Not too long after talking with Patsy, her son Scott sent me a copy of Ed’s genealogy, most of which came directly from Ed and Ella. “James Edward Haley was born in August and was the son of Milt and Imogene (Mullins) Haley,” the notes began. “He died February 4, 1951 in Ashland, KY. He married Martha Ella Trumbo, a daughter of William A. and Laura Belle (Whitt) Payne Trumbo. She was born July 14, 1888 and died November 26, 1954 in Cleveland, OH. At the time of their marriage, Ella had one child from a previous relationship: Ralph A. Payne who married Margaret Ryan and who died on May 22, 1947.”
Patsy listed Milt Haley’s parents as Benjamin Haley and Nellie Muncy, and Emma Jean (Imogene) Haley’s parents as Andrew Jackson Mullins and Chloe Ann Gore.
There was detailed information on Ed and Ella’s children.
“Sherman Luther Haley, the oldest, died as an infant. Clyde Frederick Haley was born on June 13, 1921 and never married. Noah Earl Haley was born on October 26, 1922 and married Janet J. Fried in September of 1951. Allie Jackson Haley was born on April 6, 1924. He married Patsy J. Cox on October 25, 1946 and died on March 23, 1982. Lawrence Alfred Haley was born on January 8, 1928. He married Patricia M. Hulse in February of 1949. Monnie May Haley was born on May 5, 1930 and married in 1945 to Wilson Mullins.”

Brandon, you seem to be better informed than anyone I know. No one seems to know nor have heard of my father< Wilson Mullins, mentioned in this article. Got any ideas? Thanks, Ralph

Hi Ralph. I would be glad to help you out on Wilson’s family history. Here is a link to a site that shows his 1944 marriage record: http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view2.aspx?FilmNumber=571287&ImageNumber=477 Notice in the record that Monnie claims to be 18, not 14. Here is a link to the marriage record for Wilson’s parents, William and Mary (Mullins) Mullins: http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view2.aspx?FilmNumber=571283&ImageNumber=68 Wilson’s parents married on July 7, 1893. The record also lists the parents for William and Mary. As you can see, this is a very strong Mullins line. I can provide more information, but this is a start.
