Biography of William O. Haines
Buchanan County, IA Biographies





William O. Haines was born upon the farm on section 14, Homer township, which he is now operating, his natal day being June 29, 1888. His parents were William A. and Anna (Buell) Haines, of whom mention is made elsewhere in this volume in connection with the sketch of H. C. Haines. His boyhood days were passed in the usual manner of farm lads. He attended the district schools and worked in the fields through the summer months, early becoming acquainted with the best and most practical methods of planting the crops and caring for the harvests. He remained with his parents until he reached the age of twenty three years and then started out in life independently by renting land near Independence for a year. He then removed to his father's farm on section 14, Homer township, and has since continued its cultivation and further development. The fields are now well tilled and good crops are gathered annually. The place is divided by well kept fences and the latest improved farm machinery is used to facilitate the work.

On the 10th of February, 1912, Mr. Haines was united in marriage to Miss Ethel Jayne, a daughter of Frank and Rosetta (Squires) Jayne, who were natives of Illinois. The parents came to Buchanan county at an early period in its development and the father secured a tract of land, upon which he engaged in farming for many years, operating the place until 1911, when he put aside active farm work, and is now employed at the Insane Hospital at Independence. His wife passed away on the 25th of March, 1901.

In his political views Mr. Haines is a democrat and keeps well informed concerning the vital questions before the country, yet does not seek nor desire office. His religious belief is that of the Presbyterian church and to its teachings he is most loyal. He has been a lifelong resident of this county and that his record is an honorable and upright one is indicated in the fact that many of his stanchest friends are numbered among those who have known him from his boyhood to the present.
