The study of Genealogy is both interesting and 
of great value. Its effects ought to be beneficial in 
maintaining the honor and integrity of a family ex- 
tending through a long line of progenitors whose 
memory should be cherished with loyal devotion to 
endless day, and whose virtues are worthy of emu- 
lation. It is commendable to be familiar with one's 
family history, and eminently proper to put it on re- 
cord in a convenient form for the benefit of future 

Such records will be of incalculable value to gen- 
erations yet unborn, and will be highly prized by 
them, and upon the authors they will lavish lasting 
praise for having preserved from oblivion the tradi- 
tions and history of the deeds and lives of the progeni- 
tors and their posterity. 

These genealogical trees will become heirlooms in 
the family, and volumes will be sought for and plac- 
ed in public libraries. In the family, too, they will 
wield an influence, as the lives of unselfish devotion 
to God, conscience, and family, of the forefathers 
are recounted, to keep unsullied the family name. 

The work has been prepared at a great sacrifice 
of time and labor. Had all responded promptly to 
communications, the work would have been far 
easier, more complete, and less time and expense 

The author acknowledges himself indebted to 
many of the family for kind favors received in the 



form of records and Other data for the work, among 
whom may be especially mentioned those who have 
very materially aided the author in the work, fore- 
most among them and of especial mention are — Mr. 
C. C. Gardner, and Will C. Headley Esq., of New- 
ark, both having collected a large amount of data, 
which they furnish for use in the work. Among 
others are— Miss Mary Headley, of Newark, N. J., 
Miss Elizabeth M. Headley, of Union, N. J., Mrs. 
Helen T. Headley, of Morristown, N. J.; and 


It will be observed that all descendants are recorded in the regu- 
lar order of birth, from the oldest down to the youngest, through- 
out the entire connections, each generation being marked con- 
secutively from lirst to last. The Roman numerals placed before 
each name designate the generation to which they belong, as — 
I. Leonard Headley, (First generation). 
II. Thomas Headley, (Second generation). 

III. Samuel Headley, (Third generation). 

IV. Joseph Headley, (Fourth generation). 

Beginning with the tirst (1) ancestor Leonard Headley. His 
children (11) generation; then follows Samuel Headley (III) gen- 
eration; and his children the (IV) generation; and so on down to 
the last of the pioneers' descendants. 

When marriages occur between members of the connection the 
husband carries the record. 

In the general index will be found the names of all descendants 
mentioned in the book, over eighteen years of age.

The Headley family of this work is believed to 
have originated with one Leonard Headley, who, 
pricr to the year 1664, came from England, landed 
at Boston; from there went to Connecticut and after- 
wards drifted to Long Island, and in the year 1664, 
with a large party of settlers and their wives, located 
and settled at Elizabeth Town, Essex County, New 
Jersey. Leonard Headley, being at that time mar- 
ried; as the records show that he took up and caused 
to be surveyed a tract of land in the name of himself 
and wife. 

Leonard Headley or his descendants soon after 
went about five miles west of Elizabeth Town, took 
up land and settled what for many years was known 
on the maps of Essex Co. (afterwards Union County) 
as Headley Town, being that part of Union township 
now known as Unionville, in which many of their 
descendants may still be found, and quite some of 
the land that was obtained by the first settlers by oc- 
cupation is still owned by the Headley family— the 
family seldom selling land— the fathers generally 
providing homes for their sons, near their own dwell- 
ing place, either by purchase or occupation. This 
trait of the family causing considerable difficuty in 
tracing of ancestors, as very few left wills, the land 
being generally divided before the decease of the par- 
ent or by the family afterward, and if deeds were 
given many were not recorded or have become lost. 
Another difficulty being found in that generally the 


family records and heirlooms were looked after by 
the female members of the family, who appear to 
have taken more interest in records and heirlooms 
than the male members, but through death and 
change of name by marriage it is very difficult to trace 
records and heirlooms through female descendants of 
a family. What little information still existed of 
the family of records and heirlooms was fast becom- 
ing lost or strayed. 

I was greatly impressed with the little knowledge 
in the possession of the majority of families 
in regard to their ancestors, many not being 
able to go back of grandparents. The want of some 
accurate, complete and enduring record was not only 
felt by myself but by many other members of the 
family, and as there were but few very old people 
left in the immediate family, it could not have been 
obtained too soon, and would have been much more 
easily obtained and more accurate had it been looked 
after years ago. 

In search for records a short time ago I became 
acquainted with Rev. A. J. Fretz, who, being con- 
nected with the family, has taken great interest in 
the work of getting records of the different branches 
of the family together, — Rev. Mr. Fretz's ability for 
work of this nature is beyond question, and through 
his kindness in consenting to take charge of and pub- 
lish the work will have the hearty approval as well 
as the co-operation of the whole famil}'. 

The ancestor of the family being among the first 
settlers of the country, his descendants are to be 
found in nearly every state of the Union, and in 
about every walk of life. 

The writer well remembers the dwelling house 
occupied by his great grandfather, Carey Headley, 


situated on the corner of what is now known as 
Valley Street and Vaux Hall Road, about Yz mile 
south of Wyoming in Union County near the Essex 
Co. line. The house being shingled on five sides in- 
cluding the roof, large wide hall-way through the 
center, timber cut from the woods and framed in 
the rough oak floors. House i>2 story dwelling, fill- 
ed in with brick to the roof. The large garret making 
a fine play ground for children, myself and other 
children often using same for that purpose, or watch- 
ing some member of the family weave carpet with 
the loom set up in the old garret. It was understood 
that the house was on the ground of the battle 
of Springfield, the left wing of the British 
army coming up the Vaux Hall Road from Elizabeth, 
for the purpose of flanking the army of Gen. Green 
at Springfield, the were check- 
ed at the east branch of the Rah way River about 
looo feet northwesterly of this old house. The old 
house showed the effects of the struggle as many 
bullet holes were in its south side, and when torn 
down, 1S74, about 25 leaden bullets were taken from 
same. Cannon balls, bayonets, and other articles of 
war equipments were around the house when I was" 
a boy , most of which relics were used in the celebration 
of the battle of Springfield in 1876, and were not re- 
turned. The lone relic known to the writer is a cop- 
per cent date 1788. I have been told that at the 
time of this battle the live-stock of the settlers was 
driven over the mountain by women members of the 

