  • Notes 
    • BRYDEN WILLIAM was born in the Parish of Eskdalemuir, Dumfriesshire, Scotland, August 30, 1801, and is the son of James Bryden, Esq., of Burnclugh (Burncleuch), and Mary Scott, both of the same parish. Mr. Bryden, Sr., was raised on the farm, received such education as the district afforded, and afterwards attended classes at Edinburgh College for four years; acted as tutor for two years, and then for three years conducted a private school at Birkenhead, in England; thence returning to his native country, worked a farm for eleven years, under lease, and in the year 1838 immigrated to this country, landing at New York after a tedious passage of nine weeks. Staying for short periods in Cincinnati and New Richmond, O., he came with his family to Princeton, Ind., where he taught in the Gibson County Seminary for three years, and in 1842 came to Peoria county, settling in the following year in Hallock township; rented a farm for four years, and then purchased his present home, where he has since resided, and where he owns about 145 acres of land, worth about $8,000. He married in 1825, Miss Elizabeth, daughter of James Jardine, of Artleton, Dumfriesshire, by whom he has had seven children; five survive and reside in his neighborhood. Their names are Mary Scott, James, Ellen, William, and Jessie. Mrs. Bryden died on the homestead January 29, 1870.
