Obama's Cousins - Richard Cheney Descendants
Posted by: Jackson Day (ID *****7357) Date: April 02, 2008 at 02:57:50

As many of you know, Richard Cheyney (or Cheney), Immigrant to Maryland in the 1600s, has descendants of national interest today -- Vice President Richard Cheney and Candidate Barack Obama. They are 9th cousins and their lines of descent, as I have them, are shown below.

If any of you are fellow members of the social networking site "Facebook", I started a group called "Barack Obama's Relatives". There must be tens of thousands of other descendants of Richard Cheyney III -- all related to Obama and the VP. Come join us. (Or start a group called Vice President Cheney's Relatives, and I'll join.)

Barack Obama's line of descent:

1.       Richard Cheyney III, b. 1616 & Mary Charity Wood
2.       Anne Cheney, b. 1660, and John Jacob
3.       Elizabeth Jacob, b. 1683, and Mareen Brasseur “Younger” Duvall
4.       Jacob Duvall, b. 1715, and Mary Miles
5.       John Miles Duvall, b. 1745 & Anne Tarleton
6.       Gabriel Duvall, b. 1787 and Mary Grable
7.       Louisiana Duvall, b. 1826, and George Washington Overall
8.       Susan C. Overall, b. 1849, and Christopher Columbus Clark
9.       Gabriella Clark, b. 1877, and Harry Ellington Armour
10.       Ruth Lucille Armour, b. 1900, and Ralph Waldo Emerson Dunham, Sr.
11.       Stanley Armour Dunham, b. 1918, and Madelyn Lee Payne
12.       Stanley Anne Dunham, b. 1942, and Barrack Hussein Obama, Sr.
13.       Barrack Hussein Obama, Jr, b. 1966

And here’s the line to VP Cheney

1.       Richard Cheyney III, b. 1616 and Mary Charity Wood
2.       Elizabeth Cheyney, b. 1652, and William Ijams
3.       Elizabeth Ijams, b. 1671, and Samuel Duvall
4.       Elizabeth Duvall, b. 1697, and Edward Tyler
5.       Edward Tyler, b. 1718, and Nancy Ann Langley
6.       Robert Duval Langley Tyler, b.1 751, and Margaret
7.       Robert Tyler, b. 1773, and Sarah Prichard
8.       Willett tyler, b. 1808, and Rachel A. Montgomery
9.       James Alexander Tyler and Sarah Elizabeth Swift
10.       Margaret Ellen Tyler, b. 1877, and Thomas Herbert Cheney
11.       Richard Herbert Cheney, b. 1915, and Marjorie Lorraine Dickey
12.       Richard Bruce Cheney

VP Cheney and Barrack Obama are 9th cousins, once removed.

And since I got these lines of descent off the internet, there may be errors -- I'd appreciate any corrections!

Here's my own line:

1. Richard Cheyney III, b 1616 & Mary Charity Wood
2. Anne Cheney, b. 1660 and John Jacob
3. Charity Jacob, b. 1680 and Richard Duckett
4. John Duckett, b. 1706 and Sarah Haddock Waring
5. Rebecca Duckett, b. 1742, and Edward King
6. John Duckett King, b. 1778 and Jemima Miles
7. Jemima King, b. 1805, and John Lewis Purdum
8. Rachel Browning Purdum, b. 1835, and George Washington Wesley Walker
9. Rachel Vivia Cochel Walker, b. 1874, and Roby Franklin Day
10. Jackson Wesley Day, b. 1910, and Ruthlydia Slayton 11. Jackson Harvey Day, b. 1942.
