Description

Lt. J.G. Christian "Bud" Maulsby Borden standing in the studio and wearing his U.S. Navy uniform.

Bud was from Toms Brook, the son of Christian David (1876-1956) and Alma Marian (Brown) (1878-1954) Borden. His birth was not registered until 1942, when his mother brought to the Circuit Court a bible from 1895 with Bud’s appearance recorded in it. The record noted that the Clerk who accepted the evidence had known Alma Borden “all her life”.

He married Lorita Virginia Artlip, a young woman from Roanoke, in 1930. The couple lived in Pulaski, Virginia, where Bud worked for the Continental Life Insurance Company. This marriage did not last.

When he registered for the WWII draft in October 1940, Bud lived in Alexandria where he worked for the Virginia State Employment Service. He was described as being 5’11” tall and 157 pounds.

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. Cdr. When this photograph was made, his rank was Lt. J.G.

By 1950, Bud and Virginia lived with his parents in Toms Brook. Bud worked at a gas station and Virginia was a primary school teacher. They did not have children.

When he died, Bud lived in Fishers Hill near Strasburg where he was a merchant at a store.
