Zachariah Alden was the eleventh child of John Alden, Jr. and his wife Elizabeth Phillips Everill Alden. He was born February 18,1672 at Boston, Massachusetts. He was baptized at the Old South Church of Boston on February 23, 1672. He married on January 13, 1700 Mary Viall. She was the daughter of John Viall and his wife Mary (Williams) Viall. The Aldens had three children: Zachariah, Mary, and Elizabeth.

Zachariah graduated from Harvard College in 1692. He was apparently a mariner by profession, as was several of his brothers. He seems to have died at sea. His estate was declared insolvent.

Hello. I'm taking part in this weekend's attempt to clean out the error reports. This profile is creating an error because the biography hasn't been cleaned from multiple past merges. Since it's a PPP, I'm asking that a PM do the clean-out. Thank you!
