I am new to the Haynes family and the Breckinridge and Audrain Cos. lists. Looking for
help with identifying the children of Joel HAYNES. Looking at census and birth places of
his children over a period of years, it appears that Joel HAYNES arrived in Missouri from
Kentucky about 1828-1829. I did not find him in Audrain Co., MO in 1830.
1840 Audrain Co., MO Federal Enumeration Census
Salt River Township, page 10, line 26
1 male - 5 and under 10 (probably Charles)
1 male - 10 and under 15 (probably John)
1 male - 16 and under 20
1 male - 20 and under 30 (Is this the Henry G. Haynes, age 31, found in 1850,
1 male - 40 and under 50 (should be Joel Haynes)
1 female - 5 and under 10 (probably L. H.)
3 females - 10 and under 15 (probably Nancy D., A. T. and Julia)
1 female - 40 and under 50 (should be Martha)
By 1850 the oldest 2 males are gone from the home.
1850 Audrain Co., MO Federal Enumeration Census
Page 154, 4/4
HAYNES, Joel, 52, m, Farmer, b. VA
. . . Martha, 54, f, b. VA (is this Patsy GREER m. 19 Nov 1817 in Breckinridge
. . . W. L., 26, m, b. KY
. . . Nancy D., 22, f, b. KY
. . . John, 21, m, b. MO
. . . A. T., 20, f, b. MO (is this daughter Almarinda T.?)
. . . L. H., 9, f, b. MO
. . . Charles, 16, m, b. MO
DAVIS, Madison, 26, m, b. KY
. . . Julia, 22, f, b. KY
. . . Joel, 1, m, b. MO
. . . Martha, 2 mo., f, b. MO
Is this Madison Davis the same person as M. A. Davis found on page 690, HH 566/564 in
1860? This HH is 2 houses away from Joel Haynes. If so, why are his children living with
their grandfather Joel instead of with him?
1860 Audrain Co., MO Federal Enumeration Census
Salt River Township, Page 690, 568/566
HAYNES, Joel, 63, m, Farmer/Widower, b. VA
. . . A. T., 31, f, House Keeper, b. MO (is this daughter Almarinda T.?)
. . . C. H., 27, m, Farm Hand, b. MO (probably Charles)
DAVIS, Joel, 11, m., b. MO (s/o Madison and Julia)
. . . M. E., 10, f, b. MO (this would be Martha, d/o Madison and Julia)
I discovered a marriage record on the Sullivan Co., MOGenWeb site which states that
William C. AYERS m. Rinda Haynes on 18 Sep 1864. William C. AYERS was b. 2 Dec 1813 in
OH. This Rinda in definitely my hubby's line. A check of William C. AYERS's
Civil War Pension Application Card shows his widow as Almarinda T. AYERS. The 1870
Sullivan Co., MO census shows Almarind T. AYERS b. abt. 1830 in MO. Both parents b. in
I am trying to find proof, one way or the other, if the A. T. HAYNES listed in the 1850
and 1860 Audrain Co., MO census in the home of Joel HAYNES is my Almarinda T. HAYNES
AYERS. All of the data found thus far matches, but it is still not proof...yet.
While I am on the subject, are the William HAYNES, age 75, and wife Mary, age 69, both b.
VA on page 172B in the 1850 Audrain Co., MO census the parents of Joel HAYNES?
The only Joel HAYNES which I can find prior to 1828 is in Breckingridge Co., KY. Marriage
record states Joel HAYNES m. Patsy GREER on 19 Nov 1817.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
