Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, GA
     Reuben Cone Hayden was born on 1 January 1871 at GA; GS. He was the son of Judge Julius A. Hayden and Harriet E. Cone. Reuben Cone Hayden died on 23 January 1899 at age 28; GS. He was buried at Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, GA; Block 8, Lot 305.

Mr. Reuben C. Hayden, one of the best known and most popular young men in the city, died at 2 o'clock this morning at the residence of his sister, Mrs. Harry H. Hightower, 167 West Peachtree street.

Mr. Hayden has been ill since January 14th with typhoid pneumonia, and though it was known for some days that his condition was critical, his death has proved a severe shock to his relatives and friends.

From the first he seemed to realize that he would not survive his illness, and he stated on yesterday that he knew he would soon die, but that he had no fear for death. The following relatives survive him:

His mother, Mrs. J. A. Hayden; his brother, Julius A. Hayden; his sisters, Mrs. A. M. Thrasher of Sanford, Florida; Mrs. E. H. Phillips, Mrs. Geo W. Harrison, Mrs. Harry H. Hightower, Mrs. R. C. Whitner, of Atlanta, and Mrs. John G. Williams of Washington, D. C. Mrs. Williams is at present in Atlanta on a visit, and Mrs. Thrasher has been telegraphed for.


A Well-Known Clubman

Mr. Hayden was 28 years old. His father, Judge J. A. Hayden, was one of the most prominent men in Atlanta during the early days of the city. The young man was a member of the insurance firm of John A. Bowie & Co., and a conspicuous figure in social as well as business affairs. He was vice president of the Young Men's Athletic Club. and a member of the Capital City Club, and the Piedmont Driving Club.

The funeral services will take place at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the residence of Mrs. Hightower. The interment will be at Oakland.

The following friends of Mr. Hayden will act as pallbearers: A.J. Orme, M. M. Jackson, E. C. McCune, R. F. Shedden, Frank M. Inman, Charles Matthews, jr., W. P. Hill, and Ulric S. Atkinson.


Death May End Litigation

The effect the death of Mr. Hayden will have on the large number of suits he he had filed to recover an eighteenth interest in a vast amount of valuable property is not yet known.

A gentleman who is very close to the members of the family said this morning that he thought Mr. Hayden's death would end all of the litigation.

"The members of the family were averse to the litigation," he said, "and I know they have taken absolutely no interest in it. Reuben has been criticized for his conduct in it, but it was not his desire to oppress any one. Shortly before his death he gave quit claim deeds to about thirty poor people whose property was involved. They went to him for the purpose of making settlements, but he declined to take their money.

"From the view that his relatives have previously taken, I would think his death would put a stop to all of the suits which are still pending, but I do not speak authoritatively. If he made any reference to this litigation during his illness I have not heard of it."


Mr. Hayden's Lawyer Talks

Judge R. T. Dorsey, Mr. Hayden's attorney, when asked what the effect of Mr. Hayden's death would be, said:

"The effect will be to delay the litigation, that is all. An administrator will be appointed, and the suits will be continued in his name. A great many of the cases have already been settled and there are not so many remaining. I suppose there are about 100 left."

When asked if there was any likelihood of the relatives deciding to stop the suits Judge Dorsey said he did not know, but it would be possible to dismiss the suits upon the payments of the costs already incurred.

The interest which Mr. Hayden had in the litigation was derived from a marriage contract made between his grandmother, Mrs. Lucinda Cone, and Judge Underwood. The contract provided that Mrs. Underwood should have a life estate in the property and at her death it should go to her daughter, Mrs. J. A. Hayden, and to Mrs. Hayden's children. As one of the children, Reuben C. Hayden was held to be entitled to 1-18th of all of the property involved.

George Washington Harrison
The Atlanta Constitution
     George Washington Harrison was born on 31 March 1849 at Randolph Co., GA. He was the son of Hon. George Warren Harrison and Frances West. George Washington Harrison married Lucie Minerva Hayden, daughter of Judge Julius A. Hayden and Harriet E. Cone, on 29 April 1874 at Atlanta, GA.

from The Atlanta Constitution 13 November 1892:


Among the many public-spirited business men of Atlanta to whose labors and enterprise the world-wide fame of this city is largely due, few occupy a more conspicuous position and deserve more praise than the subject of this sketch, Mr. George W. Harrison, general manager of the Franklin Publishing House. The accompanying cut is an excellent likeness of this well-known gentleman.


He is a member of a distinguished Georgia family. His father, Hon. George Warren Harrison, for years represented Randolph county in the general assembly, and was secretary of state during the administration of Governor Towns, being succeeded after his death by Hon. N. C. Barnett. His elder brother, Hon. Z. B. Harrison, is the popular and efficient clerk of the supreme court, which office he has filled with distinction for many years uninterruptedly, and the important duties of which he is still discharging with marked ability.


Mr. George W. Harrison is a living example of what energy, self-reliance and a broad-minded business policy will accomplish.


His duties are manifold and exacting, demanding a clear head, decision of character and versatility of talent; yet everything is so thoroughly systematized that not the slightest jar occurs in the management of his extensive business. His duties include those of general manager of the Franklin Publishing House, the most extensive business of the kind in the south, and whose splendid building on Ivy street adjoining Edgewood avenue, is one of the architectural ornaments of our city. He is also and has been for a number of years, state printer, an office of honor and great responsibility, in which he has given unqualified satisfaction, as attested by the state officials from his Excellency through all the departments, whose confidence and friendship is unquestioned. During the trying times of reconstruction Mr. Harrison was in the executive department with that grand man, Charles J. Jenkins, at whose request he remained in office until the government was removed to Atlanta. He is also manager of The Southern Cultivator, the oldest and most popular agricultural monthly in the south. He is also manager of the Southern Architect Publishing Company, which issues the only architectural and building magazine in the southern states.


Mr. Harrison has always taken deep interest in everything calculated to promote the prosperity of the country, and is an influential participant in enterprises whose object is to push the south to the front. He is a life member of the Georgia State Agricultural Society, and by his liberality and public spirit has well earned the title of "the farmers' friend," bestowed on him at one of our agricultural conventions.


It was to his individual efforts and liberal pecuniary aid, that the recent road congress held in this city as well as the direct trade convention, both of which were most important events, proved so largely successful. Both of these movement for the best interests of Georgia and the south have now assumed the grand proportions of a national movement.


A large number of employees are engaged in the various departments of the extensive establishment under his control and the amount of the annual payroll makes a large contribution to the material wealth of the community, especially disseminated among the worthy wage-workers of our city.


In religious and philanthropic work also he does his full share and no public charity has ever found him unwilling to assist. He is a consistent member of the First Presbyterian church, and is the efficient chairman of its board of deacons.


He has never sought political or social distinction, preferring to do his duty in the quiet walks of life, and finding his highest and purest pleasures in the home-circle. On his accomplished wife, who is a daughter of the late Judge Julius A. Hayden, and on his two lovely children, he lavishes the wealth of his affection finding in them and in their devoted love, that true contentment which is the crown of a well-spent life, and in exchange for which all the gold and silver and honors of this world would count as nothing.


His career and the results of it serve as an excellent object lesson to the young men of our day. If they will aim high, concentrate their efforts, avoid idleness and fashionable dissipation and by pure and upright living command the respect of their fellow men, success is certain in whatever they undertake, and their lives will be a source of blessing to themselves and to the world. Nine-tenths of the disgraceful failures of today are due to the violation of these essential elements of success which we have just mentioned, and the exercise of which have given the subject of this sketch the prominent position he occupies among the successful business men of this city.
