William "Hubert" Henry Haynes
As usual, I have received a few inquiries and, therefore, have become interested in this research again. I can't believe that I have been away so long. At any rate, this photo is of my grandfather, William Hubert Haynes. He was the son (one of the younger of 14 children) of George Washington Haynes and Elizabeth Jane Payne/Haynes Haynes Lewis. He was born in 1897 in Ronceberte/Brushy Ridge, WV. In the 1920's he was a chauffeur for Attorney Dabney Davis of Charleston, WV. In 1930 he was a chauffeur in Connecticut (for the Steinbach family). His draft registration card for WWII has him as Hubert William Henry Stanly Haynes, born 2/19/1897. On his registration card he is described as medium height, slender, black eyes, black hair. He died on 8/18/1939 and he is buried at the Neff Orchard Road Cemetery. For details of his death see WHEELING INTELLIGENCER, 8/19/1939; 8/21/1939.
