Doug Warden

Surnames: WARDEN

Query: My great-great grandparents, William Warden and Lucinda Rogers Warden, migrated to Barry County/Benton County around 1858 from Hawkins County/Hancock County Tennessee. They came in a wagon train with Lucinda's brother and his family, Grandville Patton Rogers, William Warden's sister and her family, Jane Warden Stakely and her husband George Stakely (they settled in Lawrence County around Mt. Vernon) and a number of Edens, who were the brothers of Granville Rogers' wife. I read one narrative about the move on the internet. It was written by a descendant of James Sons, Sr. and his family. William Warden's brother had already migrated to Barry County/Benton County. His name was John Warden and his wife was Mary Givens, the daughter of John Givens, a Baptist preacher who came to this area with his family in 1855. Mary Givens Warden died about 1860, probably in childbirth or diphtheria in Burdine, Texas County, Missouri. I believe that my grandfather, William Warden is buried in Ruddick Cemetery near Garfield AR, though I cannot find a headstone for him. I've talked with the caretaker of the cemetery and he says the early records are lost. Anyone with knowledge of this family, please contact me.
