    Notes 
    • The story goes that Ebenezer Halladay was heart broken when his first wife died
      at the age of 30. He refused to marry another, but with all the children to
      take care of he didn't know what he would do. Then one night the ghost of Jane
      appeared to him, her face half in shadow, and told him he must marry again.
      She then turned her head to reveal the other half of her face, but instead of
      Jane's face Ebenezer saw the face of a woman he had never seen before. She
      said that it was this woman who Ebenezer should marry. Later in the year,
      Ebenezer was traveling, selling grain else where in Ontario and he stopped for
      the night at an Inn. When Parthenia Olds, the daughter of the innkeeper, came
      to serve him he recognized the face that Jane had shown him. He asked her to
      marry him. She said yes. - recv'd from Katherine Bredbeck, 8/20/95
