Southern Christian Advocate, 16 October 1862, v25, #40, p160, c15:
"Owen H R Carden was born 1820 and died in the Hospital at Atlanta, GA in July 1862.
He joined the Missionary Baptist Church in 1853. He was upright in his dealings, was an affectionate husband, a kind father and punctual in attending his meetings. After he became a member of the army he tried to adorn the profession he had made, and was truly a shining light in the touted field. Hence we feel that he has gone to the home of the good, where the dig of war will be heard no more. R A Timmons"
