She contributed liberally to the building of Hayden Station Chapel, and left a small fund to aid in sustaining the omnibus which runs from Haydens to the old church at Windsor (three miles) on Sunday, to accommodate those not otherwise provided with conveyance. Also a fund for the distribution of religious tracts, and another for the promotion of temperance at Haydens. Mary Ann Hayden was born on 5 October 1803. She was the daughter of Levi Hayden and Wealthy Haskell.

Nathaniel Hayden1

b. 28 November 1805, d. 23 February 1875
     Nathaniel was the eldest son. He was resolute and energetic from early childhood, and like other farmer boys of his time, he early learned to work, with little interruption except when the district school was in session, and work soon took the place of the summer term. Before he was fifteen, a severe fit of sickness left him unable to endure farm work, and it became necessary to utilize his abilities in some other field. After some time spent in study, and three years in a country store, he accepted the offer of a clerkship at Charleston, S.C. He was then about 19 years of age, and remained there about twenty years. By close application, and persistent energy, he by degrees gained a position at the head of the house, the establishment becoming known as "Hayden Store, the handsomest on in the United States, Jewelry and military goods." In 1842, he turned over his interest in the concern to his two brothers, who had previously joined him, and returned to Haydens, intending to devote the remainder of his life to the interests of the old home, with his mother and sisters, and his motherless boy of 4 years old (his own father having died three years before). With the usual success of business men, who in middle life try to find scope for their activities in retirement, he, after two or three years of farm life, again returned to business, this time in New York. In 1858, he was elected President of Chatham Bank, New York, which position he held fifteen years. The bank under his administration was very successful, the value of its stock increasing one hundred per cent. He retired because of failing health, and returned to the old home to die. He was well read in the political history of his country, and had decided political convictions, but mingled little in partisan politics, and never held political office. He was an active member of the Union Party of South Carolina (1832), during the time of Nullification, and then, and ever after, thought it an evil day when the "Compromise Measures" left for future settlement the issues then pending, and when those issues developed in rebellion, nearly thirty years later, he became an active an enthusiastic member of the Union League of New York, and was among the foremost of the New York bank presidents to urge the policy of supplying the government with any amount of money needed to maintain its supremacy-even to the verge of bankruptcy for all the banks at the north.

During his life at the south, he spent most of his summer vacation at the old home. After a year of felicitous married life the old home became doubly dear, being the home of his motherless boy, until his life also went out under circumstances of peculiar trial (drowned at the age of 12 years). He was "the soul of honor" in business, honorable in all his relations with the public, generous and loyal to his numerous friends, and of inestimable worth to the old home and "those who rally round it." Jabez Hayden.
Nathaniel Hayden was born on 28 November 1805 at Haydens, Windsor, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Levi Hayden and Wealthy Haskell. Nathaniel Hayden married Theodocia P. Walter on 6 July 1837. Nathaniel Hayden died on 23 February 1875 at Haydens, Windsor, Hartford Co., CT, at age 69.

Oliver Hayden1

b. 3 December 1807
     Oliver, inheriting a good physical constitution, applied himself diligently to either farm work or brick-making, as occasion required; and after our elder brother fell out, by reason of disability, he became (next to our father) the leader of his younger brothers in our work and our frolic, both of which were vigorously and harmoniously pushed. He early became an advocate of total abstinence from all intoxicating liquors, and has continued in its practice ever since. After reaching his majority he spent a year or two in Western New York, then, for several years, in Windsor Locks, where he was associated with the men who were prominent in molding the institutions of the then infant village. About 1840 he bought one of the Owen farms in East Granby, where he still resides, and says, "I think I never enjoyed life better than I do now." He has ever been an active supporter in every good work in the community, is still (in his eightieth year) a working member and a deacon in the Congregational Church. He gave a worthy son to his country, who died from the effects of his sufferings at Andersonville.

His wife, Jane, was a descendant of John Owen, one of the founders of Windsor.

It may be presumed to be a question of interest to some of those whom I have badgered, to others who, without urging, have answered my requests with their family records, and also to those others whom I had never met, but who entered enthusiastically into the work of making for me as full a record of their own branch of the family as possible, to learn something of the author, and of the principles and prejudices which have colored his work.

