My Ancestor, Mayflower Descendant - Ruth was the sixth or quite possibly the seventh born child of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins Alden who came to America on the Mayflower in the year 1620.

Her parents married in Plymouth, Mass. in 1622 or 1623 and it was the first European-American wedding to take place. They are buried in the small town of South Duxbury that is north of Plymouth, at an old pioneer cemetery called Miles Standish Burial Ground. It is located south of where they settled in the town of Duxbury, on their 169 acre farm.

They were two of my 2,248 ancestral grandparents going back eleven generations from just one parent. Now, try and imagine how many aunts, uncles and cousins, both I and you have had over the same time frame. And how related we all are. For every generation you go back, the number doubles again and the population continues to decrease as you go back further and further in time. It doesn't take to much of a leap from there to imagine how we're all part of the same human family, going all the way back to east Africa. Grandma Ruth was the younger sister of Elizabeth; Sarah, John, Joseph, and Jonathan and the older sister of Priscilla, David, Mary, and Rebecca.

Ruth married John Bass [1632-1716] on February 3,1657, when she was 22 or 23 years of age and they had eight children together. The United States 2nd. President John Adams (1797-1801) and 6th. President John Quincy Adams (1825-1829) are two of their descendants.

Children: John Bass Jr, Samuel Bass, Ruth Bass Webb, Joseph Bass, Hannah Bass Adams, Mary Bass Webb Copeland Spear, Sarah Bass Thayer, and Philip Bass.

I am a descendant of them and their son Samuel Bass [1660-1751]; a 3rd. generation descendant, who was born in Braintree, Mass. Ruth died when she was about 40 years of age... There's one more thing that I'd be remiss if I didn't add, the rest is all history... GRATITUDE: Be grateful for the kindly friends that walk along your way; be grateful for the skies of blue that smile from day to day; be grateful for the health you own, the work you find to do, for round about you there are men less fortunate than you.~~~ Be grateful for the growing trees, the roses soon to bloom, the tenderness of kindly hearts that shared your days of gloom; be grateful for the morning dew, the grass beneath your feet, the soft caresses of your babes and all their laughter sweet.~~~ Acquire the grateful habit, learn to see how blest you are, how much there is to gladden life, how little life to mar! And what if rain shall fall today and you with grief are sad; be grateful that you can recall the joys that you have had. ~Unknown~
