  • Notes 
    • MR. WM. BRYDEN (deceased) moved from Scioto county, Ohio, to Piatt county in 1846. A distant relative of his, James Bryden, had been in the country the year before, and induced him to move there.

      He bought a farm near the head of Goose Creek, and lived on it until his death. The place is still known as the Bryden place. Mr. Bryden's eldest daughter, Mary, became the wife of Hiram Dillin, who owns a farm in Goose Creek township. She died in 1881, leaving one
      son, Robert; Katharine married James Piatt; James Bryden first married Miss E. Swain, who died, leaving one child. He next married Mary Sadorus, has several children and lives in California. Wm. Bryden, who died in 1866, married Mary J. Piatt; Robert Bryden
      recently moved to Kansas; Jack Bryden is married and lives in Kansas; Olive became the wife of Noah Piatt, and now resides in Kansas.

      Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Bryden met with a serious accident which caused his death. After the return of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Piatt from California, Mr. Bryden and his wife started to ride down to inquire about their relatives in California. When near the residence of Mr. Ezra Marquiss, their old nag became frightened and threw them from the buggy. Mr. Bryden was so injured that he died in a few hours. Mrs. Bryden was severely injured, but recovered. Her death occurred several years after that of her husband.
