    No daughters mentioned in the will of Joseph Alden so this letter written by grandson of Joseph is the basis for identifying Mercy as Joseph's daughter. "Two of the daughters married into the family of Snow of Bridgewater - the other married a Burrill of Weymouth".

    Mercy Alden was born probably at Bridgewater say 1669 or earlier (married 1688); died after 28 July 1727 (husband's will).
