No record has been found to prove or disprove this, but from a letter written by Simon Hadley's daughter, Hannah (Hadley) Stanfield, from North Carolina to her step-mother, it will be seen that her father died in 1756 and that his death was sudden."1

Bio Note*DANIEL HALLADAY.- Among the honored pioneers of Southern California who have contributed largely to the growth and advancement of this section of the state through their excellent business judgment and public-spirited service, the name of Daniel Halladay ranks high. Coming to Santa Ana in 1880, Mr. Halladay at once actively identified himself with the development of the locality, interesting himself to some extent in agriculture, but it was in the world of finance that his greatest accomplishments were achieved.

The lineage of the Halladay family dates back for several generations in the history of New England, and its representatives were always in the forefront of the progressive life of their communities. A native of Vermont, Daniel Halladay was born in Marlboro, November 24, 1826. His parents were David and Nancy (Carpenter) Halladay, both natives of the same state. Daniel Halladay's early days were spent at his birthplace, but when he was twelve years of age his parents removed to Springfield, Mass., later settling at Ware, in that state, and in these places Daniel received his education in the public schools. Always of a mechanical bent, at the age of nineteen years he apprenticed himself to learn the machinist's trade, continuing as an apprentice and journeyman for six years. During the latter half of this period he was foreman in the American Machine Works at Springfield, Mass., and the machine works of Seth Adams & Company, in South Boston, Mass. After closing his work with the last-named firm he returned to his former position with the American Machine Works at Springfield, and while there he had charge of the construction of the caloric engine invented by John Ericsson, well known to history as the designer of the famous Monitor. During the World's Fair in London in 1851, it was a part of the American exhibit in the Crystal Palace, Mr. Halladay superintending its erection and exhibition there.

Returning to the United States, Mr. Halladay became a partner in a machine manufacturing concern at Ellington, Conn., but the connection lasted but a short time, Mr. Halladay then going to South Coventry, Conn., where he engaged in the manufacture of machinery under the firm naime of the Halladay Wind Mill Company, the greater part of the machines turned out being of his own invention. The company's plant was removed to Batavia, I11., in 1863, and here the business of the plant grew to a large volume, so that when Mr. Halladay decided to retire from it in order to come to California, he was able to dispose of it at a handsome figure.

Locating at Santa Ana in 1880, Mr. Halladay entered at once into the upbuilding of the county, his clear vision making plain to him its great possibilities. Two years later, in 1882, when the Commercial Bank of Santa Ana was established, he was made its president, and this was the beginning of many years of service in the banking field, in which his wisdom, integrity and wide grasp had a large part in putting it on its present sound, progressive, yet conservative basis. After serving a* the bank's president for a number of years he was made vice-president, always keeping a guiding hand on the affairs of the institution. He was also one of the incorporators of the Bank of Orange, serving on its directorate until it changed hands; at one time he was a director of the Orange County Savings Bank. All of these institutions benefited greatly by Mr. Halladay's wise counsel, as was evidenced by their constant growth, both in number of depositors and amounts of deposits, and his sound judgment has left its impress on their policies to the present day. Interested in every project that made for the material progress of the community, Mr. Halladay entered enthusiastically into the plans for furnishing Santa Ana with illuminating gas, being one of the incorporators and directors of the Santa Ana Gas Company. He was also instrumental in the promotion of the Santa Ana, Orange & Tustin Street Railway, and was one of its directors throughout the existence of the company. Mr. Halladay's marriage, which occurred in Ludlow, Mass., May 3, 1849, united him with Miss Susan M. Spooner, born at Belchertown, Mass., and, like her husband, a descendaint of an old New England family. She passed away on December 26, 1908, at Santa Ana. One child was born to them, a son who died in infancy. Mrs. Halladay was a charter member of the Presbyterian Church at Santa Ana and very active in its circles. Mr. Halladay spent the last few years of his life in retirement from active duties, although he always maintained a wide interest in the affairs of the community and nation, being particularly concerned in the cause of temperance, of which he was ever a stanch advocate. His death occurred on March 1, 1916, at his home on East First Street, being survived by his adopted daughter, Mrs. Susie M. Rutherford.1
