I did find a death certificate for Clyde Clifton Haden, b. 19 Oct 1895, died 18 Nov 1959. Father was listed as William J. Haden, mother as Donnie Martha Keeton. Clyde is buried at Rose Hill, Tyler, Texas.

William Jackson HADEN and Donnie Martha KEETON were married on 14 November 1892 in Fannin County, Texas.770,964 Donnie Martha KEETON, daughter of James Robert KEETON and Martha MCGLASSON, was born on 25 November 1876 in Adair County, Kentucky. She died on 8 October 1945 at the age of 68 in Olney, Young County, Texas.

I found a Texas death certificate [] for Donnie Martha Haden - she died in Olney, Young Co TX, 8 Oct 1956.  but her residence was Megargel, Archer Co TX where I had found the family in 1920.   Said born in Adair Co, KY, 25 Nov 1876.  Her father's name listed simply as "Keeton"; her mother's name unknown.  The informant's surname was Haden, but the given name is unreadable and doesn't seem to match children that were in the census in 1920 - of course by 1956, the informant could have been a grandchild.

William Jackson HADEN and Donnie Martha KEETON had the following children:
