When applying for a roll number in the Indian Nation, a person had to give personal information, including parents/grandparents/siblings... I have found several Wallen / Walden applications, and I will post the information that the applicant gave. If the info isn't given, the applicant left it blank.
My Wallen family also used the name Walden; not only has Walden been found on papers, but also on a tombstone.
