249. Alexander McCorkle HADEN422,423 was born in 1808 in North Carolina.423
Alexander may have married first in Alabama. Many of his father's land patents were in Tallapoosa County and I found this marriage record there:
Haden, A. M. to Burnaman (?) Louisa J. 1841
I believe this is this Alexander. DeSoto Parish, LA in 1850: Alex. Haden, age 42, planter, born in NC. Eliza A. 18 born MS. Mary L. 7 born AL. Alex M. 6, born LA. [I believe Eliza to have been a second marriage - the marriage recorded in DeSoto Marriage Book A, p. 95. She may also have been counted with her family in 1850 because in the household of G. A. Tharp is an Eliza age 17, born in MS.]
1860 DeSoto Parish, LA, Household 342:
A.M. Haden age 51, Farmer, Value of Real estate $3200, Personal $13, 400, b. NC.
Eliza age 28, Matron, b. MS; Mary L. age 18, b. AL, Alix E. age 16, Wm T 7, Kate L. 4, Ann E 3, and Alfred F. age 1, all born in LA. He had 14 slaves
By 1870, apparently both Alexander & Eliza had died. I found in DeSoto Parish, LA, Ward 3, Hh 141:
A. E. Haden, age 25, [male]. K. L. Haden, age 14 [female] and W. T. Haden, age 17 [male] living together. All born in LA.
In Hh 144 was Lou Haden, teacher, age 27. She was living with Alfred & Jane Galloway. [probably named Mary Louisa after her mother]
Alexander McCorkle HADEN and Eliza A. THARP were married on 29 October 1850 in Desoto Parish, Louisiana.424 Eliza A. THARP was born in 1832 in Mississippi.
This would appear to be kin of Eliza's:

George Allen Tharp brought his large family to De Soto Parish, namely the community of KEACHI in the early 1840's. He died there in Nov 1851. Then most of the family moved to east Texas after the start of the Civil War. I am seeking any information on these famalies. Especially his second wife Martha Amanda Bullard (they married in Mississippi in 1832). I'm also trying to find out where he is buried. His son, William Allen Tharp, donated the land for the Mt Carmel Methodist Church. Any one with infomation please contact me. Also, please visit my website: Tharpgenealogy.com No log-in is required.
