Nothing in what I have here at home, but chronicingamerica.com has the Belmont Chronicle online and I found two articles. I am not that familiar with the web site, so I thought I would send you the URL for the search.http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/search/pages/results/?stat...
If that doesn't work for you, just go to the web site and put in Ohio for the state, 1880 for the time frame and then John Haffey. The first image, the article is in the first column towards the bottom in the Feb. 12, 1880 newspaper and
in the 4th column in the Feb 26 1880 newspaper towards the top of the page. I did bookmark the two articles separately too, so I do have them archived here, if you have a problem, I'll send them.
