    • Theodore Roosevelt was President of the Board of Police Commissioners in New York from May 6, 1895 to April 19, 1897; Roosevelt left this position to join the Rough Riders where, as a commander, he "became a national hero in the Spanish-American war" and went on to become the 26th President in 1901.)

      It is not clear why these letters were retained by the family. Perhaps these are copies of orignals? Or perhaps they were never delivered? The letters are authored by what appears to be James' previous employers G. Beckman Hoppin and Mr. Reilly (if I have transcribed the letter properly). One of the envelopes shows the address for G. Beckman Hoppin as 47 West Fifty Third Street. In fact, the 1894 - 95 NYC Directory includes a listing for "Gerard B. Hoppin, a clerk" at this address.

    New York City Policeman 
    • In March 2001 I contacted the NYPD at One Police Plaza. They located a pension card belonging to Patrolman James E. Hayden which corresponds closely to the information already uncovered about James Hayden. The pension card shows that Patrolman Hayden was born 17 January 1876 and became a police officer at age 26. He served with the department from June 14, 1902 until October 29, 1925. Furthermore, the pension card shows that his wife's name was Clara and they had one daughter, Bertha. He retired 29 October 1925 after serving for more than 23 years; he was 49 years old. According to the records, at retirement he had "no dependent parents;" this is consistent with the fact that both Mary and Edward Hayden died prior to 1910. His address is listed as 4537 Richardson Avenue in the Bronx; following his death on the 12 September 1952, death benefits were mailed to a "Lillian M." at this same address.

    • Since the children Bertha (b Abt. 1906) and Alfred (b Abt. 1907) were children from Clara's first marriage, Clara and James Hayden must have been married after 1907. The 1920 Census shows that they were married. So they must have married between 1907 and 1920. [9, 11]
