INTRODUCTION. 



In the following pages an attempt is made to bring into order the details 
of descent of two of the lines of the posterity of John Alden, the Pilgrim. 
Mainly they are a record of our researches, and of the labor of our many 
friendly helpers. There can be no question of the value and the necessity 
of such work as this, even if imperfectly done, if it is once conceded that 
it is worth while to preserve records of descent; and one who attempts to 
follow any line of our family in the first two hundred years, when there 
were few Plymouth or Bristol County towns in which a John or Joseph or 
David or Ebenezer did not live, and in some more than one at the same 
time, will need all the light that he can get from any source in arriving at 
the truth as to the parentage of a given person. It is useless for us to 
regret that this record of a sister and brother is in double form, and that 
some of the facts connected with their common ancestors are stated more 
than once in the historical sketch that precedes the matter comprehended 
under the title-page. The daily duties of each have left too little time for 
even this result, and the genealogist who uses our work must exercise what 
patience he can with the repetitions. To the descendants of either the 
duplications of fact will seem less vexatious. 

This double plan of work, by which each of us becomes solely responsible 
for his work, does not extend to the arrangement of the order of statement, 
in which a plan which seemed on the whole the least objectionable has 
been adopted. Each Alden mentioned will be distinguished by an Arabic 
numeral before the name, and the relationship to the immediate ancestor 
will be shown by the number of that ancestor after the name. 

Errors excepted, in the index will be found the name of every Alden de- 
scendant who appears in the text, and of the husband or wife of each, but 
not of the parents of such husband or wife. 

In closing this labor of filial love and devotion, which has involved car- 
riage rides to most of the old towns, the reading of many records, the re- 
moval of the moss and accumulated turf from memorial stones, and listen- 
ing to the stories of those aged ones who are hastening to join those whose 
memory we seek to perpetuate, we lay down the pleasing burden in the 
hope that in some degree we shall seem to the reader to have served faith- 
fully the cause in which we are interested.

ALDEN HISTORY. 



It will not be without interest to the student who is not familiar 
with the facts connected with the earlier generations of the Aldens 
to pass in review, in a brief manner, some of the known events occur- 
ring in the lives of those from whom we are descended ; and that 
course seems the more necessary because the records of some of the 
most important to us are not known to have been printed before. To 
this review of the events mentioned, we subjoin, for convenience in 
reference, in the second part the names of the children born in the 
earlier generations, as usually printed, though we follow in detail 
only our own line. 

John Alden, the Pilgrim, was about twenty-one years old when he ( 
landed ; and President John Adams, descended from him through his 
daughter Ruth, says he was the first stripling to land on Plymouth 
Rock. He was the last to die of those who signed the civil compact 
which began in America government for the people, by the people ; 
and our ancestor is thus the personal representative of the beginning 
and the end of the Pilgrim colonization. 

There is no evidence that he was at first by education or convic- 
tion in sympathy with the views or the sufferings that drove the Pil- 
grims into exile. In the meetings at Scrooby or the dwelling at 
Leyden he had no part ; nor is it probable that until he came into 
direct personal association with the exiles during their lonely voyage, 
and learned to estimate at their true value the lofty principle and un- 
selfish consecration to duty which lay at the foundation of the move- 
ment, that he was drawn to identify himself with it. 

The evidence of Governor Bradford is conclusive on this point, 
and Arber's book places Alden first among the five hired men who 
went out with the company in the "Mayflower." Bradford says, 
"John Alden was hired for a cooper at Southampton where the ship 
victualled, and being a hopeful young man (likely, promising, we 
should say), was much desired, but left to his own liking, to go or 
stay, when he came here, but he stayed, and married here." 

So it was a case of good seed falling by happy providence in fruit- 



6 ALDEN GENEALOGY 

ful soil, and bringing forth a hundred-fold in present honor and future 
prosperity and happiness. 

The hiring of John Alden was a renewed evidence that the founders 
of the Colony, who already had secured the services of Myles Stand- 
ish, a man so little identified with them that some have doubted 
whether he was even a Protestant, recognized the fact that one who 
would keep the hoops on the water-casks in good order was as 
essential to the success of the voyage as Governor Carver or Elder 
Brewster, and, like practical statesmen, provided for the temporal as 
well as for the spiritual needs of the company. 

