Israel Alden, b. 1824/25 (son of Phebe Wade and Abner Alden--Abner>Israel>Noah>etc), married Hannah Johnson on July 4, 1844, in Medina, OH.
What I find interesting after looking at some of the recent posts is that it looks like there were other Aldens living in Medina. I had long wondered what Israel (son of Abner and Phebe, of Windsor, NY), would have been doing in Ohio to have met his wife, Hannah Johnson. Family tradition says that he was a pilot for boats on the Erie Canal. But, it appears that he may very well have been also visiting cousins who lived there. I'm trying to locate his wife's family (Hannah Johnson was born 1824/25), and according to the 1840 census, there are five potential fathers, supposing that she came from Medina, OH, herself, which seems likely. How much does anybody know about the Alden clans in Ohio ca. 1835-65?
