I am researching the Hadaways of Kent Co., MD. In particular, I'm looking for the parents of Joseph Ashley Hadaway. According to his death certificate, he was born in Kent Co., MD, on 15 Feb 1864, son of George and Elizabeth Ashley Hadaway. He died in Baltimore on 16 Aug 1946. According to family stories, he had sisters Elizabeth and Sadie, and a brother George, who had a farm in Quaker Neck Wharf, MD.
I've looked in census records, but cannot find a George with a wife named Elizabeth, or a Joseph, son of George. I've found George, son of George. And in later censuses, I can find the two Georges living in Kent Co. But I cannot find Joseph Hadaway in census records before 1900, unless you consider a Joseph Hadaway, born in 1860, living with his uncle Joseph Cornelius in Kennedyville, Kent Co., MD, in the 1880 census.
As for later info on Joseph Hadaway, he married Lydia Rhea Brown on 28 Aug 1888, in Chestertown, Kent Co., MD. They had 11 children: Edith R., Ida, Sadie P., Jospeh Warren, Jennie C., Myrtle R., Emma G., George W., Lillian Marie, Earl E., and Daniel T.
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!
