Sixth Generation

1019. George Burder HADEN was born on 18 March 1849 in Christian County, Kentucky.220,503 He died on 1 June 1928 at the age of 79 in Missouri.503

George said to have married Caroline Suiter. However, I found him in the 1870 Census in Johnson Co, IL, P.O. Vienna, living next door to his father. He was listed as George "Harden", age 21, born, Illinois. The lady with him was Lucinda, age 20, also born in Illinois; they had married in December. His father also listed as "Harden".

The Illinois marriage database online solved the problem of George's wife's name.
George B. Haden married Lucinda L [or C?]. Suiter, 19 Dec 1869, Johnson Co, IL.

By the way, the daughter of George B. Hayden and Lucinda Caroline Suiter - Maude E. Hayden, married James A. Griffith and I have photos of her with my aunt.
And, the daughter, Lillie May Hayden married James Granville Colley, a son to my direct ancestor.
So we are connected in a way.
Look forward to hearing back from you.

I can account for 8 of the children - 6 still at home - William, Clare, Oscar, Froney [Safronia?], Georgia & Maud. Lillie & Thomas, married.
After finding the 1880 census - Cintha, b. 1871, and James R., born 1875, can be added - that makes 10 children.
A FamilyTree on Ancestry lists a daughter Dora - that could be the 11th child.

Actually I received a photo of my aunt Geneva Colley when she was about 18 (about 1925) with two of the Hayden children and with three of the Ray children; and I'm not sure who they belong to. As far as I can read the handwriting on the back of the original photo, the children are listed as: Beulah Hayden, Lola Ray, Sabera Hayden, Ligene Ray, Geneva Colley (my aunt), and Love Ray. Could any of these names sound familiar to you?
This photo was taken in Doniphan, Missouri - Ripley County. The families actually came from Kentucky.
Any information would be appreciated. And thank you for the attached information you emailed.

My answer: Beulah and Obera were daughters of Thomas B. Haden, a son of George B. The Ray children were from Tennessee - children of Thomas O. Ray, found in Harris Twp, Ripley Co MO in 1920 and in Weakley Co, TN in 1910 - Love Ray, son born ca 1898, Larene, daughter, b. 1903, Zola, daughter b. 1905.
Geneva was probably the Jennie A., b. 1907, granddaughter in the home of John C. Colley in Graves Co KY in 1910.

MO Death Certificate #21605. George B. Hayden, died Jun 1st, 1928 in Ripley Co. Father listed as Richard Hayden, mother's maiden name given as Armstrong [that's new!]. Born Mar 18, 1848, Illinois. He was widowed - wife was Caroline. Died of pneumonia. Buried New Hope Cemetery - that's where Clyde & Frona Puryear are buried, too. The informant was Thomas M. Hayden of Paducah, KY. George appears to be the only Haden buried there.

Death Cert #4025. Clyde Vernon Puryear died 31 Jan 1959 in at LeMay Nursing home, St. Louis of a heart attack - but his usual residence listed as Doniphan. Mrs. Elmo Hawkins of St. Louis was informant, probably an employee of the nursing home. Clyde was born 30 Sep 1885, Mayfield, KY. Father & mother unknown. Buried New Hope Cemetery.
