The 1810 census for Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio lists a Charles Cavinder ("Charles Cavender") as then living there, and, a William Cavender noted that he had moved to Cincinnati, Ohio about 1811 when he was 18 years of age, thus born about 1793, the same year that the below William Cavender, the son of the above Charles Cavender, was born. Thus, the Charles Cavender above apparently lived in Hamilton County, Ohio from about 1811 to about 1817 when the 1817 tax list for Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio lists Charles Cavinder ("Charles Cavender") household as comprising: 1 male (apparently himself) over 21 years of age, 2 males under 12 years of age; 1 male from 12-21 years; 1 female (apparently his wife) over 21 years of age; 1 female under 12 years of age; and 1 female between 12-21 years. It appears that from sometime after the Hamilton County, Ohio 1817 tax rate was taken until about 1823, his family was living in Jeffersonville Township of Clark County, Indiana as the 1820 Jefferson Township, Clark County, Indiana census lists a Charles Cavender as head of a household at that time and that his family then comprised himself and his wife both over 45 years of age, and his children then comprised: 1 male under 10; 1 male 10-15 years; 1 male 15-18 years; 1 male 18-25 years; 1 female under 10; and 2 females 10-25 years of age. His son William Cavender was the only other head of household that was listed in that region. From marriage records of his children, Charles Cavender moved to Troy Township, Perry County, Indiana in either late 1823 or early 1824 and until 1830, and probably until his death in Cannelton, Perry County, Indiana in February 1842.

In these early years of opening settlement, it was almost customary for a new owner to "squat" on Congress land for a goodly period of time with the aim of purchasing it eventually. This possibility is reinforced by the record of the marriage of the eldest Cavender daughter, Frances Cavender, to John L. Thomas ("John Thomas") on June 14, 1824 in Perry County, Indiana, and 3 months later Charles Cavender purchased the 108 acres of land of the LaFayette Spring area.

Charles Cavender's 3 sons, William Cavender, James Cavender and Anson Cavender all became judges in Dubois County, Indiana. Charles Cavender and Deborah Cavender (formerly “Deborah Davis”) had 9 children:



WILLIAM CAVENDER born on August 29, 1793 on the shore of Lake Champlain in Ferrisberg, Addison County, Vermont, lived there until he was 18 years of age when he immigrated to Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio about 1875 and where he bought 40 acres of land from General Zachary Taylor and on which land is presently located the downtown section of Cincinnati, Ohio. William Cavender’s parents and siblings joined him there about 1815-1816, and his 2 elder sisters were married in Jefferson County, Indiana about 1816-1817 and the entire family had relocated there prior to 1820. William Cavender in later years expressed regret for selling the land so cheaply and which had become the downtown area of Cincinnati, Ohio. In late 1823 to early 1824, the Cavender family (less 2 married daughters) again moved farther down the Ohio River and settled in Perry County, Indiana. He later moved to Utica, Indiana where he lived for a few years, and then moved to Cannelton, Perry County, Indiana about October 1833, and still later moved to Dubois County, Indiana. He apparently first married Rosanna Holt ("Rossana Holt"?)on April 23, 1817 in Jeffersonville Township, Clark County, Indiana and who was born about 1805. In the 1820 census records for Clark County, Indiana, William Cavender was then listed as being 26 years of age and thus born about 1794, his wife Rosanna Cavender was listed as then being 15 years of age and thus born about 1805, and he then had an infant son whose identity is unknown and who was born in Clark County, Indiana. William Cavender later married Mary Worrall ("Mary Worrell?) on October 13, 1822 in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Mary Worrall was the daughter of Thomas Worrall. He still later married Mrs. Charity Stretton (formerly Charity Hougland”) on August 9, 1829 in Troy Township, Perry County, Indiana. Either Mary Worrall was born in Jefferson County, Kentucky, or they were married there. Charity Hougland had previously married Mark Stretton in Perry County, Indiana on February 14, 1824. According to a local and undocumented legend, Charity Stretton was then a widow of one of Jean Lafitte's band of pirates. She was born about 1802 and died about 1876. William Cavender later moved to Dubois County, Indiana where he became a Justice of the Peace and a Judge, and died October 23, 1875 in Jasper Township, Dubois County, Indiana. Charity Struton was born January 11, 1804, died on December 14, 1876 in Harbison Township in Dubois County, Indiana at the age of 72 years, 11 months and 3 days, and is buried in the Sherritt Cemetery in Boone Township, Dubois County, Indiana.388 In 1835, William Cavender and family, together with his brother Anson Cavender and family moved to the Northern part of Dubois County, Indiana where he later became an Associate Judge for Dubois County on August 21, 1845 for 7 years until the organization of the court was discontinued by the second Indiana State Constitution. This was under Indiana's first constitution. According to the 1850 census, William Cavender and family were then living in Harbison Township in Dubois County, Indiana and the family then comprised himself as being age 56 and therefore born about 1794 and his wife Charity Cavender was listed as being 49 years of age and born in Tennessee about 1801. Also living in the same household was a John Cavender age 20 and born in Indiana about 1830, and a Margaret Cavender age 18 and also born in Indiana about 1832. In 1860 William Cavender was still living in Harbison Township in Dubois County, Indiana with his wife Charity Cavender who died December 14, 1876 in Harbison Township. In the 1871 census of Harbison Township, Dubois, Indiana, William Cavender was listed as being 77 years of age. Apparently William Cavender died on either October 23, 1875 or on August 23, 1875403 near Portersville in Harbison Township, Dubois County, Indiana at the age of 83, and in his will his heirs were listed as: (i) his wife, Charity Cavender; (ii) his son, (iii) his grandchildren, William W. Cavender ("William Cavender"), Lodosa Cavender, and Rosina J. Cavender ("Rosina Cavender" & "Rowina Cavender") heirs; and, the children of his son. William Cavender and Rosanna Cavender (“Formerly “Rossanna Holt had 1 child:

