  • Notes 
    • Despite the handwritten caption on the photo of him as a young man, which says he died 3 Mar 1933, in fact his gravestone and all the other records say he died 17 Apr 1933.

      His mother Rosella Combs died when he was less than two years old; he was raised by his stepmother, Martha Ann Higdon.

      He married (as his second marriage) Mary Etta Newton, a daughter of Henry Isaac Newton and Margaret Matilda Lewis. His sister Mary Drucilla Hayden married James S. Hayden, her second cousin once removed, and their son Clarence married Mary Etta Newton's sister Sarah Frances Newton. And his son (by his first marriage, to Lou Belle Wayne) Frances Urban Hayden married Mary Lela Newton, daughter of Joseph Sylvester Newton and granddaughter of Henry Isaac Newton and Margaret Matilda Lewis. In other words, James Urban Hayden was the single individual most central to the great entanglement between the Hayden and the Newton clans.

      From the Owensboro Messenger, 18 April 1933:

      James U. Hayden, 77 years old, died at his home on the Wayne Bridge road at 4 o'clock Monday morning of complications of diseases. Surviving are his widow, four sons, Frank U., Jas. U., Jr., and Noel Hayden all of Rome and Leslie Hayden of Calhoun, and six daughters, Mrs. Jas. T. O'Bryan, Mrs. Geo. Schwartz, of Stanley, Mrs. Pat Ballard of Stanley, Mrs. Joe Ballard, Mrs. Wathen Head and Miss Wilma Hayden of Rome; one sister, Mrs. Fannie Higgins, of Owensboro; one brother, Jerome Hayden of Evansville, and thirty-nine grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at St. Raphael's Catholic church at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning with burial in the church cemetery. Pallbearers will be: Active - Edward and Urban O'Bryan, Bernard and Herman Hayden, Dennis Ballard and Jimmy Sims; Honorary - Thos. Hayden, Frank Shively, J.P. O'Bryan, Joe Sims, Virgil Hayden and Hurm Hayden.
