Now that's about as far back as I can go.   For those of you who have done some research on your own, please check your family records and let us know if you make a positive match!   If you have corrected or additional information for our pages, including pictures, please email me so that I may update our records.  Please include your source material so that I may confirm validity before posting.

NOTE:   There are GED files floating around the internet that show John Samuel Mardis as Thomas' father, and a William Mardis/Marders as John Samuels' father. (Both from Virginia)  I have not included these 2 generations in my lineage as there does not appear to be any evidence supporting this connection.  If you have documentation certifying this link, please let me know.
