Staines, Robert, was a native of England, born in 1810 and came to this country in 1833, stopping a few months
in Wayne county, thence coming to Barre, where he bought the fifty acre farm on which he afterward lived and died.
He married Sarah Alchinn, by whom he had nine children: Nelson, Anna, Thomas, Charles, Sarah, Mary, Henry, George
and John. For his second wife he married Mrs. Emily Stafford, who still survives him. Thomas Staines was born in
Barre, April 30, 1839, was brought up and always lived on a farm, though since 1886 he has owned and operated a
lime kiln in the northeast part of Barre. He began his business life with no means except a determination to succeed,
and his efforts in this direction have been successful. Mr. Staines enjoys the confidence and respect of the community.
He is an active member of the Free Methodist Church at Albion. In 1861 Thomas Staines married Janette Stafford,
and they have three adopted children, Charles and Jennie Staines, nephew and niece of Thomas Staines, and Jay Staines,
nephew of his wife. Let others that have no children go and do likewise.
