Circa 1880s photo of Mary Walden
Posted by: Paul Peterson (ID *****2235) Date: August 22, 2009 at 10:53:13
  of 2505

I purchased the subject undated studio portrait taken by J. G. Brayton, Napa, CA. It is identified on the back in period handwriting:

"Mary Walden --
dau. of Russell Walden
who was brother of J B Walden I."

I have not found Russell Walden recorded in the Census data, however, he is included in some public member trees posted on Born 4 Sep 1822 in NY, he was the son of John Eggleston Walden (1796-1832) and Lydia Graves Sleeper (1802-1850). I found one of his younger brothers, Jerome Bonoparte Walden, born 20 Mar 1829 in NY, listed in the 1870 Census data for Napa Township, Napa Co., CA; and the 1880 Census data for Napa City, Napa Co., CA.

I found Mary E. Walden listed under her married name, Bowman, in the 1880 Census data for Napa City, Napa Co., CA. Born about 1849 in MI, at the time of the 7 Jun 1880 enumeration, she was widowed and living with her daughter, Hattie M. Bowman, born about 1871 in CA, and her widowed mother, Isabel Walden (maiden name unknown), born about 1830 in NY. Mary and Isabel were employed as dress makers.