I have inherited a love for the Congregational Church, from the old church in Windsor (organized 1630) through the blood of her first pastor, John Warham, her first deacons, and a goodly number of her lay members, including William Hayden; and thence down through all the generations preceding my own I have had ancestors in her fold, and only withdrew myself reluctantly from that old church when the time dame for organizing a church of like order in this village, and for more than thirty years I have been one of the deacons here; and perhaps I should add that my orthodoxy has a "New England Primer" in it, with the catechism just as I learned and repeated it in the district school Saturday in the forenoon. Let me congratulate the Haydens of the Connecticut line, on the evidences found all along my researches, that they have carried hence to their widely-scattered homes and their different communions so many of the moral and religious traits which marked the faith and practice of our Puritan ancestors. In political life I accepted the teachings of my father. Was a Whig; am now a Republican. I have ever taken an active interest in all elections, from a president down to a school visitor or grand juror, and am still ready to "stand up and be counted" with others engaged in the enforcement of the laws against the illegal traffic in intoxicating liquors, and have practiced "total abstinence" for more than half a century. Most of my school days were spent at the district school at Haydens. Two winters, with other brothers, I attended the academy at Windsor, three miles away, walking the distance daily, and making a record of attendance equal to the best. One winter I attended school elsewhere, and was then longer absent from the old home than at any other time in my life, and was more awfully homesick. I find that many of the Haydens here and elsewhere, have, for longer or shorter periods, been engaged n the laudable work of teaching school. I, too, was a schoolmaster, and 'boarded round." But soon after reaching my majority I entered the employ of the Connecticut Silk Manufacturing Company at Hartford, and remained with them three years, then (1838) I came to Windsor Locks, and engaged in the manufacture of sewing-silk, the only silk goods we at first had skill enough to make. Under our firm name, Haskell & Hayden, I conducted the silk business forty-three years and until I reached the age of "three score years and ten," when I retired from business, with an income sufficient for a moderate support. I then anticipated much satisfaction in pursuing my genealogical work, with little interruption, and hoped to have published my collections within two years; but six have already passed, and (March 1st) the printer has only made a beginning. It the hours I have devoted to antiquarian and genealogical work were divided into days of ten hours each, they would amount to two or three years of my life. I am located but two and one-half miles from Haydens, the neighborhood where all my Hayden ancestors have lived since the primeval forest fell before them, where stands the old house in which I was born and my father before me, with the brave old oak, which, for one hundred and fifty years, has overshadowed it. I have rarely been absent from my old home a month at a time (though I have been into twenty-four States of the Union), and all my seventy-five annual Thanksgiving days except two have found me there; and I accept, without question the discovery made by one living in the neighborhood more than a hundred years ago, that "it is just about the center of the world." 3

Jabez' education was obtained in the district schools of Windsor, and for two winters he attended the old academy in that town. He taught school for a short time and upon reaching his majority entered the employ of the Connecticut Silk Manufacturing Company of Hartford. Returning to Windsor Locks in 1838, he engaged in the manufacture of sewing silk as a member of the firm of Haskell & Hayden. This business he continued for forty-three years, until his retirement at the age of three score and ten, since which he has spent considerable of his leisure time in the pursuit of genealogical works, being the author of several books of an historical nature, including the Hayden Genealogy, which contains a history of the family from William Hayden, who was born in England about 1600, through six generations, up to 1888, with many additions since the book was printed. He was a frequent contributor to the newspapers of articles pertaining to the olden times and customs of his town and county, these being printed under the title "Historical Sketches." "The Memorial History of Hartford County" contains several contributions from him, and Stiles' "Ancient Windsor" includes much historical matter furnished by him. He was one of the early members of the Connecticut Historical society, and joined this Society February 4, 1890, as a descendant of Levi Hayden, of Windsor, a private soldier; also of Jabez Haskell, of Windsor Locks, a private soldier, and of Lieutenant Return Strong. For fifty years he was an active member of the Congregational church.4

Capt. Samuel Strong Hayden1

b. 13 October 1813, d. 14 April 1863
     Capt. Samuel Strong Hayden was born on 13 October 1813 at Haydens, Windsor, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Levi Hayden and Wealthy Haskell. Capt. Samuel Strong Hayden died on 14 April 1863 at Battle of Irish Bend, LA, at age 49. He was buried at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.

