Note: In 1953 my great grandfather, Edgar Haines, requested a copy of his fathers will, who was Charles Haines. This copy remained in the family bible until it was eventually passed to me. On the front of the document it says the will is located in volume 9 folio 105 and it was entered June 13, 1931.