Probably the four oldest houses erected by the 
Headley family now standing, are the ones now oc- 
cupied by Joseph B. Headley, and the one adjoining, 
belonging to the estate of Warren Headley, on the 


Vaux Hall Road at Unionville, (Headleytowu). 
These houses, i, or 2 of them evidently, were built 
by Samuel Headley and one was occupied by his 
son Joseph Headley. Both houses have been re- 
modeled. Another house to the north on the same 
property, probably erected by Samuel Headley Jr.; 
and the other about one-half mile to the west on the 
Vaux Hall Road, owned and occupied by John 
Thompson Headley, now owned by Jabez Alley, — 
all of these houses w-ere erected prior to 1776, as 
their then owners took part in the struggle at that 

The records from these d\^'elling houses have been 
removed and most of them either lost or destro3'ed, 
and the part their owners took in the issue of 1776, 
or very much of it, cannot be obtained. Their own- 
ers, after taking their part in the issue of that time, at 
the close of the war, settled down to their farms 
again. Could these old houses be made to tell of the 
time and struggles of 1776, and the part that their 
owners and their sons and daughters pla5'ed, their 
history would be well worth writing and reading, but 
they tell no tales, and the living and written records 
have disappeared.

The Headley Family is undoubtedly of English 
origin, though one tradition says they came from 
Scotland. The name was in the 12th century "De- 
Haddeleigh," and in the lyatin form "de Hadleins," 
the signification of the name being "Of the woods." 
The name has in later years undergone several chan- 
ges and is now variously written; as, Headley, Hed- 
ley, Hedly and Hadiey. There is a tradition that 
two brothers, tanners and curriers by occupation, 
came from Manchester England, about 1665. John 
Pledly, one of the brothers, located himself at New 
Port, R. I., at the first settling of that place about 
1665. The name of the other brother and where he 
located is not positively known, but may have been 
Leonard Headley, pioneer of the New Jersey Head- 
leys, who located at first, perhaps, somewhere in 
Connecticut, and later at Elizabethtown, N. J., 
whither he came with Sir George Carteret in 1665, 
and where on the igth day of February 1665, he took 
the oath of Allegiance and fidelity to King Charles 
IT. and to be true and faithful to the Lord Proprietors. 
The following is a copy of the Oath as recorded 
at Trenton, N. J. Book I. pg. 50. Secy. State Of- 

"You do swear upon the Holy Evangelist contain- 
ed in this book to bear true faith and Allegiance to 
our Soveraine Lord King Charles the 2nd and his 


lawful successors and the Government of this Pro- 
vince of New Jersey as long as you shall continue an 
inhabitant under the same without any equivocations 
or mental reservation whatsoever and so help you 

(Signed) Leonard Headley. 

The oath was taken by 65 persons in which num- 
ber was comprised Luke Watson's Company of sixty 
emigrants. Leonard Headley evidently being one of 
five persons who joined the company at Klizabeth- 
town and was one of the original founders of that 
place. Land at Elizabethtown was apportioned to 
Leonard Headley in the same proportion as to the 60 
associates. In the first company of emigrants no per- 
son was admitted but church members. 

On the 6th of October, 1665, a warrant for 120 
acres of land was granted to Leonard Headley within 
the bounds of Elizabethtown of upland and meadow 
in proportion, in right of himself and wife. Liber 2. 
Cartaret Book page 3. 

In pursuance of above warrant, on October 14, 
1678, the lands were laid out to Leonard Headley and 
filed in right of himself and wife, viz — (.1) First, a 
bouse lot of 4 acres bounded by John Ogden Jr. and 
the highway; Second, upland of 8 acres at Brocketts 
Spring, along the brook adjoining Hur Thompson's 
and a swamp; Third, upland of 6 acres lying on the 
way to the point bounded in part by John Ogden Jr. 
and John Woodruff; Fourth, a tract of 20 acres on 
Elizabethtown Creek adjoining Daniel De Hart, John 
Ogden Jr., Joseph Secords, Robert Yauquellin and 
J. Morris; Fifth, a tract of upland of 65 acres on n. 
E. end of plains adjoining Benjamin Park, Jonathan 
Ogden and Margaret Baker; Sixth, a tract of 
meadow land of 14 acres adjoining Margaret Baker in 


the great meadow west by a small Island, and adjoin- 
ing Samuel Morris. 

Leonard Headley died February 1683, leaving an 
estate valued at ^99. 3. S*^ 6. d. 

He was a weaver, and also owned a sawmill. 
He married Sarah, who, in 1684, was the wife of 
*Robert Smith and was appointed administratrix of 
his estate as Sarah Smith.

The exact location of Leonard Headley 's home is 
not known, but evidently was in or near to Eliza- 
beth. Eater generations of the family pushed a little 
farther west into the then unbroken wilderness, and

||. Thomas Headley. He is supposed to have been 
a son of Leonard Headley. Nothing is known of him 
except that his name appears on papers etc. in the 
city of Elizabeth about 1700 — 1702. 

Of the family of Thomas Headley, nothing is 
positively known, but is supposed to have been the 
father of Samuel Headlej^Sr,, of "Headleytown." 

Of the early family connections of the Headley 
family but little is known and is very uncertain. In 
December, 1702, John Parker died, leaving his pro- 
perty to Robert Smith of Egg Harbor, widow Sarah 
Browne, Thomas Headley, and the church at Eliza- 
bethtown. This Thomas Headley was in all proba- 
bility a son of Leonard Headley, and possibly may 
have been a son-in-law of John Parker. 

John Parker, Robert Smith and John Ogden were 
from Long Island. The naming of Thomas Headley 
in the will of John Parker may show a connection be- 
tween the families of Headley and Parker.

Unionville), N. J., evidently where Joseph B. Head- 
ley now lives, and wasthe founder of "Headley- 
town. ' ' The property accumulated by Samuel Head- 
ley consisted of large tracts of land in the vicinity. 
They were members of the Presbyterian church at 
"Connecticut Farms" and were buried there, but 
there is nothing to identify their graves. 

