Surnames: Hadden, Thigpen, Blakey, Shelton, Coplin
I would like to know more about the family history of my paternal grandparents:

Asa Hadden(1922-1999),
husband of Thelma Blakey(1919-1999);
father of Nick, Elizabeth, John(my dad), & Linda;
son of (I think) Fleming J Hadden(1885-1965) & Callie Shelton(1895-1980).

Fleming J Hadden is the
son of Joshua Hadden(possibly 1840-?)
& Elizabeth Frances Thigpen(1848-?).

Elizabeth's parents were Seaborn Thigpen(1824-1860) & Lucinda Coplin(1819-?). Beyond that, I don't have much info.

Joshua Hadden is a mystery so far. His father &/or grandfather may have been John Hadden(s).

Relevant areas in Georgia may be Hartwell, Hart, Wrens, Washington Co., & Jefferson. I'm not too sure about the places. Some of the family (Thelma & Asa) moved to La Porte Co., Indiana in the 50's.

Check the boards for the other surnames I've listed here if any of this is familiar to you. I'll post additional queries with some more specific info in the appropriate boards.

I have photos of relatives I don't know & some big branches are missing in my family tree, so please help if you can!

Hi brooke8trout-

I am finding Joshua Hadden to be a mystery as well, and I too believe John Hadden may be his father but unsure. According to my father, our Joshua Hadden was married to Amanda Thompson??

Joshua is supposedly my great, great grandfather. His son was George Timothy Hadden married to Margaret (Maggie) Hadden, they had a daughter Alma Hadden. One of Alma's sons was my father, Bobby R Williams.

If I solve the Joshua mystery I will let you know.

I think there are two Joshua Haddens of about the same age in the same area. This is really confusing & I probably have some errors in my research. Amanda Thompson did marry a Hadden, but it is unclear to me if it was one of the Joshuas or another Hadden all together.

I'd like to discuss with you the possibility that Lucinda Coplin's mother was named Elizabeth. I have been working on my Coplin family tree, and I am pretty convinced that Lucinda is the oldest daughter of Elizabeth Coplin. I live in Georgia.

My great, great grandfather was Charles or Charlie Hadden from Cuthbert, GA married to Fannie but not sure about Fannie's surname. I was told from my mother that Charles/Charlie Hadden departed Cuthbert, GA in the late 1800s and moved to Louisiana. I cannot locate information from either destination leading me to wondering if he was originally from Georgia or just passing through.

This is out of the blue but my grandmother was a Hadden from Werns, Georgia. I've just started looking up information about our family tree and came across this thread. Allean Hadden is my grandmother. She had a brother named Learod Hadden of Dearing, Ga born in 1927. Have you come across any of these names in your research?

Hi, in 2001 you were looking for your gggrandfather's parents. Have you found any info? I'm looking for the same family genealogy info.

My husband's grandfather was James L. Hadden (Irene Gilliam-Hadden, wife).

Let me know what you're found. I'm putting together info on my husband's family tree for our children.

I have more info on Irene Gilliam Hadden (family going back to her father & mother) than James L. Hadden's family.
