13th Ex. Worth over $20,000
Recommended for pardon
Pardoned July 5, 1866

To His Excellency, Andrew Johnson, President of the United States.
Your Petitioner, a citizen of Campbell County, State of Virginia, respectfully applies for a Pardon under the 13th section of the Amnesty Proclamation issed on the 29th day of May 1865.
Your Petitioner has always claimed to be strongly conservative in his politics. He was an earnest supporter of the Union, up to the day when the war was forced upon the country, by the action of those whose influence was too powerful to be resisted by persons entertaining like sentiments with himself. He refused to ratifty by his vote at the polls the Ordnance of Secession, passed by the Virginia Convention, nor did he vote during the rebellion for any person to fill any office or station, whether State or Confederate. The aid which he gave to the rebellion was of such a character as could not easily have been avoided; it having consisted in furnishing a limited number of supplies for the support of the Confederate Army during the year 1863. It may be some extenuation of his offense in this respect to say that even this was done to avoid the alternative of a heavy impressment.
Your Petitioner begs leave to represent further that he has not applied for a Pardon heretofore for the reason that he has not felt that he was embraced within the exceptions to the Amnesty Proclamation. While the value of his taxable property may, perhaps, slightly exceed the sum of $20,000, he has not heretofore felt that he has voluntarily aided and participated in the rebellion within the meaning of the Amnesty Proclamation. To avoid any difficulty that may arise, however, he has deemed it best to present himself as applicant for Executive pardon, believing that clemency will not be denied to him which has been so liberally extended to others. He begs leave respectfully to invite attention to the Official copy of the Amnesty Oath and to the other papers which accompany this Petition.
Signed: M. Haden

On 24 Feb 2011, a proposal from the residents of the Evington community was made to designate a portion of State Route 24, a "Virginia Byway" for its historical significance and scenic value. Included in the description was the estate "Falkland" - originally "Forkland" at the confluence [fork] of Flat Creek & the Otter River. 200 acres with the home of Dr. Madison Haden, built in 1845. The article states that the home is currently occupied by 5th generation members of Dr. Haden's descendants.

Dr. Madison HADEN and Maria Louisa WATKINS were married.1 Maria Louisa WATKINS was born on 2 July 1816.3 She died on 20 January 1888 at the age of 71.3

i.

Benjamin Watkins L. HADEN was born in 1837 in Campbell County, Virginia.3,342 He served in the military in 1862 at Co B, 26th Texas Cavalry in Civil War.

John Haden of Virginia gives a birth of 17 Oct 1831; however, the 1850 census plainly states he was then age 13.

According to the Ancestry.com database, Benjamin served as a Private, Co. B. of the 26th Cavalry (Debray's) (Davis' Mounted Battalion), in the Confederacy during the Civil War.

There is a copy of a postcard sent 12 Feb 1912 to Dr. J. W. Haden, from Robert Otway Haythe, who was a nephew of Joel, Robert's mother being Cornelia F. Haden. The card was mailed from Algiers where the Haythes were visiting. Based on the 1920 census, he appears to have been still living on the homeplace.

Claims of the family of Richard H. Jones, an African American, that his father was Joel W. Haden. The information is ambiguous in regards to generations and names.

The following are possibilities from 1900 - 1910 - I also searched for any "R" Jones. Richard H. Jones' mother was said to be Roberta Jones & siblings Charlie (half brother), Louise and James.

1900 Census - Brookville, Richard son of Richard & Ida was born Apr 1889, father listed as "Bick" [Rick]
1900 - Seneca, Richard, son of Walter & Amy was b. 1885

1910 Census. Brookville, Campbell Co. Richard Jones, Black, age 50, married 1 time for 25 years, Laborer, stone quarry.

Roberta Farmer, head, age 32, married 1 time for 5 years, 9 children - 7 living, Cook, private family. Owns own place. She is obviously not the mother of the children if she has been married to Farmer only 5 years. Roberta and all the children marked as "mulatto"

George Martin, son, age 1 year, 6 months
Josephine, dau, age 0/12 - just born
Note: this family does have a Richard of the right age and a brother Charles and daughter Josephine. All are listed with the Farmer last name. It is possible Roberta brought children to the marriage, but there's no way to tell and I find nothing re this family in 1900. There was a William Farmer but the only name of the children that matches was family was possibly as Charles R.