In the cool and cautious commendation of Bradford, which gives 
warrant for no belief in any great social advancement of the " hope- 
ful " young man, it is impossible to read one hint of the fact that in 
little more than twenty years Alden was one of seven, all writing 
" gentleman " as a proper indication of their social position, who 
were chosen to negotiate the settlement of difficulties with the Puritan 
Colony, and that during all the rest of his long and busy life he was 
Deputy (representative) in the Court of the Colony, or Assistant to 
the Governor, who thus mentions him. 

It may not be far from truth to guess that the social space that 
at first separated Bradford, who was more than any other the financial 
and business head of the Colony, and his hired man, with the rapid 
promotion of the latter, so that in seven years he was next the Gov- 
ernor in rank and power, with the natural antipathy between the king 
and the heir-apparent, fairly accounts for the omission. 

Perhaps those who wish to believe that John Alden was entitled to 
a coat-of-arms may derive some confirmation of their theory from the 
fact that in 1643, as above written, he is called "gentleman" ; but, 
as we know nothing in history or genealogy that connects him with 
that John Alden of the Middle Temple to whom on Sept. 8, 1607, 
Camden, herald-at-arms, adjudged a coat-of-arms " Gules, Three 
Crescents within a border engrailed ermine by the name of Alden," 
we shall have to allow that the probability of our ancestor stepping 
on board the " Mayflower " with his cooper's adze in one hand and his 
coat-of-arms in the other is too small to entitle it to consideration. 

Much more pleasing to the pride of a rational mind is the knowl- 
edge that in an age when good men and even mild men did, and 
verily thought they ought to do, acts that every one now condemns, 
there is no record of our ancestor as a persecutor, or as having any 
part in the awful delusion that darkened the closing years of his 
century. 



ALDEN HISTORY ' 7 

With all the diligence at our command we have not been able to 
add anything to what is already known of John Alden and Priscilla, 
though the Mayflower Descendant lately printed the inventory of his 
estate, or of Joseph and Mary (Simmons). Even their burial-places 
are unknown to us, though it may well be that the tradition that 
places the grave of Priscilla by the side of that of her daughter, 
EUzabeth Pabodie, at Little Compton, R.I., is true. 

Perhaps the one feature in the history of his ancestors which the 
thoughtful descendant of the Pilgrims remembers with the least pleas- 
ure is the relation of the immigrants to those whom they found in 
possession of the country. It is no settlement of the question of fair 
title to say that they fairly paid for what they got ; for the use which 
the buyers were to make of the land was so different from that which 
the sellers had made or could make that it was only when experience 
showed the latter how much more than the mere right to cultivate the 
soil they had sold had been conveyed, and how they could no longer 
cross over it to reach their fishing places, that the irrepressible conflict 
was manifest. 

With waning power and always diminishing resources the red men 
fought out the battle, and there was peace when the whites at last 
had them cooped in definite reservations or lying in unmarked graves. 
To know that among the conquering invaders there was one with 
purpose so just and mind so equitable that the weak might trust their 
cause with him, and so grounded in the respect of his own people that 
his opinions would command obedience, is to be sure that such a man 
was. one from whom all good men would be glad to claim descent, 
and official records show that our ancestor was that man. The 
paper which follows may be found in the Plymouth Colony Deeds, 
vol. ii. p. 41, and has already been printed in Mayflower Descend- 
ant, vol. ii. p. 31 : — 

Whereas a difference hath arisen between the Inhabitants off Sand- 
widge and the Sachem off Manomett and other Indians conserning a 
Tract of upland called quitnite the said Sachem with the Rest having 
chosen Miles Standish senior and John Alden senior ; and the said 
Townsmen of Sandwidge haveing chosen Robert Dennis of Yarmouth 
and John Smith of Barnstable to arbitrate and fully to conclude and 
end the aforesaid differences ; all the said pties of Sandwidge and the 
said Sachem haveing given full power to end and conclude all 
Differences between the said pties Difering for any matter of Land. 

