Aaron Hayden1

b. 27 July 1790, d. 3 March 1869
     Aaron's son Joel E. Hayden wrote for the Hayden Genealogy:

"In regard to my father I can only say that his history was that of the average farmer, only perhaps a little more so, for his father died when he was fourteen years of age. Uncle Martin was twelve and Uncle William seven. During the summer after his father's death, he cleared up seven acres of land where the timber had been cut and left on the ground. He was very robust, and was considered a power at raisings, logging, bees, and wrestling matches, and when roused (although a very quiet man), was said to be a good fighter. He was a Whig and Republican in politics but did nto run after office. He was fairly educated for the times in which he lived, and kept well up with the times by extensive reading in his later years, and never sighed for the good times of long ago." Aaron Hayden was born on 27 July 1790 at Conway, Franklin Co., MA. He was the son of Aaron Hayden and Sarah Rice. Aaron Hayden married Hannah Hopkins in 1810. Aaron Hayden died on 3 March 1869 at Auburn, Cayuga Co., NY, at age 78.

William Hayden1

b. 2 May 1797
     William Hayden was born on 2 May 1797 at Conway, Franklin Co., MA. He was the son of Aaron Hayden and Sarah Rice. Quoted in the Hayden Geneaolgy:

"William was the first to engage in the manufacture of wollen cloths in the county (Cayuga) as a special and distinct business. In 1824, he removed from Auburn to the present site of the Hayden factory, near Port Byron. In 1844, Hayden & Son added machinery for the manufacture of a line of cloths, flannels, and yarn, designed expressly for the home market. Their goods were known as Haydens' extra, durable, no-shoddy cloths and flannels. The cloth for the famous "old white coat" of Horace Greeley was made here. The mill has been kept in operation by the originator, or some one of his sons, to the present time, --the only one now left in operation in the county out of some fifteen or twenty that have at different periods been operated within its borders."

From Joel E. Hayden, quoted in the Hayden Genealogy:

"He was an influential member of the State Legislature, 1852 and 1853. He was not an orator, but was very successful in securing the passage of the bills he introduced."

Levi Hayden1

b. 31 July 1773, d. 30 January 1839
     Levi Hayden was born on 31 July 1773. He was the son of Levi Hayden and Margaret Strong. Levi Hayden married Wealthy Haskell, daughter of Jabez Haskell and Elizabeth Bissell, on 30 October 1800. Levi Hayden died on 30 January 1839 at age 65.

Levi was the eldest of the family. He was never of robust health, and a little below the medium stature. His boyhood differed little in its routine from that of other farmer boys of his day. Hunting and fishing, with an occasional "raising," were among the principal recreations which relieved the monotony of farm life, which then called for long days and frugal fare. He acquired the rudiments of a good practical education in the district school, and ten winters of school teaching, in his own and other districts, and continued reading made him a well-informed man. He conducted farming and brick-making successfully, and was careful to give his children the full benefit of the increased facilities for education. He was often called to settle the estates of his deceased neighbors, and filled various offices of public trust. He took a lively interest in political affairs; made a voter under Washington's administration, he continued to act with the Federal party so long as that party retained their organization, and fully shared the solicitude of his political associates, lest the doctrines of their political opponents should lead to what we now call communism and anarchism.

He saw with alarm the overthrow of the old charter in 1818, and read in that act a protest against the restraints of the government established by the fathers. He was not an office-seeker, but his active interest in political affairs, and his public spirit, would doubtless more often have given him political offices had not his party been almost uniformly in a minority.

in his family relations he was most fortunate. He commenced married life in the house where he was born, and remained there until the end. There grew up around him a family of 7 sons and 4 daughters, their ranks unbroken by marriage or death until the youngest was 13 years old. His firm and mild government of his family, supplemented by our mother's support, gave us a well-ordered home, and a mutual attachment for each other and our home, which still lingers there. Since we have scattered into families, we still rally at the old home (I boast of having sat under the ancestral roof-tree every annual Thanksgiving Day except two in 75 years); 39 years my father stood at the head; for 22 years after my mother presided there, and since that time the place has been filled with great acceptance by our eldest sister, who still opens the hospitable doors to every returning member of the scattered clan. Our mother was endowed with strong common sense, had many friends, was hospitable and generous, energetic, and devoted to her children, and reverenced by them. In later life she united with the old church in Windsor, where she had been accustomed to worship, and her last days were cheered by the Christian's hope, and all the earthly comforts that human affection and care could provide, and when the end came, her seven sons took her up tenderly, and reverently bore her to the grave beside our father. ---Jabez Hayden.

