JOHN HENRY CAVENDER (“John Cavender”, “J.H. Cavender” & “John H.

According to the Colonial and Revolutionary Lineages of America, Vol. 15, pages 524-526, a Henry Cavender who was also born about 1790, likewise lived in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, and had descendants who married into the Mott family whose descendants came over on the Mayflower. 279 The children of Henry Cavender were:

JAMES CAVENDER;

MARY ELIZABETH CAVENDER ("Mary Cavender", “M.E. Cavender” & “Mary E. Cavender”);

THOMAS S. CAVENDER ("Thomas Cavender", “T.S. Cavender” & "Thomas Slate Cavender"?) was born in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania about 1821, married Elizabeth Mott, became an attorney in Philadelphia, and in 1845 was a member of the Society of Friends, also called Pennsylvania Quakers. Elizabeth Mott was born about 1825, was the daughter of James Mott, and died in 1865. 79, 252 & 278 Apparently, the Motts came to this country on the Mayflower. Thomas Cavender practiced law for several years in the City of Philadelphia and then moved to South Carolina after retirement. It is of interest to note that another Thomas Slate Cavender (“Thomas S. Cavender” & “T.S. Cavender”) was living in Ohio on May 23, 1808, was living in Robertson County, Tennessee on November 21, 1808, and was living in Davidson County, Tennessee on April 26, 1809 and which was formerly a part of North Carolina. The children of Thomas Slate Cavender and Elizabeth Mott Cavender were:

Charles Cavender born May 22, 1855, and who later became a Quaker and an attorney in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania and moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1872 and practiced law there. According to Wescotts "History of Philadelphia", pages 368-564, a Rev. Charles Cavender was a pastor of St. George's Church in Philadelphia at one time;

Henry Cavender born January 29, 1849, and died in September 1863;

Fannie Cavender ("Frances Cavender"? & "Fanny Cavender"?) born May 25, 1846, and married Thomas C. Parrish ("Thomas Parrish"); and,

Mary Cavender ("Mary A. Cavender"?) born December 13, 1857;79, 252 & 278and,

WILLIAM CAVENDER;294 & 355 and,

MARY CAVENDER who married a Cannon (“Connor”? & "Conner"?) in Dorchester County, Maryland (and thus became “Mary Cannon”);

(VII) PATRICK CAVINDIRE? ("Patrick Cavender" & “Patrick Cavanagh”?) who married Mary Potee (“Mary Patee”?) at Saint George's Street in Saint John's Parish, Baltimore County, Maryland on January 5, 1769. He could be the same Patrick Cavanagh who was a Catholic schoolmaster in York County, Pennsylvania which later became Baltimore County, Maryland. If Patrick Cavender had married when he became 21 years of age, then he would have been born about 1748. (NOTE: As Dorset Cavender, believed by some to have been the father of the above Patrick Cavindire, died about 1739, then it is extremely unlikely that the above Patrick Cavindire could have been his son, as he would have been born after his father died.); 262, 263, 272, 273, 279, 286, 302, 313 & 455 and,

(VII) EZEKIEL CAVENDER who married Nancy (sometimes "Ann"?) and who lived in Dorchester County, Maryland at least by December 12, 1764, the date on which an Ezekiel Cavenor ("Ezekiel Cavender") and John True were named the sureties to the bond of Catherine King who was the executrix of the Thomas King estate in Dorchester County, Maryland.

On March 14, 1768, an Ezekiel Cavender was living rent free for a term of one year on the land of James Brown, a planter in Dorchester County, Maryland.271 & 302 On June 10, 1771, Ezekiel Cavender was listed as one of the many debtors of the estate of Dr. Reimour Land of Dorchester County, Maryland.392

On October 20, 1779, an Ezekiel Cavender purchased from Robert Stephens and his wife, Jannet Stephens, 73 acres of land known as "New Port" or "Newport" on the east side of the Northwest fork of Nanticoke River in Dorchester County, Maryland. On the same day, Ezekiel Cavender and his wife, Nancy Cavender, sold to Robert Stephens 85 acres of land in Dorchester County, Maryland, known as "Ezekiel's Fortune" which was located on the east side of the Northwest fork of the Nanticoke River in Dorchester County, Maryland.

On September 18, 1780, Ezekiel Cavender and Ann Cavender (sometimes "Nancy Cavender" or possibly his second wife) sold to William Paddison 73 acres of land in Dorchester County, Maryland, known as "Newport" which was located on the east side of the Northwest fork of the Nanticoke River and which he has previously purchased from Robertson Stevens and Jannet Stephens on October, 20, 1779.286 & 352

On September 18, 1780, Ezekiel Cavender and Ann Cavender (sometimes "Nancy Cavender") sold to William Paddison 73 acres of land in Dorchester County, Maryland, known as "Newport" which was located on the east side of the Northwest fork of the Nanticoke River and which he has previously purchased from Robertson Stevens and Jannet Stephens on October, 20, 1779.

