Haynes T. Woods appears in the 1850 Census of St. Clair County, Illinois at age 18, the oldest son of William Woods and Melinda Scott. The handwriting is somewhat uncertain and the name is often transcribed as Harris. I believe they meant to write Hains or Haines.
In December 1853, Haynes and his father William made separate property purchases in Section 12 of Township 2 South, Range 8 West (Prairie du Long) of St. Clair County.
In December 1854, in St. Clair County, Haynes married Elizabeth J. Robertson, the widow of Thomas Robertson. Her maiden name was Starr. She had a daughter, Minerva Elzira Robertson, born in 1849, from her first marriage.

    Haines Woods, age 18, born in St Clair County, IL

    In the 1850 census, Haines is often transcribed "Harris". In the 1860, the census taker wrote a sound-alike "James". Perhaps this is why in the 1870, he goes by "Henry".
