William Henry Haynes


My dad was William "Bill" Henry Haynes and he was born in New Haven in 1926 after his parents, William "Hubert" Haynes and Dora "Jane" Kelly Knight Lee Haynes (photos below) moved there from Lewisburg (and Brushy Ridge, Greenbrier County, West Virginia) to New Haven, Connecticut. He is the grandson of George Washington Haynes (photo below), who was from Sinks Grove, MC, and Brushy Ridge, GC and Elizabeth Jane Payne Haynes Haynes Lewis (who was from Fayette and then Brushy Ridge & finally Gallipolis, Ohio when she married her second husband, Sheridan Lewis).
http://sillyputtyhistory.blogspot.com/ is about my dad and his involvement with Silly Putty Marketing (New Haven, Connecticut).

Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
