to keep the workers in slavery.

Boise, Idaho – Vernie Haywood, Daughter of Big Bill Haywood

The following photograph, although sadly miss-named, is the best that we have found of Vernie Haywood, the eldest daughter of William D. Haywood. Vernie was born in Nevada in November of 1890. She turned 16 last November. Henrietta is Haywood’s youngest daughter who was born in Silver City, Idaho, on June 28, 1897. She will soon celebrate her 10th birthday.
