Shelly announced today that Des Plaines Mayor Herbert Behrel and other officials of the Chicago suburb will visit Freeport Tuesday to examine the downtown plaza progress. The Des Plaines delegation, Mayor Shelly and other officials will tour the plaza in the morning and have lunch as guests of Greater Downtown Freeport, Inc. at noon at the Hotel Freeport. Des Plaines officials are reportedly interested in the mall- plaza idea for their city. at Dixon during a visit by Shelly last week. Revisions were proposed by the City Council traffic and parking committee and City Engineer Robert L. Kintzel. Eastbound Illinois 75 traffic will be routed east on Douglas, south on Adams, east on Main for one block, north on Liberty for a block and then east on Stephenson. Presently the eastbound . Illinois 75 traffic turns left at the intersection of Adams and Stephenson. The two blocks of Stephenson Street between Liberty and State that is now two-way traffic will revert to one-way westbound. A single block of Chicago Avenue between Douglas and Clark will become two-way. Presently it is one-way southbound. One aim of the Illinois 75 route change for eastbound traffic is to eliminate congestion at the corner of Stephenson and Adams. The approved change was originally advocated by city officials to the State Highway Department when construction started on the downtown plaza, Shelly points out. Westbound traffic for Illinois 75 through the downtown will continue in the present pattern. The route is west on Stephenson, north on Adams and west on Clark. Alda G. Saxby PEARL CITY — Alda G.

Mayflower Link Indicated Freeport A/den Traces Family Tree John Alden Views Documents By MAUREEN JENSEN Journal-Standard Reporter John Brewster Alden, 858 W. Elk St., believes he's found evidence that proves him a 10th generation direct descendant of John Alden — the shy young man of the early 1600s who was the go-between in the courtship of Miles Standish and Priscilla Mullin. "Proving my ancestry was time consuming," the Freeport resident said. "I searched through family records at the State Historical Library in Madison, Wis., each night for six months. "The whole idea of getting to the bottom of my ancestry seemed a trifle impossible," Mr. Alden said. "I began in the dark, without so much as knowing my grand father's name. The research wasn't easy but I'll have to admit it was interesting enough. Traces Family Line A few employes of the state library in Madison were ex- tremely helpful and some seemed as interested in my family background as I was. "I made photostat copies of all records of my descendants, the coat of arms and my ancestor's signatures." He said he was able to trace the family line from its beginning in Massachusetts to Connecticut, to New York and from there to Michigan and later to Dakota, 111. "Along with the Alden coat of arms I also discovered that whether or not I have any legal right to it can be debated. It seems that the genealogy of my ancestor is not certain," he said. "I learned that John Alden was orphaned at an early age and had to be raised by his uncles in England. Unless the history of John Alden can successfully be traced further, no descendant of his may have a right to claim the family Coat of Arms." Mayflower Society Mr. Alden has applied for membership in the Society of Mayflower Descendants and is awaiting acceptance. The society was organized in 1894 by direct descendants of Mayflower passengers. Purpose of the organization, Alden said, is to preserve their memory, their records, their history and all the facts relating to them, their ancestors and their posterity. " John Alden was born in 1599. When he was 21 he worked his way to America as a "copper" tending the cargo aboard the Mayflower. In December of 1620, three months after the ship had set sail, a new colony was begun at Plymouth, Mass. Many died that first winter, three of whom were the parents and brother of Priscilla Mullin, 18, who in 1623, became John Alden's wife. Becomes Legend Alden is remembered most for the role he played in the triangle courtship of Standish, Priscilla and himself. John, according to Mr. Alden's finding, was serving as „ ioldier under Standish, his good friend and captain. He courtec Priscilla for Standish and pro. posed to her for him. Standish's plan backfired. Ti Alden's stand-in proposal, Pris cilia replied, "If I am not worth the wooing, I am surely no worth the winning. Speak foi thyself John" - John did, and they were married. Priscilla Lives On The 20th century Mr. Alden is employed by Micro Switch is married and has five child ren. There is still a PriscilL in the Alden family, his sister Mrs. Neal Bade of Dakota. Mr. Alden said he wants trace his mother's genealogy. "I have this strong hunch, he said, "that my mother's an cestors, the Butterfields, migh just have been the organizer of the pony express and stag, coach run. "There's no telling who might discover on the other sid of the 'tree'", he said. Leroy Piper POLO — Leroy Piper of Polo died in his home Sunday morn- ng. He was superintendent of the sewer disposal department for many years and recently served two terms as alderman. He was born Sept. 4, 1890, n rural Polo, son of Lawrence and Mary (Quest) Piper.
