Dona Akin Hayden
Birth: Nov. 27, 1901
Aurora
Lawrence County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jun. 20, 2003
Joplin
Jasper County
Missouri, USA

Daughter of Richard Leslie Akin b.17 Oct 1868 in Burkesville, Cumberland County, KY and d.7 Oct 1932 in Joplin, Jasper County, MO and Elizabeth Francis (Turner) Akin b.20 Oct 1875 in Webster County, MO and d.20 Aug 1930 in Carl Junction, Twin Groves, Jasper County, MO.

Dona was the 3rd child and daughter of Elizabeth Francis Turner (Akin) and Richard Leslie Akin, who was previously married to Caladonia Pendleton on 18 Aug 1889 and died in 1891, with which he had one son, Carl Lee Akin b.18 May 1890.

Dona married twice in her life.

First Spouse:
Harry Franklin Magoon b.18 Mar 1898 in IL, m.18 Dec 1920, in Joplin, MO, and d.Oct 1981 in Carl Junction, MO. They had no children.

Second Spouse:
William Marshal Hayden, nicknamed Jack, on 16 Nov 1902 in Seneca, MO, m.27 Sep 1924 in Joplin, MO, and died in 11 Jun 1958 in Joplin.

Children:
Clara E. Hayden, b.31 Oct 1935 in Carl Junction, MO and d.15 Jun 1997 in Joplin, MO.
Married: Allen Ensor abt 1945
I would suspect that Clara's middle name was Elizabeth, but I never heard it mentioned.

Dona and her husband Jack took in my father, Robert Lee Akins, after the tragic railroad death of his father Carl Lee Akin/Akins, half brother of Dona, in 1942. My father was 17 at the time. My father shortly afterwards enlisted in the U.S. Navy on 3 Jun 1943 and entered WW2. He was always very close to Dona.

Dona and Jack are buried side by side.
