Biographical / Historical

Collection materials indicate that the Haymond family and Watson family lines intersect when sisters Rebecca Haymond (1796-1845) and Ann Maria Haymond (1801-1844) married brothers Thomas Watson (1788-1851) and James Dent Watson (1796-1865). Thomas and Rebecca Watson had multiple children, including Thomas Green Watson (1821-1865) and James Otis Watson (1815-1902), the Fairmont industrialist. James Dent and Ann Maria Watson had multiple children including Thomas F. Watson (1832-1896).

Rebecca and Ann Maria were sisters of Thomas S. Haymond (1794-1869); their parents were William Haymond (1771-1848) and Cynthia Carroll (1774-1852). Thomas S. Haymond and his sisters are grandchildren of Major William Haymond (1740-1821) and his first wife, Cassandra Clelland (1741-1788). Major Haymond served in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War, commanding troops at Prickett's Fort, and later became surveyor for Monongalia County and then Harrison County, [West] Virginia. Thomas S. Haymond was the father of Alpheus F. Haymond (1823-1893) and Virginia Haymond (1834-1865), author of the journal in this collection. Thomas S. Haymond was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, a branch of the Virginia General Assembly. He had to travel to the state capital for this work, which explains why Virginia Haymond was in Richmond at the time of the state of Virginia's secession. Alpheus was also there to represent Marion County at the Virginia Secession Convention of 1861.

Series 1. Journal of Virginia Haymond
Mixed Materials Box: 1 Mixed Materials Box: 2 Folder: 1 Mixed Materials Box: 2 Folder: 2 1859-1863, undated
Scope and Contents

This series includes Virginia Haymond's original journal/diary as well as typed and handwritten excerpts copied from it. Virginia C. Haymond (January 20, 1834 - August 18, 1865) lived near Fairmont in Marion County, [West] Virginia. Her father was Colonel Thomas S. Haymond, who served as a representative to the Virginia House of Delegates and the US House of Representatives before serving the Confederacy during the Civil War. Alpheus F. Haymond was her brother. Virginia's journal begins in 1859, lacks entries for 1860, and in January of 1861 she was in Richmond with her family, since her father was called in for the extra session of the House of Delegates and her brother attended the Virginia Secession Convention of 1861 as a representative for Marion County. Her journal skips from late January to early July 1861, but she gives a summary of what happened in the interim regarding secession. Her family was aligned with the secessionists, and her diary gives her thoughts and impressions of a turbulent time in the state's history, when her father and brother were not safe at their home because of their alliances. Virginia faces many trials including hiding a deserter in her family's Marion County home in January 1862 (John Matthews, who "joined Showalter's Company" but then decided he did not want to serve with them). The journal ends in April 1863.
