Fifth Generation


643. Douglas P. HADEN was born between 1800 and 1805 in Rowan County, North Carolina. He died before November 1836 at the age of 36 in Davidson County, North Carolina.

Douglas P. Haden is not placed as a son of Billy D. in the Haden publications. However, Billy D. certainly showed young males in his household beginning in 1810 and he had been married to Elizabeth Ham for several years.

Here is the earliest appearance of Douglas P. Haden I've found so far in the Rowan Co. records.

I do not know where Douglas got this land - I did not find a previous deed to him. He is apparently age 21 since he can sell land. Possibly he inherited from his mother's family? More research needed.
