She died on December 25, 1820 at the age of 60 and is buried in the Pigeon Run Cemetery (“Pidgeon Run Cemetery”) in Red Lyon Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware. This cannot be the same Margaret who married the particular John Cavender who was also born about 1760 in New Castle Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware and who also married a Margaret, as the second mentioned Margaret who also married a John Cavender who was born about 1760 was still living on August 21, 1844 when, at the age of 80, she applied for a Revolutionary War pension for her husband's prior service. 14, 130, 255, 269, 281 , 285, 304, 313, 337 & 355

In his Will, John Byrd mentions his sister Joanna Byrd, his sister Sarah Bruce, she being the lawful daughter of Sarah Bruce and Thomas Bruce, and John Lisle to whom he left "my crop of corn and tobacco, except that part I agreed to let William Cavanner have."Richmond Co, Va Will Bk 6, p 269 1761/01/19 David Cavender posted bond and was appointed the administrator of the estate of George White of Dorchester County, Maryland.

Therefore, he would have been born prior to 1775. He married a Margaret who was born about 1760, died on December 25, 1820 at the age of 60 years. 269 & 313

Accompanied Captain Phillip on the first expedition to Port Jackson from Botany Bay. In March 1790 he was stranded at Norfolk Island when the Sirus was wrecked.

1762/06/26 The Last Will and Testament of Benjamin Caul ("Benjamin Cave"?) was probated in Orange County, Virginia and he left to his daughter, Mrs. Ann Cavender (formerly "Ann Caul" & "Ann Cave"?), one Negro wench named Violet. 355 1762/06/xx An unidentified Cavender married Ann Cave ("Ann Caul"?), daughter of Benjamin Cave ("Benjamin Caul"?), in Orange County, Virginia, as indicated in Benjamin Cave's Last Will and Testament of the same date. 133, 294 & 350 1762/10/18 The date of probation of the estate of John Thomas, deceased, of Dorchester County, Maryland in which James Cavender was named as a creditor.392 1762/10/23 James Cavenier ("James Cavender"?) was born on this date to James Cavenier and Lucey Cavenier ("Lucy Cavenier", "Lucey Cavender"? & "Lucey Cavender"?) in Beverly, Essex County, Massachusetts. 397 1762 (1) Date of birth of the particular Hugh Cavander ("Hugh Cavender"?) whose birthplace is unknown, and is listed on page 295 of the 1840 Census for Greenfield Township, Fairfield County, Ohio. At that particular point in time, his family consisting of 2 females ages 10-15, 1 male age 15-20, 1 female age 50-60, and 1 male age 70-80. Hugh Cavander's family apparently did not move to Greenfield Township until some time after 1830 as he is not listed in the 1830 census reports for that year. Hugh Cavander died August 30, 1842 at the age of 80, and is buried in the Greenfield Township, Fairfield County, Ohio Cemetery next to a Presbyterian Church whose records are non-existent. No other Cavander is buried in that particular cemetery nor is any Cavender buried in any other cemetery in Greenfield Township in Fairfield County, Ohio. A Hugh Cavinner ("Hugh Cavander"? & "Hugh Cavender") is listed in the 1839 Quadrennial Enumerations of Greenfield Township, Fairfield County, Ohio which listed all males over 21 years of age, but he is not in the 1831 Quadrennial Enumerations. So, apparently he did not live in Greenfield Township for more than 11 years.313 It is quite possible that he is a descendant of the Hugh Cavenah who immigrated to this country from Bristol, England at the age of 11-12 years to be an indentured servant in Virginia.
(2) Garret Cavender ("Garrett Cavender"?) married Jane in Pennsylvania? about 1762. On August 30, 1746, Garret Cavenaugh ("Garret Cavender"?), servant from Ireland was assigned to Francis Battin of Gloucester County, Pennsylvania for a period of 4 years. 124, 136 & 350 This may be the same Garrett Cavender who received a land grant in Hampshire County, Virginia in 1800 which later became Hampshire County, West Virginia. Also, a Garrett Cavener ("Garrett Cavender"?) was a private in the roster of Captain Uriah Springer's Company from Monongalia County, West Virginia on service at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in 1781, which is near Monongahela in Washington County, Pennsylvania and also near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
(3) In 1762, Paulin Anderson (“Pauling Anderson”) paid 11 tithes (sometimes "tithables", "tithes" or "tythes") on the following persons then living in Raleigh Parish, Amelia County, Virginia: John Townsend (“John Townshend” & “John Townsing”?) and Hugh Cavinder ("Hugh Cavender"), who were probably his two overseers of his plantation, plus 9 slaves named Frank, Sam, Toby, Merchant (“Marchant”?), Citt, Robin, Major, Myrtilla (“Martilla”?) and Sarah. Paulin Anderson's 2221 acre plantation was located on the upper side Flatt Creek (actually "Flat Creek", sometimes “Platt Creek”) and between Flat Creek and the Appomattox River in Amelia County, Virginia, and apparently Paulin Anderson was still living in King and Queen County, Virginia. The Appomattox River is a western branch of the James River which runs through present day Richmond, Virginia. Pauling Anderson continued to pay a tithe tax in Raleigh Parish, Amelia County, Virginia on Hugh Cavender and others (but not on himself) in each subsequent year until the year 1768, at which time Hugh Cavender began paying his own tithe tax. There is no evidence that Paulin Anderson ever moved from King and Queen County, Virginia. It is to be noted that on the tithe list prepared the next year by Edmond Booker, he spelled Hugh Cavender’s name as Hugh Cavenor. Amelia Co. tithables by TLG Genealogies 350 & 393
The following additional persons paid the following tithe taxes in Raleigh Parish, Amelia County, Virginia in 1762:
Francis Anderson (“Zeanois Anderson”?) paid 11 tithes, one on Daniel Fragsdale (“Daniel Fragodule”?), and 10 on slaves Shill, Jack, Charles, Jemmie, Care, Ceasar, Betty, Lucy, Judy and Jenny. (Apparently, he was not then living in Raleigh Parish.)
