Second Generation

9. Zachariah HADEN9,41,42,43,44 was born before 1738. He died in 1792 at the age of 54 in Goochland County, Virginia.45

Zachariah is said to have been born 1733. I doubt this given his marriage in 1763. I believe he was the youngest son, probably not born until later - but he was surely born before 1738 since he purchased land in Rowan Co in 1759 and would have had to be 21 at that time.

There is in the Rowan County, NC Deed Abstracts [Rowan DB 10 :181] Zachariah Haden of Goochland County, VA.

Zachariah HADEN and Elizabeth POOR were married on 27 January 1763 in Goochland County, Virginia.37,45,46 Elizabeth POOR, daughter of Thomas POOR and Elizabeth MOSELEY, was born in 1742 in Goochland County, Virginia.1,3 She died about 1809 at the age of 67 in Goochland County, Virginia.1

Elizabeth was the daughter of Thomas Poor. Marriage bond dated 27 Jan 1763. Surety for her marriage was Obadiah Daniel (brother-in-law to be). Wit: Milley Poor and Ann Poor. Joseph Haden makes affadavit that Zachariah is "21 years of age or upwards". The fact that Zachariah's brother certified his age is another indication that by 1763 their father was deceased. Douglas Register says: "both of this parish"

Elizabeth Haden was named as one of the children and distributees of the final settlement of Thomas Poor, 1798.

There were two districts - Hadens were always in the same one - primarily Robert, his widowed mother Elizabeth, his brother Jesse, and John N. Haden, Robert's 1st cousin, once removed - son of Joseph Haden & Mary Peatross who had moved back to Goochland from Fluvanna in the 1790's

Zachariah HADEN and Elizabeth POOR had the following children:



Robert D. HADEN.



Thomas Poore HADEN was christened on 16 June 1767 in Goochland County, Virginia.39,42

[One reference compiled by Henry Moore, states that Thomas died before 1783. This makes much more sense than the information from Irene Cook that he died in Lowndes Co MS] Thomas apparently died prior to the time his father wrote his will, as he is not mentioned.
His mother and brothers Jesse and Robert are on an 1802 tax list for Goochland Co.



Susannah HADEN.



James HADEN was born on 6 January 1771 in Goochland County, Virginia.1,39 He was christened on 10 April 1771 in St. James Northam Parish, Goochland County, Virginia.47

Douglas wrote down "Antony Haden & Eliz: Pore a son named James born Jan: 6 1771. Baptized Ap: 10 1771." [I believe this to be a "clerical" error and James WAS the son of Zachariah & Elizabeth Poor. Reasoning: All of the other children of Zachariah & Elizabeth were baptized at St. James and he fits very nicely in the birth order. Anthony & Drucilla had only two children baptized at St. James and one of those, John, was born barely a year after James - close for even that time.]
The child James is not named in Zachariah's will, dated 14 Jan 1782. And, Anthony II also had a son named James, James Carter Haden, child of his second wife, who did live to adulthood.
