William M. Haden was badly indexed in 1830 on Ancestry. The name was Hadeis - it is quite plainly Haden when viewed.
1840 Lowndes Co, MS [Handwritten p.14]
In February of 1841, William M. Haden asigned to McKinney Holderness three patents of land in Township 18, Lowndes Co. McKinney had an adopted daughter, Harriet Hayden, born about 1837. This coincidence of names is curious.
1850 Winston Co MS Census. William & Mary with all but the two oldest children. Mary born in GA. The oldest child still at home is Robert, age 22 (b. 1828), and he's also listed as born in GA, which is probably an error. Sarah, age 18 (b. 1832) in MS. Charles is shown as 16 (b. 1834).
1870 (at Enterprise taken 20 July): Mary (head) 68 GA ; Isabella 26 MS; Annie Johnson 29 MS; Martha Johnson 11 MS; William Johnson 13 MS; Mary D. Johnson 7 MS; Mary (Z ?) Johnson 10 MS.
In 1870 they are living in what is called the Souenlovie community just out of Enterprise proper (I can't find my record of what road). This was property owned by the Johnson's, and not far from Annie's sister, Sarah J. & J. W. Smiley's property.
On the 1870 Clark Co., MS "Clark Co. Tax Assessment on Land" notices is the following listing: Mrs. S. A. (Sophrona Ann) Johnson; 40 acres of land (SW 1/4 of NE 1/4 of Section 27, Township 3, Range 14); Value per acre $1.25; Total Value of lands now taxabel = $480.00.
There is an old old cemetery in the Souenlovie community with graves marked by old old fieldstones, for the most part grown over with large pines. I feel sure this is where William & Mary are buried and possibly Annie also. There is a newer cemetary about 100 yds east of this one on same side of road just behind the Souenlovie Church; but there are no Haden or Johnson graves in it. We have checked out numerous cemetaries is the area, but have found none marked with Haden or Johnson. The Souenlovie Church is on property once owned by the Johnsons and given for the building of the church.
