I am looking for evidence of the Native American ancestry of Ryders or Riders of New England. Our search has been ongoing for decades. The belief in the family is that John Ryder iV or Rider grandmother was Naucet tribe near Cape Cod. The branch in our family goes back to the Mayflower Puritans.

For more information about the 1790 census record in Dutchess, New York for John Rider, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You may wish to search Ancestry.com or FamilySearch.org for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
For an overview on how to extend your research, we suggest that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists, as well as the FamilySearch Research wiki for United States Genealogy; Indigenous Peoples of Massachusetts; and Massachusett.
