Mattie Haynes


Oldest child of George Washington Haynes and Elizabeth Jane Payne/Haynes Haynes Lewis. 

The Greenbrier Historical Society and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History both have about 30 volumes of my work entitled "BLACK RESIDENTS OF GREENBRIER, MONROE, SUMMERS, AND POCAHONTAS COUNTIES"  by Carol L. Haynes.  Amistad Research has very old drafts from the late 90's and the West Virginia college at Institute has an old copy.  This is not a formally published work - only self published information that I update frequently and send to the above two museums/societies.  The recent edition includes around 240 photos.  So, if you are in Lewisburg please stop in to the GHS and ask them to see my work.  Or, if you are in Charleston, do the same.  The work attempts to list every Black individual who ever lived in GC, MC, SC, or PC.  It is an index of all of the places where these persons can be found (censuses, court records, other family histories, newspaper articles) and it also contains interviews of family members.  Hope you find the information helpful!!!

Hi there, I'm trying to find information about African Americans in the Civil War in Pocahontas and Greenbrier Counties. Can you help? I'm painting a Civil War mural in Marlinton, and I'd like to depict a diverse perspective.
Thanks
Molly