Wee therefore haveing waighed the arguments on both sides accord- 
ing to our best understanding have ; all the pties that is to say. Miles

Standish John Alden Robert Dennis and John Smith mutually con- 
cluded all the said Differences conserning the land off quitnite as fol- 
loweth ; 

Videlecet wee Doe by these prsents in full satisfaction wee give 
unto the said Sachem &c twenty six acres of upland onely for all that 
the said pties have can or may challenge in full satisfaction for all 
Rightes claims or Demands of all or any pte of the said Lands apper- 
taining to the Towne of Sandwidge except the foremencioned twenty 
six acres of upland ; Also wee do mutually agree and conclude the said 
Sachem &c shall have the twenty six acres of Land in one Intire 
place provided it be in the fitest Land for their use ; Wee alsoe graunt 
to the said Sachem &c libertie to fell fitt wood to ffence the said Land 
upon any pte of the said quitnite alwaies provided incase there be not 
sufficient upon the said twenty six acres of upland ; farther It is con- 
cluded that the said Indians make a sufficient ffence at their own 
Dammage ; and that the said Sachem shall for himself and all other 
Indians that shall Resort to him ; shall undertake for him and them 
that neither hee or any such Indians that they shall not Damnifye the 
said Townsmen of Sandwidge by kiUing or hunting any such cattle as 
they shall att any time put upon the said necke : and in case any 
cattle be hurt or killed by the Indians upon due proofe the aforesaid 
Sachem shall make the Dammage good ; and that there may be 
naighborly agreement between the said Indians and the Townsmen of 
Sandwidge Alsoe It is concluded by the said Miles Standish John 
Alden Robert Dennis and John Smith that the said Sachem and all 
that appertaine to him or Resort unto him shall not hunt or chase the 
cattle of the towne of Sandwidge ; And if the said Sachem shall see any 
cattle of the EngUsh in any danger the Sachem shall prsently give 
notice to some man or men of the Towne of Sandwidge.

In addition to such service as this the Plymouth Records show 
many instances in which his neighbors had the benefit of his counsel 
in adjusting conflicting claims, and in restoring harmony and good 
will between brothers and friends who disagreed as to bounds and 
rights. In those days, when the office sought the man so strenuously 
that a fine followed non-acceptance, it might lead to a false conclusion 
to infer personal character from continuous official position, but the 
evidence of these suffrages of fellow-townsmen and neighbors cannot 
be misinterpreted. 

A little more than sixty years after his death a Quincy rhymester, 



ALDEN HISTORY 9 

whose excellent commendation of our ancestor will somewhat recon- 
cile us to his doggerel, had occasion to sing the eulogy of Alden's 
grand-daughter Sarah Thayer, lately dead : — 

Her grandfather he was a man who did the truth reveal, 

And to defend Christ's kingdom great he burned with holy zeal. 

Like holy Abraham of old left land and kindred all, 

And wandering up and down he went wherever God did call. 

From old England he did come o'er where heathen did possess 

For to enjoy religion pure, and God this man did bless. 

And made him once a ruler here, let's not forget his fame. 

He lived above the age of man, John Alden was his name. 

This is definite and direct, spoken to men who must have known 
the man ; and so we may take it as conclusive that when, as the 
seventh signer of the civil compact, he identified himself with the 
colonists who were to make him Governor's Assistant for forty-three 
years, and thirteen years Treasurer of the Colony, he was not, as at 
first, with them only, but of them. 

His Duxbury home was at Eagle-Tree Pond, some two miles north 
of Captain's Hill, and eight from Plymouth. 

The line of his descendants to which we belong is easily remem- 
bered by the alternation John', Joseph-, John^, Joseph*. 

It is known that Joseph Alden, son of John the Pilgrim, lived on 
the Bridgewater land granted to his father, which land lay near the 
building of the Historical Society in the present town of West Bridge- 
water. The burying-ground in use in the latter part of the seven- 
teenth century was on the south-westerly side of the street on which 
the Historical Society building stands, and is included in the estate 
of the late Francis Howard, Esq. ; but no fragment of a stone or 
depression in the surface of the smooth lawn around the memorial 
stone which marks the centre of the grant gives any evidence of the 
undoubted fact that the first settlers were buried there. 

It is with profound satisfaction, when one leaves the foggy land of 
tradition and distorting half- knowledge, where "it is said " and " we 
may believe " and the like phrases usurp the place of truth, to stand 
upon the firm rock of knowledge. Such a change we experience in 
passing from the second to the third generation, and thereafter we 
rely on recorded documents and on other reUable evidence. 

Joseph^, the son of John', was younger brother of the Captain 
John who suffered so much from the effects of the witchcraft delusion 
in Boston, and his posterity must ever be proud to claim alUance 
with one of the clear heads that saw through the terrible imposture.

John 3 removed to Middleborough about 1700 and before his chil- 
dren were born. His gravestone and that of Hannah (White), his 
wife, are in Purchade * burying-ground, Plymouth Street, North 
Middleborough. 

