The Mayflower Families Through Five Generations book (Volume 13) for William White says this about Deborah, wife of Sylvanus White::

"It is suggested she was the dau. of Richard and Elizabeth (Warren) Church, b. Hingham 27 Jan 1656/7.

"Administration on the estate of Sylvanus White of Scituate was granted to his father Peregrine White, Esq. 30 June 1688; Deborah White swore to the inventory of her husband the same day. No further record of Deborah has been found in Plymouth County records."

There is no evidence to support a conclusion that Deborah Church born 1657 is the wife of Sylvanus White. The General Society of Mayflower Descendants has no evidence of the surname or parents of Deborah.
