In the 1800 census for the Hillsboro District of Granville County, North Carolina, the family of Bryant Cavender comprised: 1 male and 1 female 26-45 years of age, 1 female under 10 years of age, 1 slave, and 1 other free person not taxed. Also living in the same location was the family of John Cavender which comprised: 1 male and 1 female 26-45 years of age, 1 male 10-16, 1 male under 10 and 1 other free person not taxed, and the family of Thomas Cavender which comprised 1 male and 1 female 16-45, 2 males 10-16, 1 male under 10, and 1 other free person not taxed. 355

(III) JOSEPH CAVENDER (“Joseph C. Cavender”?) born either about 1766493 or about 1780476 in North Carolina, or about 1778 in Westmoreland County, Virginia.494 In fact, it is further said that he was born about 1766 in Westmoreland County, Virginia.

In 1804, he was living in Gwinnett County, Georgia (or in Hog Mountain, Jackson County, Georgia493) with his older sister Catherine Cavender Cornwell ("Catherine Cornwell") and her husband, Elijah Cornwell.

He married Miriam Henry (“Myram Henry”) about 1808-1810 in Pendleton, South Carolina, according to an interview with one of his daughters (i.e., “Emmaline Cavender”)470, and he died about 1858 in Maury County, Tennessee 494. Miriam Henry was born about 1790 in Orange County, North Carolina to William Henry born about 1762 in Pennsylvania? and Jane Russell born in North Carolina, and she died before 1840 in Georgia. The daughter of Joseph Cavender apparently also stated that she had a brother named Milton Henry Cavender (“Milton Cavender”, “M.H. Cavender” & “Milton H. Cavender”) who cannot be accounted for.

However, others believe Joseph Cavender was married in Westmoreland County, Virginia, and still others believe he may have married a Jency Williamson ("Jincy Williamson"?) on August 12, 1809 in Oglethorpe County, Georgia,373 then moved to Maury County, Tennessee in the 1830s, and died about 1858 Maury County, Tennessee. A Joseph Cavender was living next door to William Henry (Miriam Henry’s father) in Gwinette County, Georgia in 1820.

In fact, still another source contends that it was a James Cavender who married Miriam Henry, which apparently is based on the fact that Miriam Henry’s father, William Henry, named a James Cavender as a legatee in his Last Will and Testament. However, this contradicts the statement said to have been made by Joseph Cavender’s daughter, Emmaline Cavender, that she was the daughter of Joseph Cavender and Miriam Cavender.

However, it appears that by 1820 the above Joseph Cavender had moved from South Carolina to Gwinnett County, Georgia, and by 1824 he had settled in Fayette County, Georgia470, and moved to Maury County, Tennessee in the 1830s where he died either about 1858493 & 494 or about 1850.
