Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 299, Honey Creek Township, White County, Indiana.

"ANDERSON T. VIRDEN was born in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, December 5, 1846, and is the eldest of the five children born to STRATTON and LOUISA (THOMPSON) VIRDEN. He was educated at the common schools and at the Farmer's Institute of Tippecanoe County, and until twenty-eight years old was employed on the home farm. In the spring of 1873, his father gave him an interest in forty acres of land in Big Creek Township, this county (White County, Indiana), which interest he sold in 1875, and came to this Township (Honey Creek Township), where he bought 120 acres of unimproved land, on which he still resides, and which he has ever since cultivated. September 23, 1874, he married MARY E. ANDERSON, a native of Clark County, Ohio, who has borne him three children - OLIVER M., FLETCHER S., and ANNA LEE. In politics, Mr. Virden is a Republican, and both himself and wife are consistent members of the M. E. Church."
