J. B. Haynie
John Boyd Haynie
 


**Note:  The following are pension papers for J. B. Haynie and wife, Ellen.  We have seen no other indication that J. B. Haynie had another wife after Louise Patterson.  His daughter Ida never mentioned another wife for her father - he was unmarried in 1900 and he died before the census was taken in 1910.  In all other Widows Pension Applications I have seen, the widow had to prove she was married to the veteran.  It seems that Ellen was never questioned about her marriage, only about J. B. Haynie's service.  The hand written portion is highlighted in bold italic except the last document which is all hand written.  In some cases where there are no dates I have left out the transmittal forms.

Respectfully returned to
Mr. ? ? Streets?
Examiner of Public Accounts
State of Alabama

    There is no record in this office of an organization known as Company G, Walthall Battalion, C. S. A., and the name J. B. Haynie has not been identified with any Confederate Organization.

    The records show, however, that one Jesse b. Hayney (name also borne as Jesse b. Hainey and as J. B. Haney), who may or may not be the (? one according?).  When the inquiry is made, Sergeant and Private, Company B., 17th Alabama Infantry, C. S. A., aged 35 years, enlisted April 9, 1862, at (Loachapoka?), Alabama.  The muster roll of the company covering the period from October 31, 1864, to February 28, 1865 (last roll on file), shows him present.  The name J. B. Haney, as a Private of the organization named, appears on a roster dated April 10, 1865, of prisoners of war belonging to the Army of Northern Virginia, who were surrendered on that date (place of surrender not shown), and paroled at Appomattox C. H., Virginia, April 9, 1865.
