In 1820, then living in the same household of John Spinner was his wife who was then about 70 years of age and thus born about 1749-1750, a niece then 28 years of age and thus born about 1791-1792, and a grandson who was then 12 years of age and thus born about 1807-1808. On November 27, 1823, John Spinner listed his age as being 70? years and thus born about 1752-1753, and listed the age of his wife as being 72 years and thus born about 1750-1751.

John Spinner's wife, Mary Skinner, filed an application for pension in December 1846 and while then living in Lincoln County, Tennessee and stated that she was then 89 years of age, that she had married John Spinner in 1780, and that John Spinner died October 3, 1823 in Amelia County, Virginia.

On February 22, 1847, Benjamin Tucker stated in an affidavit: that, he was then about 70 years of age and thus born about 1776-1777; that, he was then a resident of Lincoln County, Tennessee; that, he married a Jane Spinner in 1796 in Amelia County, Virginia; that, his wife, Jane Spinner, was the only daughter and child of John Spinner and his widow; and that his children were:

Polly W. Tucker ("Polly Tucker", "Mary Tucker" & "Mary Jane Tucker") born on August 21, 1798;

Keziah M. Tucker ("Keziah Tucker") born July 21, 180?;

John Tucker born on October 13, 1807;

Martha A. Tucker born on March 16, 1810;

Benjamin Everet Tucker ("Benjamin Tucker" & "Everett Tucker"?) born on April 7, 1815, and,

Elizabeth Ann Tucker ("Elizabeth Tucker") born July 17, 1818.

The granddaughter of Keziah M. Cavender (formerly "Keziah Tucker") executed an affidavit on February 22, 1847 in Lincoln County, Tennessee in which she stated that she was then 42 years of age and that Keziah Cavender was born in Amelia County, Virginia and that Keziah Cavender had married Patrick Cavender.

Of possible significance, a Richard Skinner ("Richard Spinner"?) filed an application for pension No. S6140 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia and stated that he was born in Amelia County, Virginia, that he was then "upwards" of 70 years of age, that he was living in Mecklenburg County, Virginia when had enlisted on October 2, 1832 in Albemarle County, Virginia, and had served in the Virginia Line.401 Of additional possible significance is that, on December 20, 1779, the following Cavender’s enlisted in the Revolutionary War in Muky Town, Amelia County, Virginia on December 20, 1779: John Cavender, age 17, height 5 feet 8 inches, hair dark, and eyes blue; Joseph Cavender, age 19, height 5 feet 7 1/2 inches, hair dark, and eyes blue (who actually had re-enlisted); and, James Cavender, age 22, height 5 feet 8 1/4 inches, hair dark, and eyes hazel. Thus, the above Patrick Cavender could be either the son or grandson of one of the above Revolutionary War soldiers from Amelia County, Virginia.

It is known that the above Joseph Cavender was the son of Hugh Cavender and was born in Amelia County, Virginia.

Apparently Patrick Cavender died at a fairly young age because, in the 1850 census for Marshall County, Tennessee, Keziah Cavender (then spelled "Keziah Cavener") was listed as being 50 years old and was then living in the household of her daughter Mary Ann Cavender (then spelled "Mary Ann Cavener", “Mary A. Cavender”, “M.A. Cavender” & “Mary Jane Cavender”?) who had married Thomas Gold on February 19, 1846 in Marshall County, Tennessee. Based on the fact that Keziah Cavener was 50 years of age when the 1850 census was taken, then she would have been born about 1800.

In the 1860 census for Campbell Township in Greene County, Missouri, Keziah Cavener was living in the household of John H. Robertson ("John Robertson") who is believed to be the father of James Calvin Robertson ("James Robertson") who married Nancy Elizabeth Gold ("Nancy Gold").

In the 1880 census, Kesiah Cavener is listed as "Cisy Cavner", age 73 years, and then living in the household of her grandson, Henry Clay Cavener ("Henry Cavener", “Henry Cavender”? & “H.C. Cavender”) in Republic Township in Greene County, Missouri. If Keziah Cavender was 73 years of age when the 1880 census were taken, then she would have been born about 1806-1807.

As an observation of possible interest, Keziah Cavender signed the above affidavit with an "X", suggesting that she could neither read nor write. However, in her affidavit, she swore under oath that she went to school to a schoolteacher named John Pollard, and that even many years later she could even recognize John Pollard's handwriting, i.e., in 1847, the date on which she signed her own affidavit with an "X". If she really did go to school long enough to recognize handwriting, as she contended, then she should not only know how to sign her own name, or at least how to spell her complete name. However, it appears in some early Virginia schools, the first thing was to learn how to read the Bible. However, it is possbile that she learned her ABC's and how to spell her name, even before she learned how to read and write. As her married name was continually spelled "Cavender" throughout the affidavit, then the correct spelling of her name must be "Keziah Cavender", and not "Keziah Cavener", "Kissiah Cavenor", "Kissiah Cavender", "Cisy Cavener", "Kesiah Cavner", Kessiah Kavenna", "Keziah Cavener" or "Kesiah Cavender" which her name apparently has been variously spelled throughout her life. For example, the signature on the sales contract when she sold the family store was spelled “Kesia Kavenna”.454 In fact, for some unknown reason, some of the children of Patrick Cavender spelled their surname as "Cavender" and some dropped the "d" and spelled their surname as "Cavener".



