Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Wilford Hayden was born on 25 Mar 1772 in St. Mary's County, Maryland (son of William Hayden and Elizabeth Thompson); died on 10 Jul 1827 in Washington County, Kentucky; was buried in St. Rose's Cemetery, Springfield, Washington, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    In bequeathing the "land where I now Live" to his wife Nancy in his will of 5 Sep 1827, Wilford Hayden mentions that the land had been deeded to him by Mordecai Lincoln.

    Mordecai Lincoln (1771-1830) was an uncle of the 16th president of the United States. In 1797 he bought 300 acres near Springfield, Kentucky from Terah Templin, Kentucky's first ordained Presbyterian minister, and built a two-story log house on it. On 4 Feb 1802, Lincoln sold 200 of those acres, including the house ("that tract or parcel of land with the appurtenances and improvements") to Wilford Hayden. In around 1815 Hayden expanded the house, adding a Federal facade. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the structure survives today on US Highway 528 near Springfield, the only house of any member of the Lincoln family still standing in Kentucky. Renovated in 2007-08, it is open for tours by appointment.

    On several occasions, President Lincoln referred to his uncle Mordecai as the relative who had most influenced him, remarking that "Uncle Mord ran off with all the talents of the family." Mordecai Lincoln married Mary Mudd, a Roman Catholic, and presumably converted; at any rate, he is buried at the Old Catholic Cemetery (also called the Lincoln Cemetery) near Fountain Green, Illinois. His son, also Mordecai Lincoln, the 16th President's cousin, was vehemently anti-Catholic; he was also known as a "woman-hater", i.e., a man determined to not marry. The younger Mordecai and the future President corresponded on several occasions and met at least once; they shared an avid interest in their family's history.

    In a further twist of history, Mordecai Lincoln's wife Mary Mudd (d. 1850) was a first cousin twice removed to Dr. Samuel Mudd (1833-1883), tried and imprisoned for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. After more than three years he was pardoned by Andrew Johnson and released from prison in 1869. The question of his actual culpability is still controversial. Both Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan wrote letters to his descendant Richard Mudd in which they agreed that Dr. Mudd had committed no crime.

    In the "Statement of Significance" in the 1972 application to have the Mordecai Lincoln House added to the National Register of Historic Places, it is stated that Wilford Hayden (called in the document "Wilfred Haydon") was by 1815 "a wealthy man." In the same section, the Federal frame added by Wilford Hayden to Mordecai Lincoln's log house is called "one of the finest architectural examples in Kentucky."

    Wilford married Ann C. "Nancy" Lee on 6 Jun 1793. Ann (daughter of Phillip Lee and Susannah Thompson) was born in 1774 in St. Mary's County, Maryland; died on 17 Apr 1835 in Washington County, Kentucky; was buried in St. Rose's Cemetery, Springfield, Washington, Kentucky.

  2. 5.  Ann C. "Nancy" Lee was born in 1774 in St. Mary's County, Maryland (daughter of Phillip Lee and Susannah Thompson); died on 17 Apr 1835 in Washington County, Kentucky; was buried in St. Rose's Cemetery, Springfield, Washington, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    From the Find a Grave page for Ann "Nancy" Lee Hayden:

    Ann "Nancy" Lee was the daughter of Philip Lee, who kept a diary of the Maryland League, and Susannah (Thompson) Lee.

    Ann Lee first married Captain Samuel Willett, 1753-1793, in Nelson County, Virginia (now Marion County, Kentucky) on August 12, 1786. James Morrison was the surety (bondsman) on the their marriage bond dated August 12, 1786. Philip Lee, father of the bride, filed a written consent with this bond. They were married by the Rev. William Taylor, a Baptist minister.

    Mrs. Ann (Lee) Willett married secondly to Wilfred Hayden on June 6, 1793 by the Rev. Father William DeRohan, the Roman Catholic priest at the Pottinger's Creek Catholic Settlement (now Holy Cross) in Nelson (now Marion) County, Kentucky. Henry Hayden was the bondsman/surety for their bond dated the same day and William Hayden, father of the groom, and Philip Lee, father of the bride, filed consents with this bond. These records are on file in the Nelson County Clerk's Office in Bardstown, Kentucky.