He was one of the original purchasers of Middleborough from 
the Indians ; and the cellar of his house is only about twenty rods 
north of the road leading from North Middleborough to the centre, 
and less than one-eighth of a mile east of the Purchade burying- 
ground in which he and his wife Hannah (White) lie. His will, 
made in the year of his death, 1730, is here reproduced as having 
a profound interest to his descendants, and not much less to all who 
desire to know the characteristics, self-revealed, of the founders of 
our State that are shown by it. So far as we know, it has not 
been printed before. 

Know all men by these presents that I John Alden of the Town 
of middleborough In the county of plimouth In new england 
being at this present time very sick and weak : yet of sound and 
disposing memory & understanding : Blessed be God for the same : 
and being senceable of my own mortality : and Knowing that it is 
appointed for all men once to die : Do make and ordain this to be 
my last will and Testament to Remain firm and Inviolable for Ever. 
That is to say : first and principaly I Recommend my Soul to God 
that gave it : and my body I committ to the Earth to be decently 
Buried : hoping to Receive the same in Glory at the general Resur- 
ection through the Merits of Jesus Christ : and as for my outward 
Estate wherewith it hath pleased God to Bless me : I give and dis- 
pose of the Same In maner following : Imprimis I Give and bequeath 
unto my Loving wife Hannah Alden one third part of all my move- 
able Estate whatsoever and one third part of all the Debts due unto 
me my just debts and funeral charges being first paid out of my 
moveable Estate the Same to be for her comfortable Subsistance and 
to be at her own disposing : Also I give and bequeath unto my said 
wife the whole use and Improvement of my Dwelling house barn 

♦Purchade gets its name from some corruption of the Indian name, "Pachaet," "Package, 
Pickade, Ptchade," given to the neck "near Teticut river." 

This burial-place might properly be called the Alden ground, for it was given by John Alden3 ; 
and a very large number of those allied to us, besides those in our direct line, lie all around in this 
place. The names and ages of some who were born in the eighteenth century are given here : David, 
S3 ; David, 6i ; Elijah, 98 ; Jared, 84 ; Job, 88 ; Lucinda, 62; Vienna, 84, among others. 

But the most interesting of these not in our direct line is John, the younger brother of Joseph*. 
He was born in 1719, and died in 1821. It seems to bring us very near in point of time to remember 
that this son of a grandson of John, the Pilgrim, was alive during the lifetime of some who may read 
this note. The great age of these noted above, most, if not all of whom were like him descended 
from Joseph^, seems to emphasize the remark, often made, that the descendants of that line now far 
outnumber those of all the others combined, and suggests the thought that great additional vitality 
must have come in through marriage.

and outhouses during her widdowhood Also I Give unto my said wife 
the whole use and Improvement of all the lands : which by this my 
last will I Give to my Son John Alden : during her widdowhood :

one third of the aforesaid land given to my son John during her 
widdowhood : Item whereas I have formerly given unto my Son David

thence on a strait line to a cedar stake Standing on the Southerly

ALDEN HISTORY 1 7 

At a session of the Court held April, 1731, David Alden having 
renounced his position, Hannah was made sole executrix. 

September, 1746, "the said executors being also since deceased," 
Samuel Edy, Jr., of Middleborough, yeoman, son of the daughter 
Lydia, was appointed administrator with the will annexed, with 
Noah Alden of Middleborough, husbandman, and Thomas Mayhew, 
merchant, of Plymouth, as his bondsmen. 

This will has a good degree of interest to the general reader, and 
is especially interesting to an Alden descendant. Many of the forms 
which are now considered necessary in order that a will should be 
valid were not followed, and it will be noticed that the witnesses 
to this will certify to no more than that they saw him sign it. In the 
commingling of religious dogma and secular business it does not 
differ from most of the wills of that period, and perhaps not in the 
technical description of the parcels of land devised ; but to a modern 
conveyancer the absence of all distances in any direction, and of all 
accurate points of compass, together with the temporary nature of 
the marks named, combine to leave a most obscure image of the tract 
conveyed. " The way that leads to Titicut " is clear, and from " the 
River down stream " is plain enough if one knew how long the bank 
of the river is followed, and at what point it was approached ; but 
the " stump with stones round it," and the "cedar stake," and even 
"the white oak tree," by their temporary nature do but mark more 
emphatically that respect for the rights of others and the absolute 
subordination to law and property rights that made these frail monu- 
ments enough, and which traits still constitute the crowning glory 
of our New England heritage. 

