I am so excited by the events of the past week. I have been hearing from descendants of Edward. They are contributing information and funding. This past week I received a $25.00 donation from each of 3 different descendants. As promised, all proceeds of this blog will be used to pay for retrieving documents to assist in the project.

I have gone through the pension file and provided my readers with the important key information. If you are a descendant, I encourage you to get the entire pension file for your own records, because I am not covering everything of interest to you in this blog.
There are two other documents of interest in the file I have note yet explored. These documents are letters from a descendant, Charles S. Marden, to the Commissioner of Pensions. This same Charles Marden also has a letter published in the Annis Genealogy so I intend to cover this man and his letters together in a later post.
Today I am looking at a document in Edward’s pension file created in August of 1820. This document gives me a very interesting picture of Edward Marden as of that date. It also provides me with some family data, but unfortunately it does not give me any names or other dates of value.
Well folks, I am sorry to take so long in getting back to the blog. I wish I could say it was a relaxing break, but Mother Nature had a different plan for me. I live in Maine where we experience “Winter Weather Conditions” (WWC for short) on a regular basis this time of year. I have been doing what seems like an endless series WWC chores since last Friday!
Today I will start posting about the wonderful information found in Edward Marden’s pension record. It can be found at Footnote.com (starting at this address if you subscribe) as well as Heritage Quest and consists of 51 images. I will be posting selected documents from the file on the blog and in our genealogy database.
