Recovered Treasures - Jean Patricia (Mitchell) Wallace

Recovered Treasures

In June of 2015, I was browsing Ebay and found for sale a Mayflower Society  - John Alden descendancy record.  This record was the complete approved & certified packet, including the descendancy line documentation, the certificate, and other assorted Mayflower correspondence.  I was disappointed that anyone would sell these documents and wondered what the reason was for selling such a personally cherrished family historical record.

Without presenting great detail, I will say that I did took a day and researched this member of the Maine Society of Mayflower Descendants.  The following information is provided.  If you can prove that you are related to this person and would like to recover these original documents, please contact us at:
