Newspaper Tidbit: Ann Letitia (Dunnington) Hayden

Evening Bulletin (Mayville, KY)
July 10, 1901

Mrs. Ann Letitia Hayden celebrated her seventy-sixth birthday Sunday, July 17th, 1901.  She was born in Prince William County, Virginia, in the year 1826, and is a daughter of William P. Dunnington, deceased, a celebrated physician who for many years practiced in Bourbon County, Ky., having his drug store and residence in Millersburg.  There were three boys in the family, William, John and James, all of whom were famous physicians.  Dr. John, now deceased, married and located at Mayslick, where he built up a fine practice.  His unerring judgment in diagnosing disease and skill in applying the proper remedies was a never ending source of wonder to his confreres.  A physician of this State who knew him said recently:  "He was one of the best doctors by far in the State, if not the best."  James died at Mattoon, Ills., and William is living in Missouri.  The subject of this sketch is in full possession of her faculties, is as active as a girl of sixteen and bids fair to live many years.

[Mrs. Hayden, the widow of E. G. Hayden, passed away in her 95th year in 1920 ~cgl]
