Very Good with no DJ. Maroon cloth with gold lettering on spine and cover . Raleigh Rutherford Haynes (1851-1917) , textile manufacturer, the fourth child and oldest son of Charles H. And Sarah Walker Haynes, was born at Ferry, in Rutherford County [NC]. Charles Haynes, a landowner, teacher, and sheriff of the county, died when Raleigh was about eight, leaving his widow with eight children to rear. Young Haynes received instruction from his oldest sister,Letitia, but further education was sacrificed so he could help his mother operate the 200-acre farm left by his father. At about age twenty, Haynes went to Union County, S. C, with his younger brother, John, to work in the cotton fields. After about two years, he returned to Rutherford County to invest his savings in a general store and a sawmill. In addition to these enterprises, he farmed. By reinvesting his profits, he became one of the largest landowners in western North Carolina. (Haynes, Raleigh Rutherford, Businessmen, North Carolina)