Connecticut Farms are in the northern part of the 
township four miles north-west from Elizabethtown 
and six miles south-west from Newark. Previous to 
1749 a number of families from Connecticut purchas- 
ed a large tract of land there and gave it the name of 
"Connecticut Farms." The name of the village has 
since been changed to Union. At this place the 
Presbyterian church, still known as the "Conn. 
Farms" Presbyterian church, was established 
some time prior to 1749. The tirst pastor of whom 
there is any knowledge, was Rev. Mr. Horton. 
Subsequent pastors have been Revs. Thane, Derbe. 
Hait, Fish, Smith, Thompson, Street, Converse, 
and Carnaille the present (1904) pastor. 

The first church building was a wooden structure. 
The date of its erection "is not known, as the church 
and records were burned by the Hessians during the 
Revolutionary war. It is, however, quite probable 
that it was built sometime during the early settlement 


of "Conn. Farms," and probably is one of the old- 
est Presbyterian churches in the State of New Jersey. 
Here worshiped many of the Headley ancestors— and 
in the quiet cemetery adjoining, all that was mortal 
of the ancestor Samuel Headley, and many of his 
descendants were laid to rest, there to await the 
resurrection of the just. At the close of the Revo- 
lutionary war, the church was rebuilt by the people 
with stone from their own quarries, brick from their 
own brick kilns, and timber from their own wood- 
lands. It is still standing, and although improved 
within, the walls are the same, and it stands on near- 
ly the same site occupied by the first dwelling. 

Samuel Headley made his will May 30, 1745, 
and reads as follows: —

lY- Mary Headley, m John Muchmore. He was b 
1720, d Sept 15, 1784. 


ly. Joseph Headley, b about 1718, d Oct 1785. It 
is not known whom he married. He was a farmer 
and lived at first in Headleytown on land inherited 
from his father Samuel Headley Sr. evidently where 
Joseph B. Headley now lives. He later purchased 
and remov^ed to the property in Headleytown known 
as Vaux Hall, of which he was the first Headley own- 
er of record. It is also probable that he erected the 
house on this property and gave it the name it has 
since borne. Vaux Hall is located about two miles 
from the village of Union, and is near the Wyoming 
and Maplewood stations on the Delaware and Lacka- 
wanna Railroad. It was quite a large Colonial re- 
sidence. It had a frontage of at least 50 feet which 
faced to the south. Had a large wide hall through 
it, with rooms on both sides. It had verj' large fire 
places with fixtures for large heavy iron kettles. On 
the second floor was a loom for carpet weaving which 
was destroyed about 1870. The house was pierced 
by many bullet holes, said to have been made by the 
British during the Revolutionary war. At this time, 
and perhaps earlier, it was used as a tavern. The 
same dwelling was afterwards owned and occupied by 
Gary Headley. Timothy Headley, Wickliff Headley, 
until about seven years ago. About 1870 the old 
dwelling was torn down and a more modern one erect- 
ed on the site. 

During the war of the Revolution there were 
fought the battles of Conn. Farms atid Springfield 
partly on Headley property, and in which John 
Thompson Headley, Cary Headley, and others of the 
Headley family fought against the foe. On the 6th 
of June, 1780, Gen. Mathews was sent with 5,000 
men from Staten Island, with orders to penetrate New- 
Jersey and attack Washington at Morristowji. 

The next day the British took possession of Eliza- 
bethtown and began their march toward Springfield, 
intending to defeat the Continentals there and proceed 
on to Morristown. The route taken was along the 
Galloping Hill Road, which led through Connecticut 


Farms, (now the village of Union). Here the mili- 
tia offering resistance, the enemy opened fire, de- 
feated the handful of men, and applying the torch 
to the few buildings in the village, they continued 
on their way toward Springfield. Warning of the 
enemy's approach was given, and at Springfield the 
British met a detachment of men from Washington's 
campat Morristown. A sharp skirmish ensued, in 
which the British were driven back to the coast. 

For two weeks after their repulse at Springfield 
the enemy hovered around in the vicinity of Eliza- 
beth Town, afraid to attack the continentals with the 
force at their command. On June 22, Clinton came 
up from the south with additional troops, and an- 
other move against Washington was planned. It 
was decided to draw the Americans into a general 
engagement and capture the stores at Morristown. 
Feigning an expedition to the Hudson Highlands, 
Clinton deceived Washington who marched away in 
that direction with a considerable body of men. 
General Green was left to guard Springfield and the 
country west and north of the village. 

When Washington was well on his way Knyphau- 
sen marched along the Galloping Hill Road with 5000 
infantry, twenty pieces of artillery and 800 cavalry, 
and on the 23d attacked General Green at Spring- 
field. The battle waged all day. At one time it 
seemed as though the British would win. They suc- 
ceeded in forcing a passage across the bridge span- 
ning the Rahway river there, but at last the conti- 
nentals repulsed them and sent them scurrying back 
along the road up which they had marched so confi- 
dently that morning. So great was their confusion 
that they ran until they reached the coast. The 
British lost 300 men, while the American loss was 


less than loo. The British had 6000 men to the 
Americans 1500. 

