    • From the History of Calhoun County, Michigan Biography of Henry Halladay, page 645-6

      A resident of Battle Creek and vicinity during a period covering something more that seventy years, and for thirty years of this time living in the same locality, Cass and Kalamazoo streets, Henry Halladay is well known to the people of this city as a man, who as an extensive contractor and builder, assisted in forwarding the growth and development of the city.  At the present time Mr. Halladay is living practically retired, although his active, energetic nature will not allow of complete resignation from business affairs and his alert mind is kept occupied in looking after his farm in Bedford township and his various real estate holdings in Battle Creek.  Mr. Halladay was born four miles north of Grass Lake, in Jackson County, Michigan, October 23, 1840, and is a son of Austin D. and Johanna (Scidmore) Halladay. Calvin Halladay, grandfather of Henry, came from the East, being a native of the Empire State, and located in Battle Creek, Michigan, in 1838.  Subsequently, however, he acquired property in Bedford township, Calhoun county, and this locality is now known as the Halladay neighborhood, and the cemetery, in which grandfather Halladay and his wife were both buried, is known as Halladay Cemetery.  The grandfather became a prominent and successful citizen and gave to each of his children eighty acres of well-improved and valuable land. Austin D. Halladay was born near Seneca Lake, New York, February 21, 1812, and died in Battle Creek, Michigan, June 10, 1899.  His wife was also born in the same neighborhood in New York, October 19, 1811, and passed away in Battle Creek, December 11, 1893.  They came from Geneva, New York, in 1836, to Jackson county, Michigan, and in 1842 to his farm in Bedford township, Calhoun county, and settled on the farm, where they carried on farming, reared their children, and rounded out long and useful lives.  The eighty-acre farm which was the original homestead of Austin D.  Halladay is now in the possession of his son Henry.  He and his worthy wife are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Battle Creek. They were the parents of six children, four sons and two daughters, as follows: Reuben S., who died April 26, 1907, in Battle Creek; Catherine E. and Henry, residing in this city; Austin C., who died November 17, 1890; Abram, who married Mrs. Ella Andrus Helton of Battle Creek, and has two children, Mabel now the wife of Maurice Willison, and Clarence M. of Battle Creek; and Mary Etta, who married Samuel D. Ball has one son, James of Battle Creek.  Reuben S. was a veteran of the Civil war during which he participated in the famous March to the Sea. Henry Halladay received his education in the district schools of Halladay neighborhood, in Bedford township, which he attended during the winter months, his summers being spent in the work of the farm.  As a young man, however, he decided to follow a business career in preference to the vocation of an agriculturist, and this determination he has followed out, having been a contractor and builder during nearly all of his life.  In 1872 he formed a partnership with M.M. Lewis, under the firm name of Halladay & Lewis, and this association continued twenty-two years, but in the spring of 1894 disposed of his interests to Mr. Lewis and since that time had carried on operations alone up to the year 1905, when he disposed of his holdings to Gillis & Snyder. Since that time he has devoted the greater part of his attention to looking after his farm in Bedford township, located two miles from the city line, and also owns seven houses in Battle Creek, in addition to his own residence, at No. 147 Kalamazoo street, which he erected some twenty years ago.  He has lived on the corner of Kalamazoo and Cass streets for over thirty years, and is widely and favorably known throughout the city.  He is a stockholder in the M. Rumely Company.  In politics a Republican in national affairs, he uses his own judgment in local affairs, selecting his favorite candidate rather on account of his abilities than on account of part allegiance.  During the administration of J.L. Whitcomb as mayor of Battle Creek, Mr. Halladay acted as alderman of the Third Ward for two years.  His religious affiliation is with the Methodist Episcopal church. On May 20, 1861, Mr. Halladay was united in marriage with Mis Sarah A. West, of Bedford township, and she died at Battle Creek, November 21, 1880, having been the mother of three children, namely: William H., who is deceased; Emma C., who married E.A. Kipp, has two children, John H. and Evalyn May, and resides on a part of the old farm in Bedford township; and Mrs. Clara May McCarthy, of this city.  Mrs. McCarthy has three children: Carl, Agnes and Marion.  All were born and educated in Battle Creek.  On November 26, 1885, Mr. Halladay was married (second) to Miss Eva A. Belding, of Battle Creek, and they have one son; Walter Earl, now bookkeeper for M. Maas & Son of this city.  He was born and educated in Battle Creek, attending the Michigan Normal and Business College, and is married and resides in this city. Members of this old and honored family have distinguished themselves in various lines of endeavor, but none have left for their descendants a finer record than has Mr. Halladay, - a record without stain or blemish, and one which reflects credit upon his work and himself.
