Westmoreland County, Rostraver Twp. Haydens

This is from a handwritten list I made in 1969 from a family Bible listing birth dates for some of the Hayden family. The Bible is currently not to be found. Some typos were made in transcribing from the Bible. I've noted corrections in brackets where I've caught them, others may exist. I was all of 15 when I wrote the original, and didn't know the value of what I had; on the other hand, I'm glad at least I have this much because the Bible has been misplaced.

Thanks to Chuck and Chris VanKirk, Karen Moorhead, and Merle Ray for all their corrections and additional information.

*Zerah Hayden - November 25, 1783 [This is Nathaniel's son]
Martha Hayden - April 1, 1787 [This is Martha McClure, Zerah's first wife]
*Cornele [Cornelia] Hayden - December 23, 1791 [This is Cornelia Stewart, Zerah's second wife]

[Abbiann married Hiram Edmundson, b. Aug. 19, 1832.
I note that he died Dec. 22, 1883, but I'd scratched that out and wrote June 8, 1884. Karen Moorhead sent a detailed summary of the murder(!) of Hiram on Dec. 22, 1883. His body wasn't found until June 1884]
