Today in my database : Robert Haines (b. December 17, 1741)

Today's featured relative in my database is my maternal 6th-great grandfather, Robert Haines.

Robert was born December 17, 1741 in Burlington Co., NJ, the son of Jeremiah and Hannah (Bonnell) Haines. Robert married on May 17, 1766 in Burlington Co., NJ to Rachel Venicomb, daughter of Francis and Rachel (Lippincott) Venicomb. Rachel was born ca. 1742 and died March 30, 1817 in Burlington Co., NJ. Robert died June 21, 1821 in Burlington Co., NJ.

They were members of the Society of Friends (Quakers) in the Mount Holly Monthly Meeting. Robert was known as "Rich Bobby", and was reported to the monthly meeting on 1st mo. 5 dy. 1780 for paying a fine in lieu of personal services to carry on the war, and for this action he was disowned on 6th mo. 9 dy. 1780.

Some of the above dates were improperly recorded/converted from the Quaker dating system.
