He was the son of Clement and Mary (Humphrey) Hayden, both born in Maine. He married Lovina Ames, April 13, 1837, and was the father of eight children, of whom three served in the Union Army, the oldest, Alonzo, C. being killed at the battle of Gettysburg, and bur. at Nat'l Cem. in Gettysbury, PA.
Rev. Hayden was ordained at Mayfield, ME in 1838, ten years after his conversion. In Maine he labored for some time as a home missionary. His ministry was attended with many revivals and several churches were organized. In 1856, because of impaired health he went to Minnesota, where he organized a church at Champlin and was pastor of the Minneapolis church.
He served in the Maine Legislature in 1854, and later in the Minnesota Territorial and State Legislatures, and was the only member of the Minnesota Constitutional Convention that voted against excluding the black man from the ballot.
After many years of usefulness he passed to his rest, Feb. 8, 1886, widely lamented.