Samuel's boyhood differed little from that of his brothers. He was perhaps physically stronger than any of us, and pursued farming from first to last. On reaching his majority, he went west, bought a farm in Illinois which he cultivated a year or two, and satisfied himself that all the west had to offer hims was more than counterbalance by the loss of privileges he had left behind him at the old home. He returned, married, bought a place adjoining the old homestead, and a few years later made him a home in the outskirts of the village of Windsor Locks. He was an active member of the Congregational Church, had a talent for public speaking, and secured the interest of his hearers when he spoke, especially on the subject of temperance. Called, at the age of 18, to serve in the militia in his native town, he rose to the rank of major of the first regiment. When, in 1862, enlistments failed to meet the requirements of the general government, and a draft was impending, the citizens of Windsor Locks held an enthusiastic meeting to fill her quota if possible, by enlistment. The subject of this sketch was then in his 49th year, and had not fully recovered the vigor of his early manhood, since his attack of ague and fever induced by his residence on the prairies. He was called to the chair, and after others had spoken, he came to the front and made a speech which carried the enthusiasm of the meeting to the highest pitch. With scathing words he set forth the position of those in arms against our government, and eloquently appealed to the young men to volunteer and meet them and save the government, closing with the declaration, "for myself, I am going," and taking up the pen he signed the enlistment papers. The cheering was tumultuous; others crowded forward until a goodly number had enlisted. Company C, 25th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, was formed and went south with Captain Hayden at their head. After several months' campaigning, the battle of Irish Bend, Louisiana, occurred on the 14th of April, 1863. During a rebel charge, Capt. Hayden's last rallying cry was "don't run, boys," and he himself fell dead where he stood. Few served their country with a more loyal spirit, or met the trials of army life, and death itself, with a more devoted patriotism. His remains were recovered, and sleep with the fathers in the cemetery at Windsor.2

Judge Hezekiah Sidney Hayden1

b. 29 January 1816, d. 7 June 1896
     Judge Hezekiah Sidney Hayden was born on 29 January 1816 at Haydens, Windsor, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Levi Hayden and Wealthy Haskell. Judge Hezekiah Sidney Hayden married Abigail Sarah Loomis, daughter of Col. James Loomis and Abigail Sherwood Chaffee, on 9 August 1849. Judge Hezekiah Sidney Hayden died on 7 June 1896 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT, at age 80.2

H. Sidney developed no very marked traits in boyhood to distinguish him from his brothers. The same routine at school, work and play, he shared equally with the others, and yet on special occasions he perhaps put more enthusiasm into his work than the rest of us. In our boyhood days the wild pigeons returned to us every autumn and sometimes in the spring. We were all, including our father, enthusiastic lovers of the art of "Pigeoning," and when the sport was so successful that we filled our mother's larder to overflowing, and a few dozen of pigeons were to be marketed, Sidney was the boy to do it. It was found that he could sell them quicker, and at a better price, than any of his brothers. His susceptibility to the poison of elder and ivy was such as to unfit him for a farmer, and at the age of about 16 he entered a country store, from which he graduated two or three years later, and joined his brother in Charleston, South Carolina. Here, with untiring industry, he applied himself, under the leadership of his elder brother, and on the retirement of that brother (1843), took the lead of the business himself. He was largely instrumental, by his personal efforts and large contributions, in the erection of Grace Church, Charleston, of which he was a member and vestryman. After successfully conducting the business in Charleston about fifteen years, he returned to Windsor in 1858 (?), where he has since resided. He has served in both branches of the Connecticut Legislature, has been a judge of probate more than twenty years, and until disqualified by the seventy years' limit set for all judicial offices. He was appointed one of the trustees to select a site and erect buildings for a Hospital for the Insane, and has been continued in office to the present time. He has been chairman of the trustees and of their building committee, and has had supervision over the erection of nearly all the buildings now composing the Connecticut Hospital for the Insane at Middletown, which has cost the State a million dollars. His services have been gratuitous (as have been the services of the other trustees), and he has devoted much time to the interests of the institution.

Soon after his return to Windsor he prepared and furnished suitable buildings for a Young Ladies' Seminary, an institution which has been well sustained and is still in the full tide of success. He is one of the trustees and the treasurer of the Loomis Institute, an educational institution ultimately to be established with its large fund at the old Loomis Homestead in Windsor. His enterprise and investments have added much to the growth and attractiveness of the historic old town of Windsor, in which he takes a commendable pride, as the home of his ancestors from its early beginnings. He has been a large contributor to Grace Church (Episcopal) in Windsor, and is a devoted member and senior warden of it.3

Augustus Henry Hayden1

b. 16 November 1817
     During his minority his experiences differed little from those of his older brothers, possibly the parents had become "more lenient toward the younger children," but I have already said "my father had better government than any other person I ever say." There was a little episode in this boy's early life, which may or may not be taken as foreshadowing the greater event which followed long years after. He enjoys my story if he did not the episode or what followed, so I will make a record of it. On one occasion he showed a propensity to disregard the public authorities, and engaged with other lads in stoning the gable window of the district school-house. This was an offense for which my father thought there was no adequate punishment but the rod, which he then used for the first and last time within my recollection; yet this same boy, when grown, was found among the Confederates of Charleston, S. C., in 1861, and the consequences of his associations, that time, were more serious than on the other occasion, for he found the fortune he had accumulated gone, his business gone, and himself drafted into the Confederate service. His family had previously been sent into the northern part of the State, and were in the track of Sherman's army when he moved north, and there met their war experience. After the blue-coats had moved on the family took an inventory of their effects, and found themselves somewhat better off than some of their neighbors (the elite of Charleston), who were gathering up the corn wasted by the soldiers' horses for their next day's rations.

