So, I see no scholarly sources on this profile.

(1) is a personal family tree, and I see no sources.

(2) My understanding is that an LDS Pedigree Resource File is a collection of family trees submitted by people all over the world.

I found the source listed on this profile "Genealogy and Family History of the State of Maine." Page 398, the page in the source, had no Smalley or Walden, so it is error. I searched under "Smalley" and "Walden" with only 2 hits regarding their daughter, Mary. Another hit on "Smalley explaining that some members of the family spell name either way.

In my opinion, that source is not beneficial to this profile.

I had already created an "Ann Unknown" before I found this profile.

So the two Ann Waldens, this one -590 and -729 will need to be merged.

Deleting the GM source on this profile since link leads to sketch for John Small.

She married John Smalley, so I will add new source citation with link to John Smalley's sketch.

Despite the similarity of surnames Ann Walden married John Smalley not John Small, The last name at birth on this profile needs to be changed to Unknown, or I can do so if you have no objection

Anne could not have been born in Plymouth, MA in 1616. Either the date or the location is incorrect.

Walling-166 and Walden-729 appear to represent the same person because: Similar name, similar details

Anne is 24 degrees from Rosa Parks, 20 degrees from Anne Tichborne and 14 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
