I will start with the most reliable source I have found. United States Census, 1880, Lincoln Township, Holt County, Missouri (Supervisor Dist. 7, Enumeration Dist. 21, p.9). The Louden Family is Dwelling 66, Household 78 and start on line 11 Here is how they are listed:

-Louden, Green, Head of household, 58, Farmer, born Kentucky, Father born Kentucky, Mother born Kentucky.
-Anna (note: her name was Indiana), 43, Wife, born Missouri (note: actually born in Illinois), Father born Kentucky (note: actually he was born in West Virginia), Mother born New Jersey.
-Green, 21, Son, Farmer, born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother born Missouri.
-Malinda, 16, Daughter, born Missouri, father born Kentucky, Mother born Missouri.
-Jacob, 15, Son, born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother born Missouri.
-Jeptha (note: name hard to read in census), 12, Son, Born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother born Missouri.
-ALVESSA, 10, Daughter, born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother Born Missouri.
-Allen, 7, Son, born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother born, Missouri.
-ELY, 5, Son, born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother born Missouri.
-Taylor, 3, Son, born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother born Missouri.
-(name unreadable, probably Emmett), 6/12, Son, born Missouri, Father born Kentucky, Mother born Missouri.

Family members not listed with the family in this census:
-Eugene, born 1854, died in 1872
-William, born 1856, died in 1876
-John, born abt. 1860, died bef. 1870
-Ann, born abt. 1862, likely married (would have been 18)
-Thomas, not born until 1882

The parents full names are Green Berry Louden (born 5/22/1822 in Henry Co., KY) and Indiana Eliza (Moser) Louden (born 9/14/1837 in Illinois. The descrepancies in the census record occurred because the person giving the census taker the information (likely Green) gave erroneous information.

Holt Co. Missouri (right across the Missouri River from Doniphan Co., KS) was the home of the Loudens from 1852 until the around the time of the death of Indiana in 1915. To my knowlwdge, there are no Loudens in Holt Co. today.

I have a little more information on the Loudens, and a lot more on the Mosers. If you e-mail me directly with what info. you would like, I should be able to supply you with as much as I can.
