I am trying to prove the line to John Alden and Priscilla of the Mayflower. My GG Grandparents were George Washington Liston and Elizabeth Drake.Elizabeth Drake is the daughter of James Drake (1778-1865) and Sarah Paddock (1776-1818).I am working with the California Mayflower Society in attempt to establish a line back to John Alden and Priscilla Mullins of the Mayflower.It appears their son David Alden married Mary Southworth and their daughter Alice Alden married Judah Paddock.Judah had a son named Reuben who had a son named Ebenezer whose daughter was Sarah Paddock that married James Drake.
Until a few years ago the various Mayflower Societies accepted this as being true.An article was published that challenged this line.Now all the Mayflower Societies are asking proof of birth, etc., for Ebenezer and Reuben.
My goal is to reestablish the connectionbetween the Listons, Drakes, Paddocks, Aldens and Mullins and register my nine and five year-old grandsons to the California Mayflower Society and nationally.So, any information that you think might assist me in this endeavor would be appreciated.
Any data would be appreciated, thank youBob and Joanne Liston
