The six unknown children are On the 1900 Federal Census, it states that Malvina is the mother of 13 children and 7 are living. She had two more Children after 1900.

There are also three more children that are unknown to which mother they born,either Serena Ellen Adams or Malvina Todd.

Amanda ''Mandy'' Todd Bishop is Malvina's daughter before she married John. Her father is unknown.

The family name appears many different ways such as Walling,Wallen,Wallin,Walden and Waldon.

James Thomas was the first to move to Crawfordsville,Indiana and when asked how to spell his name he didn't know,so they spelled it for him ''Walden''. later more followed and my Great Grandfather Ruben arrived and was a Walden but later changed to Waldon. There are family stories of a fued about the way the name was spelled. Most of the family that remained in Kentucky are Wallin's. While growing up I only knew as far as my Great Grandparents Ruben and Edith Waldon because of the name variation.

John is my Great Great Grandfather.