For the rest, some of us can shine for a minute in the reflected 
glory of an ancestor who threw around eighty-acre lots with the lav- 
ishness of an Eastern prince, and willed swamp land without designat- 
ing and, perhaps, without himself knowing the number of acres given. 
Many will learn with surprise that our family boasts a slaveholder 
among its ancestors, and all will be touched by that change in detail 
in the wording of the will by which " some convenient " place for a 
burial-ground became the spot already hallowed by the grave of the 
giver's Httle son. 

Each reader may guess for himself the motive that limited the large 
gifts to the wife to a continuing widowhood, according as a husband 
is considered a selfish tyrant who would rule, even in the grave, or as 
a wise friend who would continue to love and to protect even after 



1 8 ALDEN GENEALOGY 

death ; but there will be no division of sentiment as to that clause 
which provides for the education of little Noah. 

It was owing to no lack of foresight on the part of the testator that 
this provision failed to secure its object, but, rather, to the fact that 
the widow died so soon after her husband, and that it was only when 
the boy had attained his majority, in 1746, that the estate was finally 
settled. 

But in spite of all hindrances Noah is shown by Sprague's " Annals 
of the American Pulpit " to have attained a large and varied useful- 
ness, and it is impossible to read the final sentences in the quotation 
that follows from that work without recognizing in the dead clergy- 
man the fruition of that infant promise that the father saw in his five- 
year-old son, so many years before : — 

"He was born in Middleborough, May 30, 1725, the youngest of 
thirteen children. His father left property to secure him a college 
education, but it was improperly diverted from that purpose, and in 
consequence he was exposed to many hardships. Before he was 
twenty, he married and removed to Stafford, Conn., where he pur- 
chased a farm. There he joined the Congregational Church and 
continued in that form till 1753, when he became a Baptist. 

" June, 1755, he became the minister of the Baptist Church in Staf- 
ford, and so continued until November, 1766, when he was installed 
as pastor of the Baptist Church in Bellingham, Mass. Here he con- 
tinued until his death May, 1797, when nearly seventy-two years old. 

"He was chosen as a delegate from Bellingham to the convention 
that adopted the Constitution of the United States, and of the Con- 
vention that formed the Constitution of Massachusetts, acquitting 
himself with great credit in both. 

" His countenance was expressive of great mildness, dignity, and 
benevolence. Children were his delight, and they were never happier 
than when the objects of his attentions." 

It will be seen that the ground in which John 3, his son Joseph, and 
wife Hannah Hall, and Joseph's son Ebenezer all lie, was given in 
this will ; and it is an interesting fact that by the side of the last there 
is space for his wife, Ruth Fobes, who lies in North Carver. The 
part given in John's will lies next the street, there having been a mod- 
ern addition in the rear, and his body lies in the first row next the 
north-west entrance. In the third row east is Joseph, 17 16-1787; 
and in the fourth is Ebenezer, 1743-1773.

The son John, to whom the will leaves the home property, is he 
who lived on until 1 821, being only eleven years old when the will was 
made. He was of the fourth generation from the Pilgrim, and we 
are of the eighth ; but it would not be strange if there were people 
still living in Middleborough who remember him. His body lies in 
the third row from that of his father and that of his brother David, 
In the careful provision which the will makes for the liberal education 
of the son Noah is seen a most creditable reflection of the thought 
that founded Harvard College and Brown University. 

Joseph 4 appears always to have lived in Middleborough, though 
some of the returns that he makes as administrator of his son 
Ebenezer's 5 estate may imply that in some part of the latter portion 
of his life he was an inhabitant of Plympton, with the widow of his 
son. 

As appears from the subjoined table, he was twice married, but 
had children only by the first wife. Tradition more direct than usual 



2 2 ALDEN GENEALOGY 

says that Joseph Uved and Ebenezer his son died in a house on 
Centre Street, North Middleborough, very near that village. The 
house is the second on the left side of the road next beyond the 
Colonel Eaton place. 

There is no conveyance of this place to Joseph or Ebenezer in the 
Plymouth Registry, though one or the other is said once to have 
owned it. 

