Sixth Generation


907. James Woodson HADEN was born in 1850 in Ralls County, Missouri. He died in 1927 at the age of 77.

I have found this person as James Woodson Haden, but as a son of William Green Haden, in an online database. I believe that is incorrect. James is shown in a census with William and was likely the last child born to Parthenia Fisher. He was a brother to William Green Haden.

In 1870, he was still single and living at home with his father, stepmother & half brother.
1870 Census. New London, Spencer Twp, Ralls Co MO, Hh 63
William Hayden, age 65, b. KY. Mary, 50, b. MO.
James, 20, b. MO. John T. age 14, b. MO.

He is evidently the Woodson Haden who married Lou Holman.

Virgil Holman, brother-in-law, age 22, b. MO, parents b. KY

He lived two houses from Lucy Haden, age 65, b. KY, and Laura B., age 15, her granddaughter. Lucy was likely the widow of Nathan Haden, his uncle.

J. Woodson Haden is buried Fairview Cemetery, Frankford, Pike Co MO with the dates 1850-1927. Louisa and some of their children are also buried there.

James Woodson HADEN and Lousia V. HOLMAN were married about 1872. Lousia V. HOLMAN was born on 26 February 1853 in Pike County, Missouri. She died on 16 March 1930 at the age of 77 in Spencer Twp, Ralls County, Missouri.877

Strangely, Louisa's death certificate gives her name as Eliza V. Haden, widow of Woodson Haden. Her father was Wm Holman; her mother Sallie Hill. Zoris Haden of Shelbina, her son, was the informant. She died of heart disease and was buried Frankford, MO.

At the time of death, Zorus's wife was listed as Georgia Haden. However there is an earlier Missouri Death Certificate for Effie B. Haden, wife of Z. P. Haden. Effie was born 18 Sep 1882 and died 21 Aug 1932. She was born in Ralls Co MO, the daughter of Norval Brady and May Evans. Georgia must have been a second wife. The death certificate of Zorus states his parents as Woodson Haden and Lou Holman. Mrs. Wilma Johnson was the informant.
