1643. Robert Allen HADEN419,930,1123 was born on 13 August 1865 in Keatchie, Caddo Parish, Louisiana.419 He died on 17 February 1917 at the age of 51 in Ionian Sea.419

Married 1) Julia McGinnis; one son, Julian; 2) Eugenie Clara Hilbold. This is the great-grandfather of Rebecca Haden who sent the information. Robert and Eugenie were missionaries to China. He was lost on French Ship Athos.

I discovered a great deal more about the family from their passport applications online at, 1795-1925.

Robert's first passpost in these records was an Emergency Passport Issued Abroad, dated 16 Mar 1892. He applied to the Legation of the U.S. in Peking China the previous date,on March 15th. He stated he was born Keachie, DeSoto Parish in Louisiana on 13 Aug 1865. His father was a native born citizen of the U.S. He considered his permanent domicile in the U.S. as being Keatchie. He was a Minister. He left the U.S. on 26 Sept 1891 and was temporarily sojourning at Waseih, China. He desire the passport for his missionary work. He was then 26 years old, 6 feet tall, blue eyes, dark brown hair. All evidence indicates he was a single man at this time.

On 30 April 1908, Robert Allen Haden again applied for a passport for himself and his wife, Clara E. [Eugenie] and his minor children: Frieda E. born at Kiangyin, China on 2 May 1898; Eric George, born at Kuling, China on 14 Aug 1899; Dorothy J. born Shrevesport, LA on 21 Apr 1901, and Ernest Faber born Mokaushen China on 21 Aug 1904. I stated his birth at Keatchie, LA on 13 Aug 1865 and gave his permanent residence as Shrevesport [sic]. He was a clergyman and had left the U.S. on 26 Sept 1891 and was presently living at Kiangyin, China. He intended to return to the U.S. within two years and wanted the passport for travel in connection with his Missionary work. He was at that time age 43 and in the description it was noted that his hair was dark, slightly gray. The passport application was made at the American Consulate at Shanghai, China.
[Note: This application did not include his son Julian, born by his first wife - Julian was included two years later.]

Another application for passport was made in Berne, Switzerland on 8 Aug 1910. R. A. Haden applied for himself, his wife Eugenie Clara and his minor children: Julian C., born at Shanghai on 24 Jul 1894. Frieda E. born Kiangyin 2 May 1898; Eric G. born Kuling, China, 21 Aug 1899; Dorothy J. born Shreveport, LA, 21 Apr 1901; Ernest Faber born Mohkanshan, China, 14 Aug 1904; and Robert A. born Kiangyin, China, on 2 Jun 1906. Robert himself born Keatchie LA on 13 Aug 1865. Permanent residence again listed as Shreveport; occupation was missionary in China. He temporarily residing in Neuchatel, Switzerland and intended to the return to the U.S. within one year. He wanted the passport for the purpose of proving his nationality. Description states that his hair is now "iron grey".

Eugenie's applications for passport following his death tells the rest of the story.
On 7 Sept 1917, Eugenie stated that she was a missionary to China prior to her marriage in Shanghai, Jan 1897. Her husband had also been a missionary. They were working in China until 1900 when then had a year furlough in the U.S. which is the only time she ever lived there. They returned to China in 1901. In 1910 they had another furlough, coming first to Switzerland for seven months. They wanted the children to have a European education so they went to Germany for the next 18 months. She then returned to Switzerland with the children and her husband went back to China. He remained there until February of 1917 - he was returning to his family when he was lost off the coast of Malta, his ship being torpedoed by a submarine. The ship was the "Athos" en route from China to Marseilles.

I found copies of articles from The New York Times online. The French steamer Athos was carrying Senagalese troops and colonial laborers and was torpedoed in the Mediterrianean Sea. She was being escorted by two French destroyers which, with the aid of a gunboat, rescued some 1450 passengers. An Article on Feb 23th, stating that the ship was sunk on the 17th, stated that Haden had gone to the aid of Chinese on board or he would probably have been rescued. The Athos was struck 210 miles east of Malta. Another article in the Times but from Nashville, was in the nature of an obit. It was also dated Feb 23rd.
"Robert Allen Haden, the Presbyterian missionary who was lost when the French line Athos was destroyed by a submarine, had a number of friends here and in Clarksville, where he graduated from the Southwestern Presbyterian University. At the time of his death Mr. Haden was sailing from Yokohama for Marseilles to join his wife and six children who are in Switzerland.
Dr. Haden was 53 years of age and was born in Keatchie, La. He spent tow years in Clarksville Preparatory School before entering the university, graduating in 1891. After graduating he entered the ministry under the Presbyterian Mission Board. He was first stationed at Wushi, China, but was transferred in 1895 to Kiang Yin. In 1908 he was again transferred, this time to Soochow.
About a year after he went to China, Miss Julia McGinnis of Clarksville also left for that country as a missionary. They met in Japan and were married. Then they worked together in China for a year when she died, leaving one son, Julian, who now resides in the United States. Later Mr. Haden again married, this time to a woman in the English mission in China, and of this union six children were born. Mrs. Haden is now in Switzerland with her children Albert [this was actually Frieda], Eric, Dorothy, Joseph, Ernest, and Allan.
Mr. Haden was last in the United States in 1911. He was engaged in missionary work in Soochow, and was the only male missionary in that district.
Mr. Haden was known here to be connected with the work of the Southern Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions in the parish of China. His headquarters, according to the Year Book of the organization was at Soochow, about fifty miles from Shanghai, a mission established in 1877. Fifteen Americans are located there in charge of the work. The property of the mission is extensive, consisting of hospitals, schools for girls, and building for other missionary purposes.
The French steamer Athos, according to the New York Maritime Register was last reported as arriving at Kobe, Japan, on Jan 17 form Marseilles, France. The Athose was a steel twin screw steamer, built in 1914 at Dunkirk, France. She was 508 feet long and owned by the Messageries Maritimes of Marseilles."

