There was a fire in Ladonia on 1 Oct 1896. It killed three people - Mrs. Jane Knapp and her niece and nephew, Carrie & Jimmie McFarland - and destroyed one side of the Ladonia square. The paper lists the losses and insurance coverage: J. C. Haden, groceries, loss $3000, insurance $1200; then later lists J. W. Haden, damage to building $1500, fully covered. Since the brother James C. Haden did not live in Fannin Co, the first listing was likely a typo - probably J. B. Haden [Joseph B.] was correct. I believe J. B. owned the lot; his brother ran the grocery.
1900 Census - John, "Capitalist", and Mary and Dewitt. Also a niece, Alice Jones is living with them. This would be the daughter of John's deceased sister Virginia.
1910 Census - John W. Hayden, living in the Alexander Hotel on the south side of the Public Square with wife Mary. They stated they had been married 25 years (it was actually 40) His place of birth, and his parents, given as Arkansas. I don't believe either of the Hadens gave the information to the Census taker.

Mary Ellen's birth given by the family as 12 Nov 1849. I have also found it as 2 Jan 1849 - the first one matches the 1850 census information.

Annie appears to be living at home with her mother in the 1910 Census. Age is given as 34 which would be about 10 years too young. Saleslady in the Dry Goods - maybe at the Blakeney store?
