What a beautiful photo! This is the house in which my Great Grandmother, Sarah Hewlett Jackson (b. 9 Feb 1835, d. unknown) grew up. She married my Great Grandfather, Nehemiah Hayden (b. 1 Dec 1819, d. 1 Feb 1901) on 28 January 1857. Her daughter, my Grandmother, Jeanette Denton Hayden Sears (b. 18 Jun 1868, Great Neck, L.I., NY, d. 22 Dec 1960, Bernardsville, NJ) wrote a story, "Little Great Grandmother", about her mother, Sarah Hewlett Jackson Hayden, for my cousin, Cathie Sears (now Sims), for her 9th birthday. It is a marvelous story, apparently true, about Sarah's life in this house around 1840. To read this story, go to:
