653. Rosanna HADEN was born (date unknown).

Rosanna isn't named in any document with other members of the family. However there is a marriage in Rowan Co, 18 Mar 1823 - Rosanna Haden to Meshack Pinkston. Meshack Pinkston did figure in the deeds of distribution of Jesse Haden's property. Since her name is Rosanna, sister Elizabeth also married a Pinkston, and the date seems right, I do believe she belongs in this family.

Rosanna may have died young, as there is a another marriage for a Meshack Pinkston, 7 Jul 1852, Rowan Co NC, to Euphimea Brown. And there seems to have been in interim wife as well - see Margaret in the 1850 census.
Online databases say that Meshack married Margaret Roberts, 17 Jan 1827 in Davidson Co. They list two children for Meshack and Rosanna - Jesse F. Pinkston and Mary L. Pinkston who is said to have married Alexander F. Smith.

I also found an even earlier marriage for Meshack Pinkston - in 1793 - possibly there were two, or even three, successive Meshacks living in Rowan Co.
