HENRY ISAAC HAINES was born in Medford NJ on January 6, 1887 to William H. Haines and his wife, the former Mary P Wright. Besides Henry, there was an older sister, Eleanor, and two brothers, R. Newborn and Charles Pancoast Haines. 

It appears that older brother Charles had come to Camden by 1906, and that he may have brought Henry with him. Charles P. Haines was working as a clerk and living at 324 Washington Street when the 1906 Camden City directory was compiled.

Around November of 1909 Henry I. Haines married. The 1910 Census shows Henry I. and Martha Haines living at 914 North 8th Street in North Camden. Charles P. Haines also resided there. The brothers worked as salesmen in groceries. A boarder also resided there. Martha Haines bore a son, Charles H. Haines, around 1911. By 1914 Henry I. Haines had gone into business as a butcher at 546 North 7th Street.

The 1920 census shows that Charles P. Haines was still living with his brother at the time. He was working as a manager of a wholesale grocery. The family lived and worked at 546 North 7th Street through 1929. 

The 1930 census shows that the family had moved to 921 North 7th Street. Young Charles H. Haines was working as a clerk at the RCA-Victor Plant. Older Brother Charles P. Haines was still working for a wholesale grocer. 

In the early 1930s Henry I. Haines was active politically with the Republican party in Camden. He was elected to the Republican County Committee from the Tenth Ward in 1932 and 1933.

By 1942 Henry I. Haines had moved away from Camden. His draft card states that he had remarried and was living with his wife, Edna, on a farm he owned in on New Freedom Road in Williamstown NJ.
