Thomas married Euphemia HAIG OR HAGUE about 1800 in ,, Scotland. Euphemia was born about 1780 in ,, Scotland.

They had the following children:

+ 2 M i. Thomas Euclid HALLIDAY was born on 10 Nov 1802. He died about 1819.

+ 3 F ii. Isabella HALLIDAY was born in 1807. She died about 1862.

Second Generation

2. Thomas Euclid HALLIDAY (Thomas Euclid) was born on 10 Nov 1802 in Westmill, Midlothian, Scotland. He was christened on 12 Dec 1802 in Lasswade, Midlothian, Scotland. He died about 1819 of Lot 57, Queens, Prince Edward Island.

Thomas married Mary COCHRANE . Mary was born in 1799 in ,, Scotland. She died in 1859 of Eldon Belfast, Lot 57, Queens, Prince Edward Island.

Some sources identify the widow of Thomas Euclid Halliday Jr. as Mary DOUGLAS, a relative or perhaps a daughter of Thomas Douglas, Fifth Earl of Selkirk. No definite proof of Mary's origin has been found; the mystery is only heightened by the "veiled references" in an 1815 letter from Thomas Euclid Halliday Sr. to Selkirk. See J. M. Bumsted, ed., "Thomas Halliday, Mary Cochrane..." in The Island Magazine No. 19 (Spring/summer 1986; FHL book 971.7 H25i), pp. 27-32.

In any case, the land deed dated 1819 transferring property in Lot 57, Queens County, Prince Edward Island from the Earl of Selkirk to Thomas Halliday for "the use and behoof of Mary Cochrane the wife of Thomas Euclid Halliday feme sole" identifies her only by the Cochrane surname. PEI land registry conveyance books, liber 26, folio 44, on FHL film 1630046.

"A tombstone in the old Belfast churchyard marks the grave of Mary, daughter of the Earl of Selkirk:-- In loving memory of Mary Douglas, only daughter of Lord Selkirk, died October 1859, Aet. 60. Blessed are the dead, Who died in the Lord. Erected by her daughter, E. McLennan [sic]."-- Malcolm Alexander MacQueen, Skye Pioneers and the Island, Winnipeg, abt. 1930 (FHL film 231919), p. 19. J. M. Bumsted's 1986 article in The Island Magazine on Mary Cochrane includes a photo of this tombstone, but notes that the Earl of Selkirk had daughters from his 1807 marriage.

3. Isabella HALLIDAY (Thomas Euclid) was born in 1807 in ,, Scotland. She died about 1862 in Hampden, Penobscot, Maine.

4. James Euclid HALLIDAY (Thomas Euclid) was born in 1810 in ,, Scotland. He died on 11 Feb 1884 in Eldon Belfast, Lot 57, Queens, Prince Edward Island.

Died 11 Feb 1884 "in the 74th year of his age." PEI Master Name Index, from Southside Journal, 21 Feb 1884. Although age at death 73 in 1884 caclculates to a birth year of 1811, available sources indicate James Euclid Halliday was born in Scotland shortly before he and his parents arrived in North America in 1810.

James married Isabella MCDONALD. Isabella was born in 1813 of Tatamagouche, , Nova Scotia. She died on 12 Mar 1885 in Lot 57, Queens, Prince Edward Island.

Birth year of 1811 is calculated from age 47 at death in 1858. An approximate birth year of 1812 was calculated for Matthew Laraby based on school records for the North Esk, Miramichi River area of New Brunswick, in W. D. Hamilton, Miramichi Papers, c. 1987, FHL book 971.521 H2h, p. 190.

He died on 22 Sep 1864 of Eldon Belfast, Lot 57, Queens, Prince Edward Island. He was buried in Belfast, Lot 58, Queens, Prince Edward Island.

Birth year of 1840 is calculated from age 24 at death in 1864. Since his parents were married in North Esk, New Brunswick in 1840, John Thomas Laraby was probably born there.

22 F ii. Elizabeth LARABY was born in 1843 of Eldon Belfast, Lot 57, Queens, Prince Edward Island. She was christened on 2 Jun 1850 in Vernon River, Queens, Prince Edward Island. She died on 1 Feb 1895. She was buried in Belfast, Lot 58, Queens, Prince Edward Island.

Ashfield Township history indicates Angus was not married, but 1920 U.S. census for Seattle lists a wife Thyra S., born in Sweden, age 40 in 1920, and 1930 U.S. census for Seattle lists a second wife Elizabeth L., born in Scotland, age 50 in 1930. First marriage for Elizabeth L., took place at her age 49, undoubtedly to Angus Halliday, probably in Seattle. That same 1930 census lists Angus Halliday as age 65, and that his first marriage had been at his age 25, or about 1890, and indicates he came to the U.S. in 1918. However, Ashfield Township Western Division Deeds, vol. 25, no. 7759 indicates Angus was not yet married in 1897 and was then living in Carlton, Carlton, Minnesota.

35 F viii. Ellen or Nellie HALLIDAY was born on 4 Aug 1859 of Eldon Belfast, Lot 57, Queens, Prince Edward Island. She died on 8 Sep 1959 in , San Mateo, California.

Alexander married Addie L. . Addie was born in 1872 in ,, Iowa.

No children listed for Addie at the 1910 census of Two Harbors. That census lists both her parents as born in New Hampshire, although place of birth for the "mother-in-law" to Alexander Halliday, Laura (?) MOSES, was listed as Wisconsin. Laura Moses was residing with Alexander and Addie in 1910.

Called Mary [Halliday] Gann in Ashfield Township history. Name spelled Gan in 1900 census, when Mary was listed as the mother of four children, all four still living. The 1900 census states that both Mary and her husband Charles GAN immigrated to the U.S. in 1880, even though Mary HALIDAY is listed as living with her widowed mother Ann at the time of the 1881 census of Ashfield Township, Huron County, Ontario. Mary was more likely born about 1856 than in the April 1859 stated in the 1900 census.

Mary married Charles GANN in 1884 of Duluth, St Louis, Minnesota. Charles was born in May 1858 in ,, Canada.

Ashfield Township Western Division Deeds, vol. 25 No. 7759 dtd 10 May 1897 reg 29 Jul 1897 Sarah McDonald et al to Euphemia McKay lists "Christina Owens, formerly Christina Halliday of the City of Duluth in the State of Minnesota" (FHL film 1723335).

_______ OWENS and Christine had the following children:

Although an 1897 Ontario land record lists his name as Edward Fulton, his given name appears to be Edwin, as listed in the 1900 census of Duluth. His place of birth at that census was listed as Canada (Fr), meaning French Canada, or that he was born in Canada of French origin.

S. D. McPhee assisted by the Rev. McEwen of Iona. The exceptionally large concourse of people forming the sad funeral procession showed the high esteem in which the deceased was held in his native land and the deep sympathy felt for the sorrow-stricken parents and relatives. The scene in the home when the sad message came was heart-rending, and one never to be forgotten. He who promises "to wipe all tears form our eyes" is graciously sustaining the broken-hearted parents and family by sweet consolation of his Grace and presence. "Stewart" was a young man of exemplary character and a general favorite. His untimely and cruel death has cast a deep gloom over the whole Province.

Although 1901 census lists date of birth as 7 May 1890, Frank is not listed on 1891 census taken about April 1, so date of birth of 7 May 1891 listed in christening record appears to be correct.

At 1901 Census of Lot 57, date of birth for Thomas McLellan is given as 7 Mar 1865. The year, at least,

seems incorrect, based on his age given in earlier censuses.
