A light from our home is gone
A voice we loved is stilled
A place is vacant in our hearts
That never can be filled."

The tombstone of Lafayette ADAMS indicates he was born in Pulaski County Kentucky November 10, 1835 and died in Altoona Kansas, May 9, 1909. A bronze star beside the headstone says "Veteran - 1861-1865"

Harriet HAINEY

No information about birth or death dates. She married Francis M. WALL on April 19, 1863, in Nodaway County, MO. Harriet WALL is not mentioned in the probate petition in the estate of her brother, Milford E. HAINEY, in 1879. She is mentioned in the biography of another brother, P. J. HAINEY, in 1901. That biography does not provide a place of residence for Harriet.

Louisa M. HAINEY

No information about birth date. She married John C. PULLY on January 30, 1870, in Nodaway County, MO. Louisa died before 1879 when her brother, Milford HAINEY's estate was probated. Probate referred to, "Louisa M. PULLEY, Resides in Kansas, age 8 yrs past, Minor child of Louisa M. Pully, formerly Louisa M. HAINEY, Dec'd." A document entitled Special Power of Attorney and dated June 14, 1888, was signed by Louisa M. REEDER (maiden name Louisa M. Pully) and Scott W. REEDER giving power of attorney to P. J. HAINEY of Nodaway County, MO. A second document, signed by the same couple is dated November 1, 1888, in Stockton, Rooks County, Kansas, and acknowledges service of notice of final settlement by Rufus McMACKIN as guardian of Louisa M. REEDER, formerly Louisa M. PULLY. This document releases Rufus McMACKIN from any "irregularities" regarding his duties as guardian and places all power in the hands of P. J. HAINEY. From information in these documents, it appears Louisa M. (Pully) Reeder, was born about 1871. Whether her mother died in childbirth or at some other point between 1871 and 1879 is not known. Nor do we have any information about Louisa's father, John C. PULLY. It does appear Louisa was the only child born of her parent's marriage.

Nancy HAINEY

No information about birth or death dates. She married William H. B. SHEPHERD on October 29, 1860, in Nodaway County, MO. The 1879 list of heirs of Milford E. HAINEY, her brother, includes names of Nancy Shepherd and husband, William H. B. SHEPHERD. The list states they were living in Andrew County Missouri. We have no further information about this family.

Milford E. HAINEY

No information about birth date. In September 1870, a document, written by Henry M. CARVER, "a practising physician," was filed with the "Court of Nodaway County" stating that Milford E. Hainey was "incapacitated for ordinary business transactions, in consequence of the continued effects of Epilepsy (or Fits)." The document was notarized by Rufus McMACKIN, J.P. A supporting document was filed by Perry J. HAINEY. On the 17th of May 1879, a "Guardian's and Curator's Inventory and Affidavit," was signed by Rufus McMACKIN. Some receipts of money from this settlement were signed in 1877. The biography of P. J. HAINEY, Milford's brother, says that Milford died in Kentucky. When, and where, Milford Hainey died is uncertain. It does seem certain that he had no wife or children.
