Biography of Louis Hadden
Adams County, NE Biographies





Louis Hadden, who owns a valuable farm in Blaine township, was born in Kendall county, Illinois, on the 28th of October, 1854, and attended the common schools there until he was sixteen years of age. Subsequently he was a student in the Jennings Seminary at Aurora, Illinois, and after completing his education worked for his father until 1880. In that year he came westward, settling in Seward county, Nebraska, where he purchased a farm which he operated for two years. At the end of that time he sold that place and removed to Illinois, devoting two years to farming his father's land. In 1885 he came to Adams county, Nebraska, and for two years rented a farm three miles southwest of Hastings. He saved his money with the intention of buying land and in 1887 purchased his present farm in Blaine township, three miles northeast of Hastings. He has since resided there and as the years have passed has brought the farm to a high state of development. He seldom fails to gather good crops and has never had occasion to regret his choice of an occupation.

Mr. Hadden was married in Aurora, Kane county, Illinois, in 1882 to Miss Hattie Tiffany, of Chicago, and they have three children. Lula, who was born in 1883 in Kane county, Illinois, married Guy Eastman, a banker of Mitchell, Nebraska; by whom she has three children. Glen M., who was born in Kendall county, Illinois, in 1885, is living with his parents. Bessie, who was born in 1889 in Adams county, Nebraska, married Arthur Eastwood, a hardware merchant of Morrill, by whom she has a son and daughter.

Mr. Hadden votes the republican ticket and for two terms served as township school director. Fraternally he is connected with the Modern Woodmen of America. He has based his success upon hard work and careful management and his career indicates what may be accomplished by persistent and well planned industry.
