  1. 4.  George Hayden was born before 1776 in St. Mary's County, Maryland (son of William Hayden and Elizabeth Thompson); died in 1859 in Springfield, Washington, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    Emigrated from Maryland to Kentucky in 1788. [www.stmarysfamilies.com, citing Hayden/Rapier and Allied Families by Mary Louise Donnelly.]

    Laura Hayden notes that, compared to other Haydens of this time and place, there appear to be unusually long spans of time between the births of George and Mary Hayden's children. We suspect this means we don't have a full record of all of them.

    The 1820 census enumeration of George Hayden's family lists two "Free White Persons - Males - 16 to 25", and two "Free White Persons - Females 10 to 15", none of whom can be accounted for by George and Mary's known children. This is specifically relevant to our belief that George and Mary were the parents of Joseph Hayden b. ~1800, who would account for one of the missing males aged 16 to 25; for more on that, see Joseph's own page. It could also account for another son named Clement, unless Clement is just Joseph Clement or Clement Joseph. We have no theory of the identity of the missing daughters aged 10 to 15, who would have been born between 1805 and 1810.

    The book History of Daviess County, Kentucky. Together with Sketches of Its Cities, Villages and Townships, Educational, Religious, Civil, Military, and Political History; Portraits of Prominent Persons, Biographies of Representative Citizens. And an Outline History of Kentucky (Chicago: Inter-State Publishing Company, 1883) states that George and Mary Hayden's son George Samuel Hayden (1810-1876) was "the youngest" of "a large family". In fact, we believe he was the youngest of George and Mary's children, and that George's several further children were the offspring of a second wife named Nancy Doncaster or Duncaster. But at any rate, three children - Elizabeth, Eleanor, and George Samuel - don't constitute "a large family" by the standards of the time. So we're strongly inclined to believe that George and Mary had more children than those for whom records have survived.

    George married Nancy Doncaster. Nancy was born before 1794. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Nancy Doncaster was born before 1794.

    Notes:

    Or Nancy Duncaster.

    We give her birth date as "before 1794" because the 1820 census of George Hayden's household counted one "Free White Female" aged 26 through 44.

    She is not present in the household of George Hayden in the 1850 census, which suggests she had died by then.

    Children:
    1. 2. John Thomas Hayden was born in 1822; died on 31 Dec 1901 in Penick, Marion, Kentucky.

  3. 6.  Daniel McAllister was born in in Ireland.
    Children:
    1. 3. Ann Rebecca McAllister was born about 1828 in Springfield, Marion, Kentucky.


Generation: 4

  1. 8.  William Hayden was born about 1742 (son of George Hayden and Charity); died on 10 Apr 1794 in Washington County, Kentucky.

    Note attached by "stashyc" to William Hayden in her public ancestry.com tree:

    Basil Hayden Sr. and his brother William Hayden, sons of George Hayden (d. 1754) were living in Kentucky at the time of their mother Charity's death. Neither were mentioned in Charity's will of 1791. Elizabeth Hayden (d. 1761), the boys' grandmother, left [land to] just the two oldest children of her deceased son George [...]

    "Item I bequeath to my two grandsons William Hayden & Basil Hayden sons to George all that part or parcell of Land whereon William Morgan now lives known by the name of Shankes Resque containing 102 acres more or less to be divided Equally between my two grandsons as above mentioned". According to the Rent Rolls (43:105) Basil sold his share to his brother William on 9/17/1767.

    Accompanied his brother Basil to Kentucky in 1785.

    Deed recorded 3/31/1789 (Deed 2:59-60) in Nelson County, Virginia (became the state of Kentucky in 1792) records William Hayden['s] purchase of 400 acres of land "...beginning in James Cloyds line..." (on Pottinger's Creek).

    William Hayden's will was proved null and void in the case "Hayden Heirs vs Hayden Executors" files 1794. The names of all of William Hayden's heirs were given in the court case (A:191-192) in Washington County, on 2/22/1796. When the heirs sold William Hayden's land, Bennett Hayden was not named as he had given whatever was to come to him from his father's estate "to my sister Mary Hayden" - dated 4/10/1794 (Deed A:178 Washington Co., KY).
