  • Notes  Married:
    • No marriage record is extant for Charles and Nannie. Lee County courthouse marriage records before 1867 were lost during courthouse fires in 1856 and 1872. A review of the microfilmed marriage records for Terrell County did not reveal a marriage for a Haynes/Clay couple any time between 1861-1865.

      Rigsby's "Historic Georgia Families" shows that Charles Haynes and Nancy Clay married Feb 1864 in Decatur County. The date might be correct, but they most likely married in Terrell or Lee County. A "C. E. Haynes" purchased a horse from the estate of Nancy's mother in May 1860 in Terrell County.

      Charles joined the Confederate Army in Terrell County, and died while in service. Therefore, it is not likely that Charles ever lived in Decatur County, and Nancy must have moved there after his death. Charles was in the same regiment in the Civil War as his future brother-in-law, David Henry Clay. In 1863, he was "home sick on furlough" in Terrell County, indicating that was his home.
