Jael Peterson Alden
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Dec. 17, 1781

Jael was the daughter of Isaac and Mary (Hobart) Peterson.

Jael married Timothy Hayward. She was his second wife. She was made a widow when he died in 1750. They had children, among them:
Ezra
Abraham
Lydia
Isaac


Jael married Captain Seth Alden on 19 April 1758 in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Province of Massachusetts Bay. She was his second wife. They did not have children.

Jael died in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Province of Massachusetts Bay.

Jael's grave is not marked with a headstone. Jael's name is not listed in Williams Latham's book "Epitaphs in Old Bridgewater", so a stone did not exist in the 1880s. The book "Vital Records of Bridgewater, Massachusetts to 1850" makes reference to PR3, which is the "record of burials in the South Precinct Burying Place, kept by Lt. John Washburn, 1739-1797". If Jael had a headstone, then the Vital Records would instead make reference to "G.R.7. - gravestone record, Old Graveyard". In this cemetery, families were buried in groups, so it is presumable that she is buried near her second husband Captain Seth Alden.
