haley, though there is information out there on Ebenezer's father Paul and grandfather, William out there.  The book the Haley and Healey Family Ancestry of Ebenezer Haley, California Pioneer of 1850 by Col. James B. Haley is the one of the best books on the family because of how detailed it is (my mother is even listed in the book!).  For more information on the family, the first place to consult would be this book. 

This Haley/Healey family is the same one fellow genea-bloggers Heather at Nutfield Genealogy and Carol at Reflections From the Fence are connected to. 


  1. Hi Leah, my GGG-grandparents are Ebenezer and Mary Haley. Their son Ebenezer is my GG-grandfather. I think that means we are distant cousins? I reside in Fremont and have visited their graves often. I too have found the from James Haley to be valuable. Great blog! Renee L. Martin

    1. Hi Renee, thanks for your comment. I have a lot more on the family than I have shared here. If you are interested in any of it, let me know. You can e-mail me direct at: blueomega128ATgmailDOTcom
