Fourth Generation


197. Jesse HADEN153 was born on 6 December 1776. He died on 11 May 1836 at the age of 59 in Davidson County, North Carolina.

Douglas Haden had two young men in his household in 1790, one is identified as his son, Billy Douglas Haden, in the will of Douglas' father. The deed from Douglas to Billy D. and to Jesse and then a joint sale of land that had been part of Douglas's earliest land grant, indicate that surely Jesse was also a son.

Groom: Jesse Haden
Bride: Rosana Sloan
Bond Date: 29 Aug 1797
Bond #: 000125423
Level Info: North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868

County: Rowan
Record #: 01 170
Bondsman: John Sloan
Witness: Jno Rogers

These two deeds made on the same day. John Sloan was the father of Rosanna, Jesse Haden's wife. They seem to be basically wedding gifts as they had married in August of 1797. One would assume Douglas was also making deed to his son, although the deed doen not so specify.

When I read the above abstract I thought I had found the proof of Jesse as Douglas' son. However, when I read the actual deed it said nothing about “son” - instead it plainly read “now Jesse Haden's on the west side of the road” Follows is a better abstract from the microfilm.

Douglas Haden bought John Andrew's land at a sheriff's sale, apparently in two parcels [see his notes]. He sold one to Jesse. One tract may have been sold to his brother-in-law Robert Bradshaw but not recorded, but Bradshaw sold to Jesse, too:

By June of 1801, Douglas Haden had died, apparently intestate as no will has ever been found or indicated. Douglas' widow Elizabeth was still living. The following quit claim, guaranteed by bond, may have been necessary because of the will of William Haden, passing the land down to Billy D. only.

Jesse Pearson was a son of Richmond Pearson and Sarah Haden, whose identity is obscure. They had several children, as many as four or five. Sarah was dead before her probable father Joseph - the omission of her children from his will has been justified as reasonable given the fact that Richmond Pearson was a very wealthy man which is proved by his land and slave holdings.

In early 1831, Rosanna Haden died. I believe these next series of deeds, dated on the same two days, are Jesse's attempt to give his children his lands and property after his death. This was sometimes done in lieu of a Will. All proved in the August session of the county court, 1832. Many of them witnesses by various brothers-in-law. I suspect the first two are probably in the form of bonds by son-in-law William Pinkston and son Franklin, for the provision of Jesse during his lifetime until they eventually inherit. The third, a kind of quit claim for the 490 acres on Potts Creek which was probably the home place.

Obviously Lucinda has had no children - Charles Lippard's middle initial was read as F in one place and G in this deed. I believe his surname was actually Leopard.


When Jesse Haden died in 1836, he left a widow and no will. His second wife's name was Mary. She was not included in any of his deeds to his children after Rosanna's death.

Jesse HADEN and Rosana SLOAN were married on 29 August 1797 in Rowan County, North Carolina. Rosana SLOAN, daughter of John SLOAN and Agnes [SLOAN], was born on 5 November 1777. She died on 16 January 1831 at the age of 53 in Davidson County, North Carolina.

Security: John Sloan; Witness Jno Rogers. NC Marriage Bonds.

Jesse & Rosana buried Fitzgerald/Haden Cemetery, Davidson Co NC along with several of their children/grandchildren.


John Sloan was apparently the father of Rosanna. He made a generous gift of three tracts of land to Jesse Haden on the same day as Jesse Haden's father made a gift of land - this was about two years after their marriage. John Sloan's will is recorded in Will Book D, p.78 without a date, or date of probate. I have seen only a brief abstract. Wife Agnes, was to have the homeplace. He had two daughters, Jean or Jane and Rosanna and owed a debt to Nathaniel Gadbury. [I suspect the daughters were to have the land after the death of their mother.] Executors were to be Isaac Wiseman and his wife. There is a bond, 19 Nov 1821, when Henry Sloan was appointed administrator of the estate of John Sloan. Perhaps, not the same man because Jane & Rosanna disposed of their property in 1809.

Found on Internet at WorldConnect re John Sloan
Rowan Co Will Book D, p.79
John Sloan Will. no date on will; no date of probate.
Wife Agness to have the homeplace. Daus: Jean [interchangeable with Jane], Rosannah. Debt owed by Nathaniel Gadbury. Extrs: wife & Isaac Wiseman. No witnesses, no signature.
I didn't look up an estate file for Sloan - would have been a different film from the “H's”
But this note said that on 19 Nov 1821, Henry Sloan was appointed administrator of the estate of John Sloan.
This same webpage listed numbers of land transactions for John Sloan to include grants for the tracts sold to Jesse & Rosanna. It also listed a number of other children. There were obviously other Sloans living in Rowan Co - I saw no reason for all of the other children being placed in the family - there were no likely deeds to possible additional sons or sons-in-law, etc. John's father was a Henry, but I suspect that he also had a brother Henry. The extra children may have been misplaced. I think it very unusual that a man would give daughters land and not his sons.
There was a deed, 7 Nov 1768 ….Henry Sloan to son John, personalty in exchange for three rooms in the west end of John Sloan's house for life. Proved Feb. Court 1771. DB 7, p.283
