HADY, SAMUEL C. (?–1842). Samuel C. Hady (Haddy, Heddy), one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, received title to a sitio of land on August 19, 1824, in what later became Waller County. The census of March 1826 classified him as a farmer and stock raiser aged between twenty-five and forty. His household included his wife, Nancy, a son, and three daughters. Hady died before February 1842, when the Austin County probate court appointed William Kelly administrator of the Hady estate.
