This biography from the Archives of AskART:
William Arnold Eyden Sr. was born in August 1859 in Hanover, Germany. Wilhelm Eyden arrived in New York on on 13 July 1868 with his mother Doris Eyden and siblings Helene, Johanna, and Johanne. Family tradition says that William's mother died on the voyage from Germany, but this is obviously incorrect.

The 1880 census confirms that he was born in Hanover, Germany. He married Elvina Goodwin in 1880 in Wayne County, IN. She was born in January 1862 in Ohio a daughter of George and Luisa Goodwin. Their son Walter Earnest was born on 29 November 1881 in Richmond, Indiana.

The Eydens were living in Richmond City, Wayne County, IN in 1880 with Elvina's parents where William was employed as a chair maker. William was employed as an artist in 1900 and 1910 in Richmond where the Eydens rented a home. Censuses show that the Eydens had six children, but only Walter Earnest, Florence, and William A. Jr. appear in census records. 

Eyden Sr. was an early and prominent member of the Richmond Group of artists and a founding member of the Artists Association of Richmond. He is mentioned in Mallett's Index of Artists
where he is misidentified as "William T. Eyden". He is also mentioned in Davenport's Art Reference and Price Guide.

William A. Eyden Sr. died 21 March 1919 in Richmond and is buried in the Earlham Cemetery, Richmond, IN. W. A.
