FRANCIS ALEXANDER MARDEN, STAMFORD: Attorney at Law.

Francis A Barden is a native of West Windham New Hampshire, where he was born January 19, 1840, and in which place he spent his early years at the public schools. He was fitted for college at Phillips, Exeter, and Andover Academies, after which he entered Harvard University, and was graduated in 1863, taking the degree of M.A. in 1865. He taught school at Stamford, Conn., from 1863 to 1864, and studied law at Harvard Law School 1864 to 1865, and in October, 1865, was admitted to the bar in New York city. In 1866 he was married in Stamford to Miss Lillie B. Skiddy, which union has been blessed with four children. Since his marriage he has been a resident of Stamford, practicing his profession in New York city, and latterly, with his family, spending his winters in New York, his residence there being at No. 640 Madison Avenue. A democrat in politics, he has occupied various positions of trust within the gift of his party, such as delegate to state and national conventions, judge of probate for the district of Stamford, burgess of the borough, nine years member of the school committee and a representative from Stamford in the general assembly for two terms - 1876 and 1878 - when he served on the judiciary and insurance committees. He was commissary general on the staff of Governor Waller in 1883-84. At college he was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and President of the Harvard Society of Natural History. He is a member of Union Lodge, No. 5, F. and A. M., Rittenhouse Chapter, No. 11, Royal Arch Masons, Washington Council, and Clinton Commandery. Mr. Marden has recently devoted himself almost exclusively to his legal practice, which is very large and of such a character as to demand the most intelligent and careful attention.
