History of Randolph County, Indiana with Illustrations & Biographical Sketches, E. Tucker, 1882, page 399.
Matilda Haynes, wife of Jesse G. Haynes, and daughter of Bela and Elizabeth Cropper, was born in Warren Co., Ohio, February 17, 1829 (sic). She is the tenth of a family of fourteen children, of whom five are now living, all but one residing in this county. Her father was born in Woodford Co., Ky., January 8, 1791, and departed this life March 27, 1873, aged eighty-two years two months and nine days. Her mother was born in Shelby Co., Ky., October 22, 1794, and deceased October 31, 1875. Her parents removed from Kentucky to Ohio in the year 1828, and remained there until September, 1833, when they came to this State. The subject of this sketch was five years old when she came with her parents to this county. They settled on a farm where Matilda continued to live until her marriage. Mrs. Haynes' youthful experiences were similar to that of most farmers' daughter in pioneer times, having comparatively no opportunities for obtaining an education, the schools being in a very primitive state. She is an honored and zealous member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. and Mrs. Haynes are industrious and frugal, honest and generous. They have raised and educated a family of honorable children, and have secured a competency of property, and are honored citizens of the county.
