She prayed for you last night

You've left the old home yonder

Born: Circa 1870, Campbellford (or Belleville), Ontario, Canada. Died: August 29, 1929, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. By age 11, Hawley was the organist at his local Methodist church in Campbellford, and was leading the choir by age 16. He studied medicine briefly in Toronto, then went to the Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He evidently injured his hand, cutting short a promising musical career, and he worked as a piano tuner instead. However, for several years he served as organist at the First Baptist Church in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. It was there he joined the Salvation Army (SA); he later worked with the SA in Winnipeg and Calgary, and wrote a number of SA songs. --www.hymntime.com/tch  Go to person page >