A long article appeared on page 1 of the Ft. Worth Star Telegram on 4 Feb 1917. Two of Robert Allen Haden's brothers and a nephew were residents of Ft. Worth and he himself had visited the city five years earlier, speaking at both the 1st Presbyterian and Broadway Presbyterian Churches. His kin in Ft. Worth: C. H. Haden, brother, 1132 Edward St; J. C. Haden, brother, 1021 Elizabeth St; Robert A. Haden, nephew, 1300 Stella St.
Five of Hadens children were being educated in Switzerland; the eldest Freda, to graduate at Easter. A son Julian was in Massachusetts - he was born to the first wife. A letter written to C. H. Haden on Nov 14, said he wanted to avoid the North sea on account of the submarines; he intended to sail from Hong Kong on a French ship - he also wanted to avoid Russia, so made the trip by sea.
Haden had spent 26 years in the Soo Chow distract. His last act was to sacrifice his life to some Chinese. His brother explained that they were probably his Chinese servants.
Haden was born at Keatchie, LA; graduated from the Southwestern Presbyterian University at Clarksville TN in 1891. He served a pastorate in Shreveport before going to China.

By 1930, Julian, Eric, Ernest & Allen [Robert Jr.] are all found living in the U.S. About 1920, Eugenie was living with her married daughter Elizabeth in Barcelona Spain. Then in 1923 Eugenie was in Geneva, Switzerland with young Robert who was in school. In 1930, Eugenie was living in Memphis with Joseph. In 1920, Dorothy was in Birmingham with her husband Allen C. Howard, but I didn't find them in 1930.

Robert Allen HADEN and Julia MCGINNIS were married.419 Julia MCGINNIS died about 1895 in China.

By Jan of 1897, Robert Allen Haden had married Eugenie in Shanghai. The boy Julian did not appear on his father's passport application in 1908, but he was with the rest of his father's family in 1910. When Robert Allen was killed in 1917, a newspaper article stated that Julian was living in the United States.

Robert Allen HADEN and Julia MCGINNIS had the following children:



Julian HADEN419,930 was born on 24 July 1894 in Shanghai, China.

In 1908, Julian was not listed on his father's application for passport along with the rest of the family. He was listed in 1910. By 1917, when his father was killed, Julian was living back in the United States.

Robert Allen HADEN and Eugenie Clara HILTBOLT were married in January 1897 in Shanghai, China.419 Eugenie Clara HILTBOLT930 was born on 24 January 1869 in Wasselone, Alsace, France.419

Several passport applications were made by Eugenie after the death of Robert. In 1908 and 1910, she was included on his applications as his wife.

7 Sep 1917, Eugenie was living with her children in Neuchatel, Switzerland. She had moved there on 17 Sep 1913. She stated she was born at Wasselone, in Alsace, France on 24 Jan 1869, and her husband, Robert Allen Haden born in Keatchie, LA, was deceased. She was living in Switzerland for the purpose of educating her children. She had lived in the U.S. for only one year - in 1901 [the Hadens were on furlough at that time] She wanted a passport for her residence in Switzerland and to visit France for YMCA work. Eugenie was then 48 years old, 5' 6" tall, hazel eyes and gray hair. She was also appling for her minor children, Robert born Kiangyin, China on 2 Jun 1908, and Joseph, born Liebenziel, Germany, 6 Jul 1911.
Identifying documents included the registration certificate of her husband issued 12 May 1908 at Shanghai, China, Her registration certificate issued at Berne, Switzerland, 6 Aug 1917. Her marriage certificate seen at Consulate when forwarding papers to the U.S. for settlement of her husband's estate. Permission of domicile issued at Neuchatel, Switzerland on 9 Feb 1917. Certificate of missionary appointed issued by the Executive Committee of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church, headquarters at Nashville, TN.
Applican'ts husband was the victim of a submarine disaster on the steamship Athos en route from China to Marseilles in 1917. She hopes to return to China as soon as she receives orders from the Missionary Board.
Eugine's affidavit stated that she had left the U. S. in 1901; had resided in China until 1910, then Germany for 18 months, and then Switzerland, since 17 Sep 1913. She was a missionary to China before her marriage in Shanghai in Jan of 1897... They had a year's furlough 1900-1901 which is the only time she has ever been in the United States. In 1910, they first came to Switzerland for seven months, then going to Germany for 18 months. She returned to Switzerland for the children's education; her husband returned to his work in China.
Her husband's brother lives in the States and there is a stepson there. Her nearest relative is a sister living in Switzerland. She has cousins in Germany, but no communication with them. She receives an insufficient income through the Executive Committee of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church in Nashville, TN. She does not know ever expect to establish a residence in the U.S. She hopes to return to China.

