It is now time to move my research on to the next generation. However, before doing so, I will make two final posts for senior – this one to summarize by findings to date and a second to show where additional research could be focused.

While exploring the letters of Charles S. Marden I learned that Charles believed his great great grandfather, Edward Marden, had served as a Minute Man in April of 1775. Could it be true and if so could it lead to Edward’s family?
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.
