The below 36 photos are from the Dunsmore home in Brushy Ridge
Greenbrier County, WV and they were kindly shared with me by Elaine. Elaine and I are both descended from Martha Payne Haynes. Martha was "married" to Burton Payne in ? Fayette during her enslavement. He was sold to Virginia where it appears that he married another Martha. His first Martha - my great-great-grandmother - married Solomon Haynes on July 4, 1865. They lived around Second Creek, Monroe County. Martha had a child - not sure who the father was -child was born during her enslavement - named Socrates & Elaine is descended from him. Another child was Elizabeth - who was also born during her enslavement. I am descended from Elizabeth (who is my great-grandmother). Elizabeth married George Washington Haynes and they moved to Brushy Ridge, Greenbrier County.
