The Haden Family

February 23, 1980
Mrs. Esther Maiia, of San Luis Obispo, California, has written to me asking for any help I can give her on tracing her family. My own records did not produce much that would be of help to her, so I thought that some readers of this column might be able to. Mrs. Mazza wrote, "I would like to know If Silas Haden Sr., born 1812, In Virginia, was burled in Trigg County. I was always told he was at the Primitive Baptist (apparently Cumberland Church) Cemetery, now under the lake.

"My father was born and grew up at Golden Pond. Also my grandfather and grandmother. Do you know anyone working on the Crass line? or any of the others listed - Craig, Griffin, Lancaster, Bogard?"

Below Is a run-down of the family tree Mrs. Mazza enclosed. If anyone would like to correspond with her and perhaps piece together some of the missing Information, her address Is Mrs. Esther Mazza, 344 Henderson Street, San Luis Obispo, CalIfornia 93401.
