Elizabeth A. Haynie
(Widow of George L. Haynie)
Pension Papers

This page includes military service record information and bounty land warrant information for George Haynie, as well as the pension papers of his widow, Elizabeth A. Haynie  nee Roddan.

I am a terrible transcriber.  The first problem is that I'm not sure of  the proper order of the pages.  The second problem is that I'm not very good at reading old hand writing.  I believe I've accurately transcribed the actual information.  I have noted with parentheses and question marks the parts of which I was not sure.
