“Uncle John” as he was familiarly known to all
his friends, will be missed in the neighborhood
and especially in the councils of the Republican
Party of this county. He was a good friend to all
Who knew him and thus another of the “Old Boys”
Who wore the blue, has passed to the final roll
Call; Honored, respected and sadly missed by a
Large circle of friends. The sympathy of the
Entire county is extended to the bereaved relatives.

James Nelson was born in County Tyrone (probably in the townland of Townagh, Parish of Clogher) about 1809 (based on his age given in his death certificate) died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 29 Oct. 1886 and was buried in West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, PA. He married by 1830 (based on estimated birth of their first known child) Jane Stewart (1812-1885), daughter of William and Elizabeth (Graham) Stewart of the townland of Lislane. Their first known child, Eliza Jane Nelson, was born about 1830 (based on her age given in her death certificate). She died in Philadelphia 17 Dec 1910. Their first son, John Nelson was baptized in the parish church of Clogher 13 Nov. 1836. The baptismal record describes his father as a “yeoman of Tonagh.” Other known children born in County Tyrone include Martha Nelson (1833-1888), William Charles Nelson (1839-1862) and Catherine Nelson, baptized at the Aughentaine Presbyterian Church 9 March 1841. John and Catherine presumably died young as no further record of them has been found.

James and his family emigrated to Philadelphia in 1841 or 1842, where another daughter Catherine (Kate) was born 6 August 1842. Three more children, Dorothea (1845-1870), Mary (1847-1928) and Joseph Stewart Nelson (1850-1851) were also born in Philadelphia. The earliest record of James in the Philadelphia city directories describes him as a shingle shaver, while later entries describe him as a shingle merchant and then a lumber merchant.

James’ surname may have originally been “Neilson,” as the 1829 Tithe Applotment Book for the townland of Townagh lists James Neilson, William Neilson the elder, William Neilson the second and William Neilson the younger. While there is no evidence that these men were related to James Nelson, the similarity of their names suggests that they might have been.

George Hadden, sr., died at 6 o'clock Sunday morning, June 17th, at his home, No. 324 E. Franklin street, from illness due to advanced age. He was a native of Ireland, born in Tyrone County, A.D. 1812. In 1844 he married Martha Tipple and sailed immediately for America, to build them a home in the new world, the ship in which they sailed being seven weeks en voyage before reaching port, but now the same journey can be made in nearly as many days.

They settled at Leoni, where  Mr. Hadden was engaged in the grocery business until 1857, when he removed to Jackson, which has since been his home. Of the five children born to them but two are still living, George Hadden, jr., grocer No. 704 E. Main street, and John, who has been with his father as constant attendant the past year, the mother having departed this life Dec. 28th, 1894[sic – died 1893 see obit below].

These sturdy pioneers -- who have seen this undeveloped country reach its present perfected state of beauty and richness -- are rapidly taking voyage to the one which waits us all with its holden mysteries. Funeral at the residence, 324 E. Franklin street, Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. Interment at Leoni cemetery. Jackson Citizen, Jackson, Jackson Co., Michigan Tuesday, June 19, 1900 

Hadden -  At the family residence, 324 E. Franklin st., Thursday, Dec. 28, Martha Hadden, aged 73 years. Deceased was the wife of George Hadden and had resided in Jackson about fifty years. The cause of death was la grippe, from which malady Mr. Hadden is very low. Jackson Citizen, Jackson, Jackson Co., Michigan Tuesday, January 2, 1894

In the Leoni Cemetery, Jackson, MI, George and Martha Hadden have matching, small, modern block markers with these inscriptions:
George Hadden  (1812-1899)
Martha Hadden  (1816-1893)

George and Martha's son John's 1924 death certificate gives his parents' names as "George Hadden" and "Martha Tipson."

George and Martha's son George's 1925 death certificate gives his parents' names as "George Hadden" and "Don't know."
