Col. Mo. Regt. C.S.A. [m. Pricilla Frances (January) Haden] has posted online this brief obit:
Col. J. H. Hayden
Corsicana, Tex., Jan. 12
Col. J. H. Hayden, who died yesterday morning at his home was in the afternoon interred in the cemetery at Dresden. He was upward of 60 years of age. His demise was sudden and a great surprise to his friends and family. The deceased was a gallant ex-confederate officer. He settled in this county shortly after the war and became one of its most useful and distinguished citizens. He leaves a large family and a host of friends to mourn his death.

James Hambleton Marquis HADEN and Priscilla Francis JANUARY were married on 11 May 1852 in Harrison County, Kentucky.1 Priscilla Francis JANUARY, daughter of John Marshall JANUARY and Mary C. TAYLOR, was born on 11 June 1826 in Cynthiana, Harrison County, Kentucky.1,513 She died on 9 December 1885 at the age of 59 in Navarro County, Texas.233

Priscilla is also buried Dresden Cemetery, Navarro Co, TX. Her stone has been read with a death date of 1885 instead of 1895. Since her husband's brief death notice mentions no spouse in 1890, I suspect the 1885 date is the correct one.

James Hambleton Marquis HADEN and Priscilla Francis JANUARY had the following children:



John January HADEN226 was born on 9 May 1851 in Howard County, Missouri.226 He died on 30 January 1903 at the age of 51 in Coconut Grove, Miami-Dade County, Florida.1

John J. Haden, age 27, Officer USA; born MO, father b. MO, mother b. KY

Passport Application dated 15 May 1895 from Cherry Co, Nebraska. John J. Haden and wife, Florence T. Haden born near Versailles, MO, 5 Mar 1860. The applicant was born near Glasgow, MO, 9 May 1853; his father a native born citizen of the U. S. His permanent residence was in the United States Army where he was a Capt of the 8th Regt, U.S. Infantry. He was about to go abroad temporarily and intended to return in Oct of 1895.
John was 42 years old, 5'9", blue eyes, dark brown hair. The passport was to be sent to Fort Niobrara, Nebraska.
As the settlements moved westward across the United States, military forts were built at strategic points to protect them. Nebraska, like other states, had this form of protection. Because the land which is now included in Cherry County joined the Rosebud Indian Reservation on the south, one of these United States forts was established on April 22, 1880, on the Niobrara River four miles east of the present city of Valentine. It was named Fort Niobrara and the first officer in charge was Major John J. Upham who was then in command of troops B, D and F of the Fifth Cavalry and Company B of the Ninth Infantry. As finally laid out by Congress the military reservation around Fort Niobrara consisted of fifty-four sections of land.
The Fort was a most valuable asset to the settlers as they came into the county. It provided a market for cord wood, hay, grain, poultry and dairy products. Many women added to the family income by doing laundry for the soldiers. The soldiers often sold clothing to civilians for small sums.
Fort Niobrara was officially abandoned on October 22, 1906. The troops were transferred to other localities. A 16,000-acre tract of the military reservation was retained by the government for a national game preserve on which small herds of buffalo, elk, deer, antelope and long-horned Texas cattle roam today.
