Cemetery transcription by members of the Jacksonville Area Genealogical and Historical Society

On Aug. 13, 1896, Green Haynes Sr. and his wife Ann sold to the County of Morgan for one dollar the 99' x 66' plot of ground that had already long been known as Haynes Cemetery. The deed specifies "to be used and enjoyed by the inhabitants of the neighborhood where said premises are situated as a Burying Ground or place of interment of the dead. . ." Haynes Cemetery is one of the more remote and difficult cemeteries to be found in Morgan County. It is located about four miles southeast of Rees Station and about the same distance northeast of Nortonville. The cemetery is in a wooded area high on the southeast bank of Bucks Branch and is adjacent to a cultivated field. Legal description of the site, which cannot be seen from the nearest road, is in the northwest quarter of the northeast quarter of Section 15 Township 13 Range 9 W. About 1945 Leonard Dalton and Henry McCann carried fieldstones in to mark some of the graves that lacked tombstones. A fence was erected about 1949 and in 1973 was still in good shape. Several years ago a Hamilton family, descendant of the Haynes family, is known to have cleaned the cemetery. In 1969 Robert W. Dalton and his mother-in-law, Emma Mary Swain Grady, spent three months cleaning and renovating Haynes Cemetery. The Haynes family members buried here are direct descendants of John Haynes (May 1, 1594 - March 1, 1653/4) governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony and several times governor of Connecticut.