Joseph Headley attended the Presbyterian church 
at Conn. Farms and was buried there. He made his 
will Oct. 25, 1785, and reads as follows: —

At an early age he learned the trade of pressman. 
He became an expert in his line and was considered 
one of the most skillful woodcut pressmen in the 
country in his time. For a number of years he was 
superintendent in the pressroom of the Frank Leslie 
Publishing Co. , resigning to become identified with 
the manufacturing of printing ink with the W. D. 
"Wilson Co. whose plant is in Long Island City with 
offices in Manhattan. Soon after marriage he joined 
Young Americus Hook and Ladder Company, and 
when many of his associates went to war Mr. Ray 
was unable to do so, as he was minus one of his 
thumbs, which was cut off by being caught in a print- 
ing press. Mr. Ray, in the seventies, was an active 
factor in Republican politics. At the time each 
Ward had two Aldermen, who would hold sessions 
one day as Aldermen, and the next day as Super- 
visors. The salary was $2,000 per annum. The late 
Demas Strong and Mr. Ray were the two first Alder- 
manic representatives under the act of the charter. 
Mr. Ray was re-elected two terms, and for three 
years was President of the Common Council. He 
frequently performed the duties of acting Mayor. 
He also served as a commissioner of Charities, and 
was President of the Board for four years. Mr. Ray 
was one of the prominent members of Eureka Divis- 


ion, No. 187 Sons of Temperance, and at one time 
was Grand Worthy Associate of the Grand Division. 
He was a charter member of Williamsburg Lodge, 
Knights of Honor, to which he belonged at the time 
of his death. More than 45 years ago he joined 
Amity Lodge, No. 383 F. and A. M. of New York., 
but on coming to Brooklyn he joined Manuel, No. 
636 of Brooklyn. He was a member of DeWitt Clin- 
ton Chapter No. 142 of Royal Arch Masons, and De- 
Witt Clinton Commandery, No. 27 Knights of Tem- 
plar, for more than a quarter of a century, and be- 
longed to the Lincoln Club. Attended Methodist

Phebe Stiles of Elizabeth, N. J., daughter of Wm. 
Stiles, Apr 1, 1781. She was b Mar 15, 1762, d 
about 1830. Gary Headley was b in Union twp. 
Union Co. N. J., where he lived and died, and dur- 
ing his life-time followed the pursuits of farming. 
He was a man of much enterprise and was highly 
esteemed by his fellow townsmen. He resided on 
what is now known as Valley Street, about J2 mile 
south of Wj'oming, and owned at least 150 acres. 
When they were married Mrs. Headle}' was present- 
ed with two slaves, a man and a woman. Cary 
Headley was a soldier in the Revolutionary war. He 
entertained George Washington and others in his 
command at Vaux Hall, and in his woods that after- 
wards belonged to his grandson John S. Headley, 
George Washington and his men knelt beside a log 
and prayed for victor}' for the patriot army. Cary 
Headley 's house was surrounded by the British for 
three days. His wife and servants took the cat- 
tle and horses over the back side of the Orange 
mountain and remained there with them until the 
British left. Before going she threw her silver 
spoons, pewter plates and platters in the well, also 
a case of silver was buried in the big wall, and after 
the war all was recovered. After the war Cary 
Headley furnished an ox, which was roasted on the 


Orange mountain, and George Washington partook 
of it. Nothing further of especial interest is known 
of Cary Headley'swar record. The place in which 
he had lived contained a number of relics, among 
which were found in later years, an old carpet loom 
in the garret, also bayonets, cannon balls, old mus- 
kets, and continental money, etc. It has been said 
that the house had been more than once fired into by 
the British, and when torn down a large number of 
bullets were found imbedded in same. A part of the 
battle of Springfield was fought on Cary Headley's 
farm. Farmer, Presby.

Mr. Headley 's boyhood years were spent on the 
family estate in Union twp. After acquiring a prac- 
tical education he repaired to Brooklyn, N. Y. and 
was apprenticed to Davis M. Afflick with whom he 
acquired the craft of a mason. During the year 1846 
he embarked in business as a builder and continued 
with success until 1856, when being attracted by the 
varied advantages of the spot upon which his birth 
occurred, he returned again to Union twp. and locat- 
ed upon a portion of the property of his ancestor, 
Cary Headley. To this he succeeded partly by in- 
heritance and partly by purchase, then his sole 
occupation was farming. The excitements attending 
political life offered no charms for hira, hence he left 
to others both the honors and rewards of political 
life. He was a man of unassuming manner, 
possessing many traits of character which are the 
exponents of success in life, and which command 
the respect of the community, Mr. Headley and 
family were worshipers at and supporters of the 
Methodist Episcopal church of Springfield, X. J.

He married second wife, Pbebe (Baldwin) Gardner. 
C: Joseph, Samuel, William, Phebe. He made his 
will in 175S, and at this time he lived in Essex Co. 
N. J., and afterwards removed to the Wyoming 
Valley, Pa., and was one of the few that escaped 
from the terrible massacre that followed. Robert was 
very friendly with the Indians, one Indian in parti- 
cular was a ^reat friend to Robert and just before the 
massacre warned him to leave as the town would be 
burned that i.ight. Robert said to the Indian, "You 
wouldn't hurt me would you?" Indian says, "In 
time of war Indian knows no friend." So Robert 
got an old high top Pennsylvania wagon and put iti 
it all the goods he could and at 4 o'clock that after- 
noon of July 2, 1778, started with his wife, sons 
Joseph, Samuel, William, daughter Phebe, for New 
Jersey. After going through the wilds of Pennsyl- 
vania and New Jersey, he finally reached the Hope- 
well mountains in Sussex Co. in the beginning of the 
winter of 177S, where he Luilt a cabin on what is 
now the Hayward property and passed the winter. 
Early in the spring of 1779, he located at Milton, 
Morris Co. where he built a log house which is 
still standing on the Headley Homestead and 


has continued in the Headley name ever since, and is 
now owned bj'- Frank J . Headley, a great grandson 
of Robert Headley. The original lands owned by 
Robert Headley consisted of about six hundred acres 
and included lands now owned by Edgar H. McCor- 
mick; the present Headley Homestead, Charles H, 
Jennings, William M. Headley, and Edward R. Head- 
ley; and perhaps other lands. Nothing is known of 
his children by his first wife, except that the daugh- 
ter Mary was married to Michael Stagg

J. Mar 10, 1799, d in Franklin Co. Ohio, Sept 18, 
1870. When a small boy William Headley was 
bound out to his Uncle William Headley near Mil- 
ton, N. J. with whom he remained until the age of 
21 years, when he received an "outfit," which 
consisted of a horse, bridle, saddle, a suit of clothes, 
and $50.00 in money. He then took a lease of clear- 
ing a piece of timber land, and after clearing a spot, 
he built a little shanty of poles and clapboards for 
shelter, and settled down to work clearing the land

Ohio and were aiuoiig the first settleri;. 


and burning charcoal, carting the latter 25 miles to 
market. Thus he began laying the foundation for 
future prosperity. When he had accumulated to- 
gether $1500.00 he removed in rSii to Franklin Co. 
Ohio, and became one of the pioneer settlers of that 
county, selecting a location in Jefferson township, 
at what is now known as Headley's Corners. After 
locating his future home, he returned to Sussex Co. 
N. J. with a number of horses. In the .spring of 
1812, he set out for his Ohio home on horse back. 
On the trip a willow twig served as a riding whip, 
which on arriving at his new home he stuck into the 
ground, and to-day at the front of the old Homestead 
stands a very large and beautiful weeping willow 
tree, a memento of his journey. 

