NOTE: In the  marriage license below, Abraham's middle name is listed as "Blandin".

Two of Abraham and Susies children died as infants. Three of there children were born at Glade West Virginia, one at Crow, West Virginia, and three more in their home in Beckley, West Virginia. Their home located at 822 S. Kanawha St. in Beckley, was built in 1901-1902.  They moved in around April of 1902. The house still stands today but is not owned by the Redden family. As a young man in his late teens, A. B. Redden was a schoolteacher in Logan County.  He stayed at the school during the week and would travel home on the weekends. The path he took lead him past the home of Devil Anse Hatfield, of the legendary Hatfields and McCoys, where he would stay the night and finish his journey home the next day. While spending one evening in the Hatfield home he was sitting on a small bed in the corner of the room close to the door, when all of a sudden the door burst open and one of the Hatfield boys staggered in shouting and demanding that one of the other men of the house give him whisky.  After a few minutes the temper of the drunken man turned violent and he pulled a gun on the other man. Abraham said that he was sure that some one was going to get shot, so he grabbed a child that he thought might be in the line of fire and scooted back on the bed into the corner as far out of the way as possible. Just then, one of the Hatfield women who had been cooking in the kitchen, stepped around the corner, reached under her apron and drew out a revolver, pointed it at the drunken brother and said, ď You know we are cut out of the same cloth. You shoot him and Iíll drop you where you stand, and you know I will.Ē The drunken man left without his whisky.

 Abe said he didnít sleep very well that night. He spoke of watching Devil Anse Hatfield as he sat in his rocking chair in front of the fireplace, with the room being lit only by the firelight, Abe being aware of the stories of the feuding in the area, said he could envisioned blood dripping from the hands of old man Hatfield.

 In reality the Hatfields must have been a fairly hospitable family to provide a warm meal and a place to sleep for a young schoolteacher on his way home. He did say of Deval Anse Hatfield that he was a good father.

 Granddad in speaking of his school teaching days said that when he ran onto a mathematical problem that he could not solve, he would think about it just before going to bed for the night and he would dream about it and always have the answer in the morning.

That young school teacher went on to become a Postmaster at the small community of Sunflower, West Virginia.  He was a grocer, and the proprietor of a menís apparel shop, He managed to purchase several hundred acre of timberland in Richmond District along with the mineral rights. He became a recognized authority on the coal seams in the region and was sought after for information by those in the industry well into his retirement years.

He was a pollution, who ran for the office of Raleigh County Sheriff. Although He conceded to his appointee and was not elected. It was said of him that he was an honest politician. In 1902 he was elected councilman in Beckley. Abraham Redden later worked for, and retired from, the Raleigh Co. Assessors Office as the Deputy Assessor. He died on the 19th of February 1962 in Charlston, West Virginia after falling and breaking his hip on an icy sidewalk while walking to town at the age of 91. Abraham and Susie are buried in the Redden family cemetery, at Crow, Raleigh County, West Virginia.
