Found in DeSoto Parish LA in 1850: Robt. G. Haden, age 3? [ink blot but maybe 38], planter born in NC. He had living with him August L. Benebrie, his wife Eliza, and family. He is indexed as "Hadny" but the film definitely reads Haden based on the surrounding handwriting. The above cemetery record indicates that Rhoda and all their children had died. Rhoda appears to have died soon after the birth of the son Thomas.

Postmaster of Bayou Pierre: Robert G. Haden. 30 Jun 1851; discontinued 19 Dec 1854.

Robert Gillespie HADEN and Rhoda H. RIVERS were married on 24 November 1836 in Clarke County, Alabama. Rhoda H. RIVERS was born (date unknown).
