While I have found some tidbits about the (Abraham) Cadden (born: Germany 1840, home: 86 Sumner, trustee: Isaac Leeser Lodge no. 142) Clothing Company, such as it was buried along with others in Hartford, CT's blizzard of '88 and was a participant in a court case a year later, no substantial company history has yet surfaced. If you have information about the company, please post your comments below or email me. Thanks!
