He married Mrs. Frances (Reed) Kimball of Chelsea about 1887, and they had one son who drowned at the age of 11 years. He was a teamster in Charlestown and greater Boston until he came to this town.
Mr. Walden was a member of Sedgwick Post, G.A.R., having served with a Maine regiment in the Civil War. Besides his wife and step-son, he leaves one brother, Augustus Walden of Chelsea.
The funeral will be held in Bond and Sons Undertaking rooms, Brattleboro at 3:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. C. Walter Bishop of South Newfane officiating, and the burial will take place in Prospect Hill Cemetery, Brattleboro.
