Lineages for Joining Societies

As I uncover family history, I find ancestors that qualify us to join certain societies or groups. I will list those societies here and the ancestor that relates us to the event.

Mayflower Society

Here are the three Pilgrims of which we descend. I am recorded into the Mayflower Society as Grammy would have been quite proud of that. My inclusion means by default that she is included. There is a brick in the walkway of the Alden house in memory of her and the work I continue in her honor.

About the Society The Society of Descendants of the Colonial Clergy was incorporated in Massachusetts on February 9, 1933. Its major purposes are to:

  • Cherish and maintain the memory of the lives and works of colonial clergy of America
  • Perpetuate their spirit and the religious freedom which they sought in the New World
  • Keep in remembrance the churches which they served
  • Promote the fitting celebration of anniversaries, both of colonial ecclesiastical bodies and churches and events in the lives of their clergy.
  • Collect and preserve documents, histories, biographical sketches and memorials pertaining to the colonial clergy of America and the parishes which they served
  • Promote friendship and the descendants of colonial clergy.

The Society has published Pedigrees of Descendants of the Colonial Clergy, which is updated at intervals. It has authorized the publication of a series of books on the colonial clergy, written by the late Frederick Lewis Weiss.

John and Priscilla Alden are our grandparents. The Alden house remains and has a large active society that meets in person once a year for a family portrait. The house is an active museum and there is also an on-line virtual tour.

The brick walkway from the barn to the house contains bricks with the names of the four Whittall children and their grandmother, Sara Balentine. It is the children s memorial to their Grandmother.

For anyone wishing to join this society, our lineage has been established by two separate routes. To join, you only need prove your lineage from Sara Balentine. She would be pleased and proud.John and Priscilla Alden have been titled America’s First Couple. It is wonderful at Thanksgiving to know that these, our Grandparents were key participants in that very first Dinner of Thanks.5959353
