Francis M. Haynes, a successful farmer of Fairmount Township, is the son of Solomon and Clara (Andrews) Haynes, was born in Franklin County, Indiana, August 22, 1842. His parents moved to Delaware County, Indiana when he was about 8 years old, where he was educated in the old subscription schools. The first school he attended was located in the house of Jacob Jones, who was the teacher. Mr. Haynes attended school two months each winter until he was nineteen years of age.

In January (4) of 1864 he enlisted in Delaware Co. in the (as a Pvt.) Second Indiana Battery and participated in the battles of:
Prairie D' Ann, Arkansas, April 11 and 12, 1864
Moscow, Arkansas, April 14, 1864

(Duty at Fort Smith until September 1864)

On account of exposure he was taken sick at Nashville, Tennessee, and was confined to hospital. The experiences undergone while in the line of battle are beyond description and the exposure very severe. After two years of active service he was discharged from service at Indianapolis, October 22, 1865, and returned to Grant County, Indiana, where he became a leading agriculturist of Fairmount Township, residing in the northeast corner of the town adjoining the Mississinewa River.
