Second Generation

7. Joseph HADEN1,30,31,32,33,34,35 was born about 1735 in Virginia.1 He died in February 1803 at the age of 68 in Rowan County, North Carolina.33

The birth year of Joseph is given in "John Haden of Virginia" and also by Irene Cook as 1740-42. However, a deed dated 19 Jan 1756 from Anthony to his son Joseph for 200 acres of land would seem to me to indicate Joseph had come of age or was about to be married in 1756. If he was then age 21, he would have been born by 1735. This helps some with the confusion about the age of his children and his possible marriages.

The Ancestral File gives an earlier marriage of Joseph to Mary Tulley, but I have found absolutely no evidence of this marriage. This marriage is also found in the Hayden Quarterly with Mary Tulley born in 1749, married abt 1756 (age 7) and died 1820 which is completely out of line with other known facts.)

I have seen Feb 3 1764 as date of marriage to Elizabeth Hundley, but that is the birth of daughter Elizabeth as recorded in The Douglas Register.. There is an Ambrose Hundley mentioned in connection with William Rea - the man I believe was married to Joseph's sister Elizabeth. Hundley was from Hanover Co which has few extant records and I've not been able to find additional information about him. Elizabeth and Joseph were most likely married about the time of the following deed from Anthony to his son Joseph.

DB 4, p.47 26 Feb 1768. Moses Lowry to William Clark, 100 acres on Lewisis Creek adjacent Joseph Haden, Thos. Bayley & Jno Payne being land Moses Lowrey bought of Thomas Bailey.

From Irene Cook and other assorted Haden researchers: Joseph Haden and Richmond Pearson (a possible son-in-law) were witnesses for marriage of Joseph Haden, Jr. and Jane Haden in 1783 in North Carolina. According to her reasoning, Richmond, if a son-in-law, would have married a daughter of Joseph and an unknown spouse before Elizabeth Hundley. A Sarah Haden married 5 Nov 1772, Albemarle Co VA, Richard Pearson. Sarah, nor any the children of Sarah & Richmond Pearson are mentioned in the will of Joseph Haden.

My own research indicates that Joseph was older than given by the above researchers - he was born by 1735 in order to receive a gift of land from his father in 1756. He may certainly have married Elizabeth Hundley earlier than has been estimated. The girl Sarah, if age 16 at her marriage, was likely born about 1756 - about the same time Anthony gave land to Joseph, so it then becomes possible for Sarah to be his daughter and a daughter of Elizabeth Hundley. Sarah was deceased by the time Joseph wrote his will and Richmond Pearson remarried - Pearson was a very wealthy man and none of his children would have necessarily needed a bequest from their Haden grandfather and they are not mentioned.

This record found in the Louisa Co VA court orders. Likely this Joseph as the younger Joseph Hadens were not really old enough to be involved in a suit.

Wit: Richmond Pearson, Anney Haden, Sarah (x) Pearson. Proved Nov Court 1777.
The location on the South side of the Yadkin, the fish dam, the forks of the Yadkin will be mentioned many times in deeds of Joseph and his brother William, their sons and associates. I believe the witness Anney Haden to have been Joseph's daughter who married Wyatt. Sarah, likely also Joseph's daughter, wife of Richmond Pearson.

Some research papers indicated that Joseph & Margaret Haden also had sons named Benjamin & Thomas, named in her father's will in 1800 but not named in Joseph's in 1802. This is an error. Thomas Maxwell's will does name his daughter Margaret married to Joseph Haden. He named no grandchildren nor children of Margaret at all. Thomas Maxwell did have sons named Benjamin & Thomas Maxwell. [Rowan Co NC Will Book D, p.202]

