    EIGHT CHILDREN IN EIGHT YEARS

    Is Record of Young Curdsville Couple.

    Among them are three sets of twins -- Four Boys and Four Girls

    If All People Followed Their Example Owensboro Would Extend From Hardinsburg to Henderson.

    Whether there is race suicide in process of perpetration in this country or whether there is not, there is a young couple in Daviess county, eight years married and parents of eight children. If their example were followed by all the people in Daviess county this section would shortly be such a city that Main street would extend from Hardinsburg to Henderson. It would be a city that could furnish wives for the womanless of the West and soldiers for the armies of the world.

    These young people are Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Hayden of the Curdsville neighborhood. Mr. Hayden is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Hayden, his wife was, before her marriage, Miss Fannie Newton. Both are members of well known and highly respected families. Mr. Hayden is a farmer by occupation and is prosperous.

    Of their children four are boys and four are girls. Among them there are three pairs of twins. The first was a boy, then came twins, then a girl and then came twins again, two boys. Saturday, on the eighth anniversary of their marriage, a third pair of twins came, bringing the total number of children to eight. The latest twins are girls.

    Mr. Hayden is thirty-three years old and weighs 125 pounds. His wife is twenty-nine years old and weighs 150 pounds.

    This record has probably never been surpassed in Daviess county. There is a case on record of a couple in this same section of the county who had five children in a year—but this was maintained for only one year. It was nearly forty years ago. In January, twins were born to them, and in December of the same year triplets were born. But Mr. and Mrs. Hayden have the record for recent years.

    The father of Mr. Hayden brought the news of the birth of the latest pair of twins to Owensboro yesterday afternoon.

    YOUNG FARMER DIES

    And Leaves a Widow and Eight Children

    Clarence Hayden died of heart trouble at 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon at his home at Rome, after an illness of several months. His death, while sudden, was not unexpected. He had been in poor health for some time. Mr. Hayden was twenty-eight years old and a respected farmer of the Rome section. His wife, who was before her marriage Miss Newton, survives him, with eight children. The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock Sunday morning from St. Raphael's church. The interment will be in the church cemetery.

    Clarence married Sarah Frances "Fannie" Newton 31 Jan 1899, Daviess County, Kentucky. Sarah (daughter of Henry Isaac Newton and Margaret Matilda Lewis) was born 7 Oct 1879, Liberty Hall, Breckinridge, Kentucky; died 15 Nov 1970, Highland Park, Wayne, Michigan; was buried , Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Southfield, Oakland, Michigan.

    Notes:

    Listed in the 1911 Owensboro city directory as "Hayden, Fannie (wid. Clarence), seamstress, res. 819 Mulberry."

    She outlived her husband by 62 years and all but one of her children. PNH remembers encountering her in childhood and finding her both interesting and terrifying. She's the single recent ancestor he'd most like to have a conversation with.

    James S. Hayden, one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of Daviess county, died suddenly of heart trouble Wednesday afternoon at his home in the West Louisville neighborhood. His death was entirely unexpected, as he was apparently in good health.

    Mr. Hayden, for many years, was a resident of Daviess county and a valuable citizen. He was [born] in Nelson county, Ky., August 23, 1836, and was a son of Joseph Hayden, deceased, a native of Washington county. He came to this county in 1852. He enlisted in Company K, Fourth Kentucky Infantry, Confederate army. He was in many battles and never lost a day's service while in the army. He was married to Miss Mary D. Hayden, on January 28, 1868, his first wife, and eight children were born to them. He is survived by his second wife and five children, four sons and one daughter. Mr. Hayden was a member of the Catholic church and was a Christian gentleman.

    The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock this afternoon from St. Alphonsus chuch, and the interment will take place at the church cemetery.


    From the Owensboro Messenger, 8 Nov 1908, page 7:

    SHOWN THE MEMORY OF JAMES S. HAYDEN
    Meeting of Rice E. Graves Camp of Confederate Veterans Held and Resolutions Adopted.

    Rico [sic] E. Graves camp was called together to take action on the death of Comrade James S. Hayden, who died near West Louisville. On motion the commander appointed the following committee on resolutions: Nick Lancaster, Thomas Murphy and James H. Cottrell.

