Maida Ruth Haynie was born January 23rd, 1900 to John Morgan Haynie and Sadie Viola Marsh near Alfonso, VA. She was the third of 15 children.

The census taken in June of 1900 listed Maida not by name, but as "infant," indicating that she was not named for serveral months after her birth. The family lived in the Mantua district of Lancaster County, no road name was given. Her father was recorded as working as a farmer and blacksmith. He owned their home mortgage free.

The 1910 census again showed her family in the same area and recorded that they lived on the road from Lancaster to Alfonso. Maida's father was listed as working as a blacksmith. Her mother was listed as having eight children with six still living.

The 1920 census showed Maida still living with her parents, her age was given as 20. Her father was listed as a general store merchant. The family was still in the Mantua district, but no road names were recorded.

Maida married John Elbert Bush on March 21st, 1922. He was 20 years older than her. Their marriage was recorded in Lancaster County, but performed at the residence of Rev. George T. Schools in Richmond County. They went on to have five children between 1923 and 1928.

Maida was committed to Eastern State Mental Hospital in Williamsburg, VA sometime around November 19th, 1928. She died there on December the 1st. Her death certificate stated that she died from "suicide by strangulation," secondary causes were, "manic, depressed, insanity." Some family members speculated at the time and for years after that she was assaulted and killed by either a staff member or another patient. She was buried at Lebanon Church in Alfonso.
