"Pioneer Preacher of Nebr"
OBITUARY OF ANDREW L. FOLDEN (paper unknown)

Born April 20, 1824, in Monroe County, Virginia. Died at 10 a.m. Tuesday, December 12, 1911, at the residence of Cloyd Steele, in Nebraska City, Nebraska, age 87 years 7 months and 22 days.
The death of Rev. Folden takes away the most widely known minister and pioneer citizen of this part of the state. His health had been failing for several years on account of kidney trouble and old age, and several months ago there were unmistakable signs that his long and useful life would soon come to a close.
At his bedside when the end came were several relatives among them his only brother and sister --- Wm. A. Folden and of Beatrice and Mrs. Elizabeth Calvert of Glenwood, Iowa.
The remains were brought from Nebraska City on the Wednesday evening train, and at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon the funeral services were held in the Methodist Church, conducted by Rev. Randall of Nebraska City, and the interment was in the cemtery west of this village.
The pallbearers were W. H. Mark, Wm. McCarroll, W. L. Taylor, Dan Lynn, William Stine and Oregon Douge. Andrew L. Folden's native state was Virginia, but when he was a little child his parents moved to Indiana, where he grew to manhood and was married in 1846, to Elizabeth J. Calvert. They moved to Mills County, Iowa, in 1850, and in 1854 they came to Nebraska and settled in Old Wyoming, a few miles southeast of here.
He was licensed as a minister in 1857 and his first appointment was in Johnson County, and since that time he has engaged in chuch work continuously until a short time ago. His wife died in this village Nov. 25, 1904.
Rev. Folden's highest aim in this life was to lead his fellowmen along the line of true Christianity, and in his death the Christian world has lost an able and willing advocate, and the community has lost a valuable and highly esteemed citizen.