At that time there were no roads leading to 
Columbus, and trips to that place were made on 
horse-back over a path marked by blazed trees. 

William Headley in company with his brother 
Samuel Headley built a saw mill and grist mill on the 
Black Lick, a stream running through William Head- 
ley^s farm. The brothers conducted the mills in part- 
nership for some time, after which William Headley 
purchased his brother's interest in the mills and lands. 
The mills did duty for many years, and were finally 
washed away in a flood many years ago. 

Great changes have taken place since the first 
representative of the name came to Ohio where they 
found large tracts of uncultivated land, forests which 
stood in their primeval strength, and a few cabins to 
indicate the progress of civilization. As the years 
passed William Headley prospered in his business 
and at the time of his death he owned 500 acres of 
valuable land all acquired through industry and good 
management. He was the first Postmaster at Head- 


ley's Corners, and held the office for manj' years, 
dispensing the mail from his residence. He was not 
a member of any church, but a Universalist in faith, 
and contributed quite largely to religious work. C:

Vl|. Ezekiel W. Headley, b in Franklin Co. Ohio, 
Dec 19, 1830, m Mary M. Foster Feb 14, 1883, at 
Oregon, Mo. P O Oregon, Mo. He attended 
school during his youth at " Headley 's Corners." In 
the spring of 1852, he accompanied an emigrant 
train of 36 men, including his brother William Head- 
ley, to California. At St. Joseph, Mo. they pur- 
chased their equipments for the journey, consisting 
of nine wagons, with three yokes of oxen to each 
wagon. After a journey of 126 days, they reached 
their destination at Eureka Quartz Mines, and Poor- 
man's Creek, where they found gold in considerable 
quantities. In the bed of Poor-man's Creek they 
found not only small pieces of gold but often large 
nuggets of great value. Before becoming acclimated 
he took "mountain fever" and came near to death's 


door, but recovered, and during his convalesence, 
while not able to work, he emploj^ed his time read- 
ing the Bible from beginning to end. 

They remained iu California two j^ears; endured 
many hardships, many times sleeping beside logs 
with an umbrella for protection from the rain until 
a cabin was built. In the spring of 1854 he came to 
New York City, where he remained sight-seeing for 
about a month, after which he went to Philadelphia 
to get his gold dust coined, (about $5,000), and then 
returned to the parentel home in Ohio, where he en- 
gaged in farming for his father in the farming season 
and teaching school in the winter. After being thus 
employed for two years, he entered Central College, 
Ohio, remaining one year, taught one term of school, 
then went to Westerville College, Ohio, for two 
years, after which he taught three terms of school. 
In the spring of 1859, he in company with his cousin 
George Havens went to St. Joseph, Mo., where they 
found the City full of people with the "Pike's Peak 
fever," which they also contracted, and fell in line, 
purchasing their wagons at $135.00 each, with four 
yokes of oxen to each wagon, which they loaded 
with flour, groceries, dried fruits, patent medicine, 
lard, bacon, etc. On arriving at the Peak they put 
up a Grocery store, and connected with it a restur- 
ant, and found ready sale for every article in their 
line, which was soon disposed of at a very satisfac- 
tory profit. They invested their money in emigrant 
cattle and located on a rancho in Ray Co. Mo., 
where he engaged in farming until the breaking out 
of the Civil war in 1 86 1, when he joined the Home 
Guards, Company C, and was appointed by Col. 
Hale, on the Colonel's staff and sent to St. Joseph, 
Mo. as Regimental Commissary Sargeant, for the 


4th Provisional Regiment, E. M. M. He remained 
it: this office two years. At the close of the war 
there came an order to reform themselves into com- 
panies, and he was appointed by Gov. Fletcher, 2nd 
Lieutenant. However, as the war was decidedly 
settled the companies were soon disbanded, and Mr. 
Headley once more returned to farming and stock 
raising. In 1868, he sold his Ray Co. farm and 
went to DeKalb Co. Mo., \A'here, in 1856, he had 
entered a half section of land, which he improved 
and made his home for 15 years. This property he 
sold Mar i, 1904, for $12,840. He is now the 
owner of a fine farm in Holt Co. Mo. of 200 acres 
valued at $90.00 per acre, and where he expects to 
remain until called by his Divine Master. He,

with his children around his bed. His wife survived 
him some 12 years, and died after a long and inter-

1791. Sbe was b at Westfield, N. J. Dec 20, 1771, 
d Feb 15, 1844. His principal occupation was the 
making of Mast Hoops for sailing vessels. He also 
owned a fine farm at Headleytown, where he died, 
and which he operated successfully. Samuel Head- 
ley was the personification of love and kindness to all 
with whom he came in contact. He never would 
allow himself to speak harshly or unkind to any one. 
His grandson, Mr. Wm. E. Mooney, who, when a 
mere child, was a member of Mr. Headley 's family 
for a great part of fifteen years, says, he was often 
in his way, but instead of commanding him harshly 
to get out of the way, he would send him off on 
errands, or would give him some of Dr. Watts' 
hymns, or a chapter in the Bible to commit to 
memory, which, from the love he bore to his grand- 


father, he cheerfully performed. Samuel Headley 
not only applied the law of kindness to human kind, 
but to the brute creation as well. Mr. Mooney re- 
lates that he and several other boys were one day 
discovered by his grandfather making sport of a large 
toad to see it try to escape, when he said to them in 
the kindest and most pleading manner: "Oh, I am 
so sorry that 5'ou should take delight in tormenting 
that poor creature. Don't 50U know that the same 
God who made you made the toad also?" Thus ap- 
pealing to their sympathies they promised him never 
again to practice unkindness towards anything. The 
law that Christ laid down — "Render unto Caesar the 
things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things 
that are God's," was uppermost in his mind and 
was his favorite text; and he spared no pains to in- 
still into the youthful minds about him the principles 
of strict justice and truth. While he was not in the 
habit of praising an}' one personally, lie would man- 
age to have some old person of his acquaintance tell 
the youngsters "Uncle Sam saj'S you are good boys." 
He Vv'ould say, "Boys never attempt to elevate your- 
selves by traducing some one else, for as sure as you 
do 5'ou will find it like riding on a wheelbarrow 
wheeling yourself. " 