    Ann "Nancy" (Lee) Willett Hayden died testate. She wrote her will on April 4, 1835 and it was probated and recorded on April 27, 1835 in Washington County, Kentucky Will Book #F, on page 171 in the County Clerk's Office in Springfield, Kentucky. She left legacies to: her sons, William Hayden, James L. Hayden, Henry Hayden, and Philip Hayden; to her granddaughters: Elizabeth Roby, Martha Eleanor Linten, Nancy Hayden, daughter of my son Philip, Amelia daughter of my son James Lee Hayden and an unnamed granddaughter, daughter of her son Henry Hayden; legacies to her grandsons: children of my daughter, Wilfred Hays, Henry Hays, Thomas Hays, and Philip Hays. She named John Janes as her executor. This will was witnessed by George Grundy and Thomas Reed.

    Notes:

    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).

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 15 Jun 1804, Washington County, Kentucky

    Notes:

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

    His birthdate is widely given as 2 Jan 1743/4, i.e. 2 Jan 1744, but a record of his father's probate from 7 Aug 1755 says he was 12 years old at that point, which would indicate he was born in 1743.

    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.

    Will of Basil Hayden:

    In the name of God, amen. I, Basil Hayden, of the County of Washington and State of Kentucky, being sick and expecting short to die, but of sound memory and understanding, do constitute and ordain this to be my last will and testament. My soul I resign to my Creator who gave it me, and my body I desire to be buried in the place assigned for that purpose, at the chapel adjoining my plantation, and to my worldly goods, after all my just debts are paid, I will and bequest in manner and form following, to wit:

    I will and bequeath unto my eldest son, Stanislaus Hayden, two Negroes, namely Clare and George, which he has now in his possession to belong to him and his heirs forever, also twenty pounds in trade to satisfy him for his demand he claims of me for labor and to make up his losses in moving. I give and bequeath unto my wife, Henrietta Hayden, my land and premises, for and during her natural life, reserving therein a home and good maintenance for my two daughters, Ann and Teresa, and my son, Edward, for and during their single lives. It is also my will and desire that my two daughters and last-mentioned son have a home and maintenance in said land during the single lives after their mother’s death, and then the land to be sold with reserve and the profits equally divided amongst my heirs. I also give my wife, Henrietta, for and during her natural life, the following Negroes, namely Jack, James and his wife Hannah, a woman, Nell, Easter and her son Matthew and Poll, one bed and furniture and the [illegible], also a bay mare named Madam, the mare to dispose of as she may think proper, but the Negroes and land and the profits thereof to be equally divided amongst my heirs at her death, except the reserve before made. I give and bequeath unto my son, Robert Hayden, a Negro woman named Mary and a boy named Samuel, which Negroes he has now in his possession, to be his and his heirs forever. I give unto my son Basil Hayden the Negroes he now has in his possession, namely, Sarah and Luke, to him and his heirs forever. I give unto my daughter, Ann Hayden, two Negroes named Bill and Isaac, to belong to her and the heirs of her body lawfully begotten, if any, if not, at her death to be equally divided amongst my heirs. I give unto my daughter Teresa Hayden two negroes named Harry and Charles, to belong to her and the heirs of her body lawfully begotten, if any, if not, at her death to be equally divided amongst my heirs. I give and bequeath unto my wife’s son, William Hayden, one negro boy named Nace, and one bed and furniture and it is my will that he shall come in for half share only of all the distributions which shall hereafter be made of my estate except the land, which he is to have no part of. I give unto my son, Lewis Hayden, two negroes named Joseph and Susan and also the yellow sorrel mare and young colt. I give unto my son, Edward, two Negroes named Clement and Clare, daughter of Nell. It is also my will and desire in case any of the Negroes, willed to Ann, Teresa, Lewis or Edward, should die before the death of my wife that their loss or losses shall be made good together out of the Negroes willed to my wife funding her life before distribution of those Negroes shall be made amongst my heirs. I leave one Negro boy, Jeremiah, to be sold it if be necessary to pay my debts, but if it can be done without, not to sell him. I given unto the Rev. Mr. Badin and those he may thing proper to make his heir a boy named Gerrard, also my right and title in and unto two hundred acres of land he now lives on. It is my will that the Negroes willed to Lewis be hired and the profits reserved for him until he comes of age and by his working on the plantation it is my will for him to stay with his mother after this year until he is twenty-one years old, but if he will not work I wish him to have some more schooling and bound to some decent and profitable trade. The profits of the other Negroes willed to Ann, Teresa and Edward, I wish their mother to make use of in clothing and maintaining them decently during her life. I leave my son Basil Hayden, Executor, to this my last will and testament and all the residue of my estate not legaced in this will to be dealt with according to the directions of the law. In testimony of this my last will and testament I do hereon set my hand and affix my seal the 15th day of June In the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and four.
