Mayflower Ancestor

descendant of Richard Warren through his daughter, Elizabeth Warren Warren-31
Deborah (Carder) Mayes is a descendant of Mayflower Passenger Richard Warren.


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.

Followed Tags
Deborah is a Wiki Genealogist following these tags:
I had several ancestors serve in the American Revolution and I am the registrar for my local chapter of DAR.
My Alford ancestors came from Ireland. Most lived in the area of Lawrence and Clarion Counties, Pennsylvania. My great grandfather was James Pollock Alford. His daughter, my great grandmother, Mary Alice Alford moved from Pennsylvania to Lake County, Ohio with her mother Eunice Morrison Alford, then to Logan County, Ohio with her husband, Nathan Isaac Carder.
John Mahlon Carder (Carder-350) is my 3rd great grandfather. I have never been able to learn who his parents were so, after 20 years, I still can't go back any farther on my Carder family. Any help would be appreciated!
So many Cheneys! I descend from the Lawrence Cheney line in England. Starting with my Revolutionary ancestors, I descend from William who died at Bunker Hill, his son, Thomas, his son, Ebenezer, his son, William, his son, Francis Owen, his son, Earl J., his daughter and my mom, Wilma Jean.
I'm interested in the Cherokees, especially in Ohio.
I have at least 100 unconnected profiles in my watchlist that I will be working to connect.
I descend from Reverend James Copus who was born in Greene County, Pennsylvania and was killed in a massacre at his home in Ashland County, Ohio.
My 3rd great grandfather was William H. Dobbins who married Mary E. Goldsberry on August 7, 1828 in Ross County, Ohio. I descend through their daughter, Eliza Jane who married John Mahlon Carder on April 11, 1855 in Greene County, Ohio. I would like to learn more about William and Mary, especially who their parents and siblings were.
Sampson Mason and Mary Elizabeth Butterworth are my 8th great grandparents. I descend through their son, Pelatiah.
I'm interested in the lives and history of the Mayflower passengers and their families at Plymouth.
I descend from Richard Warren through his daughter, Elizabeth, and would like to hear from other Warren descendants.
My 3rd great grandmother was Shawnee. I'm mainly interested in Shawnee and Cherokee but have also Potawatomie, Chickamauga, and Melungeon in my family tree so also have interest in them.
My 4th great grandfather was James Neely, born about 1765-1775 and died soon before 9 October 1826 in Sugar Creek Township, Greene County, Ohio. His father's name was also supposed to be James Neely, born in Dublin, Ireland and his mother's given name was supposed to be Nancy who supposed was from the Philadelphia area. I would like to find more on them.
I have started a one name study for the name, Carder
I am prepared to work on those early ancestors!
My 3rd great grandmother, Mary Goldsberry was Shawnee and I'm interested in her culture and people.
I am the profile manager for the Trail of Tears profile. This was an important and tragic part of our Native American history that needs to be remembered.

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.