In the fall of 1S40 he became afflicted with a 
cancer. He bore his suffering with the greatest 
christian fortitude, often exclaiming: "The God I 
love, suffered for me, and should not I endure for 
him? They that would reign with Christ must 
also suffer with Him." And again he would say, 
"Oh, dear boys, learn to love the Savior now so that 
you ma)' have nothing to regret when you arrive at 
my age. He is all my comfort now . " He died as 
he had lived, loved and respected by all that knew 


him. Children: Esther, Rebecca, Stephen, Eliza, 
Samuel, Moses.

VI. Rev. Stepbeii Headley Meeker, b Oct 17, 1799, lu-. He tc'^ad- 
iiated at Columbia College in 1821, and after his theological course 
was licensed as a minister of the Reformed church in l>s24, and in 
Augof this year he supplied the Old Bushwick Reformed church, 
and in December following he received and acce))ted a call to be- 
come its pastor, and was duly installed in Feb 1835. 

The congregation then worshiped in the old octagonal church, 
erected in 170.5. In 1839 this church was torn down and a new 
church erected on the same site. 

In May 18:JU Mr. .Meeker accepted a call to a church in Jersey City, 
but a strong mutual attachment had sprung up between him and 
the members of the Bushwick church, and in the following Novem- 
ber in compliance with an earnest requisition from his former par- 
ishoners, he returned, remaining their pastor until his death, and by 
them was regarded with almost idolatrous affectir'n. 

At the fiftieth anniversary of Mr. Meeker's settlement over this 
church he stated that he had not been kept from his i:)ulpit by sick- 
ness but one Sabbith in forty years, that he had celebrated com- 
munion in the church 200 times, had married 107(5 couples, and at- 
tended 1275 funerals. During the long period of his ministry he de- 
voted himself to the welfare of his congregation with singular fidel- 
ity. He was the father of five daughters and two sons. One of the ^/ 
sons died in early childhood, and the other at 19 years. -One of the ^ / e 
daughters married but had no children.  jiju^

lY- Isaac Headley, b — , d — , m Piatt, of 

New Jersey. He was probably the eldest son of his 

father, and with the exception of a few shilling had 

received his full share of his father's estate, prior to 

the making of his father's will in 1745. He probab- 
ly lived for a time in *Morris Co. N. J., and perhaps 

later removed either to New York State or to Penn- 
sylvania. Three brothers, evidently sons of the 
above Isaac Headley, by name of Samuel, James 
and Richard, removed from New Jersey to Luzerne 
Co. Pa. Samuel Headley was one of the minute 
men during the Revolution, and Richard was an en- 
listed soldier. About the time of the Wyoming mas- 
sacre these three brothers escaped to Chemung Co. 
New York, but later Samuel Headley returned to 
Exeter, Pennsylvania. There may have been other 
children besides the three brothers mentioned.

*J. v. B. Headley of Wyoming Co. Pa. says his grandfather 
(Samuel Headley) was born in Morris Co. N.J. 

At some time a descendant of Samuel Headley Sr. (who made 
his will 174,5), settled in Morris Co. N. J three brothers, des- 
cendants of same named Samuel, .James and Richard, came to Lu- 
zerne Co. Pa. 

Boyd Headley of Wilkesbarre, Pa. writes (189.5) that Mrs. J. S. 
Headley and son W. C. Headley of Newark N. J. have the old family 
Bible with records of the family for a century back, indicating that 
he, (Boyd Headley) descends from the same Headley line as Mrs. J. 
S. Headlev and son.

dier in the Revolution.

11 . Abner Headley is supposed to have been a son 
of Leonard Headley, but nothing is known of him 
except that his name appears on records at Elizabeth 
N. J. 1700— 1702. 


III. Robert Headley, b— , d at "Conn. Farms" 
between Rah way and Elizabeth, N. J. It is not 
known whon he married. The children as far as 
known were *Phebe and Isaac. 

*There is some uncertainty as to the ancestry of Pliebe and 
Isaac Headley. "Aunt" Polly Mintou, a grand-daughter of Phebe 
(Headley) Gardner, said her great grandfather's name was Robert 
Headley, but afterwards said bhe was not sure that it was Robert. 
However, his ancestry is not positively known, but as he lived at 
"Conn. Farms," iu the immediate vicinity in which the descendants 
of the Emigrant Leonard Headley of Elizabethtewn lived, it is 
quite probable that he may have been a grandson of Leonard Head- 
ley and a brother of (111) Samuel Headley, Sr. of "Headleytown." 

Will C. Headley, Attorney of Newark, N. J. writes: "It is my 
opinion that Isaac Headley, b 1735, is a son of Robert Headley, 
brother of Samuel Headley who made his will in 1745." 

