Birth: Dec. 25, 1842, Ireland
Death: May 1, 1929
DeKalb County
Missouri, USA

John Haley was born in Ireland on Dec. 25, 1842, and immigrated to the U.S. as a child. He enlisted as a private in Co. A, 102nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, on 6 August 1862 at the age of 20, and was captured while a member of a detachment sent on 24 September 1864 to relieve Ft. Henderson in Athens, AL, which was under siege by rebel cavalry commanded by CSA Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. The detachment was fighting to gain the fort, and within sight of it, when the fort was unexpectedly surrendered. Forrest then forced the relief detachment to surrender as well. He was sent to Cahaba Prison, was exchanged on 22 April 1865 and survived the explosion and sinking of the steamer "Sultana" on 27 April 1865. He was mustered out at Columbus, OH, on 20 May 1865. Following the war, he settled in northwest Missouri, where he was a farmer. John survived his first wife, married a second time, and had a total of eleven children: five from his first marriage and six from the second.