    The committee reported the following, which was adopted:

    Whereas, One more call, one more answer. J. S. Hayden, member of Rice E. Graves camp, answers to the final call and passes into the great beyond. Brave soldier and good man, always ready, both in the field of battle, or in the peaceful pursuits of life; generous in life, true to his friends, and stood by his political party to the last. When death called he was anxiously scanning the returns of the election, like a [sic] brave soldier he was. "Oh," he said and joined his comrades on the other side. Just a promotion, higher up in the ranks, where the boom of cannons or the strains of a soldier's life is not known. Peace to his ashes.

    J. S. Hayden was born in Nelson county, in the year 1836. Daviess county was his adopted county. He was a member of Captain Millett's company K, Fourth Kentucky infantry, also a member of the Rice E. Graves camp.

    Therefore be it resolved. That we, as members of said camp, express our sympathy and sorrow for the broken link in the chain that is almost too short to be counted. A few of us still remain to gather around one more dead comrade and we extend to the family our heartfelt sympathy.

    Second. That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the camp roster and a copy sent to the family of the deceased.

    T. M. MURPHY.
    NICK LANCASTER.
    J. H. COTTRELL.

    Notes:

    Listed in the 1911 Owensboro city directory as "Newton, Margaret (wid. Henry), bds. 819 Mulberry."

    The 1910 US census lists her as a "farmer" and as an "employer".

    Her death date has often been given as 16 Dec 1919, or (as on her Find a Grave page) 23 Dec 1919, but the actual date given on her death certificate is simply Dec 1919. The doctor (Edward Barr) states that he has been attending her since 1 Feb 1919 and that 16 Dec 1919 is the last date on which he saw her alive. His signature on the death certificate is dated 22 Dec 1919. Furthermore, the Owensboro Messenger for Tuesday, 23 Dec 1919, says she died "Monday morning", which would indicate the previous day, 22 Dec 1919, the same day her death certificate was signed. The death certificate also states, in agreement with the next day's story in the Messenger, that she is to be buried the next day, 23 Dec, at St. Raphael's.

    Owensboro Messenger, Tuesday morning, December 23, 1919:

    Mrs Margaret M. Newton, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed women of Daviess county, died Monday morning at 7 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Walter Elder, in the St. Raphael neighborhood, after an illness lasting for several months.

    Mrs. Newton was born in Breckenridge County seventy-nine years ago, and her husband died in this county twenty-seven years ago.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Joseph HaydenJoseph Hayden was born Abt 1800, Washington, Kentucky (son of George Hayden and Mary Polly Elliott); died Bef 1883, Kentucky; was buried , St. Catherine's, New Haven, Nelson, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    Joseph Hayden's parentage remains unproven. But we (Laura Hayden and PNH) think it very likely he was a son of George Hayden (1776-1859).

    (1) DNA evidence indicates that Patrick is probably a direct paternal descendant of the immigrant Francis Heydon who died in St. Mary's County, Maryland circa 1694. Specifically, his brother Benjamin's Y-DNA is a 99%-plus match to that of several people with documented paternal descent from Francis. Additionally, Benjamin's Y-DNA is also a strong match to that of people descended from Charles Evans Hayden (1873-1939), who was a grandson of George Hayden (1776-1859).

    (2) We do not have a record of a straight father-to-son descent from Francis to Patrick. We have records that show Patrick is descended from Francis, but they go through the maternal line at least twice. (Specifically, the documented descent from Francis goes through Joseph's son James's wife Mary Drucilla Hayden, daughter of Urban Hayden, son of Mary A. Hayden, daughter of Charles Hayden, himself a direct male-line descendant of Francis. Urban's father William Leo Hayden was not a descendant of Francis, but he married a Hayden, Mary, who was.)

    (3) We have never been able to find a record of the parents of Patrick's paternal great-great-great grandfather Joseph Hayden (~1800-<1883).

    (4) And yet, if the DNA evidence is to be believed, Joseph must be a direct paternal descendant of Francis.

    This has led us to examine the question of which direct paternal descendants of Francis Hayden (d. ~1694) were in Washington County, Kentucky at the right time to be the father of Joseph Hayden who was (according to the 1883 History of Daviess County, Kentucky, citation details below) born there in approximately 1800.

    William Hayden, direct paternal great-grandson of Francis Hayden, was born in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1742. He and his family emigrated from Maryland to Kentucky as part of the expedition led by his more famous brother Basil Hayden. William Hayden died in Washington County, Kentucky on 10 April 1794.

