Portrait of Christian "Bud" Maulsby Borden wearing his Navy uniform and posed with his second wife, Virginia (Wakeman) Borden.

Bud was from Toms Brook, the son of Christian David (1876-1956) and Alma Marian (Brown) (1878-1954) Borden.

His second marriage was to Virginia Fleda Wakeman (1914-1986), from Fishers Hill near Strasburg. Her parents were Omer Lester (1885-1959) and Grace Dorothy (Keller) (1888-1923) Wakeman. The couple married in 1942 in Waynesboro. At that time, Bud worked as a cost accountant and lived in Lorton, Virginia. His bride lived in Woodstock.

Soon after, Bud joined the military. He served from July 1942 to October 1946. He continued to serve in the U.S. Navy Reserves into the 1950’s and attained the rank of Lt. Commander.

By 1950, Bud and Virginia lived with his parents in Toms Brook. Bud worked at a gas station and Virginia was an English teacher at Strasburg High School.

They did not have children.
