T. J. Haynie came to Grimes county from Alabama in the early forties. He was a young and vigorous man and settled about where the Dolph community is now located. He engaged in farming and by close diligence and energy soon demonstrated that he was one of the best and most successful farmers in this country. This occupation he pursued until the death of his wife, some twenty-five years ago, when he retired.
Mr. Haynie married Miss Azzle [sic] of Montgomery county about 1853, and of the fruit of that union there now live Emmett, William, Jeff Haynie, Mrs. George E. White and Mrs. J. O. Stoneham.
Mr. Haynie was 80 years old at the time of his death. He was a member of the State militia during the civil war, for many years a member of the Methodist church, and a member of the masonic fraternity. He was at all times a close student of all his business affairs, honorable and upright.