    His sons were:
    Charles Hayden, b. ~1766, St. Mary's County, MD; d. 1813, Washington, KY
    Benedict "Bennett" Hayden, b. 1768, St. Mary's County, MD; d. 1794, Washington, KY
    Henry Hayden, b. 1770, St. Mary's County, MD; d. 1828, Washington, KY
    Wilford Hayden, b. 1772, St. Mary's County, MD; d. 1827, Washington, KY
    George Hayden, b. <1776, St. Mary's County, MD; d. 1859, Springfield, Washington, KY
    Thomas Hayden, b. 1779, St. Mary's County, MD; d. 1850, Fancy Farm, Graves, KY

    Benedict Hayden is unlikely to have been Joseph's father, unless our birth year for Joseph is off by at least six years. That leaves Charles, Henry, Wilford, George, and Thomas.

    Kentucky's 1800 census records were burned by the British during the War of 1812. But surviving tax lists from 1800 turn up 17 men named Hayden, Heydon, Haydon, or Haydin being taxed in Washington County that year. Among those seventeen are names corresponding to all five of William Hayden's sons known to have been alive and in Washington County in 1800: a Charles Heydon, a Henry Heydon, a Wilfrid Haydin, a George Hayden, and a Thomas Haydon. ("Will Heydon" and "Willy Heydon", also among the 17 names, might well be the same individual as Wilfrid/Wilford.)

    Charles Hayden is already known to be a 5G grandfather to Patrick, as the father of Mary A. Hayden who married William Leo Hayden, natural son of Basil Hayden's wife Henrietta Cole. Charles is unlikely to be the father of Joseph because the records show him and his wife Eleanor Elliott as parents of a different child born in 1800, Charles Hayden Jr., who married Eleanor Hagan (1803-1882) and died in 1838. That leaves Henry, Wilford, George, and Thomas.

    Henry Hayden married Jennet Lee in Kentucky in 1789, and she had several children by him before she died sometime before 1796. In July 1796 Henry married Mary Green, and we have no record of them having any children.

    Wilford Hayden married Ann Nancy Lee, and they had a child in 1800, Phillip Hayden, who married Elizabeth Thompson Hayden (1811-1849) and died in 1841.

    Thomas Hayden married Mary Willett in January 1802. They had 13 children, including a John Joseph Hayden in 1812, but John Joseph married Elenor Hobbs and isn't our Joseph Hayden.

    That leaves George Hayden (1776-1859) as the likeliest father for Joseph Hayden. George Hayden married Mary Elliott, the sister of his brother Charles's wife Eleanor Elliott, in Washington County, Kentucky in 1796. George and Mary's first recorded child is Elizabeth b. 1798; the next one we're able to find is Eleanor b. 1803. As Laura Hayden points out, this a very long gap for the usually-prolific Haydens; Joseph could well have been born to them in that gap.

    Some unsourced online records show George Hayden and Mary Elliott with a son identified as "Clement Hayden" born c. 1800 in Washington County, Kentucky. It's hardly impossible that this Clement's full name was Clement Joseph Hayden, or Joseph Clement Hayden. Or Clement and Joseph could be separate children; the gap is long enough to easily encompass the birth of two. Relevant to this, the 1820 census shows George and Mary's household containing two "Free White Persons - Males - 16 to 25", which suggests that they had at least two otherwise unrecorded sons prior to 1805.

    Just to reiterate, Joseph Hayden (1800-1883), Patrick's GGG grandfather, has to have been a direct paternal descendant of the immigrant Francis Hayden, unless the DNA results are wrong. And to repeat a supporting point, those DNA results also showed Patrick's brother Benjamin as a strong match to paternal descendants of a grandson of the George Hayden we are hypothesizing as Joseph Hayden's father -- Charles Evans Hayden (1873-1939), grandson of George by his second wife, Nancy Doncaster.

    Another thing we know as well as we know anything about Joseph Hayden is that he married Catherine Clayton on 26 Aug 1823 in Nelson County, Kentucky, and that she was a daughter of Joseph Clayton who fought on the Virginia line in the Revolution and died in Nelson County, Kentucky between 1813 and 1824.

    The following legal transcript, found at http://www.geocities.ws/johnadamfogle/26.html and entitled "Indenture, Nelson County, 11 April 1803", shows that as far back as 1793, William Hayden (father to George, who we believe to have been Joseph's father), and his son Charles Hayden, and Joseph Clayton, who would become Joseph Hayden's father-in-law thirty years later, were all neighbors in Nelson County, Kentucky, owning land that abutted one another's holdings.

