William married Eliza Newman in Jefferson Co MS in 1828. His sister Nancy had married Josiah Newman in Logan Co in 1824. A deed of May of 1831 in Logan Co states that Josiah and Nancy of Mississippi sold her share of her father's estate. It's interesting that there are no deeds of the allotment of the estate of James Haden recorded for either Nancy or William M. recorded with the others in Oct of 1828. Possibly neither was in Logan Co at that time.

Logan Co Tax records reveal the following:
William M. Haden had not been mentioned before 1830 and apparently the property of his father had not yet been divided until Sep of 1828. In 1830, Rebecca declared for herself & Harriet, Mary & James as she had the year before. Nathaniel Felts declared for himself and as agent for William M. Haden, 83 acres, and Josiah Newman, 220 acres, and for the land of James Haden in Hopkins Co, Drakes Creek [which I believe is the same land, 400 acres, that James had long paid tax on located on Drakes Crk, just a new county division] Josiah Newman was the husband of Nancy Haden, sister to William M. It appears they are both no longer in Logan Co and Nathaniel Felts, a brother-in-law, is taking care of their property and obligations. I think this may very well indicate that William M. Haden & Josiah Newman & his Haden wife could have gone to Mississippi together. In 1831, Jefferson Haden declared for William M. Haden and Josiah Newman and the out-of-county property of his father James. William not found again until 1835 when Wm M. Haden paid tax on 90 acres on waters of the Gasper. He had 2 slaves, 5 horses, and a cow. [I'm quite sure this is the 83 acres mentioned earlier; acreage often varied somewhat.] By the next year he had 177 acres.

Bureau of Land Management; Government Land Office patents tell more of this story. Between December of 1830 and February of 1840, a total of 14 patents were issued to William M. Haden in Madison Co MS, two of them for two separate tracts. Several of these adjoined patents issued to Josiah Newman. Both were listed as "of Jefferson Co MS" until about 1831. Deeds of Madison Co would reveal when William sold these properties - it's apparent he did move back to Kentucky.

Frank Read <> corresponds that he has a gg grandmother, Rebecca Haden, born in Jan of 1829 or Jan of 1830 in Mississippi. This Rebecca married in Logan Co KY in 1848 to Peter Henry Morton; she married (2nd) in Oct 1863 to William Stewart/Stuart. Rebecca Haden Morton Stewart died in 1906 in Greenville, Muhlenburg Co KY and is buried in the Haden cemetery on the former property of George Haden. Frank had been under the impression that Rebecca belongs with the family of Robert D. Haden, son of Zachariah & Elizabeth Poor Haden, that lived in Monroe/Lowndes Co MS. The Lowndes Co Hadens have been well researched and have no Rebecca, nor did they have any connections to the state of Kentucky. By the 1850 Census in Logan Co, William M. & Eliza A. Haden have as their oldest child, Joseph age 14 born in KY. Since they had been married 22 years by 1850, it would seem plausible that they had an older child or children, and Rebecca was their daughter.

There were Newmans living in Adams & Jefferson Co MS as early as 1810. I believe William M. went with his sister and brother-in-law to visit family in MS, met Eliza A. and married her, and they had at least one child there before returning to Kentucky in 1835 - this could very well be the above Rebecca.

Note that this census does have a place for Rebecca in the family.

William Morton HADEN and Eliza R. NEWMAN were married on 28 April 1828 in Jefferson County, Mississippi.588,594 Eliza R. NEWMAN1,595, daughter of ??? NEWMAN, was born in 1810 in Mississippi.594,596

1880 Census: Eliza with Mary and George still at home. She stated that both her parents were born in Pennsylvania.

A WorldConnect file has Eliza & Josiah Newman as children of a George & Mary Newman of Pennsylvania with no further data. I am not so sure Josiah and Eliza were brother and sister ...they may have had a different kinship. It appears that Josiah may have been the son of a Benjamin Newman of Jefferson Co MS.

I found the abstract of a will from Jefferson Co MS, Book A - Benjamin Newman, dated 2 Oct 1818. He named his wife Olive, eldest son as Isaac. Other sons were Reuben B., Uriah, and Josiah. Daughters were Maria Irwin, and Frances and Betsey Newman. "Betsey" could of course be a nickname for Eliza, but there was no Samuel T. in these children and the following article indicates Eliza had a brother Samuel. Uriah & Josiah Newman of Jefferson Co MS, took out two land patents in Madison Co MS, November of 1827. By 1831, a Josiah Newman was living in Madison Co, and acquiring more land adjoining that of William M. Haden. The possibility exists that there were two Josiah Newmans in Madison Co.

There was also a will of a Simeon Newman, dated 16 Dec 1825. He named a daughter Eliza Martha. [it's possible that could be Eliza and Martha as commas are so often omitted] But Simon had no son named Samuel, either.

Not the right Samuel:
A Samuel T. Newman married Mary Ann Elmore, 1 Jan 1833, Jefferson Co TN and they are listed in the 1850 census, Jefferson Co. He is stated to have been born 1810, TN. He seems to have been Samuel J. Newman instead and probably son of a Margaret.

William Morton HADEN and Eliza R. NEWMAN had the following children:



Rebecca S. HADEN.



Joseph N. HADEN.



Margaret HADEN.



Frances A. C. "Fannie" HADEN.



Mary HADEN was born in 1844 in Logan County, Kentucky.594,595

Found with her mother in the 1880 census. Had not married at age 35.



Sarah HADEN588 was born in 1849 in Logan County, Kentucky.594

Said to have married Joseph N. Haden, likely a cousin. Since that was also her brother's name, I believe this is entirely erroneous. Her brother Joseph N. Haden did marry a person listed only as S. S. Thurman, but the censuses suggest she was also said to be a Sarah

Said to have had a daughter Minnie, b. 1862, but I believe this is instead Joseph and his wife Sarah Thurman, not this younger Sarah.

Joseph N. Haden, age 33, farmer, b. KY
Sarah L., age 28, b. KY [note - this Sarah Haden would only be age 21 in 1870 - not really old enough to have an eight year old daughter....]
Minnie N., age 8
Samuel Cook, age 21, farm laborer
Thomas Walker, 16, farm laborer
Ellen Doran, 20, domestic servant, Mulatoo with children Martha, age 2, list as Black and Joseph, age 3 months, mulatto.
Living next door was Marian W. Thurman, age 49 - probably Joseph's mother-in-law

In 1860, Sarah Thurman, age 17, was living with Jackson & Marian Thurman in Logan Co.



George HADEN was born in 1854 in Kentucky.595

George was age 7 in 1860 so maybe born 1853.
