Walden, my grandfather, came out to Oregon with the big train of 1845….the Waldens were settled in the Waldo hills, six miles east of Salem.  There a home was built and in it was born John Walden….By 1871 John Walden set up a family domicile near Weston and there Ernest E. Walden was born.  In due time, Ernest Walden took a shine to Nellie Purdy, over Athena way.  She belonged to the same Purdy clan which at one time operated Bingham springs…”]
