James Clayton "Jimmie" HADEN and Permelia C. MOORE were married on 16 July 1874 in Fannin County, Texas.135,143,146 Permelia C. MOORE79,148, daughter of Enoch Jasper MOORE and Sarah Ann MCMAHAN, was born in December 1854 in Barry County, Missouri.148,149 She died on 17 February 1908 at the age of 53 in Durant, Bryan County, Oklahoma.
The 1880 Census says that "Amelia" was born in Texas; her father and mother born in Alabama.
In 1900 Pamelia gave birthplace of her father and mother both as Tennessee. She had 4 children, all living.
I believe I found Permelia in Fannin Co TX in 1870. Information from the TXFANNIN mail list indicated Enoch Jasper Moore, married Sarah Ann McMahan - she died in Ladonia on 23 Jan 1867 at age 37. Their children listed as Permelia C., Samuel M., George G. and Cornelius N. Moore. 1870 Census in Ladonia, Precinct 3, household 137 has Jasper More, age 35, b. TN. Mary, age 40, b. TN and keeping house - this would no doubt be a new wife since Sarah had died in 1867. The children seem to be a blend of two households. Purmelepy [Permelia] age 16, Samuel 13, George 11, Nathan [Cornelius N.?] 9 and Jasper age 7, all born in Missouri. Granville, age 2, born in Texas. Louise Merick 17, Curdeley [probably Cordelia] 15, Nanny 13 and Sue or Lee, age 11 - all four of these girls born in Texas and possibly children of Mary and her first husband.
Buried Highland Cemetery, Durant, OK.

James Clayton "Jimmie" HADEN and Permelia C. MOORE had the following children:
James Clayton "Jimmie" HADEN and Emma J. SIMS were married about 1910.79 Emma J. SIMS79,150 was born on 22 February 1866 in Texas.79 She died on 12 October 1957 at the age of 91 in Dallas, Dallas County, Texas.
In 1910, Emma & James had been married 1 month. Enumerated in May. Two of the children listed with the household may have been hers. She stated she had three children, all living. There was a male, probably "Carl" Low, age 20, "son to wife", Single. He appears to have married James' daughter Katie in the next few years. There were two girls in the household, both age 17. Both could be "Katy" - did the enumerator count James' daughter twice or is one of them a daughter of Emma's - the name could be Ruthe Low. The names are difficult to read as the enumerator's handwriting is poor. One of the daughters born TX, parents born in MO as was the young man's (which makes no sense). The other daughter is said b. OK, father b. AL, mother b. MO - this would not fit James' daughter.
Emma and James Haden had apparently been married about 20 years at the time of the 1930 Census. There are three step granddaughters listed in the household: Dorothy Matthews, age 13, born in South Carolina, Christie Matthews, age 10, and Betty Matthews age 8, both born in OK. They might be daughters of Ruth Low.
