Notes for Thomas Hadley
The following information regarding descendants of Joshua and Mary (Rowland) Hadley is given by Miss Rosa Rountree of Norfolk, Virginia:902

Thomas Hadley, son of Joshua and his first wife, Mary (Rowland) Hadley, moved to North Carolina soon after his marriage in 1750, and settled in Cumberland County, North Carolina, or rather in the part of Bladen County that was taken into Cumberland County when it was formed in 1754. His wife was Mary Thompson of London Grove, Penna., and their children were Jane, Joshua, John, Simon, Benjamin, Mary, Jesse and Thomas. In 1760 Thomas Hadley was living at Cross Creek, now Fayetteville, North Carolina, and with John Willcox they were the first merchants of that locality. Thomas, Hadley and his sons were very active in the Revolution, as they were ardent Whigs. He was the Representative of Campbellton, the Scotch town one mile from Cross Creek, at the Constitutional Convention held in Halifax, North Carolina, November 12th, 1776, to establish a Bill of Rights for the new government.