Hezekiah Hayden1

b. 6 June 1777, d. 16 May 1823
     Hezekiah was the second son, and his boyhood was spent at home, with its school-days and tiol interspersed with the recreation common at that day, --hunting, fishing, house-raising, etc., with an abundant supply of thanksgiving and election cake in their season. But he caught the fever so prevalent among lads and young men when New England's interests lay largely in her commerce, and took one or more voyages to sea before the mast. He made one voyage to Rotterdam, and saw a new, or rather an old, world in that ancient city founded centuries before the discovery of America. Its inhabitants, with their quaint costumes and dutch twang, the architecture of their city, and the landscape, all in such marked contrast with his boyhood surroundings at Haydens, that he came home "a traveled man," with his ardor for a sea-faring life cooled to the freezing point. He thenceforth devoted his energies to gaining a knowledge of and establishing himself in the business of cloth-dressing. This was then a comparatively new art in Connecticut, having been brought from Eastern Massachusetts and established at Pinemeadow (now Windsor Locks, three miles from Haydens) a few years before the subject of this sketch was born. Nearly all the cloth of that day was manufactured in families, and had, previous to that time, been worn as it came from the loom. Mr. Hayden followed the tide of emigration, early in the present century, into the State of New York, and established himself first at Hartwick, then at Springfield, Ostego County, and, in addition to his trade, conducted his farm and saw-mill, and was "a leading man in community." He died in middle life, and his wife only survived him three months.

Their children were scattered, and their fortunes will be told in their proper order. Several years ago those children had a reunion at their childhood's home at the head of Otsego Lake, and a few aged people who had known their parents wre invited to their feast. They found the unmarked graves of their parents, and now a granite shaft, with proper inscriptions, marks the spot; and though the house and mill are not gone, some of the children (themselves now grandparents) have, from time to time, been seen since that eventful reunion walking over the grounds where they played in childhood. Hezekiah Hayden was born on 6 June 1777 at Haydens, Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Levi Hayden and Margaret Strong.1 Hezekiah Hayden married Hannah Hayden, daughter of Isaac Hayden and Lucy Phelps, on 17 December 1801. Hezekiah Hayden lived at Springfield, Otsego Co., NY. He died on 16 May 1823 at age 45.1

Strong Hayden1

b. 27 July 1780, d. 8 December 1849
     Strong Hayden was also known as Return Strong Hayden Referred to in the Loomis Genealogy as "Return Strong Hayden". He was born on 27 July 1780 at Haydens, Windsor, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Levi Hayden and Margaret Strong. Strong Hayden married Lovisa Loomis, daughter of Uriah Loomis and Apphia Sheldon, on 16 May 1805 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.2 Strong Hayden died on 8 December 1849 at Bennington, Genesee Co., NY, at age 69.

Strong Hayden was the third son of Levi, and like his brothers, he spend his early life on the home farm. The art of cloth-dressing and wool-carding was a growing industry, and himself and several of his brothers "served apprenticeship" at the business, and after attaining their majority followed the tide of emigration west, where they "set up the trade."

b. 20 May 1782, d. 4 November 1847
     Martin was the fourth son; he also became a clothier; and for a time before his marriage, assisted his brothers, Hezekiah and Strong, at Hartwick, N.Y., and afterwards became their successor, continuing the business successfully, until manufacturing establishments had so far superseded the domestic manufacture that there was little work for "the clothier" of earlier days. About 1836 (?) he removed to the outskirts of Cleveland, O., where he took up farming, and later removed to Milwaukee, Wis., where he died, 1847. He was, while living near Cooperstown, on terms of intimacy with Fennimore Cooper the novelist, who complimented him for his skill and love of hunting, by making him the model for one of the characters in the "Leather Stocking novels."

Martin Hayden was born on 20 May 1782 at Haydens, Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Levi Hayden and Margaret Strong.1 Martin Hayden married Amelia Griswold, daughter of Edward Griswold and Elizabeth Griswold, on 4 March 1811.

     Anson, the fifth son of Levi, entered mercantile life, and for several years was a merchant in Hartford, of the firm of Sigourney & Hayden; from thence he removed to New York, 1823, and established an importing business under the firm name of Hayden & Timins. The writer remembers when "Uncle Anson" and his wife went to England, 1824, which was then a great event. He was one of the 7 (?) men in New York who organized the American Institute to promote American manufactures, although against his pecuniary interests as an importer, he was a strong advocate of a protective tariff. He removed to Cleveland, O., in 1830, and engaged in real estate business. He fancied that he belonged to then same genealogical line as the great German composer, and wrote his name Haydn. His living daughters still remain at the homestead he established in Cleveland. Jabez Hayden.
