Prudden, Orrin D. - Prominent among the furniture dealers of this city and in fact one of the leading establishments is that of Prudden Brothers, of which firm Mr. Orrin D. Prudden, subject of this sketch, is the senior member. Mr. Prudden is a son of the late Louis and Elizabeth A. Prudden, natives of Connecticut, and was born October 3, 1851. He received his education in the district schools and at the Lockport Union School, after which he engaged in teaching for a number of years. In 1878 he married Miss Ida A. Quade of Lockport, and their residence, No. 178 Locust street, is one of the handsomest in town. In 1885 Mr. Prudden formed a copartnership with his brother, Mr. Walter S. Prudden, in the furniture and undertaking business, which they have since conducted in a very successful and prosperous manner. A member of the Royal Arcanum, Odd Fellows, Masons, and Knight Templars, and a member of the First Presbyterian church, Mr. Prudden occupies an important position in Lockport's business circles.
