  • Notes 
    • Robert Newman Haining probably was engaged in more occupations during his adulthood than any of his brothers. At one time he worked in a stave mill somewhere on the Sunflower River and nearly lost one of his thumbs in the process; it being stiff ever thereafter. Prior to his marriage, Newman had entered into some sort of partnership with J. D. Potter in the operation of a small store in Satartia, presumably selling groceries and other staples.

      Newman married Marguerite Elizabeth Hamel May 10, 1925 in Yazoo City, MS. The couple made their home in Satartia where Newman was engaged in the mercantile business. In early 1927, The Great Flood of the Mississippi River occurred and Satartia was severely flooded, including the store at which Newman was in some sort of partnership with J.D. Potter, and Newman was left without a job. At some point, he and his brother-in-law Lawrence Hamel, began working for his father-in-law, Louis Hamel, who was a plumber in Yazoo City. Later, he worked for the American Steam Laundry on South Main Street and drove a truck to pick up and deliver laundry to customers. Sometime in 1936 Newman lost his job at the laundry, presumably as a result of the Great Depression, and then was employed as a foreman of a WPA work crew. Newman later worked in downtown Yazoo City at Wise Brothers department store, which operated as a wholesale supplier of food and dry goods to many plantations in the area and as a retail dry good store. Newman sold men’s clothing, hats, shoes, yard goods for sewing, paint, wallpaper and staple groceries. Newman remained employed with Wise Brothers until his retirement in 1969, when the store was closed after the death of J. S. Wise, the proprietor.

      After the death of his wife Marguerite in December 1984, Newman continued to reside next door to his daughter Mary Katherine until late 1985 when he fell and broke his hip. He was transported to a hospital in Jackson, MS for surgery, however postoperative complications developed and he lapsed into a coma. He died February 10, 1986 in a hospice in Belzoni, MS; never having regained consciousness. His brother, Emmitte, his daughter Mary Katherine, and his son Joe were at his side when he breathed his last. Robert Newman Haining, Sr., and Marguerite Elizabeth (Hamel) Haining are buried in the Haining Family lot in Glenwood Cemetery, Yazoo City. [8]
