From D.A.R. Magazine (Vol 50) in a Tribute to New Castle, NH Church:
"We must not omit a tribute to the Rev Lucius Alden well known and well loved throughout the parish He ministered to the church from 1846 to 1872 and was a direct descendant of John Alden although he never found for himself a Priscilla He was the most modest gentle and reticent of men and while a man of wealth lived in a most frugal style using his means for relieving the poor and for various charities Mr Al bee beautifully says of him It was not safe to speak disrespectfully of Parson Alden even among men who had never heard him preach in the course of their lives Such is the force of an upright perfect character it commands respect without effort without contact at a distance the rumor of it even goes to the hearts of men".