an unknown infant born before 1820, and died in Clark County, Indiana;

William Cavender and Charity Cavender (“Formely “Charity Houghland”) had 8 children:

(i) JOHN D. CAVENDER (“John Cavender” & “J.D. Cavender”) born either November 17, 1830481 or on August 4, 1838 in Connelton, Perry County, Indiana, first married a Mary Ann Thornton ("Mary Thornton") on either March 31, 1852, or on May 11, 1869403 in Dubois County, Indiana and who was born about 1832 in Tennessee, later married a Polina Breuner ("Pauline Breuner"? & "Polina Brunner"?) on May 11, 1869 in Dubois County, Indiana, 279 was a trustee of Harbinson Township, died either on March 5, 1873481 or on April 22, 1900 in Dubois County, Indiana at the age of 42 years, 3 months and 18 days when killed by a tree he was cutting down fell on him, and is buried in the Sherritt Cemetery in Dubois County, Indiana. Pauline Cavender was born on August 1, 1835 and died on April 22, 1900. Both John Cavender and Pauline Cavender are buried in the Clarinda Cemetery in Nodaway Township, Page County, Iowa.

In 1880, Paulina Cavender ("Pauline Cavender") was listed as being the head of the household, 45 years of age, was born in Indiana, and that she and her family were then living in Mason Township in Taylor County, Iowa. Therefore, she was born in either 1834 or 1835 depending upon whether her date of birth was before or after the date the 1880 census was taken. As J.D. Cavender died in 1875, i.e., prior to 1800 when Pauline Cavender was the named head of the household in Taylor County, Iowa, the two above Pauline Cavenders, apparently being of the same age, must be the same person. Actually, it has been established that they are the same person. This being the case, the children of J.D. Cavender and Pauline Cavender are listed in the 1880 census and are: Hattie Cavender (“Harriett Cavender”?) age 17 and born in Indiana about 1863; Charles Cavender, age 12 and born in Iowa about 1868; Nancy Cavender, age 9 and born in Iowa about 1871; and, Mattie Cavender, age 7 and born in Iowa about 1873. As Mattie Cavender's age was listed a being 7 years old when the 1880 census was taken, she was born in either 1872 or 1873, depending upon whether her birthday was before or after the date the census was taken. A Mattie L. Cavender ("Mattie Cavender" & “M.A. Cavender”), age 25 and thus born about 1855, married Lewis Edward Miller ("Lewis E. Miller" & "Lewis Miller"), age 31, on May 4, 1898 in Page County, Iowa. Therefore, the second mentioned Mattie Cavender was also born in either 1872 or 1873. It has now been established that the two Mattie Cavenders are the same person. Glenn Alton Miller ("Glenn Miller") was born in Clarinda, Page County, Iowa on March 1, 1904 and his mother was Mattie Lou Cavender ("Mattie L. Cavender" & "Mattie Cavender"). It has been further established that Glen Alton Miller, the world famous band leader that was killed in a plane crash, is the son of Lewis Edward Miller and Mattie Lou Cavender Miller, and the grandson of J.D. Cavender and Pauline Cavender. Glen Miller had a brother Elmer D. Miller ("Elmer Miller") who was born April 6, 1901 in Clarinda, Iowa. 282

According to a Descendant Chart from the LDS Library, a John D. Cavender ("John Cavender" & “J.E. Cavender”) was born in Perry County, Indiana, on either August 4, 1838 or about 1830, married Martha Ann Thornton ("Martha Thornton" & "Mary Thorton"?) on March 31, 1852 in Dubois County, Indiana, died January 30, 1875, and is buried in the Clarinda Cemetery in Clarinda, Nodaway Township in Page County, Iowa. Mary or Margaret Thorton was born in Tennessee about 1832-1833.
