Marriage to Elizabeth Bradshaw:

Marriage to Elizabeth E. Owen: Bond: H. R. Bradshaw

James and his third wife signed a marriage contract which allowed Eliza Holmes to retain custody of her property.

James Wilson Haden had children by both of the first two marriages.

#1888288 Loose Paper Estate Files - Davidson Co
James W. Haden 1897 p.966

Inventory filed by S. H. Clement, Admr. on 11 Oct 1897.
Report of sale. Many items marked as sold to "laborers from store". Others marked as sold direct to distributees who were R. J. Haden, Mrs. W. M. Barber, Mrs. C. H. Holmes, Lula Haden, Beulah Haden, Mrs. P. H. Thompson. Filed 20 May 1898.
Report to Eliza A. Haden, widow. Year's allowance of $300; dated 21 May 1898.

A second file was labeled J. W. Haden, died 1899, but it was obviously also James' s records. Since one of the papers was dated 1897, I'm not sure why they were not all filed together.

Lewis H. Clement, admin of James W. Haden dec'd - was requested to serve by the widow on 25 Jun 1897

Additional payments on 4 Apr 1899 to all of the above.

I also found mis-filed in the file of James M. Haden, who died 1898, one of the Hadens born in Virginia and not part of the North Carolina Hadens, a guardianship record. R. J. Holmes, was appointed guardian of Beulah Haden and Robert J. Haden on 30 Jun 1898. Charles H. Holmes, husband of Minnie, had both a brother and father named Reuben J. Holmes - the father was still living at this time, but in his seventies - no doubt the guardian was the brother, an uncle of the children by marriage.

In the estate records of Rowan Co NC, LDS microfilm #1498464, I found a file on James W. Haden, died 1897, p. 300

There was a law suit: Minnie Homes & Chas. H. Holmes her husband, Lula O. Haden, Beulah E. Haden and Robert J. Haden, the last two by their next friend R. J. Holmes vs. Ida H. Barber and M. W. Barber her husband and Alice B. Thompson and P. H. Thompson, her husband. The outcome was that commissioners were ordered to divided the lands of the estate of James W. Haden in six equal shares to allot to the heirs as listed. Dated 30 Oct 1897. The land was divided except for the widow's dower. There are plat maps of each share in the file.

Markers mentioned in the property descriptions: banks of the Yadkin River, M. W. Barber's corner, Bell's line, the dower line, Fitzgerald's corner, J. B. Young's line, the Public road, J. B. Fitzgerald's, McConnaughey tract, Joseph Carrick's and Annie Holmes' corner, waters of Second Creek. One tract had been conveyed by R. J. Holmes & E. A. Holmes, as admin. of M. L. Holmes to J. W. Haden by deed 6 Feb 1895, DB 78, p.253, 479 acres. Other markers: Foster's branch, Laura Hairston's corner, Robert's corner, B. F. Haden's line.
Sale dated 7 Jan 1898.
M. L. Holmes was Moses L. Holmes, uncle of Charles, R. H. and E. A. Holmes [probably Eliza A.] Moses had previously been married to Eliza A. Spoon who married James W. Haden as his third wife after the death of Moses Holmes.

James Wilson HADEN and Elizabeth J. BRADSHAW were married on 17 September 1851 in Rowan County, North Carolina.1,156,391 Elizabeth J. BRADSHAW411, daughter of Robert BRADSHAW and Sarah MCCRARY, was born on 10 August 1830 in North Carolina.671 She died on 19 November 1858 at the age of 28 in Davidson County, North Carolina.671

Elizabeth as daughter of Robert Bradshaw & Elizabeth Haden is information received from Jeanne Bond of Tampa. This can't be correct - that's another Elizabeth and a different Robert. Age is 50 years off. The relationship as a daughter of Sarah McCrary and Robert Bradshaw is proved by the estate settlement of Sarah's sister, Mary McCrary Haden, widow of William H. Haden, the younger.

I believe this is probably her grave marker at Jersey Baptist Church, Lexington, Davidson Co NC. James, her husband, his second wife [another Elizabeth] and some of his young children are in this cemetery.
Bettie E. Haden.

Robert was 18 in the 1870, but doesn't appear again. He apparently died because James named another son named Robert, born 1879.

22 Nov 1901 Ordered to sell property

Her will provided $800 each to Irvin Wyche, Holmes Arendell & Banks Arendell, to complete their education at Trinity Colleg, Durham N.C. Money placed in 1st Natl Bank of Salisbury NC
Will dated 22 Nov 1901, rec. WB 3, p.171
I'm sure her will contains much more information; she seemed to be quite wealthy.

Banks Arendell, while still a minor, guardian F. B. Arendell, asked that his funds be moved to Raleigh where he lived. F. B. was probably his father.

Money paid to legaties: Mary E. Wyche, Bessie E. Arendell, Crissy M. Carnes [only $500 while others got thousands] 1st Natl bank for Burial Lot, 1st Methodist Church [$1500] & $2400 for Educational purposes. W. F. Miller, Extr of Wm G. Miller got $1000.
