Pardon WORDEN is said to have married Molly HAINES (b. 1769, d. 1859) in the mid-1790s in Sullivan County. One researcher claims she is the Molly Haines born in Weston, Ct., in 1769, but it seems equally likely she is connected to a neighboring John Floyd Haines, reported to be a Rhode Island native born around 1735.
These are the WORDEN and HAINES households on the 1790 census for Mamakating:
#254 Abiel WORDEN 1,1,2
#141 Asa WORDEN 1,4,2
#197 Paul WORDEN 1,1,3
#240 Isaac WORDEN 1,0,3
#255 Pardon WORDEN 1,2,2
#183 John Floyd HAINES 2,3,4
(Numbers = males over 16, males under 16, all females. Abial is the father of the other Wordens, and his wife is unknown, but that's a problem for another day.)
It appears from this that Pardon and Molly were already married by 1790. What church the Wordens belonged to at this time I don't know, though by the 1810s they were Primitive Baptists. They left few records.
Does anyone recognize John Floyd Haines? Or Molly?
Mamakating was in Ulster Co. at the time, wasn't it? Is that where to check land records and wills, or in Sullivan?