Mr. C. C. Gardner of Newark, N. J. who has collected consider- 
able data of the Headley family writes: "Richard Headley, b 1742, in 
Westchester, N. Y., married a Drake, and had Samuel and Robert; 
possibly Phebe and Isaac were grandchildren of one of these men 
Samuel or Robert-'" 


IV. Phebe Headle}', b at "Conn. Farms," Aug 21, 
1731, d Sept I, 1764, m Thomas Gardner* in 1750. 
He was bat Westchester, N. Y. Mar 2, 1724, d Oct 
I, 1795. Soon after his father's death, which oc- 
curred in 1733, he came to Essex Co. New Jersey, 
and settled in Springfield, then called "Newark 
township." Although he may have lived at first in 
what is now the city of Newark, considering the fre- 
quency with which his name is mentioned in con- 
nection with the great land riots at Newark from 
1745 to 174S. The cause of these disturbances was 
the contention between the settlers and the English 
proprietors, concerning the title to the lands. The 
settlers held under their Indian title and refused to 
recognize any other. Suits against the settlers were 
decided in favor of the proprietors, and many of the 
former were thrown into jail. Their fellow towns- 
men, however, would not stand this and several 
times in the years 1745-46-48 they broke into the 
jails and liberated those incarcerated by order of the 
proprietors. In 1748 Thomas Gardner, Junr. and 
Benjamin Gardner were indicted on the charge of 

*Great grandson of Henry Gardner; grandson of John Gardner^ 
and son oi Tliouuis Gardner. The named Henry (iardner, w lu> 
probably eame from Europe, lived and died at Westehester, N. V., 
wbere he is known to have been as early as KIC)."). He was married 
to Elizabeth, daughter of John Cromwell, about 1(>(U. 

John Gardner, eldest son of Henry, was b Mar :.'5, ItVTO, m Han- 
nah , and probably died before his only son Thomas beeanie 

of age. The latter, Thomas (iardner, b at Westchester, N. Y. about 
1700, lived and died there. He was married to Sarah, daughter of 
William and 8arah Smith. He made his will Apr:^l, ITo--', and died 
in 1T:«. His ehiWlren were— Thomas, benjamin, Haiuiah, Elizabeth, 


being members of a party that took Amos Roberts 
from jail. The ofHcial account of the matter states 
that on the 28th of November Amos Roberts was 
committed by the Sheriff to goal on a Process of 
Treason. Towards evening a large crowd surround- 
ed the goal in riotous and tumultous manner, and, 
having it open took from thence the said Amos Rob- 
erts. These riots which were frequent in the colony 
were at the time when there were Jacobite risings 
in Scotland and a revolt in India. The revolution- 
ary spirit was caught by colonists and the trouble 
marks a growing desire on their part to throw off the 
English Yoke. Soon after these disturbances Thom- 
as Gardner* was married to Phebe Headley. She 
was doubtless the daughter of Samuel Headley whose 
will dated 1744-names wife Mary and eight children. 
Thomas Gardner is buried with the greater portion of 
his family in the old cemetery at Springfield, the 
inscription on his tombstone reading — "In memory 
of Thomas Gardner, who died Oct i, 1795, in the 
72 year of his age."

Mr. Headley attended Hamilton and Amherst 
colleges, receiving his degree from the latter. At 
one time he and his brother J. T. Headley were both 
in charge of a New York academy, as assistant and 
principal respectively. While teaching in the acad- 
emy at Auburn, N. Y. he entered upon the study 
of law under Ex-Gov. Hubbell of New York State, 
and was admitted to practice at the New York bar 
by the Supreme Court of the state in 1845. But in 
accordance with his mother's wishes and a growing 
desire on his own part, he left the bar for the Theo- 
log cal Seminary at Auburn, N. Y., where he grad- 
uated and became pastor of the Presbyterian church 
at Adams, Mass. This pastorate was followed by 
charges at Sandwich, Mass. in 1854, and Plymouth 
and Greenfield, Mass. in 186 1, in which latter place 
he had his longest and most fruitful pastorate. Since 
then his time was devoted largely to writing books 
and literary pursuits. Like his brother, J. T.

Headley, he wrote largely on historical subjects; by 
many their works were regarded as the dawn of a 
new era in that department of literature, as they en- 
deavored to take History and Biography out of the 
dry place into which they had fallen and clothe them 
with real life and render them enjoyable and pro- 
fitable reading. Mr. Headley's works comprise, "Em- 
press Josephine;" "Mary Queen of Scots;" "Lafay- 
ette;" "Napoleon;" "Louis Kossuth;" "Secret 
Service of the U. S. in the Civil War;" "Half Hours 
in Bible Lands;" "Court and Camp of David;" 
"Women of the Bible;" "Evangelists in the Church;" 
"Life and Labors of Geo. F.Pentecost;" "Islands 
of Fire, or Iceland;" "Massachusetts in the Re- 
bellion." He also wrote the lives of Gens. Grant, 
Sherman, Ericson, Sheridan, Mitchell, Lincoln 
and other public men. Having a personal acquaint- 
ance with Gen. Grant and other generals he wrote 
authoritatively and not wholly on borrowed data. 
When Louis Kossuth was in this country he met and 
conferred with him. Being a modest man, under- 
estimating his own achievements, he avoided pub- 
licity and honors proffered him. The main purpose 
of his whole career was to influence thought intelli- 
gently and morally. Fame and wealth never tempt- 
ed him to lose sight of his high ideal and wish to in- 
struct and benefit mankind. While hfe reached, per- 
haps, a larger audience by his books than was pos- 
sible by the pastoral relation, his devoted and effec- 
tive service was given, first of all, to the ministry, 
which always held the supreme place in his heart.

She was b June 10, 1779, in New Jersey. In his 
youth he was bound out to a German farmer in Sus- 
sex Co. New Jersey. After marriage he engaged in 
farming in Sussex Co. N. J. until 1817, when, with 
his wife and four sons he started for Ohio, which 
was then "The West." The trip over the moun- 
tains and through the dense forest was made in a one 
horse wagon. To attempt a trip of this kind with a 
wife and four small children, must certainly have re- 
quired some genuine pioneer grit. They settled on 
Bull Creek, near what is now Waterford, in Colum- 
biana Co. C: Sarah, David, Thomas, Aaron,

