    Notes 
    Married:
    • Martha Charity Haynes birth date and father has always been in question. No birth record, nor a death certificate has been located. If her birthdate was February 1852 (as shown in the 1900 census), or even February 1853 is correct, then her father is assumed to be Hezekiah Haynes, who died 2 Oct 1852. If she was born after June 1853, then her father is unknown. We do know that her mother Margaret Edwards Haynes gave birth to a boy (Alex) in 1857, well after Hezekiah had died and Margaret was a widow. Martha's tombstone gives a birth date of 3 Feb 1854. If that was her birth date - then Hezekiah Haynes was not her father.
