Biographical/Historical Description

M.H. Hare (Michael Hilaire, or Hillary, Hare) apparently came from Ireland in the 1830's. He was in Buffalo, New York, and came, prior to the 1850's to Ohio. He was a teacher, lecturer, and examiner in phrenology. He had a wife and two children. One of the children, a daughter, was named Idyl Hare. She married George Bradford Farley in 1890 in Michigan. Farley was a Civil War veteran, and worked for the Michigan Central Railway, and lectured in Theosophy.