there to Mercer County, Pa. where he purchased 100 

*His ancestry is not kuowu, but as he was boru iu New Jersey

acres of land from Thos. Robinson for a consideration 
of $6.00 per acre. This farm and the surrounding 
country was all dense woods. He proceeded at once 
to build a double log house, one fourth of a mile 
south of the village of Hadley. In 1847 he sold 75 
acres to Ward & Russell, on which they erected the 
Old Mineral Ridge Furnace, and the same year Mr. 
Headley purchased 100 acres about Yz mile east of the 
former 100 acres. To the log house already on this 
place he built an addition and moved his family there 
in the spring of 1848. In 1857 he sold the place and 
bought 160 acres where the town of Hadley, Pa. now 
stands, and built thereon the house known as the 
Hadley Homestead, which still remains in the famil}', 
being now owned by Mr. H. S. and Margaret Jane 
(Hadley) Lj'ons. A few years later Davdd Headley 
bought 125 acres adjoining this on the west, making 
in all a farm of about 285 acres. Some time prior 
to this, for some reason unaccounted for, a slight 
change was made in the spelling of the name. The 
first "e" was omitted, making it "Hadley," and 
thus the name is written by the entire connection. 
During the life time of David L- Hadley he laid out 
a cemetery on his property on a hill over-looking the 
beautiful Shenango Valley, which he owned until 
his death, and in which he lies buried. He was a 
staunch Democrat. Early in life he connected him- 
self with the Presbyterian church. After removing 
to Mercer Co. Pa. in 1843, he identified himself with' 
the Old Georgetown Presbyterian church, (now 
Sheakleyville), and was soon made an elder. He 
was the leading spirit in establishing the Hadley 
Presbyterian church in 1874. It is a beautiful edi- 
fice, standing on the hill above the town; a mighty 
sentinal to protect the town and country folks against 


the blandishments of the evil one, and is a fitting 
monument to his energy and sturdy christian charac- 
ter. He was an elder of this church from the time 
of its organization until his death.

twp Mahoning Co. O. Nov 17, 1866, m Myrtle Bow- 
sher Dec 18, 1895. Res. 575 Second Ave. Lorain. 
Ohio. His boyhood days were spent on a farm. 
After attending the district schools he took a course 
in the Poland Union Seminary, which, in its day 
was one of Ohio's most famous preparatory institu- 
tions. Mr. Hadley 's course was an intermitted one, 
and in the intervals between the periods of study he 
engaged in teaching. He later entered North Nor- 
mal College at Canfield, O. In the fall of 18S7 he 
matriculated in Wittenberg College, Springfield, O, 
and graduated at that institution with the degree of 
B. A. in 1 891. In the fall of the same year he en- 
tered Wittenberg Theological Seminary, and on the 
completion of a three-year course the degree of 
Bachelor of Divinity was conferred upon him. The 
same year his Alma Mater bestowed upon him the 


degree of Master of Arts. Immediately afterward, 
in the fall of 1894, he was ordained as a minister of 
the gospel by the Wittenberg Synod of the English 
Lutheran church at Bellefontaine, Ohio, having been 
licensed to preach the gospel by the same religious 
authority the previous year. In May 1894 Rev. 
Mr. Hadley took charge of his first congregation at 
West Liberty, Ohio, a town of about 1500 population. 
There he remained in successful and harmonious re- 
lations with his flock until called to a broader field 
Mar 15, 1898, in Galion, Ohio, where he served the 
Christ English Lutheran church for five years. 

Rev. Mr. Hadley's work in Galion well illustra- 
tes the force of character of the man. Young and 
energetic he went to work with a will, wiped out an 
indebtedness and established the church organiza- 
tion on a basis which has added to its power and in- 
fluence, and greatly increased the congregation in 
number. During his pastorate in Galion the church 
was remodeled and reopened free of debt. When 
the new congregation was organized at Lorain, Ohio, 
the Board of Home Missions selected Rev. Mr. Had- 
ley to take up that work, and he became its first pas- 
tor October I, 1903. During the first eight months 
the membership grew to nearly one hundred, and 
was fast becoming one of the strongest and most in- 
fluential churches of Lorain, Ohio. 

When in Logan county Ohio, he was president 
of the county Christian Endeavor Union, and during 
his incumbency in the office of the county had the 
distinction of winning the banner offered by the 
State Association for the best organization and for 
the progress and work of the year. While in Galion 
he served for a term at the head of the Crawford 
County Christian Endeavor Union. He served 


several terms as president of the Ministers' Union in 
Galion and three successive j^ears as secretary of 
Wittenberg Synod. While in Galion he edited ao 
eight-page parish paper entitled the "Lutheran Visi- 
tor." Mrs. Hadley, who had taken a select course 
at Wittenberg College, and was previously a teacher 
in the public schools of Millersburg, Ohio, is a lady 
of superior intelligence and culture, and is of great 
assistance to her husband in the exercise of the high 
functions of his holy calling. C: (Y) Florence E.

lY- Rev. Henry Clement Hadl e^', b in Mahoning 
Co. Ohio, Mar 7, 1868, m Loretta May Smith Sept 
19, 1899. Res. 84 Irvington St. Cleveland, Ohio. 
His boyhood days were spent on his father's farm, 
attending a country school in the winter. At an 
early age he believed he was called to preach the gos- 
pel, and he united with the English Evangelical 
Lutheran church at the age of 14. He attended the 
North Eastern Ohio Normal College atCanfield, O., 
a part of the time from 1886- 1888. He then taught 
school three years. He entered Wittenberg College, 
Springfield, Ohio, in 1891, and graduated in 1895, 
having entirely paid his own way through College. 
During his summer vacations he canvassed for books. 
In Sept 1895 he entered Wittenberg Theological 
Seminary at Springfield, Ohio, and graduated in June 
1898. At this time he received the degree of Master 
of Arts from his Alma Mater. He was ordained a 
minister of the gospel at Lima, Ohio, Oct 3, 1898, 
and later became pastor of St. John's Lutheran ch. 
of Ohio City, Ohio, June i, 1898. This church had 
a membership of 64 and a very burdensome debt. 
During a pastorate of 4 years 105 members were 


received, the debt paid off , and many improvements 
made; over $4,000. being contributed during the pas- 
torate. He accepted a unanimous and urgent call to 
the Christian Endeavor Memorial Lutheran Church 
of Cleveland, Ohio, July i, 1902. This church also 
had a very heavy debt and only a membership of 85 . 
During the two years which have just passed the 
debt has been entirely liquidated, the membership 
more than doubled, the salary increased, and many 
improvements made.
