Earline this is cool. I would love to see more of what you have. These are not my direct line, but I also research the peripheral lines. Thank you for sharing.

If my Haines's married into your Doan's then they are still yours too ;)

I ddid a lot of research on your Haines family before I found out I was researching the wrong family. I found out that some of your family came to Ontario after the Revolutionary war and married into my Doan family. My Haines family were not Quakers, they immigrated from Germany to Johnstown, in the Mohawk River valley and leased land from Sir William Johnson. My 4th greatgrandfather, Joseph Haines, Sr. was in the Niagara region at the same time as your family member, Joseph E. Haines, Quaker, born in New Jersey, I also did research on the Godefroy Haines family from Rye, Westchester, New York, some of whom were also Loyalists in Upper Canada.

The story of Richard and Margaret Haines

Richard Haines, the progenitor of the Haines family that Settled in the Burlington COunty area of New Jersey, unfortunately never made it to see the new land. Having embarked with his family, including a pregnant wife, at Gravesend, England, on the 'Amity,' they sailed from Downs, England, for West Jersey, on April 23, 1682. The trip was long and tedious, as was common in the days of sailing ships.

The "Amity" was a slow-moving sailing vessel of the type then prevalent. Her captain was Richard Diamond, a veteran, whose father had been a captain before him. In her hold, the "Amity" carried various commodities which were assured of a ready sale in America-dried beef, silks and satins, rum and tea.

No premonition of impending tragedy presented itself as the ship, her sails billowing to the breeze, slowly moved away from the dock, while friends of those on board shouted their last farewells and wished the travelers "bon Voyage."

Sailing ships in those days, were at the mercy of the elements and shortly after leaving England a storm of great intensity swept from the west and engulfed the ship. As the night wore on the waves mounted to gigantic proportions and soon the ship was completely off her course.

After weeks, during which the "Amity" valiantly fought her way across the ocean, provisions ran low. The women and children were given preference in the matter of the little remaining food while the water, much of which had become fetid and germ ladened, was rigidly apportioned so that it would last until land was reached.

Then, when all danger seemed to have been averted and hopes had again taken the place of despair in the minds of the voyagers, Richard Haines was suddenly stricken. His wife, Margaret, was unable to assist him and he lay for days in a stupor.

His children, crowding about him, prayed that he might get well but Fate decreed otherwise and he died while the ship was still many miles from the coast.

Saddened by his death, certain of the passengers, staid by the bedside of his wife, while the ship lurched in the troughs of waves seemed intent upon adding to the misery and suffering the circumstances had produced. A few hours later her child was born.

A few days before the ship made port the baby was christened Joseph in the presence of the passengers and members of the crew. Even during those trying days, when only a little food remained, the Christian spirit of those hardy pioneers was manifested by the intensity of their prayers and the deeply religious spirit portrayed during the christening.
