James Were you able to obtain the book on Elisha Wallen/Walling? My Great Grandfather was D. George "Bud" Walden, born 1862 and was from the Madison County,NC, area. He married Linda viola Shelton, daughter of Elizabeth Metcalf Shelton. Linda and Bud Walden moved from NC to SC around 1900. I am trying to determine the parentage of Bud Walden. Do you find any information in the book where the name may have evolved into WALDEN?
