I have been looking for Golden/Orender for a number of years.Joel and Elizabeth Golden Orender are my gg grandparents. Joel, according to a cousin, was a circuit preacher. Their daughter Mahulda married Rench Angle when she was 15.Rench was a 49er.I visited their ranch, now a church property and once home to the race horse Sea Biscuit. Their oldest daughter, Euphrasia Jane, married Charles Aldrich from CT.Their youngest child was my father, James Merritt Aldrich.He came to MA to go to school and remained here.
I am fascianted that there is a family Bible, according to Bill Orender.Does anyone know the origin of the name, where they came from originally?There is a great Site on the Golden name that traces the Goldens back to County Tyrone in Ireland.
