On August 19, 1887, Tranquilla J. Haden gave to
the Poplar Ridge community 1.5 acres at this
site for a cemetery later to be called Hayden.
The site had been used as a cemetery since
as early as 1858. The cemetery expanded to 5.1
acres through gifts and purchases from Horatio
& Sallie Smith. Howard & Ada Smith, Carl &
Betty Worley, adn Bobby Connally. During the
construction of interstate 65 in 1968, remains
from the Collier Cemetery in Limestone
County were reinterred at Hayden. On June 4,
1985, a perpetual care organization was
created with officers and trustees to ensure
the cemetery continued to serve
southeast Madison County.