In 1789, Ezekiel Cavender sold 107 acres ("Ezekiel's Fortune") to Robert Stevens in Dorchester County, Maryland. It is believed that by this point in time, he was approximately 60 years of age. 286, 302 , 313, 336 & 352

(NOTE: There is some possibility that the above Ezekiel Cavender is the same person whose line is separately listed in the index. Additionally, there was apparently another person likewise named Ezekiel Cavender who is believed to have immigrated from England, first settled in Maryland around the same time that the above Ezekiel Cavender was also living there, but who later moved to Westmoreland County, Virginia about 1770, and still later moved to North Carolina and then into Indian Territory in Georgia where he died.296)

CHARLES SAMUEL CAVENDER #1 line (1765-1842)

This particular Charles Samuel Cavender (“Charles S. Cavender”, “C.S. Cavender” & “Charles Cavender”) was born about 1750 in Cork City, Ireland, married Deborah Davis about in that portion of Lake Champlain which lies between Ferrisberg Township in Addison County, Vermont and Clinton County, New York, died June 9, 1833 in Cannelton, Perry County, Indiana, and is believed to have been buried in the Tell City/Cannelton, Perry County. Indiana vicinity. Deborah Davis was born about 1771 in New York, New York, was the daughter of Daniel Davis and Mary Nin, and died about 1835 in Troy Township, Perry County, Indiana.388, 403 & acbgram@altel.net

It is to be noted that there are some who say that his name is not really Charles Samuel Cavender on the basis of a statement attributed to his grandson who was very young when his grandfather died and who wrote a letter saying that his name was either Samuel, William or Charles and went on to say: “What difference does it make what his name was?”

The foregoing conclusion that the above Charles Cavender was the one who married Deborah Davis is the fact that a Charles Cavender was living on the West bank of Lake Champlain in Wellsburgh Township, Clinton County, New York when the 1790 census was taken, and was listed as then being 16 years old, or over. Another report states that this Charles Cavender was listed in the 1790 census as then living in Ferrisburg, Addison County, Vermont and was then being over 21 years of age with no dependents.388 According to the 1800 census, a Charles Cavender was still living in Ferrisburg, Addison County, Vermont and was the only Cavender listed as then living in Vermont. At that time he was 26-45 years of age and had 1 son and 2 daughters under 10 years of age. Supposedly, he was living somewhere in New York around 1810, the same year he was listed in the census of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. The close proximity of Clinton County, New York to Ferrisburg, Vermont strongly suggests that this particular Charles Cavender was the one who married Deborah Davis as he was the only Charles Cavender in or near both New York and Vermont in 1790. According to an 1861 obituary notice for his son, James Cavender, the Cavender family went to Perry County, Indiana in 1818, and according to the 1820 census report for Clark County, Indiana, his family was then living in Clark County, Indiana, and as early as 1824 they had purchased land in Perry County, Indiana.

It believed by some that Charles Samuel Cavender decended from an ordained minister also named Charles Cavender who sailed from England to Baltimore, Maryland about 1705. It has been stated that all the Cavenders were either Protestants, Whigs or Republicans and maybe "Scotch-Yankees" and were said to be the leading pioneer families of the White River Settlement in Indiana.

Deborah Davis was born about 1771 in New York, was the daughter of Daniel Davis and a Mary, both of Suffolk County, New York area, and Deborah died about 1835 in Perry County, Indiana. Daniel Davis fought in the Revolutionary War, died about 1826 at the age of 92, and his wife Mary Davis died about 1830 at the age of 93. According to the "Boston Transcript" issue dated February 27, 1927, the Daniel Davis family moved from Setanket, Brookhaven Township, Suffolk County, New York to Ferrisberg, Vermont around 1786 where he made his first purchase of land about the same year and had the following children: William Davis born about 1759 who married a Mercy; Zophar Davis born about 1769 who married Lois Porter, later moved to Erie County, Pennsylvania, and died about 1782 in Brookhaven, New York, the year his will was probated; Deborah Davis who married the above Charles Cavender; and, Mary Davis who married Robert Satterly.

The foregoing is considered significant because the given name "Zophar", "Zoper" and "Zophar" in the above Davis family later appeared as one of the given names of later members of the Indiana Cavender family after the Charles Cavender, Jr. family subsequently moved to Indiana.
