About Sarah Standish (Alden)

Source: 12/22/2009, http://www.alden.org/aldengen/pafg02.htm#6.

6. Sarah Alden (John ) was born about 1630/1640 in Duxbury, Plymouth, MA, US. She died before 13 Jun 1688.

Sarah married Alexander Standish about 1660 in Plymouth, Plymouth, MA, US. Alexander was born in 1626 in Plymouth, Plymouth, MA, US. He died on 6 Jul 1702 in Duxbury, Plymouth, MA, US.

They had the following children:

  1. Lorah Standish
  2. Lydia Standish
  3. Mercy Standish
  4. Elizabeth Standish
  5. Sarah Standish
  6. Miles Standish
  7. Ebenezer Standish
  8. David Standish was born about 1675. He died before 14 Feb 1689.

--------------------

Her marriage to Myles Standish's son and her first cousin , Alexander, undercuts any idea of a long-standing feud between the Aldens and the Standish clan. In fact, there is much evidence to suggest that John and Myles remained lifelong friends or, at the minimum, associates. Sarah and Alexander lived in Duxbury until Sarah’s death sometime before June 1688. (Alexander subsequently married Desire Doty, a twice widowed daughter of Pilgrim Edward Doty.) They had seven or possibly eight children. The Duxbury house where they lived still stands.
