Looking for info on Rueben Carden (my great grandfather) b. October 25, 1878 died August 25, 1954. Married Lucy A. Carden. I heard he had a half brother Cecil Carden who spent a lot of time researching the Carden Family. My pawpaw (Russell Carden) and Rueben Carden are both buried in Pollard cemetery in Alabama. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.

Al. in 1900. the children i have for them are ...Ruben Jr., Marcus, Ollie, Nick,R.C.,Johnny........would love to hear from you soon we have a family reunion coming up in Oct.

My grandfather is Ermon Russell carden, born in Shelby county alabama, his father was Aaron, and his mother was Liza jane, i know he had a brother named charlie.When Charlie died Ermon married his widow whose name was Frances. I know that Liza Jane remarried several times, once to a man named Jasper. I don't know much about Aaron and am not having much luck. Do any of these names ring a bell?

i was going to reply through Ancestry.com but they are down for maintance....so

1850 Polk Co. Tn. census
Reuben, Rebecca....we've always been told Racheal
Sarah A.
Tabitha
John
Lenard
James K.P.
Martha A.D.
Malinda

1860 Murray Co. Ga. Militia Dist 1013

Reuben, Racheal
John
Leonard
James K.P.
Martha A.D.
Malinda

Sarah and Tabitha had already married by this time....
Sarah married William Carr and Tabitha married Hardy Maddox.
Leonard and James K.P. both died during the war.

Racheal is not in the 1870 census making us believe that she may have died. the only Reuben Carden i have been able to find in the 1870 Ga. census in Murray Co. is living with a Sarah Kline/Cline family....we have no idea if these people are just friends or if they may be some of Racheal's people as we have no maiden name for her.but we do know this Kline/Cline family were moving back and forth between Ga. and Al. by the places of births of their children.

Sarah Carden Carr and family were neighbors of John and Mary Malinda " Mollie" in Wayne Co. Mo. in 1870 with John and Mollie with only 1 child at that time, my g-grandpa James Polk Carden. 1 yr. old born in Mo.

hope this helps