Deborah Williamson, a widow, b. Sept. ii, 1716, m. Joseph Alden^, 
Sept. 3, 1767, fourteen months after the death of Hannah (Hall). 
Although she bore no children to the Alden stock, and her maiden name 
and place of death and burial are unknown to us, and although she 
is visible but a minute before the obscurity in which she was before 
enveloped again swallows her up, perhaps forever, her connection 
with our family is of supreme importance for the reason that it is the 
occasion of a paper that traces our descent from John, the Pilgrim. 

Joseph Alden lived between 17 16 and 1787, his son Ebenezer 
between 1743 and 1773. In the short time between Ebenezer's 
marriage, December, 1763, and his death in January, 1773, six chil- 
dren were born to him. His mother died July i, 1766. 

The mother of Ebenezer's children remarried four years after the 
death of their father ; and they were scattered, some in Bridgewater, 
perhaps with their maternal grandfather, some in Middleborough, 
and some with their aunt in Raynham. 

Their father was a storekeeper in Middleborough, dying of measles 
in the middle of the winter ; and his insolvent estate was settled by 
his father Joseph. Out of these conditions of death, dispersion, and 
remarriage has come the fact that there is no known record evidence 
that these children were the descendants of John, the Pilgrim. Of 
the fact there has been plenty of hearsay evidence, convincing 
enough and undisputed ; but of proof that would entitle one to inherit 
an estate or to derive a pauper settlement there was none known. 

Dr. Ebenezer Alden's History, 1867, painstaking and indispen- 
sable, says that Ebenezer married Hannah Hall, 1742, she being his 
mother, and the time a year before his birth ; and Mitchell's His- 
tory of Bridgewater gives us no more than his intention of marriage, 
1763, with no hint of children. The marriage record of Middle- 
borough shows that he was married there Dec. 22, 1763, but gives 
no names of children born to him. Under these circumstances it 
was of supreme importance to find in the Raynham house of Amos 
Hall, son of Fear Alden, sister of Ebenezer, a quit-claim deed made 



ALDEN HISTORY 23 

by Deborah Alden in 1789, after she was the widow of Joseph, and 
when perhaps it became necessary to raise money for the further 
support of the orphan children of Ebenezer by the sale of their 
grandfather's property, which document could not better have served 
our purpose if it had been a genealogical chart. 

It is of small account that the deed is defective in that it makes 
no description or location of property affected, and gives no dates 
of former instruments mentioned, or that it never was formally ac- 
knowledged, so that it could be put on record. The paper, of un- 
doubted authenticity, is before us, and is here copied : — 

Know all Men by these Presents, that I Deborah Alden, Widow 
to Joseph Alden, late of INIiddleborough, in the County of Plymouth,

lings and two Pence, Lawful Money, to me in hand paid, by Abner

Lewis Hall Yeoman and Fear his Wife, Lois Alden, Orpah Alden &

in, and to the Estate, both Real and Personal, which the said Joseph 
Alden, deceased, died seized of ; as also, of all Lands and Real

Nor is the history of Ruth Fobes, the mother of these children, and 
great-grandmother to us of the eighth generation, entirely with- 
out interest. She was born in 1744, and had not hved out nearly 



2 4 ALDEN GENEALOGY 

half her allotted time when she was left alone in the winter with six 
fatherless children around her, when she married Daniel Faunce, of 
Plympton, now North Carver, in 1777. She was of Bridgewater 
(Bridgewater Town Record), which makes it probable that she and 
one or more of her children found a home with her father Joshua 
Fobes, who was guardian. 

There is every evidence that her marriage to Faunce was a prudent 
and successful one ; and the provisions of his will when he died in 
1803, as well as the house, still standing, in which they lived in North 
Carver, bear evidence that she needed at the time of her father's 
death no more than the nominal sum given her in his will. Besides 
these children of our line she had five, who came to adult life, by 
Mr. Faunce. 

She names the oldest of her boys Alden, in tender memory of de- 
parted joys and griefs ; but his remains rest in Ohio, whither he went 
in July, 1823, Two of the daughters who intermarried with the 
Vaughans, and their children, lie near her or in the centre burial- 
ground a mile beyond. 

In her seventy-fourth year, July 28, 181 7, as appears by her legible 
slate-stone, her life ended, and she lies at rest by the side of her 
second husband and of his first wife, in the North Carver ground, 
nearly in the centre, at the left side of the rear third. 

A touching memorial of her early sorrows is on file at Plymouth 
Probate Office, with a copy of which this sketch may properly end : — 

To the hoTiorabk John Gushing^ Judge of the probate of 

Wills &= Granting Letters of adni"^ in the county of Plimouth &'c. 

