On May 21, 1843, John Abercrumbie ("John Abercrombie"), agent for Rebecca Cavender, widow of Clemmeth Cavender ("Clemeth Cavender"? & "Clemith Cavender"?), all of Hall County, Georgia, filed a claim to lots No. 286-5-2 and 773-2-2 which were located in the Cherokee Indian Territory ("Cherokee Nations") of Lumpkin County, Georgia.371

Gold was “officially” found in Dalonega, Lumpkin County, Georgia in 1829 even though it was first reported by Desoto’s men. In 1830 the United States Government acquired the lands from the Cherokeee Indians and they were then evicted from the territory. In 1838, the United States Government operated a mint and struck off gold coins before it was taken over by the Confederate Army in 1861. Some gold mines apparently are still in operation.

On April 7, 1852, a first inventory was filed with respect to a rather substantial estate of Clemmeth Cavender, Sr. ("Clemeth Cavender" & "Clemith Cavender"?) of the 11th. District of Hall County, Georgia. (Of interest to note is that the Judge of the Hall County Probate Court in 1990 was Jack Cavender Hulsey, ("Jack Hulsey"), the great grandson of Clemeth Cavender. Clemeth Cavender, Sr. owned land in both Hall County and Lumpkin County, Georgia and had 6 slaves. He held personal notes of Clemmeth Cavender, Jr. ("Clemeth Cavender") for $50, John Abercrombie, Sr.(who married Fannie Cavender about 1821 or 1822408) for $11.50 and John D. Cavender ("John Cavender" & “J.D. Cavender”) for $75. The three were the sons and the son-in-law of Clemeth Cavender, Sr. The estate of Clemeth Cavender, Sr. was appraised by Joroyal Blackwell?, Banscme Barnes?, and Sampson Pierce.

On April 29, 1852, John Abercrombie, as the administrator of the estate of Clemeth Cavender, Sr., filed a listing of an auction sales, at which J.D. Cavender, Rebecca Cavender, and Jule Cavender ("Julie Cavender" & "Juley Cavender"?) made various purchases. On September 7, 1852, a further listing was filed with respect to the sale of lands and Negroes. Rebecca Cavender purchased some land located in Hall County and William Cavender purchased some land located in Lumpkin County. Also mentioned were personal notes due, with interest, from Joseph Cavender, John D. Cavender (“J.D. Cavender” & “John Cavender”), Clemmeth Cavender, Jr. ("Clemeth Cavender").

On November 25, 1852, a further listing of items sold mentioned Juley Cavender ("Julie Cavender"?), Rebecca Cavender and July Cavinder ("Julie Cavender"? & "Juley Cavender"?). Those listed as having received an equal share of the estate of Clemeth Cavender, Sr. were: Samuel Montgomery, Joseph Cavender, Hiram Montgomery (brother of Samuel Montgomery), Charles Head, Isaac Head, G.W. Cavender ("George Washington Cavender", “George W. Cavender”? & "George Cavender"), Rebecca Cavender, John D. Cavender ("John Cavender" & “J.D. Cavender”), William Cavender, Clemmeth Cavender ("Clemeth Cavender" & "Clemith Cavender"?) and John Abercrombie. 355 Clemeth Cavender, Sr. is buried in the Cavender-Barnes Cemetery in Murrayville, Hall County, Georgia, along with his wife, Rebecca Dedman, who was born October 5, 1778 in Rowan, County, North Carolina, the daughter of Edmond Dedmon ("Edmond Deadman" & "Edward Dedman"?) and Elizabeth Dedman (formerly Elizabeth Corbin") and died January 29, 1852 in Hall County, Georgia, together with their son, Clemeth Cavender, Jr. who died in 1898. Clemeth Cavender apparently had other marriage(s).

The following article was printed in the May 20, 1973 issue of The Times newspaper in Gainesville, Georgia:



"Clemeth Cavender, who came to this part of North Georgia, settled here while it was yet the Cherokee Nation (sometimes "Cherokee Indian" land). --- Family tradition says that Clement Cavender walked to Northeast Georgia from South Carolina, selected a place where he wanted to bring his family (i.e., near the Hall County and Lumpkin County lines), and then walked home to gather his family and belongings and moved here. A great-grandson was told by his grandmother, a daughter of Clement Cavender, that she was five years of age when the family moved to Georgia. That she well remembered that there was no bridge across the river where Thompson Bridge in now located. The family camped along the river banks until Clement could build a raft which required cutting logs and stringing them together with strong vines. After the raft was completed, Clement carried the horses across the river, to test the strength and safety of the raft, and then returned for the family and other belongings. Chement's daughter also told that no roads existed at that time and the family riding in the wagon made very slow progress as the father walked in front, slashing away with an axe trying to clear a path of travel. The Cavender family lived nearby, and on friendly terms with, the Cherokee Indians. A small creek near the Cavender home became a gathering place for the Indian squaws because of the water and the small trees furnished the items for weaving baskets. These baskets were sold or traded to white settlers for items they wanted."Clemeth Cavender's two married daughters, Fannie and Betsey also came with their families and lived nearby."

Clemeth Cavender, Sr. drew lots in Labersham County, Georgia and in Cherokee County, Georgia in two of the Georgia land lotteries.

In 1830, the Clemith Cavender family was living in Hall County, Georgia and his family consisted of 1 male and 1 female 50-60 year of age, 1 male 20-30 years of age, 1 male 15-20 years of age, 1 male and 1 female 10-15 years of age, 1 male 5-10 years of age, and 1 female 0-5 years of age. In 1840, the family was still living in Hall County but comprised Rebecca Cavender as head of the household age 50-60, 1 male 10-15 years, and 1 female 20-30 years of age. 355 It is stated in an article in the Sunday, May 27, 1973 issue of The Times in Gainesville, Georgia entitled: "Hall County history-Descendants of the Clemeth Cavenders" that Clement Cavender, Sr. and Rebecca Cavender had 12 children. Actually, it is believed that they had the following 14 children:
