F. W. Walden Dies
Was An Old Resident of Union Township
Kingsley News-Times: Freeman W. Walden was born in Cattaraugas county, New York November 11, 1835, and died at his home near Kingsley, Iowa, January 19, 1918, aged 82 years 2 months and 8 days. He was the seventh son of the family. At his birth his mother died after which neighbors took him to their home and raised him as their child. When seventeen years of age he came west as far as Moline, Ill., where he lived for three years. The last year he lived in Moline he married Mrs. Fidelia Cripping Hollister. Seven children were born to this union. After their marriage the couple moved to a farm north of Rockford, Illinois, where they lived six or eight years. Fifty-five or fifty-six years ago they moved to Benton county, Iowa and in 1886 they moved to Woodbury county, Iowa, and have lived in northwest Iowa ever since. In 1892 they moved onto the farm that has been their home ever since.
The last sickness of Mr. Walden has been of considerable duration but was not thought serious until a few days before his death. The funeral was conducted from the home by Rev. F. W. Wilson, of the M. E. church, in Kingsley, and the burial was in the cemetery in Union township.