Application dated 19 Jul 1918. Joseph was listed as the only minor child. She listed her domicile as Lyons, France, where the application was made to the American consulate. She listed residences as Soochow, China from Oct 1901 until Apr of 1910; Wasselonne, Germany from Apr 1910 to Aug of 1912 [Alsace belonged at different times to Germany or France]; Lausanne & Neuchatel, Switzerland from Aug 1912 to Mar of 1918. She is seeking temporary residence in France.
Eugenie could not be identified in Lyons by a native or naturalized citizen of the U.S. She did give as references Rev. S. H. Chester in Nashville and Mr. Joseph R. Wilson of US Fidelity & Guaranty Co in Baltimore. she had her passport from Bern, enabling her to travel in France.
She stated furth in her affidavit that she had resided in Lyons since 23 Mar 1918 to enter YMCA work. She had been assigned to work among the Chinese but was forced to give it up because the Director had decided the work should be performed by a man because of the rough character of the men with whom she was brought in contact. She had not been to the U.S. for a visit since residing in Europe. She had no family ties in the U.S. other than a brother-in-law Charles Haden, believed to be residing in Ft Worth, TX. She was unable to say when she might return to the U.S. as she was would work wherever her missionary work was needed.

On 13 Feb 1920, Eugenie again applied to the consulate at Marseille, France. Joseph was again listed as her minor child. She gave her legal domicile in the U.S. as Birmingham, Alabama. She had been at Marsielle since Nov 10, 1919 for welfare work on behalf of the Methodist Committee of War Relief and Reconstruction in France. She stated her residences as Alsace from 1869 to 1889; England from 1889 to 1891; China from 1891 to 1900; U.S. 1900-1901; China 1901-1910; German and Switzerland 1910-1918; France 1918- to the present. She gave as references her stepson, Julian Haden, of Hartford, CT and her sister [actually her daughter Dorothy] , Mrs. Allen C. Howard of Birmingham, AL.
Again there was an accompanying affadavit which repeated most of the previous information. She did say Liebensell was in Wurtemburg, Germany. In 1910 when they had come to Switzerland she was not in good health, nor was she in good health when they lived in Germany. In 1912, they went first to Lausanne, Switzerland for a year, then on to Neuchatell, for the education of her children. She stated that she would probably return to the U.S. in company with her daughter Elizabeth, who was employed at Marseille by the YMCA. My eldest boy, Ernest Haden, is being educated in France.

Another application is dated 6 Aug 1921 and made to the American Consulate in Barcelona, Spain. This time she gives a permanent residence in the U.S. as Nashville. She arrived in Barcelona on 13 Aug 1920 where she working as a welfare worker on behalf of the Executive Committee of Foreign Missions, Presbyterian Church. She again states here residences saying that she lived in France from Mar of 1918 until Aug of 1920. She will perhpas return to the U.S. in two years. She is seeking temporary residence and travel to France and Switzerland.
In the affadavit, Euginie said she had two sons and a married daughter in the States. Mrs. Allen Howard living at Demopolis AL. Eric G. Haden, YMCA ato Toledo, Ohio. Another son, a minor. She was staying at Barcelona with a married daughter [would have to be Frieda Elizabeth]. She has a case pending with the State Dept regarding indemnity from Germany for the death of her husband at which time she intends to return to the U.S. She may also teach a year at least in the American school in Barcelona.

The final application in this database is dated 12 Jun 1923 in Barcelona. Eugine lists her minor son Joseph again. She is desiring the passport for temporary residence in Spain and travel in France and Switzerland. Eugenie was now age 54.
The accompanying affadavit - the affadavits are to explain her protracted foreign residence and to overcome presumption of expatriation - stated the usual infomration. The application is virtually identical to the one of 1921 - she is apparently still waiting for the case pending concerning her deceased husband. She gave the same information concerning the three children in the U.S. and is staying with her married daughter in Barcelona.
