TOMBSTONE TUESDAY
ELIZABETH (BETSY HAYNES)
1825-1905



Betsy Haynes was my maternal great great grandmother. She married Cain Wall July 20, 1845 in Terrell Co., Georgia. They had twelve children. Their daughter Sarah Laurel Wall married Hiram Hardy Hay and had my grandfather John Melton Hay. Betsy raised Sarah's five children as Sarah and Hard both died while the children were young. My grandfather told us about coming back to Georgia from Alabama in a covered wagon with his Uncle Charlie after his mother's death.

I have so far been unable to find Betsy's parents. Betsy was born March 1825 in North Carolina and died October 10, 1905 in Worth Co., Georgia. Her tombstone is in Oakfield Baptist Church Cemetery, Oakfield, Worth Co., Georgia.

Love the stone. I love walking through cemeterys and looking at the stones.
