Birth: 1841
Ohio, USA
Death: Dec. 5, 1903
Richmond County (Staten Island)
New York, USA

Born in Ohio, Hadley wrote that on the day he was meant to leave the family for war, he had the hardest time saying goodbye to his mother. After a kiss goodbye, he returned for one more and found her "lying in a heap on the floor, crying as though her heart was breaking- and it was." Later, while on the battlefield, he recieved a letter from his sister telling him of his mother's death. Mr. Hadley mustered into Co."H", 90th Ohio Infantry on 8/28/1862 as a private. He would move up through the ranks to Lieutenant Colonel(by brevet).
In Tennessee Hadley's leg was shattered and was nearly amputated by what he called an overzealous surgeon. It was necessary to discharge him for disability on 1/20/1863 at Nashville, Tenn. He reentered the service on 3/30/1865 and was commissioned as Captain in Co. "D" of the 119th United States Colored Infantry. He was honorably mustered out on 4/27/1866. Col. Hadley admitted to having learned to gamble and drink during the war, but afterward, devoted himself to total abstinence and rescue work with the National Christian Abstainers Union in New York. He died in 1903 and is buried in Fountain Cemetery, Staten Island, New York.
