B, 9th Vermont regiment, serving three years and receiving his discharge June 13, 1865. Mr. Barden married Miss Emily Harwood of Rupert December 31, 1865,and they lived in Wells for 35 years afterward, until they came to Brattleboro, which has since been their home with exception of a few years spent in Guilford. Besides his widow he leaves four daughters, Grace, wife of Walter Worden, Herberta, wife of George W. Gilman, Harriet S. and Blanche O. Barden, all of Brattleboro; one son, John H. Barden of Brattleboro; one granddaughter, Mrs. Raymond Boutelle of Southbridge, Mass., and one great-grandchild.
