Story from the mail list LADD@rootsweb.com re one Amos Ladd, led to more information about John Jouett Haden.
On the Vandalia Area Historical Society website, http://www.vandaliaareahistoricalsociety.org/history.html, is the article, VANDALIA CITY FOUNDERS, which contains several items about Haden. Vandalia was located in Audrain Co, MO.
"Imagine yourself in 1870 and you hear of a group of men wanting to build a town on the barren prairie.....
Vandalia is here today, the Queen of the Prairie, the pride of every citizen within its borders and every man for miles round about, because a group of men, Aaron McPike, Amos Ladd, John Jouett Haden and Harmon Caldwell, came our way. "
"Around 1859 Amos Ladd moved to Audrain County and was elected sheriff in 1860 and 1862....Possibly the most important of his holdings began as a partnership with Silas Wilson in November 1868. Ladd and Wilson acquired a 160-acre tract in eastern Audrain County. Over a short period of time Ladd had bought out Wilson and transferred this half to Colonel John Jouett Haden and his wife, Anna M. Haden, on August 16, 1870. Colonel Haden was Ladds partner in selling lots from the property between 1870-1874. During the course of this period of time, the settlement was named Laddonia. On August 20, 1874, Amos Ladd and Rebecca Ladd sold their half interest in the unsold lots of Laddonia to James A. Simpson. Colonel Haden and his wife retained their interest until October 30, 1875, when they too sold their interest to James A. Simpson."
"Ladds depth of involvement in Vandalia is unclear; however, records show Ladd as having been a part of the early development of the town and its filing for organization along with McPike, Haden and Caldwell."
"John Jouett Haden was born on October 19, 1821, in Montgomery County, Kentucky, and apparently lived in the Lexington area as a young man. Colonel Haden and his wife, Anna, were partners with Amos and Rebecca Ladd in the origination of the town of Laddonia, Missouri, owning the 160 acres from which Laddonia was carved. The Hadens were also instrumental in the very early history of Vandalia. The will of Anna M. Haden was probated in Mexico on October 2, 1877. By its terms, J. J. Haden, her husband, received property. Also receiving property were Mary Stanhope, a daughter, and James C. Haden, a son. All property mentioned in the will was located in Mexico [MO] and Vandalia. About 1880 Colonel John J. Haden was an unsuccessful candidate for the legislature from Audrain County. He died at Bagley Station, near Texarkana, Arkansas, on June 29, 1900. He was buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Mexico. He was buried next to his daughter, Mary (Haden) Stanhope, and her husband."
from a second article:
"Aaron McPike, Harmon Caldwell, Amos Ladd and Col. J. J. Haden, filed the original plat of the town [Vandalia] on July 24, 1871, with the county. Coincidentally, the plat and neighboring town, Laddonia, was filed at the same time."
