Henry Huntley Haight

HAIGHT, Henry Huntley, lawyer, born in Rochester, New York, 20 May, 1825; died in San Francisco, California, 2 September, 1878. His father, Fletcher M. Haight, was United States judge for the district of California. The son was graduated at Yale in 1844, studied law, and was admitted to the bar at St. Louis in October, 1846. He afterward removed to California, where he entered on the practice of his profession in 1850. He was appointed United States district judge by President Lincoln, and in 1867 was elected governor by the Democratic party, remaining in office until 1871, when he was renominated, but defeated by Newton Booth. He then returned to the practice of law, and was a member-elect of the State constitutional convention.

--BEGIN-Daniel Haines

HAINES, Daniel, governor of New Jersey, born in New York city, 6 January, 1801; died in Hamburg, Sussex County, New Jersey, 26 January, 1877. He was graduated at Princeton in 1820, studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1823, and settled at Hamburg in 1824. In 1837 he entered public life as a member of the council, and was one of the board of canvassers who resisted the governor in giving certificates of election to the Whig candidates in the famous "broad-seal" election. In 1843 he was elected governor, and while in office proclaimed the new constitution. His efforts during his one year's term of office left their impress on the common schools and on the state normal school, which had been projected by him. In 1847 he was again elected governor, and served for three years. He was afterward chosen a judge of the supreme court, where he served until 1861, and was during his tenure of office a member ex-officio of the court of error and appeals. From 1870 till 1876 he was a member of several judicial commissions relating to state boundaries. He was one of the committee on the reunion of the two branches of the Presbyterian church, and aided materially in accomplishing the result. He was influential in establishing the insane asylum in Trenton, the soldiers' home in Newark, and the reform school for juveniles in Jamesburg. He went to Cincinnati in 1870 as a commissioner to the National prison reform association, and was one of the committee that met in London in 1872 to organize an international congress on prison discipline. He was also president of the Sussex county Bible society, and the oldest living trustee of Princeton college.--His son, Alanson Austin, clergyman; born in Hamburg, New Jersey, 18 March, i830, was graduated at Princeton in 1857, and at the theological seminary there in 1858. He held pastorates in Berlin, Maryland, and Amgansett, L. I., till 1862, when he was appointed chaplain of the 15th New Jersey regiment. He served till the close of the war, accompanying his regiment in the thirty-six battles in which it was engaged, and since his discharge in 1865 has held a pastorate in his native place. In 1873 he was appointed engineer of the Palestine exploration society, and in that capacity visited the Holy Land, Egypt, and Turkey, making maps, sketches of Oriental scenery, and transcripts of rock inscriptions. Mr. Haines is the author of a" History of the Fifteenth Regiment of New Jersey Volunteers" (New York, 1883), and is a contributor to various periodicals.--Another son, Thomas Ryerson, lawyer, born in Hamburg, New Jersey, 15 March, 1838; died near Harrisonburg, Virginia, 6 June, 1862, was graduated at Princeton in 1857, and in 1860, having been admitted to the bar, entered on the practice of his profession in Newark, New Jersey On 15 August, 1861, he became 1st lieutenant in the 1st New Jersey cavalry regiment, and in March, 1862, was commissioned captain after declining an appointment on a general's staff. He had already gained credit as adjutant and regimental judge advocate. He became the victim of a rash movement on the part of the colonel of his regiment. Five miles in advance of its supports, that regiment was driven into the woods near Harrisonburg, and was surprised and cut in pieces by a vastly superior force. While he was bravely endeavoring to rally his troops, Captain Haines was mortally wounded.
