Samuel Greene HADLEY:
He ran away at the age of 14 and sailed the Great Lakes until the Civil War broke out when he enlisted. At the close of the war he settled in Cape Vincent, NY where he has a shop. When his health failed in 1870, Samuel and his wife move to the Anthony farm at Theresa. Later he went into the village of Theresa and worked in a factory and in 1881 moved to Black River where he was employed in a chair factory.
C. Arthur Hadley writes: "My father Samuel G. Hadley wa born in Cape Vincent, NY where his father Ira Hadley has settled somewhere between 1820 and 1830. Ira Hadley married Sarah Powers, who had been adopted by Symour Gree. Hence my father's middle name. Ira Hadley died in 1875. Among my earliset recollections is being at his funeral when I was four years old.
The four older children of my family were born in Cape Vincent. Then in 1870 my people moved to Theresa, NY where four more children were born, and in 1881 they moved to Black River, NY where the youngest son was born.
In Cape Vincent, Ira Hadley was a blacksmith and wheelwright. My father ran away at fourteen and sailed the Great Lakes till the War broke out, when he enlisted. At the close of the War, he settled in Cape Vincnt where he had a shop.
My father told me when I was reading "Scottish Chiefs" that his grandmother was descendend from the celebrated Scottish Family. I think Ira Hadley died in Ohio but was buried in Cape Vincent, NY He married a second time. I doubt if he has a daughter Louise."
