    1833 Elections 
    • Atterson Walden, resident of Harrodsburg Precinct, cast vote for Robert Letcher in election for U.S. Congressman between Letcher, a Whig, and Thomas Moore, a Jackson Republican, to represent the 5th District of Kentucky in the U.S. House of Representatives

      To vote in this election, one had to be a free male, 21 years old, a resident of the state for 2 years, or of the county and town for 1 year, and actually reside in place voting.
      (Thus, looks like Atterson was over in Mercer County at least in 1832)

      This election was contested, and the US House refused to sit either candidate, but instead ordered a new election. Letcher prevailed in that new election.

    Individual Note Biography 
    • The following information can be found in Kentucky: A History of The State, 1887, by Perrin-Battle-Kniffin, 1032-1033.

      "ATTERSON LEWIS WALDEN was born September 26, 1803, in Caroline County, Va.; removed with his parents in 1805 to Lincoln County, Ky., in 1808 to Garrard County, and in 1833 to Mercer County, locating on Cane Run pike, two and one-half miles east of Harrisburg, where he has since resided. His father, John Walden, a native of Virginia, enlisted at the age of eighteen years in the Continental Army, and remained until the close of the war. He was a farmer and slave-holder, and died aged eighty-five years. He was the son of Lewis Walden, and married Elizabeth Pitts, of Virginia (died in 1854, aged seventy-six years), and from their union sprang Sophia (Douglas), Atterson L., Willis, Melinda (Simpson), Permelia, Payton, John, Elizabeth (Samson) and Angelina (Adams).
      Atterson Lewis Walden was first married in 1825, to Miss Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas McGinnis, of Mercer County (born in 1802, died in 1877), and to them were born Elizabeth (Lander), Mary (Thompkins), Frances (Prather), Angeline (Garnett) and Theresa I.
      In 1859 he was married to Mrs. Maria S. Meglone, daughter of William W. and Frances (Sebree) Sharp, of Lexington (born May 15, 1820). Montgomery and Maria S. Meglone's children are Whitney and Mary (Hutchinson).
      A. L. Walden has been president of the Mercer County Agricultural Association for twenty years. He is a farmer, having 220 acres of productive land, but lost forty-two slaves as a result of the late war. Thomas McGinnis, from the fort at Harrodsburg, pre-empted and settled this place. There is now living, but on the decline, on this farm, a seedling apple tree of his planting, fully one hundred years old, nearly twelve feet in circumference, which has never failed to bear an annual crop since it came into bearing. In politics Mr. Walden is Democrat."
    Individual Note Early Life 
    • Atterson in all likelihood grew up in Garrard County. His father John Walden owned property and a house in Garrard County, south of Lancaster, on the Crab Orchard Road (present-day State Highway 39).
      On the 1810 census, John Walden is listed with three males residing in his household: two under the age of 10 and one over the age of 45. Atterson would be one of the ones listed under the age of 10; his brother Willis would be the other one

      John Walden is enumerated on the 1820 census as residing in Garrard County. The census record, however, does not correspond with what we know of the family.
