I have examined four plat books, 1990, 1972, 1966, 1912 and I have been unable to locate any Hayden record in Percy or Hazelton townships. The  directory for the 1912 plat book has the following entries.

Hayden, Everet, Breeder of Thoroughbred French Percheron Horses and Shropshire Sheep, S.6, T. Percy, P.O.Bronson 1886. (refers to Section 6 of Percy Township)

Hayden, G.E. Farmer and Breeder of Gray Durham Cattle, S. 30, T. Hazelton,(refers to section 30, Hazelton Township) P.O. Bronson.  Mr. Hayden was born in England in 1852 and settled in Kittson County in 1878. He is married to Jane Smyth.  Mr. Hayden has served as Town Clerk and School Clerk for a number of years and is one of the first settlers in Kittson County.

Note - If  G.E. Hayden was in the county by 1878, he certainly was one of the very first settlers. We will continue searching and let you know if we learn anything new. It is strange that Hayden is in the directory but not recorded on the plat maps.
