Descendants of John Walden of Virginia

Generation #1

John (0Dad) Walden of Virginia (Conjecture)

Alexander Walden of Greene Co GA was born in 1748 in Goochland Co VA. The search for Alexander's father leads us to either a John or a Richard Walden who were cited in the 1747 Goochland Tax List.

John Walden was born in about 1720 in Virginia. The first record for John is a 1742 court case. And, the last record is the 1747 Goochland Co VA Tax List. Nothing more is known about John at this time. 

Goochland Co VA Court Order Book 5 (1741-1745), p. 79:
Napier vs. Walden. On the Petition of Elizabeth Napier agt. John Walden the summons being returned Executed and Deft. failing to Appear it is thereupon Considered that the Petitioner do recover agt. the Deft. forty-one shillings and seven pence Current money due by Account proved with Costs.