Joseph's will of 1802 fails to mention any Sarah, or her children, that might have been married to Richmond Pearson. There is also no mention of the daughter Elizabeth whose birth and baptism in 1764, were recorded by the Rev. Douglas back in Goochland Co. Some indicate Elizabeth was the same as the Ann Wyatt named in Joseph's will but an Ann, or Nancy, Haden is believed to have married Francis Wayatt in the mid 1770's when Elizabeth would have been too young to marry. Francis Wyatt is also seen as married to both an Ann and Elizabeth Haden and also to Fanny Austin in 1799 in Caroline Co when he should have still been married to Ann, since the will was written in 1802. I have not found any Wyatt research that seems anything but confused. The names of the children of Nancy and Francis Wyatt include common Haden given names - one son named Haden Wyatt. I believe Nancy was the only Haden wife of Francis Wyatt and that Elizabeth Haden, born in 1764, died young.

Joseph's widow remarried after his death:
Sent from John Barnes as found in the McCubbin manscript collection at Raleigh:
"May 3, 1803: letters granted John Steele and Margaret Haden on the estate of Joseph Haden Sr.,... Steele did not qualify."
"Marriage bond: Margaret Haden to William Brown Aug. 15, 1804 signed by Daniel Cress." [Heretofore this marriage has been assigned to the daughter of Joseph Haden & Margaret Maxwell, but it was the widow, Margaret Maxwell Haden who married William Brown as the following note reveals.]
"Oct. 2, 1806. Richmond Pearson vs. Margaret Brown (executor of deceased Joseph Haden) case #_____ went up to Supreme Court"
[The question here is .....why would Pearson be suing Joseph's widow unless he was attempting to gain something in right of children who might have been grandchildren of Joseph's ....or was he serving as guardian of some of Joseph's younger children?]

There was another lawsuit involving two of the sons of Joseph that gives interesting information about family relationships, the marriage date of Joseph & Jenny Haden, death date for Joseph and approximate birth date for son Robert Gillespie:
"Salisbury Dist Court p. 240: Joseph Haden vs. Robert Gillespie Haden before Judge Spruce Macay Apr. 11, 1807. The complainant says he is the son of Joseph Haden and in addressing Jenny (dau. of William Haden) whom he later married on Jan. 9, 1783, his father and her father agreed to advance their interests. Her father (William Haden) gave them some slaves at marriage (Bet, Sid, and Isaac) while his father (Joseph Haden) was to give them 100 A, being the upper part of the half where he lived on the main Yadkin by the fence of his main plantation, called the point tract, where the South and Main Yadkin come together, (and the remainder of it after he died). He did give him the first part immediately after the marriage, but took it back in 1783 having become offended with some of the tenants, he said, offering to pay $800 for it, in 1794, said complainant refused. Said father, Joseph Haden died in Feb. 1803, leaving a will devising both the upper and lower parts to Robert Gillespie Haden (the defendant) then about 18 years, for whom Obadiah Smith was appointed guardian and neither are willing to make the deed. The def. Robert Gillespie Haden says the land was not given and the complainant was only an overseer on the plantation. The decree says that Robert Gillespie Haden must make a deed in fee simple of the 200 A on the south side of the Main Yadkin at the fish dam and up both Main and South Yadkin Rivers, to said complainant and both parties pay the costs."

Both signed deed. Wit: Maxwell Chambers, who prvd at Feb Ct 1808

In the Estate files in Rowan Co NC, LDS Microfilm #1498464, there is a file called "Joseph Haden, 1804" Most of the papers in the file are in fact those of Joseph Jr. who died in 1820. Joseph Jr. also has an estate file in Davidson Co - because of his very young children, it took many years to settle his estate and the newer county had been formed. The only paper in the "Joseph Haden, 1804" file that actually refers to this Joseph is the guardianship bond Of Obediah Smith for Robt. G. Haden, orphan of Jos. Haden dated 7 Feb 1804. Bond was 2000 pounds; Jacob Fisher was his security.
I believe there were two successive Jacob Fishers that were associated with the Haden families - some of the earliest documents show Fisher signing in German but this Jacob on the bond signed as"Ja. Fisher".

