Biography* Dear Warren,
      My name is Susan Elizabeth (nee Haynes) Rhoad Gassiott.
I was named after my great-grandmother, Elizabeth Catherine Culpepper.
Attached is her 50th wedding anniversary newspaper announcement from 1931. I also am attaching a copy of my Haynes family tree and
comments by my father's 1st cousin, Lavelle Haynes. There is also
information that A H Haynes, Sr, once owned a shoe shop near
Haynesville, LA, that made shoes for the Confederate Army. He claimed that he made the first pair of leather shoes that Eliza My grandfather was Alexander Hamilton Haynes,Jr("Leckie). My father is James Orville Haynes, Sr. My father and his brothers were raised by she and her husband, Alexander Hamilton Haynes,Sr.("Alec") during the Depression Era in Jena, LA. Their mother Stella (nee) Russell Haynes went away to nursing school after Leckie died of pneumonia and continued working to support her sons. I missed knowing Grannie Haynes.
They said she was a prankster. Once when my dad and uncle M.J. were about 6 and 9 years old, they were out in the fig trees in the yard shooting birds. Around dusk, "Eliza" as she was called, covered herself with a sheet and chased the two boys. My dad said it really scared them badly.
