  8. Joseph's birth is known to be after 22 May 1627 because he is not listed in the Pilgrim's Division of Cattle on that date. See, for example, Source:MD, 1:150 or Source:Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States. Records of the Colony of New Plymouth, in New England, vol. 10 (Deeds), p. 10, which gives the fourth lot as containing only John, Prissilla, Elizabeth and "Joh." Alden.
