  1. The New England Historical and Genealogical Register. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society), Vol. 52, p. 365.

    Children of Jonathan Alden and Abigail Hallet: 1) Elizabeth, b. Duxbury. Plymouth Probate 16:197, quitclaim, dated 2 Jul 1711, of Edmond Chandler and Elizabeth his wife [with other heirs] given to "our Brother John Alden of Duxburough ... to our parts ... of the lands that was our father Jonathan Alden's.

  2.   Plymouth Probate 3758 contains the will of "widdow Elizebeth Chandler of Duxborough", dated 1728, proved 1732. NEHGR, Vol. 52, p. 366, appears to identify this as belonging to "Elizabeth (Alden) Chandler", but it is Elizabeth (Buck) Chandler, the widow of Benjamin Chandler as can be determined from the children named therein. The same error is made in Source:Underhill, Lora Altine Woodbury. Descendants of Edward Small of New England (1910), Vol. 2, p. 882. (For example, the uncommonly named Keturah, b. 1689 by age at death, given as 1688 by Underhill though not found in Duxbury records, and named in the 1732 will clearly does not belong to a woman who parents married Dec 1672 and so would be no more than 15 when she was born. See MD, Vol. 14, p. 66 for a listing of the children of Benjamin Chandler and Elizabeth Buck; also MF5G, Vol. 16 (John Alden), Part 1, p. 122 which says "no evidence exists for any children" of Edmond Chandler and Elizabeth Alden, "with one possible exception", a John Chandler mentioned in the grandfather's will, parentage unknown.)
