I would be very interested in any information you are willing to share about the Alden family.I am a descendant of Capt. John Burrell (my mother was a Burrell), son of Mercy Alden and John Burrill.Mercy is the daughter of Joseph Alden and Mary Simmons and Joseph is the son of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins.(I have not confirmed all of the dates, but I have found the same links to be in many different sources.)
I also recently found that I am probably also related to John and Priscilla through a different line - Mehitable Alden m. Joshua Packard.Mehitable is the daughter of Samuel Alden and Abiah Edson, Samuel is the son of Joseph Alden and Hannah Dunham, Joseph is the son of Joseph Alden and Mary Simmons (see above).This is a new link - so I am not too sure about it. I found this information in a web site maintained by Don Weymouth.
