Notes for Capt. Simon Hadley
Captain Simon Hadley's family cannot be traced at present.

He resided in Cumberland County until 1805 and had three children. He had large property interests and in 1792 or 1793 paid $30,000.00 for land near his father's old home. He may have lost his family in an epidemic that occurred in Fayettville in 1805, as his brother Thomas and his wife both died in one week.

Both Captain Simon and Benjamin, as well as Jesse, moved to the South. Captain Simon sold his body-servant to his sister, Mary (Hadley) England, and moved to Georgia and then to Alabama. 894

************************

From the Cane Creek Minutes filed in the Graham (N. C.) court house was taken the following: "smo. 7, 1779. The preparative meeting enters a complaint against Simon and Joshua Hadley, sons of Thomas Hadley, in that they have joined in the present commotion, so far as to appear in a warlike manner (i.e., a military uniform) which is contrary to Friends' principles. This meeting agrees to show their disunity with them in their disorderly proceedings and here-by minutes them no members of our Society until they reform and suitably condemn the same, which is our desire they may. The Clerk is appointed to send them a copy of this minute and sign it on behalf of this meeting."894