    This Indenture made the (blank) day of March in the year of our Lord one thousand Eight hundred and three between Charles Morehead and Samuel Miller Commissioners of the County of Nelson of the one part and Joseph Fogle of the same county of the other part. Witnesseth that Whereas by an act of the general assembly of this state passed on the first day of March in the year one thousand seven hundred and ninety seven entitled an act to reduce into one the several acts for the conveyance and division of lands the County Courts of this state were authorized and directed to appoint Commissioners in their respective counties to divide and convey lands in certain cases and the said Morehead and Miller having been duly appointed by the County Court of Nelson for the purposes contained in the above recited act and having been called upon by the said Joseph Fogle to divide 5 certain surveys or tracts of land held in tennency in common between him the said Joseph Fogle and a certain Adam Fogle of the aforesaid County of Nelson as will more fully appear from the title papers of them the said Joseph and Adam aforesaid being thereto had one of the said surveys or tracts of land containing two hundred and fifty acres of land lying on the North side of the Beechfork in the said County granted by patent to Josiah Lee, and conveyed by said Lee to said Joseph and Adam Fogle, a second tract containing one hundred and ninety acres, a third tract containing twenty five acres the fourth tract containing fifty eight and one fourth acres and the fifth tract twenty acres and three fourths which four last mentioned tracts are hereafter more particularly described.

    Regarding his death date, Laura Hayden notes: "We don't have a date of death for Joseph. We only know it was after his last sighting in the census records - 1850 - and before his mention in this excerpt from the History of Daviess County (pub. 1883): 'James S. Hayden, born in Nelson County, KY, Aug. 23, 1836, is a son of Joseph Hayden (deceased), a native of Washington County.'"

    The Owensboro Messenger, 24 Aug 1880, lists "Hayden, Joseph S" as among those with a letter addressed to them at the Owensboro Post Office which "if not called for in thirty days will be sent to the Dead Letter Office."

    ***

    The 1850 census records Joseph as living in Nelson County with his daughter Mary Ellen Hayden and her husband Orville Price, and gives his age as "50". This is the chief evidence for a birthdate of around 1800.

    A Findagrave.com page exists for "Joseph Haydon", listing him as born in 1800 and buried in St. Catherine Cemetery, New Haven, Nelson County, Kentucky. It gives no death date, and the user who recorded this cemetery notes that they photographed every stone there and found no stone for him. Despite the fact that this Joseph Haydon's birthplace is given as "New Haven, Nelson County, Kentucky" instead of Washington County, we think this is our Joseph, because his daughter Mary Ellen and her husband Orville Price, in whose household we last see Joseph living in 1850, are both buried there as well.

    Notes:

    Twin brother of J. Raymond Hayden (1813-1856).

    The Owensboro Messenger and Examiner for 13 Aug 1879, page 3, reports: "A hen belonging to Urban Hayden, Esq, rose up and cackled over an egg within an egg last week. The phenomenon can be seen at his office."

    The Owensboro Messenger for 16 May 1885, page 4, records under "Real Estate Transfers": "Urban Hayden to Jo Aud, parcel of land for love and affection." Urban Hayden's daughter Mary Drucilla Hayden (d. 1890) was the first wife of James S. Hayden. James S.'s second wife was Margaret Josephine Aud.

    The Owensboro Messenger for 9 Feb 1889, page 4, for 10 Feb 1889, page 5, and for 22 Feb 1889, page 4, reports: "COMMISSIONER'S NOTICE, Daviess Circuit Court. C. W. Hayden, &c., Plaintiff, vs. J. G. Medley, &c., Deft. In Equity. All persons having claims against Urban Hayden deceased, are hereby notified to present same properly proven, to the undersigned, on or before March 1st, 1889. GEO. F. HAYNES, Master Commissioner." C. W. Hayden is probably Urban's eldest son Charles William Hayden (1845-1919).

    The Owensboro Messenger for 10 Feb 1892, page 1, reports: "Jerome Hayden sues James Hayden for a settlement of the estate of Urban Hayden." The James Hayden mentioned here is probably not Urban's son-in-law James S. Hayden, but rather his son James Urban Hayden (1856-1933). The Jerome is probably Urban's son Jerome, born about 1854.

    Urban married Rosella Coomes 14 Apr 1844, Daviess County, Kentucky.
