Warden Cousin Surfaces!

Mr. James W. Hayes of Virginia is a descendant of William and Margaret Nelson Warden of Charles County, MD. He contacted us after reading a copy of our book in the Alexandria, VA Library. His ancestor, James Warden, is the younger brother of our ancestor, Richard Warden — sons of William and Margaret Nelson Warden. During their lifetimes, James and Richard bought property adjacent to each other in Prince William County, VA. Both were planters who grew tobacco, fruit and other farm products. We were happy to share with him the Parchment stating William Warden was born in Elgin, Scotland and came to the Province of Maryland in 1698. Hopefully, we can trace our Warden roots further back in Scotland.
