Does anyone want to collaborate with me on John Alden of the Mayflower?

+5 votes

I am currently working on John Alden family and have been off and on for about 6 months. The scope is 3 generations starting with John and his wife Priscilla as generation 1 - merge, clean up biographies.  From time to time I will check back in with a status.  The families of Elizabeth and John, Jr. are completed.  Anyone want to look them over, note and or make corrections?   and/or coordinate with me?

Over time the requirements for working on profiles of people born before 1700 have increased. It is now necessary to pass the pre-1700 quiz. It is advisable also to join the Mayflower Project.  For more information, please see the Mayflower Project Page at

Hi Becky!

I edited the headline of your question from "Can G2G replace the Mayflower Google Group?" to "Does anyone want to collaborate with me on John Alden of the Mayflower?" The latter seemed more what you're asking and better for leaving here in G2G.

Regarding the latter ... we're working on a system that will enable you to get e-mail updates on G2G activity in tagged areas like Mayflower. When that happens I think this will be a more proper substitute for the Google Group. In the meantime, you might want to ask questions like the one about John Alden in the Google Group as well.

I may not be doing research in your kind of style.I have researched my family members that are directly related to the Alden Family. There is a book that has 8 generations researched. My line is connected to the Baily Chandler Line. I am not a professional genealogist. I have a BS & MS in science fields. The research that I have done prior to the Alden's was for the Daughters of the American Revolution and the United Daughters of the Confederacy.I was doing research for Colonial Dames when I found the Alden relationship.if anyone has questions, I will respond with iinformation that you may question.
President John Adams and President John Quincy Adams are decendents from Ruth Alden and John Bass, some of my ancestors. My mayflower families are Doty's Hopkins, Cooks and Smith's.
Yes that is true. I'd love to be able to help build the tree in any way I can as im also a direct  descendant of John Alden threw his third son Jonathan Alden my family has done lots of research on our family tree to prove our relation to him now we are all allowed to go to school for free
Have direct lineage John Alden through Samuel Alden most through maternal Hudson, Bixby,  Field and Harris side of family.

Hello Becky!

My name is Gerald (Jerry) Fuller.

I'm not sure how much assistance I can provide, but I am very willing to help.

My interest is very personal: BOTH my mother and father are Alden decendants! My father was named after Richard Warren of the Mayflower. My brother's middle name was Alden after John and Priscilla. My maternal grandparents (Clark and  nee Burgess) actually owned one of Priscilla's wedding slippers!!! Sadly it was eaten by the family dog. It was a blue silk brocade shoe on a sisal and wood 'wedge'- style sole and heel. I remember it like yesterday!

I would love to see just where we fit into the lineage. I am working very hard on the Fuller line- there's so much work! I'm hoping that if I can find a link Alden-Warren or Alden- Fuller, it would help me tie up my loose ends.

Feel free to e-mail me at if you are interetsted in my help.

Thanks for your answer.  Where are you in your Fuller research?  Who is your oldest ancestor?  Have you connected yet to a Fuller currently on WikiTree?


I'm new to this, so I tried replying via the notice I received re: this post from you. I didn't realize it was a 'no reply'. Please forgive the delay.

That turned out to be a good thing, though, as I discovered I 'd been following the wrong Samuel Fuller! I'd mistaken the Salem line for the Rehoboth, which is the correct one! As Frost said, "That made all the difference"!

I have been using mostly free sites and info passed on to me through discussion boards. I have been able to follow my lineage (with supporting evidence) back to Timothy Fuller. He was born Nov. 15, 1799 and died Dec 2, 1866 (a suicide). He married twice 1) Mar 24, 1824 Olive Horton b (Rehoboth, MA) 10/16/1806; d ??? but prior to1865. 2) Feb 2, 1865 Ellen  Hutton (Mrs. Edmond Taylor)Taylor b.1822 (England) d. Aug 25,1884 (Prov. RI.)
In addition, I have been able, through Ancestral files and Pedigree pages (which I realize are not 100%reliable sources), to go back with reasonable certainty through 3 further Timothys, to Samuel Fuller Jr. b.Nov 23, 1676 Rehoboth, MA d Dec 19, 1724 Rehoboth (or Dec14, 1701 Taunton, MA). He served in Captain Hunt's Co. in the militia. There is a note that he was born some months after his father, Samuel, Sr. died. Sr. was Capt. Samuel Fuller who died in King Phillip's War. b.1635 in Rehoboth, d. March 25, 1676 Married to Mary Ide sometime between 1653- 1657.
(That was the corrected info from my recent discovery.)
I have not knowingly connected with a Fuller here. I have invited one, though. I only recently have connected with a 'cousin' who is a genealogist and treasurer of the South Shore Genealogical Society in the Boston, MA area. Her connection is through my grandfather's brother, Warren Fuller. We have further connection through my great-grandmother, their mother, who was a German immigrant. She has more information- with actual documents from the Archives in Waltham, MA about the Fuller line.
I hope that helps.

I have him in my line along with several others. Take a look at my lines from Sarah Jane Arbold. I have some ancestors for him too.
