As recounted in the Durham Morning Herald, Theodore Carden “had been in declining health for several years, but had worked at his job” the Tuesday in January 1967 on which he suffered a fatal heart attack. It would be two more years before his widow purchased this house from the company where he worked for four decades.
Hosia Carden herself put in 25 years with Erwin Mills (later called Burlington Industries), remaining in this house and active at nearby Grey Stone Baptist in retirement until she passed in 1989. For many years thereafter, this was again home to their daughter, Velma Carden Barbee, until it was sold to the present developers in 2022.
