Generation: 1

  1. 1.  John Hayden was born 16 Feb 1784, St. Mary's County, Maryland (son of Basil Hayden and Henrietta Cole); died 1785, En route to Kentucky.

Generation: 2

  1. 2.  Basil HaydenBasil Hayden was born 2 Jan 1744, St. Andrew's Parish, St. Mary's County, Maryland (son of George Hayden and Charity); died Between 21 Jun 1804 and 6 Aug 1804; was buried , Holy Cross Cemetery, Holy Cross, Marion, Kentucky.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 15 Jun 1804, Washington, Kentucky

    Notes:

    After his father died when he was ten, he was raised by his mother and her second husband, William Morgan.

    On a "Catholic Pioneers" roadside historical marker placed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky:

    "Basil Hayden, Sr., led 25 Maryland Catholic families to settle near here, on Pottinger's Creek, 1785. Father Whelan said first Mass in Ky. here in 1787. First Catholic church west of Alleghenies built here in 1792. First monks, 1805, Trappist Fathers (Cistercians). Present church erected in 1823, under direction of famous Belgian missionary, Charles Nerinckx."

    The marker is on N. St. Francis Road (highway 527) just south of Holy Cross Road (highway 457), next to Holy Cross Cemetery, about five miles west-northwest of the Maker's Mark distillery in Loretto.

    It would probably surprise many people in, oh, say, Santa Fe, New Mexico, whose first Catholic church was built in 1626, to hear that the "first Catholic church west of Alleghenies" was built in 1792. The assumption being, of course, that the real history of the United States is that of white English-speakers gradually moving east to west. This is the very definition of how marginalization works.

    Basil married Henrietta Cole Bef 1771, St. Mary's County, Maryland. Henrietta (daughter of Robert Cole and Ann Greenwell) was born 2 Jul 1754, St. Mary's, St. Mary's County, Maryland; died 6 Dec 1837, Marion County, Kentucky; was buried , Holy Cross Cemetery, Holy Cross, Marion, Kentucky.
