    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.



    Owensboro Messenger, 9 Feb 1908, page 9:

    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.

  2. 13.  Sarah Frances "Fannie" NewtonSarah Frances "Fannie" Newton was born 7 Oct 1879, Liberty Hall, Breckinridge, Kentucky (daughter of Henry Isaac Newton and Margaret Matilda Lewis); 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.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: 1876

    Notes:

    Dates for William Richard Workman:

    Kentucky Birth Records, 1852-1910 gives his birth date as 7 October 1875.

    Notes taken by Jeannette Hayden in conversation with his daughter Neville Workman give his birth date as 4 October 1875.

    The 1880 Fulton County, KY census lists him as "W. R." and gives his age as 5, which is consistent with that.

    But the 1900 Fulton County, KY census gives his birthdate as "Sept. 1876" and his age as 23.

    The 1910 census gives his birth date as "about 1877"; the 1920 census says "abt 1878".

    And the Hammonds family tree page gives his birthdate as 4 October 1877.

    The Hammonds page is our only source for his death date. We've put Detroit down as his place of death because Patrick's mother recollects, based on conversations with his father's family members, that in later years he came up north and had a small store -- "a little candy store, which could have been a sort of convenience store, in Detroit." Evidently his wife Kate and his daughter Mildred wouldn't see him, but his daughter Neville would visit him and called him "Papa."

    -----

    This, which is primarily about his father, gives his dates as 4 Oct 1877 - 1 Jul 1945. It also calls him "Willie R. Workman."

    We're going to go with 4 October 1875 for these reasons:

    (1) It's what his daughter Neville remembered
    (2) The Kentucky record (7 October) may actually be a christening
    (3) It's also the date given by the rootsweb page cited just above, albeit in 1877, not 1875

    -----

    There is a Find a Grave page for William Richard "Willie" Workman, who would appear to be our William Workman. There is no genealogical information shown -- neither parents, nor spouse, nor children -- and the only date shown is a birthdate of 1876. But it does claim that he's buried in Fairview Cemetery, Fulton, Kentucky, and it shows a headstone which reads:

    WORKMAN

    GRACE HORACE WILLIE JEFF SIS

    Our William Workman had siblings named Grace and Horace; his father was named Jefferson; and his mother Narcissa was generally addressed as "Sis." So wherever and whenever he died, he would appear to be buried here.

    William married Kate Jacobs 12 Nov 1903, Gibson County, Tennessee. Kate (daughter of Monroe Marshall Jacobs and Mary Frances "Fannie" Butler) was born 11 Mar 1886, Milan, Gibson, Tennessee; died 1964, Detroit, Wayne, Michigan; was buried , Forest Lawn Cemetery, Detroit, Wayne, Michigan. [Group Sheet]


  4. 15.  Kate JacobsKate Jacobs was born 11 Mar 1886, Milan, Gibson, Tennessee (daughter of Monroe Marshall Jacobs and Mary Frances "Fannie" Butler); died 1964, Detroit, Wayne, Michigan; was buried , Forest Lawn Cemetery, Detroit, Wayne, Michigan.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: 1887
    • Alternate birth: 11 Mar 1887, Tennessee

    Notes:

    Her father Monroe Marshall Jacobs died when she was about five years old. Then when she was nearly eight, her mother married Uriah Jasper Hammonds.

    When she was sixteen, she herself married William Richard Workman, her stepfather's nephew, twelve years older than her. (William's mother Narcissa was Uriah Hammonds's sister.)

    Sometime in the late 1920s, when she was about forty and her younger daughter Mildred was still in her teens, she bundled up both daughters and left for Michigan (legend says, in the middle of the night), never to see her husband again.

    According to my father, Neville stayed in occasional touch with her father, but Kate and Mildred had nothing further to do with him.

    I'm always wondered if she was pressured into marrying her stepfather's nephew while she was still in her teens, and if the marriage ultimately worked out as well as such an arrangement might have been expected to. The abruptness of her departure does suggest some kind of sudden and unpleasant discovery or event. (Alternately, her mother's death in 1926 might have been what finally set events in motion.)

    --PNH

    One of the witnesses to the record of William Workman posting marriage bond was a "J. T. Hammonds". Possibly William Workman's cousin James Thomas Hammonds (1863-1914), son of Younger Hammonds -- or possibly William's cousin Thomas James Hammonds (b. 1865), son of Kate's stepfather Uriah Jasper Hammonds by his previous wife Mary Elizabeth Bobbitt. At any rate, it does seem like Kate Jacobs spent a lot of her early life overwhelmingly surrounded by Hammondses.
