Jane or Jenny Haden, daughter of Anthony and Druscilla, died in 1836 in Johnson County MO.She was living with her daughter Mary (aka Polly) Gilbert Oglesby, and is presumably buried in the Oglesby family farm cemetery. Our source is online:“History of Johnson County, Missouri.”

[Year of birth was given as 1728, but his father's was given as 1727. Other children in family born 1750s. 1758 is a guess.]
