         The late Daniel Curtiss Haynes, St. Cathariens, Ont., was born January 23rd, 1824, in Leicester, Mass., U.S.A. He is the son of Daniel Phelps Haynes and Sabrina Burnapp, both of American birth. Mr. Haynes came to Canada with his parents in 1836, and settled in St. Catharines, where he received his education at the public schools. HIs early life was devoted to his father's business, conducting a stage line from Niagara to Hamilton. This he continued for many years, after which he went into the grocery business on his own account. He afterwards opened a private bank, which he conducted up to the time of his death, April 10th, 1875, when in his fifty-first year. Mr. Haynes was a member of the C. O. F; in religion a member of the Church of England. He was married September 15th, 1848, to Maria DeVeaux, daughter of Henry A. Woodruff, of Niagara Falls, N.Y. He remembered in his numerous bequests the several charitable institutions in St. Catharines, and was a most exemplary man, and has left the fragrant memory of a strictly honorable and benevolent life. While in business he made many friends, and his word was counted equal to his bond.
