Welcome to the new name addition FIRDEN. There may not be many decendants of this family name, but if you are I would love to hear from you! This seems to be a rare name for I rarely come across it.
I am the gr, gr grandaughter of Joseph Hiram Firden. He was born in 1810, where? Lived in West Elizabeth, PA in the 1860 census. Was married 2 times no info on wives. Had 12 children all to 1st wife.
My gr, grandfather was George William Firden, born in Jackson Co. WV (then VA)in the late 1840's. The 1860 census states this. m.Lakeleah Smith of West Elizabeth, PA. children, Della(my grandmother), Garnet, Clyde, and others. I have a long list of names, with some date confirmations thru public records. Thank You, KIM
