5 Sep 1793 Robert Brown & Mary his wife to John Haden Jr of Campbell Co about 214 acres on Seneca Creek, bounded by David Terrell Sr on said Creek, Phelps old road to Anthony Haden, John Condry, John Dabney, to the beginning. Being land Thomas Luster now lives on, former property of Benjamin Gilbert and & George Vest. Signed: Robert Brown, Mary (x) Brown. Rec. 5 Sep 1793
John's grandfather of the same name had moved to Campbell Co about 1784, that would explain the use of the "Jr" after this John's name. The Browns and Vests are also mentioned in deeds of Anthony Haden, John's father. Benjamin Gilbert was a brother to Charles Gilbert that had married John's older sister Jenny Haden.

The family went to Madison County KY, before going on to Ralls County MO. Daughter Amelia married in 1817 while they were in Madison County. John served as Bondsman for the marriage of Elizabeth Duncan, daughter of Edward Duncan, to John Wood. Bond dated 28 Nov 1809; Returned on 2 Dec. Also bondsman for the marriage of Nancy Austin to Francis Wood, 11 Dec 1815.

Children who moved to Pike Co MO: Tyre, Benjamin, William, Turner, Hendley, Nathan, Elizabeth
Children who remained in KY: Samuel G., Amelia, John M., Elizabeth, Avarilla, Silas

1820 Madison Co KY Census, p.110:
John Haydon: 2m -10 [Nathan & Silas]; 3m 10-16 [Hendley, Turner, William]; 2m 16-26 Benjamin & John M.]; 1m 45+ [John]; 3f -10 [Elizabeth & Avarila & ???]; 1f 26-45 [???]; 1f 45+[Rachel] [Tyre already gone to Missouri]

[Did not find them listed in 1840]

This family is well documented in the "John Haden of Virginia" book.

John and Rachel are buried in what is called the John Haden Cemetery, Pike Co. MO, near the intersection of Ralls Road & Beailey Bridge Road. Presumably the cemetery is located on their place. Unfortunately a document linked to Pike County on USGenWeb lists the wrong father for John Haden, stating he was the son of William Haden of Culpepper Co - he was not a son of William, nor was he or his father ever from Culpepper Co. The birth year on his stone - 1769 - does not agree with family Bible records as 1772.

John HADEN and Rachel REYNOLDS were married on 12 January 1793 in Campbell County, Virginia.1,203,204,205 Rachel REYNOLDS, daughter of Isaac REYNOLDS, was born on 14 January 1774.206 She died on 21 September 1842 at the age of 68 in Ralls County, Missouri.3

Other dates in this article from "The Hayden Family Quarterly" are all somewhat incorrect. Had her name as "Rebecca Reynolds". Her grave marker in Pike Co MO has a birth of Jan 14, 1774, death as 21 Sep 1842.

John HADEN and Rachel REYNOLDS had the following children:



Tyre A. HADEN.



Samuel G. HADEN.



Amelia M. HADEN.



John M. HADEN.



Benoni HADEN.



William HADEN.



Turner HADEN.



Henley HADEN.



Elizabeth HADEN.



Nathan HADEN.



Silas HADEN.



Avarilla HADEN207,208 was born on 25 December 1817 in Madison County, Kentucky.1

"John Haden of Virginia" says that Avarilla remained in Kentucky.

However, in the 1850 census in Ralls Co, MO, she is in the household of her sister Elizabeth and her husband Edmund Bailey and their children. She would have been too young to have remained in Kentucky alone and the early censuses in Ralls Co indicate she was a member of her father's household there in Missouri.
