    W. A. HAINES

    W. A. HAINES, a representative member of the Miami County bar, enjoying a substantial practice at Troy, has been a resident of this city for about seventeen years. He was born February 28, 1869, on his grandfather's farm in Concord Township, Miami County, Ohio, and is a son of Theodore Haines, who was born in Kentucky and died in Miami County in 1874.

    W. A. Haines completed his literary course at the Southern Illinois State University at Carbonville, in the early eighties, graduating in the high school teachers' course. For seven years and three months he then devoted himself to teaching school and then turned his attention to the study of law, preparing with Attorney W. S. Thomas, of Troy and being admitted to the bar in 1895. Mr. Haines returned to teaching for one year longer, having been exceedingly successful in that profession, and then spent one year in Judge William's law office. In 1897 he was elected city solicitor and after serving one term he found his time sufficiently occupied with private business and has closely applied himself to his professional work ever since. He is a member of the Miami County Bar Association and practices in all the State and in the Federal Courts.

    In 1900, Mr. Haines was married to Miss Blanche Bousman, of Miami County, and they have two daughters, Mildred and Helen. Mr. Haines is identified with the Odd Fellows, the Knights of Pythias, the Elks, and the Troy Club.
