Hi Gary,
As my time was short, I went in to the White County Clerk's office to find and get copies of the record numbers I found on the secretary of state's website. I hadn't found a Charles Jones for White County or the surrounding area, so I didn't have anything to go on nor enough time to spend there (I was exploring w/ my father who was also in town visiting family).
Besides the White County Democrat there was (and is) the Carmi Times. I believe there was also the Carmi Tribune but think it merged by 1914 with the Times (sometimes seen as the Carmi Tribune Times). I believe there has only been the Carmi Times since the 1920s.
As for Hadden Cemetery, head north out of Carmi on 5th Street, becoming the Centerville Road. You will come to an extended S-curve, bending first to the right. When it bends back to the left, you will come upon a cross road (CR 1700, I think). Turn right and Hadden Cemetery is on your right a very short distance. When we went by there entrance was chained off to vehicles. We walked in and found few stones (my dad began remembering being there as a kid, and thought there had been more). Most were difficult to read. Only able to find and read one Jones... a maiden name of a Hadden. I'm hoping my brother, who lives in Carmi, will check with the Township Board to see the plot-map to determine where Hannah is buried, and hopefully next to her Charles and when he was interred.
Hope this answers your questions. Perhaps you will uncover more than I was able to in my short visit. I'm interested to hear what you can find. Good luck.
