STEPHEN CANTRELL CAVENDER (“Stephen C. Cavender”, "S.C. Cavender", “Stephen Cantrall Cavender”? & “Stephen Cantral Cavender”?) born in Williamson County, Tennessee on March 4, 1836, first married Helena Kirk (“Helenah Kirk”) on November 13, 1857 in Maury County, Tennessee and had 8 children, later married Leona Estes (Lucy Neomy Estes”? & “Lucy Estes”?) after 1874 and had 9 additional children, moved his famly to Dallas County, Texas in 1886, and died in Cedar Hill, Dallas County, Texas. Helena Kirk was born on October 9, 1836 in Hickman County, Tennessee, was the oldest child of Hugh Cain Kirk (“Hugh A. Kirk”? & "Hugh Kirk") and Nancy P. Plummer (“Nancy Plummer”) of Tennessee. Hugh Kirk was born on August 25, 1811 in North Carolina, and died on November 7, 1873 near Hampshire, Maury County, Tennessee. Nancy Plummer was born about 1813 in North Carolina, married on September 9, 1834 in Lewis, Tennessee and died on March 15, 1857. Lucy Estes was born about 1856, and died on June 28, 1890.

According to the 1860 census, the Stephen Cavender was then living in Maury County, Tennessee, and he was the listed as being S.C. Cavinder age 24 and thus born about 1836 (actually March 4, 1836), his wife was then listed as H. Cavinder (“H. Cavender”, “Helen Cavender”, “Hellena Cavender” & “Helend Cavender”) age 23 and thus born about 1837 (actually October 9, 1936), and their children then living in their household comprised only a daughter named N.F. Cavinder (“N.F. Cavender”) age 1 and thus born about 1859. Also living in the same household were W.A. Ashmore a male age 21 and thus born about 1839. Stephen Cavender was one of the first to enlist in the Confederate services in the First Regiment of Calvary (“Mounted Gunmen Dyer’s Tennessee Volunteers. under the command of Colonel Bitfull.132 Apparently a William Cavender also served in the same unit.

On March 29, 1875, a so-called “Deed of Trust” was recorded in Lewis County, Tennessee by A.J. Noles signed by S.C. Cavender in consideration of the sum of one dollar and for 4 yearling mules and one yoke of oxen (one black and one white) together with a note to Almand Barns as security for Jacob Cox on a note of $135 credited with about $32 and due on December 25, 1874. If S.C. Cavender should pay the said note before December 1, 1875, then the deed of trust is valid. But, if not, then A.J. Noles can give a 10 day public notice and sell the said animals to the highest bidder to pay off the debt by S.C. Cavender to A.J. Noles.

On March 29, 1875, S.C. Cavender and his wife Helena Cavender (“Hellena Cavender”) sold to James Sirass? a parcel of land comprising 612 acres located in Lewis County, Tennessee for the sum of $1,500. On the same day, they sold to John Sims 204 acres on the waters of the Big Swan Creek for the sum of $754.50.

In 1886, S. C. Cavender moved to Cedar Hill, Dallas County, Texas and he and his wife eventually had 8 children.

Of possible significance is that a Hugh Cain Kirk (“Hugh Kirk”) born on August 25, 1811 in York County, South Carolina, first married Nancy P. Plummer (“Nancy Plummer”) on September 9, 1834, next married in November 1857 the widow of William Bryum (“William Byrum”) who was named Mary A. Bryum (“Mary Byrum”), and he died about 1873. Nancy Plummer was born about 1813 in North Carolina, and died about 1857. Mary Noles, who married William Bryum (“William Byrum), was born about 1824 in Tennessee, and died on February 2, 1868 in Maury County, Tennessee. Hugh Kirk and Nancy Kirk had the following10 children:

(1) Helenah Kirk (“Helena Kirk”) born on October 9, 1836 in Hickman County, Tennessee, and who married the above Stephen C. Cavender (“Stephen Cantrell Cavender”, “S.C. Cavender” & “Stephen Cavender)on November 13, 1857 in Maury County, Tennessee and who was born on March 4, 1836;

(2) Alemeda Kirk born on April 6, 1838, and died on April 23, 1904;

(7) Whig Kirk born on June 29, 1848 and died on January 31, 1921;

(9) Octavia L. Kirk (“Octavia Kirk”) born on June 4, 1854, and married James C. Jordan (“James Jordan”). James Jordan and Octavia Jordan had a son named Dick Jordan (“Richard Jordan”); and,

(10) Nancy Lavonia Kirk (“Nancy Kirk”) born on December 1, 1856, and married John L. Grimes (“John Grimes”). This is the same John Grimes with whose family Buck Cavender and Mollie Cavender (“Molly Cavender”) were then living when the 1880 census was taken.

As above stated, the first Nancy Kirk died about 1857 and Hugh Kirk next married Mary A. Noles (“Mary Noles”, formerly “Mary Bryum” or “Mary Byrum”). Mary Noles was apparently the widow of “William A. Byrum” or “William Bryum”) in November 1857 She was born as Mary Noles about 1824 in Tennessee, and died on February 2, 1868 in Maury County, Tennessee. While Mary Noles was married to William Byrum (“William Bryum”), they apparently had 4 children:

Either the same, or another, Stephen Cavender married Matilda Majors (“Malinda Majors”?) about 1845 shortly after the death of her husband, Samuel Majors, who had died sometime between 1840 and 1845 in Maury County, Tennessee, which was a part of Williamson County, Tennessee prior to 1807 and is now located in Lewis County, Tennessee. Matilda had married Samuel Majors on February 11, 1839 in Maury County, Tennessee and who apparently became a rather large land owner, having be granted a rather large land grant in 1820. It is to be noted that Lewis County, Tennessee was formed from parts of the counties of Maury County, Tennessee, Hickman County, Tennessee, Wayne County, Tennessee, and Lawrence County, Tennessee in 1843. The particular section given to Lewis County, Tennessee by Maury County, Tennessee was returned to Maury County, Tennessee in 1852.
