Altemira Haley was living as a farm servant for John Harrison in 1870. She had her son Monroe Haley age 5 with her. The 1860 cen shows her living with a son James, age 3 and daughter Martha 10/12. According to census records her birth is given as 1834. What I need is her husband's name, and her maiden name. Monroe was the father of George Haley of Haley Nursery. The 1860 and 1870 census has several Haley families in Warren County at the time The data on Altemira Haley comes from DeKalb County. I can use some help on this one.
