Samuel Alden was born about 1839 in Medina, Ohio. He was in in Brown County, MN in 1870 age 31; age 21 in 1857 in Blue Earth, MN. His sisters papers seem to point to Samuel living in Oregon shortly befor her death in 1925. She had a brother, Florence, who lived in Idaho and Washington also. Samuel did serve in the civil war, but could not get a pension paper. Would like to know more about this uncle.
