John Alden was the cooper, he did sign the compact by the way.  Priscilla made the journey with her parents William and Alice Mullins and married John in this country.  Looks like we are related (out "on the shirttail" as my mother liked to say)  Richard and Elizabet Warren are also in my tree.
Yes, that doesn't surprise me. It's my understanding that there are something like 10,000,000 Americans descended from the Aldens

I have been lurking around this thread.
My GGrandfather, a Civil War veteran from Michigan, was Orsemus Milton Doty, a direct descendant of Edward Doty.
Edward Doty's passage to the New World was as an indentured servant.

So there you have it. We came in through the back door.
