[#2] i. Col. John, b. 26 Apr 1760, d. 19 Jun 1819, m. Isabella ELLIOTT; ii. Mary, b. 15 May 1764, d. 17 Apr 1796, m. Edward JACKSON; iii. Rebecca "Becca", b. about 1766, m. John JACKSON [Jr.]. iv.

David HADDON [Sr.] constructed the Fort Haddon that stood on Becca's Creek, now in Randolph Co., WV.
Some secondary sources without documentation claim that David HADDON [Sr.] had a first wife before he married Rebecca BARR. We have not seen any primary evidence for that. However, the gap in birth dates of his children between 1766 and 1781 might suggest that he did.