Joseph HADEN and Elizabeth HUNDLEY were married about 1758 in Goochland County, Virginia.1,36,37 Elizabeth HUNDLEY was born about 1740.1 She died after 1777 at the age of 37.1,38

I believe that Elizabeth's birth year is approximate and was set based on a birth year for Joseph Haden that was faulty - she could have been a few years older, particularly if she was the first wife of Joseph. They may have been married around the time his father gave him 200 acres in Goochland Co, January of 1756.

Have also seen Elizabeth's name as Hendley; Irene Cook goes with Hundley Douglas has "Handley". The date of marriage is 175?. Have seen Feb 3 1764 as date of marriage but that is birth of their daughter Elizabeth and there were several children that appear to have been older than Elizabeth.

An Ambrose Hundley of Hanover Co is mentioned in records of William Rea, who I believe to have been married to Joseph Haden's sister Elizabeth. And of course Joseph's father moved to Hanover Co late in life - there were other Hadens living in Hanover. The problem is the loss of records from that county.
Hanover Co Court Record Book 1733-1735; Charles P. Blunt IV

Ack & Anne, wife of Chiles relinq dower 2 Oct 1735

The Vestry book of St. Paul's Parish in Hanover Co also has references to the Hundley and Rea families that indicate they must have been living quite close together. The procession ordered 1 Sep 1739, was to be carried out by John Jones and John Rea. They did so and reported their work mentioning the lands of John Rea, Ambrose Hundley, and William Rea, among those lands processioned. Four years later, 18 Nov 1743, the following were among those ordered into the same precinct for processioning: Ambrose Hundly, John Rea, Ambrose Hundly, Junr.

Her death was given in the Cook papers as 1772 in NC. However, she was still living and in Albemarle Co VA in 1777:
VALENTINE PAPERS; Albemarle Co records:
DB 6, p.531 Mar 1777 Joseph Haden & Elizabeth his wife of Albemarle Co to Matthew Jordan of Goochland for £17. 270 acres on branch of Great Byrd called Bailey's Creek.

Joseph HADEN and Elizabeth HUNDLEY had the following children:



Sarah HADEN.



Ann "Nancy" HADEN.



Ritta HADEN was born about 1763.1

(Probably born sometime between Joseph and Judah, between 1765 and 1772)
She is named in her father's will, apparently unmarried in 1802. Nothing else is known about her.



Elizabeth HADEN was born on 3 February 1764.10,39

Irene Cook gave "Elizabeth" as born about 1769. I think it likely there was a daughter Ann and a daughter Elizabeth and both were born prior to this date.

Douglas Register, Goochland Co VA: "Joseph Haden & Elizabeth Handley, a Daughter named Elizabeth born Feb 3, 1764. Baptized Apr 22 1764
The marriage of Joseph and Elizabeth is also given as an "implied marriage" taken from the Register - using the above child's birth. There is no actual date known for the marriage of Joseph & Elizabeth but this date has been used.

I believe Elizabeth died as a child.

An Anney Haden witnessed a deed of Joseph Haden's in November of 1777. A person had to be age 14 to witness, or born before 1763. Ann Wyatt is named as a daughter in the Will of Joseph Haden in 1802 and there is no Elizabeth. There was no record in Goochland of births of Joseph's children except for Elizabeth and Judith. There is no Elizabeth named in the will. I suspect they are two different daughters that have been forced to "fit" and Ann was older, closer in age to Sarah who married Richmond Pearson. Elizabeth is seen as married to Francis Wyatt, but I believe that was Ann instead.

Some Wyatt researchers have suggested that Francis married both a Nancy/Ann Haden and an Elizabeth Haden. But they have also picked up a marriage of a Francis Wyatt to a Fanny Austin in Caroline Co in 1799 and that is an entirely different man.

Joseph HADEN and Margaret MAXWELL were married after 1777 in Rowan County, North Carolina. Margaret MAXWELL, daughter of Thomas MAXWELL, was born about 1745.1
