Fidelia Crippen was born June 12, 1828, in New York state, and died at her home near Kingsley March 21, 1922, at the age of nearly 94 years. Both her parents died when she was but five years of age and she was cared for by a sister, with whom she moved to Michigan, where at the age of nineteen years she was united in marriage to George W. Hollister. To this union was born three children, two of which died in infancy. The third, Mrs. Melinda J. Stewart, is now a resident of Tulsa, Okla. After the death of Mr. Hollister, she moved to Moline, Ill., where she was later united in marriage with Freeman W. Walden, February 22, 1856, and to them was born seven children, five boys and two girls. One of the boys died in infancy, the daughters both passing away after reaching maturity. The four sons now living are Chas. E. Walden, of Washta, Iowa, D. W. Walden, Manson, Iowa, and M. B. and Ira T., of Kingsley. Mrs. Walden came with her husband and family to Iowa in 1862 and located in Benton county, coming to Plymouth county in the spring of 1892, locating on a farm northwest of Kingsley, where she resided until the time of her death. About five years ago she had a fall which injured her so seriously that from that time she was an invalid, although she retained her mental faculties to the last, and during that time was a great reader.