My brother has always had a happy talent for gaining favor and friends among his associates. As a ladies' man, with a reputation above reproach, he was always a success. It was never a burden for him to take his younger sister three miles to singing-school, or to lend a hand and sing himself when he got there. He had nearly reached his majority when he joined his brothers at Charleston, S. C., and became identified with the "Hayden Store," of which he became the head on the retirement of his brother Sidney. He married there and identified himself those around him, often spending his summers with his family at the old homestead at Haydens. He came in haste a thousand miles to see his mother in her last sickness, and remained to the end, and with his six brothers bore her to her grave beside our father. He still (1888) lives among his Charleston friends, the center of an interesting family, and though was, earthquakes, and advancing years have taken some of his elasticity from him, he yet loves the society of his old friends, and enjoys the mutual admiration which exists between himself and the generations which succeed him.

Levi Gaylord Hayden1

b. 22 September 1821, d. 26 January 1887
     Levi, the youngest of eleven children, all at home until he was three years old, and all living until he was thirteen. He remained at the homestead until the age of twenty-eight, when he married, build a house beside the old one, and continued to carry on the farm for his mother and sisters. In stature, he was rather under medium size, and, like his father, a subject of chronic ill-health. But when the war broke out he was accepted as a soldier (1862) and went to the front, a sergeant in his brother's company, the Twenty-fifth Connecticut Volunteers. Some months after reaching New Orleans he was sent to the hospital, and finally discharged and sent home. During his stay in the hospital, his regiment suffered heavy loss at the battle of Irish Bend, his brother, the captain, being killed. With the proper authority, he visited the scene soon after, recovered the body of the captain, and sent it home. He never regained his former health, was quire an invalid the last years of his life, at times unable to perform the duties of ticket agent at the railroad station, except by deputizing some one of this boys. Unlike his brothers he joined the Free Masons, and took deep interest in the order, but, like them, he also joined the church, of which he was a worthy member.

Hezekiah Hayden

b. 5 June 1804, d. July 1829
     Hezekiah was noted for his conciliating manner in the family, his brothers and sisters always looking up to him for assistance and cooperation in all their little plays and trials; and as soon as his age would allow he led the boys in farm work in all its ramifications, plowing the side hills, picking up stones, etc., etc., on the Springfield estate.

One year from the death of his parents, after the settling up of the estate, he and his brother Albert went to Buffalo, N. Y., and set up a small trade at Black Rock. After a brief period in this locality, he started out with a small party for trade and observation. He took the lake to Maumee Bay, then by canoes up the river of the same name to Fort Wayne, and entering the head waters of the Wabash made his headquarters at Lafayette, in a section of the country then quite new and unsettled, where he established a trading-post, drawing his supplies from Cincinnati. Here he fell a victim to the fever of the country in 1829, much esteemed and regretted by the little community about him. -Levi Hayden Jabez Hayden.

Albert Hayden1

b. 24 March 1807, d. 24 June 1849
     Albert was sixteen when his parents died, and when it became necessary to break up the family he found his way to Buffalo, where he soon gained an enviable position for one of his years, which enabled him afterwards to engage in mercantile business on his own account. The writer visited him and his interesting family in 1843, when he was in prosperous business, with an enviable reputation as a business man and a citizen. But he took the California fever in 1849, and with twelve chosen associates, who were organized with him as their president, they set forth from Buffalo on that then romantic and perilous enterprise, an overland trip to California. They made fairly sucessful progress until they reached Horse Creek, near Fort Laramie, when the party was smitten with cholera, and the subject of this sketch and three others died after a few hours' sickness. The survivors continued on, reaching Sacramento in one hundred days, but would have perished when near there but for the government relief train, which came out from the other side to meet them. His family remained in Buffalo several years, when the sons went to New York, and later on the rest of the family followed them. Albert Hayden was born on 24 March 1807 at Springfield, Otsego Co., NY. He was the son of Hezekiah Hayden and Hannah Hayden. Albert Hayden died on 24 June 1849 at Fort Laramie, Goshen Co., WY, at age 42.