Whereas my Husband Ebenezer Alden late of Middleborough de- 
ceased, died Intestate, leaving me with a number of small Children, & 
leaving many of his accounts unsettled & perplexed, and his Estate

* " Mrs. Robinson's record," which is alluded to in connection with Rayuham death statistics, is a 
list of deaths in Raynham, 1749-1876, kept by Mrs. Hannah Robinson, wife of Seth, until her death 
1823, and tl^n by her daughter Mrs. Hannah Robinson until her death. The record for the first 
twenty-four years is fragmentary, there being only one death recorded in some of the years. But 
after 1773 this voluntary labor was carefully done. There is ample evidence that the records are 
authentic, as where the town record gives the age as " one year," Mrs. Robinson gives it as " 12 
months." Here, then, are about a thousand names recorded of deaths occurring where there was no 
entry on the town record, and it is difficult to exaggerate the debt that we owe to these good ladies 
for their work. In 1886 the volume, "much worn," was in the hands of Mrs. Eunice Robinson wife 
of Joseph Tucker Leonard, and the copy from which these data are taken was then made by Samuel 
P. May, Esq., of Newton, and placed in the library of the New England Genealogical Society, 
where, with the liberality native to that place, it awaits the investigations of students.

Although not included in the plan of this book, it may be of as- 
sistance to descendants of Ebenezer^ in other lines than through 
Polly and Ebenezer*^, as well as to the genealogist who shall assemble 
in one volume all the known posterity of the Pilgrim, that there 
should be here preserved certain memoranda having a good degree 
of authenticity. They were found in the papers of Mrs. Shaw, 
mother of one of the editors, and those of Mrs. Eunice Stevens, 
daughter of her aunt, Hannah Backus. There is no ground for 
belief that the records are copied one from the other; and, con- 
firmed as both are, in many details, by Raynham town records, there 
is good reason for accepting them as reliable. 

Before giving them, it is thought best here to place on record cer- 
tain details found in Mrs. Shaw's paper of the names and marriage 
relations of the brothers and sisters of Joseph ■♦. She was interested 
and intelligent in such things, and probably no essential departure 
from facts otherwise established will be found in her statement.

Mrs. Shaw's memorandum gives no dates of birth, and they have 
been supplied from Raynham town records. It also lacks the names 
of " Ebenezer " and " Ezra," found on the town record, and gives 
"Thomas," not there found. Perhaps Thomas may be one of these 
two renamed, and the other may have died before her knowledge of 
her aunt's family. 

The name of the family is always given with accent on second 
syllable, and sometimes spelled "Persho," and sometimes " Presho." 
The mother's name is sometimes Orpah, sometimes Orpha. 



APPENDIX. 



Although the subject is outside the scope of this book, the promi- 
nent position of Capt. John Alden of Boston in the witchcraft delu- 
sion of 1692 will lend to the papers here printed an interest to Alden 
descendants that will fully justify their appearance here, particularly 
because the first one, copied from the Massachusetts Archives, vol- 
ume on Witchcraft, p. 25, is not generally known. 

The writer was probably an eye-witness of the scenes of May 31, 
so graphically set down in the paper that follows his letter. 

To Isaac Addington Esq. Boston from Salem 31 May i6g2. 

Worthy Sir I have herewith sent you the 7iames of the persons that 
are desired to be transmitted hither by habeas Corpus and have p'^sumed 
to send a Coppy thereof being more as I p'^sume accustomed to that prac- 
tise than y^selfe and beg pardon if I have infringed upon you therein. 
I fear we shall not this weeke try all that we have sent for , by reasofi 
the tryalls will be tedious 6^ the afflicted persons cannot readily give 
their testimony s being struck dumb and se?ice less for a season at the ?iame 
of the accused. I have been all this day at the village with the Gent.^ 
of the Council at the Exaicon of y^ persons luhere I have beheld most 
strange things Scarce credible but to Spectators and too tedious here ta 
relate^ and amongst the rest Cap^ Alden 6^ J/"" English have their mitti- 
mus 6^ I must say according to the p^ sent appearance of things they are 
as deeply concerned as the rest, for the afflicted spare no person of what 
quality soever neither conceal their Crimes tho never so hainous, we pray 
that Tittuba the Indiari cj^ Mrs. Thatcher's tnaid may be transferred as 
Evide?ices but desire they may fiot come amongst the prisoners but rather 
by themselves with the Records of the Court of Assis- 16/Q, agt Bridg-

Mr. Webbs hands by the order of the Council I pray pardon that I

APPENDIX 

Isaac Addington was Judge of Probate ; and Thomas Newton, 
Attorney-General, was evidently there in his official capacity. 

