Wellington Robert Haire

Wellington Robert HAIRE is my first cousin four times removed; we are related through his grandparents William and Alice (BROWN) HAIRE.  Wellington was born 31 July 1863,[1] in Huntingdon, Québec, to Thomas and Margaret Agnes (ALEXANDER) HAIRE; he was the older of two children.  He was baptized 26 December 1863 in Huntingdon, Québec; minister was Alfred ANDREWS, witnesses were Anthony WHYTE and Margaret A. HAIRE.  In the 1870 U.S. census it shows him and his family living in Colfax, Missouri,[2] in 1881 they are back in Canada, living in Huntingdon, Québec.[3]  I am finding no records of him after the age of 18, so either he died, or changed the name he used, or moved back to Ireland where his parents emigrated from.
