Hi Chris,

Here is a link to a quick search on FamilySearch. https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3A%22John%20H.%22~%20%2Bsurname%3AHaigh~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1850-1940~

If you can give us some approximate dates and locations we might be able to do a little more to help you.  Meanwhile, take a look at the link and perhaps explore a little on FamilySearch if you have not looked there before.
