James Harden, the popular assessor and well-to-do farmer of Bridge Creek township, was born on a farm in St. Lawrence county, New York, December 2, 1852, the son of Daniel Harden, a representative and highly respected citizen of that county. Mr, Harden spent his boyhood days on the farm in New York state, attended the district schools and assisted in the farm work. At the age of fifteen years in 1867, he came to Wisconsin and Eau Claire county, where he has since made his home. In 1880 he was married to Miss Caroline Noble, a daughter of one of the pioneer families of Eau Claire, and they have two sons, Ralph and Alton.

Mr. Harden resides on his well improved farm of 160 acres which is located in section 28, Bridge Creek township, where he, assisted by his son Ralph, carries on general farming and stock raising. He is one of the high minded, prosperous farmers of his town, and takes a deep interest in the welfare of his county. A Republican in politics, he is active in the councils of his party and has been honored by the citizens of his town with election to the office of assessor, a position he has held for four years. Fraternally, he is prominent in the circles of Masonry and is also a member of the Modern Woodmen of America.
