I am looking for any and all references to my ggrandparents history.
I think some of the birth locations in our family Bible might shed some light on the Harrison Cnty, KY, Waldens.
Also, I belive that Lily Ann Gatewood, wife of John Walden, is James Madison Walden's mother.
Virginia Marriage Index, 1740-1850
JAMES M.WALDEN/LUCY BRAGG 21 November Kanawha
My family Bible has: "James M. Walden, son of John and Lel??? Walden" was born
in "Spotsylvania, Cty. Virginia, September 16th 1811". d." Plattsmouth MO 1861" & in Matie's handwriting,. M. on 11-21-1833 in Teayses Valley, Kanawha Cty Virginia to Lucy Ann Bragg (daughter of Thomas S and
Elizabeth Bragg) b. 9-11-1817 in Culpeper cnty, VA d. 5-5-1909 at Brighton, Colo.)
I have Lucy Ann's Bible...this is the information from it. I have the rest of the family from Lucy Ann Bragg & James Madison Walden
Lucy Ann Bragg & James Madison Waldens's children
BORN in Teayses Valley, Kanawha Cnty, Virginia were:

d. 5/05/1909 at Brighton, CO
These folks moved alot, but their movements might indicate where other family members lived.
And then from my cousin Florence and Walden Manfull
"Do have a letter written in 1926 from Grandmother Manfull (Matie Walden) and she said her Dad died when she was four years old. Said she knew he was born in Virginia. She says she remembers her Mother (Lucy Ann Bragg Walden) saying that his home was on a high hill at the mouth of York river where it emptied into the bay. It must have been right on the bay for she said the tide came in every day..Just after they were married they moved to Kentucky near Lexington. Said she didn't know how many brothers he had. Said her Dad (James Madison Walden) had one brother she knew of named William and two sisters Rachel and Fanny. Rachel was an old maid and Fanny married a man named Hughes. Also said there were ministers on both sides of the family, Baptists on her Mothers side and Methodist on her fathers. This letter is hard to read from old age. It was written to Walt's folks when they lived in Redlands and she lived with Cy & Lucille in Glendale. She also said they lived in Missouri and moved back to Kentucky the year Lincoln was killed.
This was one of the little tidbits I found last week. Know I had read it before and you may have heard about it. Your Grandpa always said his Grandpa was killed by the Jayhawkers because he talked too much."
If anything seems familiar, please let me know.
