Tombstone Tuesday - Timothy Alden

Timothy Alden is my maternal 5th great-grandfather and the great-great-grandson of John and Priscilla (Mullen) Alden.  

Timothy was the son of Israel and Lucy (Markham) Alden. 
He was born 23 Feb 1770 in Tyringham, Berkshire County, Massachusettes.
Timothy died 29 Sept 1859 in Monroeton, Bradford, PA.
(See the post Using County Histories to Find Information-Timothy Alden from Sunday to find out more about Timothy.)

Timothy Alden is buried in the Monroeton Cemetery in Monroeton, Bradford County, Pennsylvania.  I took this picture on a quick stop in the late 1990s.  Wish I had found it before the stone became weathered to know what else it may have said.
If you have any corrections or additions or stories to share I look forward to hearing them.
Enjoy the journey,


  1. Exciting to have that Alden connection. I've never seen a headstone with that kind of damage. Almost like someone gouged it. Too bad. But, even damaged, it's nice to have these old headstones still around.