Here follows Alden's account of his troubles at Salem Village : — 

An accoufit how John Aldin, senior, of Boston, in the County of Suf- 
folk, mariner, on the 28th day of May, i6q2, ivas sent for by the mag- 
istrates of Salem upon the accusation of a company of poor distracted or 
possessed creatures or witches ; and being sent by Mr. Stoughton ar- 
rived there the ji^ of May and appeared at Saleifi Village before Mr. 
Gidney, Mr. Hathorn and Mr. Curwin. 

Those ivenches being present, who played their juggling tricks, fallifig 
down, crying out, and staring in people"" s faces ; the magistrates de- 
manded of them several times, who it was of all the people ifi the 7-oom 
that hurt them : one of these accusers pointed several times at one Cap- 
tain Hill, there present, but spake nothing ; the same accuser had a man 
standing at her back to hold her up ; he stooped dowti to her ear, then 
she cried out Aldi?i, Aldin afflicted her ; one of the magistrates asked 
her if she had ever seen Aldin, she answered ?io ; he asked her how she 
knew it was Aldin ; she said the man told her so. Theft all were or- 
dered to go down ifito the street, where a rifig was made ; and the same 
accuser cried out There stands Aldin, a bold fellow, with his hat on 
before the judges ; he sells powder and shot to the Indians and French, 
and lies with the Indian squaws, and has Indian papooses. Theti was 
Aldin committed to the marshaVs custody, and his sword taken from 
him for they said he afflicted thefti with his sword. After some hours 
Aldin was sent for to the meeiing-house in the Village, before the magis- 
trates ; who required Aldin to stand upon a chair, to the open view of 
.all the people. The accusers cried out that Aldin pinched them, then, 
when he stood upon the chair, in the sight of all the people, a good way 
distant from them. One of the magistrates bid the marshal to hold 
open Aldi?i^s hands, that he might not pinch those creatures. Aldin 
asked them why they should think that he should come to that Village to 
■afflict those persons that he never kfiew or saw before. 

Mr. Gidney bid Aldin confess, and give glory to God. Aldin said 
he hoped he should give glory to God and hoped he never should gratify 
the devil ; but appealed to all that ever knew him if they ever suspected 
him to be such a person, and challenged any one, that could bring in 
anything upon their own knowledge that might give suspicion of his 
being such an one. Mr. Gidney said he had known Aldin mafiy years, 
and had been at sea with him, and ahvays looked upon him to be an 
honest man, but now he saw cause to alter his judgment. 



APPENDIX 

Aldin answered^ he was sorry for that, but he hoped God would clear 
up his innocency, that he would recal that judgment again, and added, 
that he hoped that he should with Job maintain his integrity till he died. 
They bid Aldin look upon the accusers, which he did, and they fell down. 
Aldin asked Mr. Gidney what reason there could be given, why Aldin^s 
looking on him did not strike him doT.vn as ^oell, but no reason was 
given. But the accused were brought to Aldin to touch them, and this 
touch they said made them well. Aldin began to speak of the providence 
of God, in suffering these creatures to accuse innocent persons. Mr. 
Noyes (a fninister) asked Aldin why he should offer to speak of the 
providence of God, and so ivent on with discourse, and stopt Aldin' s 
mouth as to that. 

Aldin told Mr. Gidney that he could assure him that there was a 
lying spirit, in them, for there is not a word of truth in all these say of 
me. But he was again committed to the marshal. 

To Boston Aldin was carried by a constable ; no bail would be taken 
for him ; but was delivered to the prison-keeper, where he remained 
fifteen weeks ; (which would be till the middle of September) and then 
observing the manner of trials, and evidence then taken, was at length 
prevailed with to make his escape, atid being returtied was bound over to 
answer at the Superior Court at Bostoti, the last Tuesday in April, 
i6gj : and was then cleared by proclamation, none appearing against 
^^^' Per John Alden. 

It is many years since the last of the male descendants of Capt. 
John Alden died ; but Alden Street in Boston, where he had a large 
landed estate, with the historical record of his services to the Colony, 
as the commander of her armed ships, will long keep his memory 
green.
