The Hayman Family history collection includes family history/lineage documentation, recollections from some of the family members, manuscripts, and newspaper clippings about the Hayman Family. In the family history collection, there is a typed page from 2003 that tells when the Hayman family came to America, and how the family line progressed throughout the years until present day. There are several census papers on a few family members, as well as a listing of family descendants. Accompanying those documents are two family photographs. One manuscript is entitled "A Cycle of Race Relations on Maryland's Eastern Shore: Somerset County 1850-1910" by John R. Wennersten of the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore. The other manuscript is "Free Black Landowners on the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland 1783-1861" by Dr. Thomas E. Davidson from Salisbury State College. The newspaper clippings highlight the successful barber shop business some of the Hayman family descendants owned, as well as an article of Eldon Hayman's work life through his home office. Another article describes one of the Hayman's "sharp shooting" skills during a robbery. There are also a series of recollections from some of the Hayman family. One talks about life in Princess Anne County during the early to mid 1900's, another talks about the Armwood lynching of 1932, and finally, there are a few personal accounts from one family member about her youth and later career. The newspaper clippings and family history files have been moved to the family vertical files.
