The name Van Norden comes from Naardan, a town in Holland, and a former province of the Netherlands.  Her name was found written as 'Vanhorden' on her son Walter's marriage record ('horden' most likely misread for Norden).  In the book "the Ancestry and Descendants of Cornelius and John J. Van Deusen" it is listed as Van Norden.
