Jefferson HADEN and Elizabeth MORTON were married on 21 October 1824 in Logan County, Kentucky.584 Elizabeth MORTON585,586, daughter of William Jordan MORTON and Martha PRYOR, was born on 2 September 1794 in Louisa County, Virginia.44,251,581,587 Pat Reid's papers give her birth date as 1796, which would make her somewhat older than Jefferson. This doesn't agree with 1850 Census information which makes her born in 1804. The 1860 census gave her age as 62, born in 1798. She died on 9 February 1876 at the age of 81 in Russellville, Logan County, Kentucky.44,251

There is no known familial relationship between Elizabeth Morton and her mother-in-law Rebecca Smith (Morton) Haden. Two separate families.

Jefferson HADEN and Elizabeth MORTON had the following children:



Frances M. HADEN.



Sarah M. HADEN.



James HADEN.



Martha R. HADEN.



Margaret HADEN was born about 1835 in Logan County, Kentucky.581 She died about 1855 at the age of 20.588

Margaret was still at home with her parents in 1850. She wasn't with her mother in 1860. There is a Logan Co marriage for M. H. Haden to J. M. McClain, Sept of 1860. Marriage Book 3, p.25.

I did find a Joseph and Margaret McClean in the 1870 census of approximately the right age - they had four children. They were living in Auburn in Logan Co KY.

The Felts homepage claimed this daughter had died about 1855, but not all of their Haden information is correct.
