"A Genealogical Letter from John4 Alden", in Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants. Mayflower Descendant: An Illustrated Quarterly Magazine of Pilgrim Genealogy, History and Biography, 6:110. No daughters mentioned in the will of Joseph Alden so this letter written by grandson of Joseph is the basis for identifying Mercy as Joseph's daughter. "Two of the daughters married into the family of Snow of Bridgewater - the other married a Burrill of Weymouth".

Family of John Alden, in General Society of Mayflower Descendants. Mayflower Families Through Five Generations: Descendants of the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Mass. December 1620. (New England - United States: General Society of Mayflower Descendants., Various), 16 (Part 1):101-102.
