Third Generation

10. Anthony HADEN1,3,44,48,49,50,51,52,53 was born on 26 March 1746 in Goochland County, Virginia.3 He served in the military in 1777–1781 at Fluvanna Militia, VA in Revolutionary War.1 He died on 28 April 1828 at the age of 82 in Christian County, Kentucky.3

There is on, the SAR applications ...The application of Matthew H. Crawford, #38585 is for Capt Anthony Haden/Hayden, submitted in 1924. The only problem is that it is based on this Anthony's grandfather who was already deceased by the time of the Revolution. I don't know that SAR has ever corrected this error, because I believe others have joined on this line. Since Mathew H. Crawford was also a descendant of this Anthony, who indeed served as a Captain in the Revolution, I suppose it is a moot point since he was a descendant of a Revolutionary soldier. He also cited the service of an Anthony Haden from Hanover Co - he was an Anthony D. Haden who later lived in Pittsylvania Co, VA and whose relationship to this family has not been proved. So this application confuses two Anthony Hadens of two different generations AND two unrelated Anthony Hadens who served from two different places in Virginia.

This family was in Goochland County and then Albemarle County (which became Fluvanna County) and then Campbell County. Late in life Anthony moved to Christian County, KY. Anthony had a total of eleven children by the three wives.

Note: A lawsuit was brought in Louisa Co by Lund Hopkins of Powhatan Co against Robert Yancey, Deputy Sheriff, and Richard Faris, who had bought his mother's dower land went to the Supreme Court of Appeals in Virginia and was heard on 18 Oct 1810. Lund Hopkins' mother remarried, had her dower laid off, sold it, and moved away by 1785. She and her second husband, Samuel Beaver, sold the dower land to Richard Faris. The entire tract was on the tax rolls in her name and the Deputy Sheriff purchased 200 acres of it for back taxes [about 40£]. Yancey later sold it to Faris for about the same amount. Anthony Haden was supposedly notified, as the administrator of the estate of Joseph Hopkins soon after the sale but he had no assets of the estate. There was personal property on the land that could have been sold for the back taxes. The Court of Chancery had decided the sale void and decreed title be returned to Lund. That decision was upheld.

July 1853, Elkton KY Cover Letter by Wm. H. Wells.
Anthony Haden, never applied for his pension, being able to live without it.

17 Sep 1853 Pension Office Letter to William H. Wells.
I have examined the papers transmitted for the service of Anthony Haden under the Act 7 Jun 1832. There is no law under which grandchildren are entitled to a pension but may be payable to a child or children.

20 May 1930 Letter from E. W. Morgan, Acting Commissioner, to Honorable William L. Nelson, House of Representatives, Washington DC
Response to his letter of 15 May 1930. [Gives the dates and relationships as outlined in the testimony] "The application of Joel H. Haden was not mentioned, as the only form of rejection in the claim stated that grandchildren were not entitled, only a child or children, & Joel made no further effort to claim pension & as neither the soldier or his wife ever applied, the real rejection should have been on that bases, so there seems to be no other way to handle it at this late date."

26 Jan 1935. Letter from Miss Emma DeJarnette, Richmond KY

Which Anthony Haden lived in Botetourt? The date and location would seem to preclude this Anthony - was this the Anthony who appears in Arkansas Territory 1805 or the Anthony D. Haden who was in Charlotte Co in 1790 and in Pittsylvania Co by 1807?
Fincastle Weekly Advertiser, 26 Jun 1801
NOTICE. All those in arrears of Land Tax for the year 1783, in the County of Botetourt, or as the county then was, are requested to hold themselves in readiness to make immediate payment on application, as no indulgence can be given, in consequence of the bounds being so very large; if indulgence is given it will be out of my power to make my collection in time, and if I do not the consequences will be serious.

Anthony HADEN and Anna HARRIS were married on 21 December 1787 in Albemarle County, Virginia.3,11 Anna HARRIS, daughter of James HARRIS and Mary HARRIS, was born on 28 December 1748.3,55,56,57 She was born in 1756. She died on 24 December 1824 at the age of 68 in Christian County, Kentucky.3

[The Harris home page gives Anna's year of birth as 1756, from a bible record which is more reasonble for her age, but this won't work with the marriage to William Dabney in 1766! Moreover, if the Bible record is correct she was born several years before her parents married. Definitely a problem here. Given the birth of the daughter, I suspect the marriage date is wrong. Maybe all the dates are.]
