I have been working on my family history since 1998. Along the way, I began helping others as a genealogical library volunteer. In 2004, a local genealogical organization asked if I would speak at one of their meetings. Apparently, they liked what they heard and by word of mouth, I began getting invitations to speak all over the state of Ohio. For more, see my website and blog.

Hi Deborah. Here is the path to Francis Chickering.

Deborah (Carder) Mayes and Al Clements are both descendants of Francis Chickering.

1. Deborah is the daughter of Wilma Jean Cheney (1931-2016) [confident] 2. Jean is the daughter of Earl J. Cheney (1892-1946) [confident] 3. Earl is the son of Martha Jane (Uncapher) Cheney (1851-1931) [confident] 4. Martha is the daughter of John Michael Uncapher (1814-1867) [confident] 5. John is the son of Andrew Uncapher (1782-1826) [confident] 6. Andrew is the son of Mary (Mowry) Ungefehr (1745-1851) [confident] 7. Mary is the daughter of Urania (Paine) Mowry (1706-1772) [confident] 8. Urania is the daughter of John Paine (1658-1718) [unknown confidence] 9. John is the son of Anne (Chickering) Metcalf (abt.1630-1689) [confident] 10. Anne is the daughter of Francis Chickering (1606-1658) [confident] This makes Francis the eighth great grandfather of Deborah.

This comes from the Genealogical Relationship Finder at the bottom of a profile page. Al

Hi Deborah. I am not related to John Henry Copus but I am related to you. We are 9th cousins once removed through Francis Chickering. John's wife is a Rader and that is what I was working on when John came up as a spouse.

Have a nice day and stay safe. Al Clements

Well, you may not be blood related, but you're not that far apart connections-wise!

Amy Marcy Cheyney Beach is 18 Degrees from Deborah Mayes.  :)

I looked at the degree connection. I am apparently related to her through Hannah Eastman who is my blood relative.

Hi Deborah, I have a lot of Carders on my tree and would like to add them to the Carder one-name study. They are from Devon, where the name seems to be reasonably common. Do you have a section for Devonshire Carders? I'm new to one-name studies and don't know how they work, so maybe you can coach me, as I've just signed up to do one on the name Rodd and have no idea where to begin.

My Carders are descended from this one: see Carder-297

Hi Deborah. Cheney is on my husbands line and I hit a road block on Lawrence cheney, Immigrant and William Cheney, his supposed father from Thorngumbald, England. I'm looking for any information, with solid sources, that confirm the link. I tried to add to the wiki tree but it is not user friendly at all ( for me anyway) I have tons of sources, records etc..on many old names that came to America. Cheney is just one that is difficult to trace since it goes back pretty far.

Thank you for the reply =))

Welcome to the 1776 Project (, a subproject of the Military and War Project:

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow:

Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as
Deborah (Carder) Mayes participated in the American Revolution
for those who bore arms in the Revolution. Thank you.
