HAYNES, THOMAS N. (ca. 1805–?). Thomas N. Haynes was born in Virginia about 1805 and settled in Victoria County before 1840, when he was made secretary of the corporation board of Victoria. On March 6, 1842, he enrolled for three months' service as a private in Capt. John S. Menefee's company of Texas Volunteers. Haynes represented Victoria County in the Republic of Texas Seventh Congress, where he served from November 14, 1842, to January 16, 1843. He was living in Calhoun County in 1847, when he was elected county commissioner, and in Jackson County in February 1852, when he collected pay for his military service. He was not listed in the 1860 census.
