Albert Harvey Alden (1835-1904), a descendant of Priscilla Mullen and John Alden of Mayflower fame, was a stonemason by trade, but also engaged in farming and teaming. His house on Alden Avenue, built in the 1860s, was constructed of granite from Hackensack Mountain. Other buildings in Warrensburgh which he constructed or helped construct include the Woodward Block, Burhans Mansion and Church of the Holy Cross. His three sons were also stonemasons. His son Seth is especially noted for his work on several of the Great Camps throughout the Adirondacks. Albert met with a tragic death. While descending Osborne Hill with a heavy load of coal he fell from his wagon into the road and one of the back wheels of the wagon passed over his head, killing him almost instantly. Former Richards Library Director, Sarah Farrar, is a descendant of the Aldens.
