In Cass paper Jan 31 1884 page 4, Sarah Hayden, wife of James Rose, died at their residence after a brief illness and was buried yesterday, she leaves on child which will for the present reside with her grandmother mrs. James Boyd. death certh certicicate 26 years TB, parents Plarry & Electra Hayden.

I noticed that there was building in cassopolis with Hayden name on it, maybe an ad, it has been quite a few years ago when I was there. It was raining heavy that day and we did not look for Sarah's grave. For some reason I think it was with other Hayden's not Roses. Most of the Roses had no stones. I think she has a stone. There at Prospect Hill. Sometimes walking the cemetery will help with family reletionships.

James was brother of my great-grandfather and none of his descendants living in IA seem to recall any contact with Edna. Sorry I am not much help. Hayden's seem to be better off than the Roses. Edna probably was much better off staying with grandmother than going to IA with her father.

Did I send you the information I had on Edna? I have a letter she wrote to my grandfather, after she was married to a Jess Brown. They had 4 chiildren. The letter is dated 1915.

I also have picture of her. Let me know if you are interested. I had forgotten about having this material.
