Zachariah Alden
Hello! This is regarding Memorial # 197396172 for Zachariah Alden. Extensive research by the Mayflower Society has found that John Alden and Priscilla Mullins did not have a son named Zachariah:

"Some accounts of the family of John Alden include a son Zachariah, who had a daughter Anne Alden who married in 1699 Josiah Snell. In 1948 Hallock P. Long demonstrated that this son never existed, and that Anna Alden was almost certainly the daughter of John Alden's son Jonathan [NEHGR 102:82-86; see also MF 16:1:45, 122-23]."


Based on this, changed parents..
This memorial reflects a Zachariah Alden as the son of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins. Extensive research has shown this is not the case. There are two Zachariah Aldens, one born in 1666, died before 1672 and one born in 1672, died before 1709. Both of these were the sons of John Alden (1626) and Elizabeth Phillips making them the grandsons of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins.
