John Alden is my 7th great uncle, by marriage. He married my great, great aunth Ruth Hess. They had no children. I know we are in possession of his family crest and sword. I don't know if this helps. Maybe you can find more info of family members with this new info. My aunt Ruth was born in the year 1894. She passed away four months before her 100th birthday. The story of my uncle have been told to me since I was a baby. We also have a pilgrim's hymnal as well.
