Birth: Aug. 16, 1809
Lee County
Virginia, USA
Death: Oct. 23, 1880
Falls County
Texas, USA

He was the son of John "Jack" C. HYDEN and Elizabeth BRASHEARS Hyden. He Was married twice the first marriage was to Eliza Carter, the second was to Nancy Duff LOCKHEART Hyden.

First Marriage:1830
Eliza Carter
They had four children
George Rice Hyden (1831-1904 age 73)
John "Jackie" Milton Hyden (1835-1861 age 26)
Granville H. Hyden (1839-Unknown)
Mary Jane Hyden (1842-1885 age 43)

Sam ran off with Nancy in 1942 according to Granville they never seen their father again. So for this reason I have serious doubts that America could be his child as her birth is listed as 1844, as for Virgina she is actually the daughter of Nancy and Samuel and is listed as such below.

Second Marriage:December 25, 1842
Nancy Duff LOCKHART-Hyden
They had six children
Nancy "Nan" Jane HYDEN Hood (1843-1934)
Whitten "Whit" Wilson Hyden (1845-1917)
Virginia Hyden (1848-Unknown)
Sarah "Sallie" Lee Hyden (1850-1922)
James "Will" William Hyden (1852-1929)
David Monroe Hyden (1855-1952)

During the Tribal Council Sam's native blood came into question. During the trials of David Monroe Hyden and James William "JW" Hyden. Two of Sam's son's Granville and George with his first wife Eliza. Testified that they had no knowledge of any native blood in the family line. They did not want it known that they had native blood and therefore, prevented David and JW and their family's from enrollment with the Choctaw Tribe. Whit and his family had already gone through their trial and were successful in their enrollment. Judge Foote did try to have him and his family removed. He was unsuccessful. There is a lot more to this family then meets the eye. We are a proud Bunch.

Thank you to my distant cousin Candice for her passion and dedication to help preserve our family history!
