Jonathan Alden & abigell halat was marien Desember 10 1672
[footnote: "It has always been supposed that Jonathan Alden's wifes name before marriage was Ralat as the record appears, but it is proved satisfactorily at the present time that her name was Halat the H being supposed to be intended for the later R. W. Ellison Town Clerk Duxbury 1840"
The record is perfectly legible as I have copied it - "halat". The "y" and "p" of "mary pabodie" in the line above, run down into the "h" and evidently confused those inexperienced in reading ancient records. The proof referred to in the note is probably the will of Abigail Hallett's father, Andrew Hallett of Barnstable. - Editor.]
