In 1818, James Cavender purchased 50 acres on Duchman's Creek, Rowan County, North Carolina from Daniel Crouse and Franny Crouse (“Fanny Crouse”?, “Frances Grouse” & "Frainey Crouse"?). William Crouse and Haley Tatum were appointed executors and Joshua Hendrix ("Joshua Hendricks"?) and Robert Foster were witnesses.371

On January 7, 1826, Joel Banks sold 82.5 acres on the North Yadkin River to Daniel Click, both of Rowan County, North Carolina for $247. The property was situated next to Daniel Click, John Smith, Deadman (“Dedman”?) and John Banks. The indenture was witnessed by Elisha Butler and Nicholas Click, Jr.371

On August 19, 1828, James Cavender sold to Elizabeth Crump and Ronald Crump, all of Rowan County, North Carolina, 160 acres at the mouth of Reedy Run on the south side of Dutchmans Creek and Yadkin River for $320. The indenture was witnessed by John Jones and John Lynn.371

On February 19, 1833, a James Cavender of Rowan County, North Carolina sold to Jehu Foster of Rowan County his acreage on the Main Yadkin River next to the mouth of Dutchmans Creek. The indenture was witnessed by Burton Craige and Radford Bailey. The acreage was formerly owned by Thomas Foster and later became part of the dower of the widow of Thomas Foster and who later became the wife of John W. Robertson ("John Robertson") who conveyed it by deed of trust on June 5, 1832.371

In 1837, he conveyed 200 acres of land to James Smith and William March, which strongly indicates that James Cavender did, in fact, marry Mary Smith in 1794.

Apparently as a result of James Smith and William March, Sr. having taken a so-called "writ of sequestration" (apparently a foreclosure) on the property of James Cavender for $2,000 security on the estate of Thomas Hainline, with William March, Sr. as surety, and, as a result, James Cavender was indebted to Robert G. Hargrave ("Robert Hargrave") for $350, to the Cape Fear Bank at Salem for $240, to Michael Click for $80, and to Charles Harris for $160. On August 19, 1837, James Cavender sold the following property to James Smith and William March, Sr.: 200 acres on the Yadkin River known as the Potts tract which was adjacent to Caudle L. Wyatt ("Caudle Wyatt"); 78 acres known as the Lewis Tract; 140 acres known as the Thompson Tract on Mill Creek adjacent to H.L. Tatum and Samuel Tatum; 73 acres known as the Rouze Tract adjacent to Aaron W. Wyatt ("Aaron Wyatt") for a total acreage of 587 acres. He also sold 7 Negroes and all his personalty. The indenture was witnessed by J.A. Clement and James R. Linn ("James Linn" & "James Lynn").

Harden Cavender who was born October 20, 1851 in Pike County, Illinois, after the 1850 census was taken. If the actual date of marriage of Clemeth Cavender to Comfort Slavens is correct, then Joseph Cavender born about 1828 and Sarah Cavender born about 1829 mentioned below could not have been children of Clemeth Cavender.
