Samuel and Letty Halley were originally from Virginia. They settled in Mercerville, Gallia County, Ohio, where they were married in 1826. The family's last name at that time was Holley or Holly, later changed to Halley. Samuel was one of the first trustees of Guyan Township. If yo think that there may be any connection, I would love to hear from you! My e-mail is Bobbybbc@yahoo.com. Good luck with your reearch!

Surnames: Samuel Halley, Letitia and Lewis Thomas
I'm searching for proof that Letitia (Letty) Thomas Halley was the daughter of Lewis Thomas. I believe Lewis Thomas lived in Albemarle County, VA before moving to Guyan Twp., Gallia County, Ohio. Also, I found the December 17, 1822 marriage of Lewis Thomas to Sarah Calley (Halley) in Gallia County. In the 1850 Harrison Twp., Gallia Co. census, Sarah Thomas, age 63, was living near several Halley families. I wonder if she could have been the widow of Jules or Giles Halley. I'm hoping someone has further information on Letitia Thomas and Samuel Halley.

I will tell you Gallipolis has a wonderful Genology site there across from the park. It has a ton of information about the Halleys that were there. Theodosia Plymale was married to Jessy Halley. These were my great grandparents. If these are who you are talking about we are realated. In fact all halleys and holly are related from there. shelba43130@yahoo.com

Surnames: HALLEY MARTIN THOMAS LEWIS WASHINGTON
In researching the children of Presley Sylvester MARTIN b. January 8, 1822 in VA d.November 25, 1895 in MO and married December 10, 1845 to Lucinda HALLEY, b. abt 1824 in Gallia, OH, d. April 23, 1886(dau of Samuel HALLEY and Letty THOMAS), I came a cross a very helpful reference titled, "History Of Hickory, Polk, Cedar, Dade And Barton Counties, Missouri, 1889." Published by Goodspeed. Pages 926, 927.

The biography references Samuel HALLEY and Letty THOMAS HALLEY as the grandparents of Samuel N MARTIN, b.abt 1845 in OH (son of Presley Sylvester MARTIN and Lucinda HALLEY.)

Furthermore, the biography makes a direct reference to the Lucinda HALLEY MARTIN heritage in the following passage; "The maiden name of the Doctor's [Samuel N Martin]mother was Halley, and she was a great-neice of Gen. George Washington. She is a descendant of Col. Fielding Lewis, who married Elizabeth Washington, only sister of Gen. Washington."

You can find the complete article at: http://files.usgwarchives.net/mo/barton/bios/m6350009.txt

I should add in the 1880 Census for Cedar, Dade CO., MO it lists the following individuals: Presley Martin 57y, Lucinda Martin 55y, Maud Morgan 7, Herbert L Gaty 1. For Lucinda it lists both her mother and father as being born in VA.
