Robert E. Braden
Robert E. Braden was born August 7, 1867, in Kentucky. He was the son of Andrew Jackson Braden who was born in Tennessee, and Feriba Jane (Campbell) Braden who was born in Tennessee.
He came to Livingston County, Missouri with his parents about 1890. He was married to Cornelia McMillen, the daughter of John A. McMillen and Susan M. (Stone) McMillen of Livingston County. Robert and Cornelia were the parents of eight children: Vera, Neil, Edward Lester, Lucile, Susan B., Herbert, Jennie R. and Florence C. Braden.
In the census of 1900 and 1910 he owned a farm and was farming in Green Township, Livingston Co., Missouri. In 1910, his oldest daughter, Vera, was a teacher in public school. In the 1920 Census of Green Township, Livingston Co., Missouri, his daughter Lucile was the enumerator for the census (and the listings were very well written and legible). In this census, Robert E. Braden still owned his farm, but he was the Postmaster of the post office, and his son Lester was working on the farm. Robert E. and Cornelia Braden had six children living with them: Lester age 24, Lucile age 22, (who was a clerk in a general store as well as doing census enumeration), Susan Braden was age 18 and single, born in Missouri, Herbert age 16, Jennie age 14, and Florence age 8, all born in Missouri.
Robert E. Braden died August 17, 1928, in Utica, Green Township, Livingston Co., Missouri, at the age of sixty-one years and ten days. The cause of death was cerebral arteriosclerosis, an illness that he had for about two and a half years according to his death record. His wife, Mrs. R. E. Braden signed the death record as informant, and her address was Utica, Missouri. The death record shows burial at Stone Cemetery in Utica, which is an error. He was buried in Utica Cemetery, located in Section 19, Township 57, Range 24, Green Township, Livingston Co., Missouri, on the south side of Highway 36, at the Utica, Missouri junction.
Survivors included his wife Cornelia, and some of his children including Edward Lester Braden, Susan B. Braden, Jennie R. Braden, Florence C. Braden,
