From the Friday, 31 July 1896 Culver City Herald:
John Louden, better known as Grandfather Louden, died at the residence of his son Marvin Louden in this place last Sunday afternoon. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Christian church, preaching by Rev. Fence. The remains were laid to rest in Poplar Grove Cemetery. He was one of the first settlers of our county, having lived here for fifty years. If he had lived a few months longer he would have been ninety-two years old, an age but few people ever achieve.