It is to be noted that some say the Irish spelling of CAVENDER is actually CAVENER because the Irish pronunciation thereof is with a silent “d”.

In any event, Patrick Cavender and Kesiah Cavender had 6 children: (i) JOHN CHARLES CAVENDER ("John Cavender" & “J.C. Cavender”, sometimes spelled "John Cavener", "John Cavner,445 “John Cavinor” & "John Cavenor") born on March 1, 1821454 in Westmoreland County, Virginia. According to the 1880 census for Marshall County, Tennessee, it is recorded that his father was born in Ireland and his mother was born in Virginia. He first married Amanda Alice Swinford ("Amanda J. Swinford"445 & "Amanda Swinford") on March 12, 1847 in Lincoln County, Tennessee with C.R. Darnell performing the ceremony, and later after the death of Amanda Cavender he married Mrs. Rebecca Hill Dyer (formerly "Rebecca Hill") on January 22, 1861 in Lewisburg, Marshall County, Tennessee. Amanda Swinford was born June 25, 1829 or June 25, 1831 in Tennessee, and died in Marshall County, Tennessee sometime between 1859 and 1860. Rebecca Hill was born on June 25, 1829 in Tennessee, died on January 27, 1902 in Tennessee, and is buried in the Head Springs Cemetery in Belfast, Marshall County, Tennessee. According to the 1850 census, a John Cavenor ("John Cavener" & "John Cavender"?) was then living in Marshall County, Tennessee, he was 25 years old, born in Virginia and thus born about 1825 and could neither read nor write. His wife Amanda Cavener ("Amanda Cavender"?) was 19 years old and born in Tennessee about 1831, his first son William Willis Cavender("William Cavener", “W.W. Cavender” & "William Cavender"?) was age 2 and thus born in Tennessee about 1848, and his second son James Patrick Cavender("James Cavener"?, “J.P. Cavender” & "James Cavender"?), who later dropped the "d" in his surname for some unknown reason, was 1 year old and thus born in Tennessee about 1849. Also living in the same household was James Buch age 35 and born in North Carolina and John Ivins 18 and born in Tennessee. Also living in the Thomas Gold household in the same district was Kissiah Cavenor ("Kissiah Cavener", "Kissiah Cavender", "Keziah Cavenor"? & "Keziah Cavender"?) age 50 and born in Virginia. Thomas Gold was 32 and born in Tennessee. James Patrick Cavender later married a Martha E. James Cavender and Martha Cavender had a granddaughter, Geneva Faught who lives near Ozark. Also living in the John Cavener household in 1850 were James Beech 35 and John Ivins 18. According to the 1860 census, a John Cavener ("John Cavender") was living in Christian County, Missouri. He was then 36 years of age and thus born about 1824 and listed as a widower born in Virginia. His son William Cavener ("William Cavender") was 12 years of age and born in Tennessee about 1848. His son James Cavener ("James Cavender") was 10 years of age and born in Tennessee about 1850. His son Joseph M. Cavener ("Joseph Cavender") was 8 years of age and born in Tennessee about 1852. His daughter Mary Cavener ("Mary Cavender") was 5 years of age and born in Tennessee about 1855. His daughter Elen Cavener("Elen Cavender", "Ellen Cavener"? & "Ellen Cavender") was 3 years of age and thus born in Tennessee about 1857. And his daughter Martha Cavener ("Martha Cavender") was l year old and thus born in Missouri about 1859. Apparently Martha Cavender died sometime between 1860 and 1870 as she is not listed in the 1870 census with her parents. Following the death of his first wife, John Cavender married Mrs. Rebecca B. Hill Dyer (formerly "Rebecca Hill") in Lewisburg, Marshall County, Tennessee on January 22, 1861. Rebecca Hill was born June 25, 1829 in Tennessee, was a widow of Robert Dyer who was killed in the Civil war, died January 27, 1902 in Tennessee, and is buried in Head Springs Cemetery in Belfast, Tennessee. In the 1870 census, John Cavenner ("John Cavener" & "John Cavender") was back in Marshall County, Tennessee, was listed as being 47 and born in Tennessee (rather than Virginia) about 1823, his wife Rebecca Cavener ("Rebecca Cavenner" & "Rebecca Cavender") was 42 and born in Tennessee about 1828. All of John Cavender's children listed in the 1870 census were born in Tennessee and they were: Joseph M. Cavenner ("Joseph Cavener", “Joseph M. Cavender”?, “J.M. Cavender”? & "Joseph Cavender") age 17 and thus born about 1853, Mary C. Cavenner ("Mary Cavener", “Mary M. Cavender”?, “M.M. Cavender”? & "Mary Cavender"?) age 15 and thus born about 1855, S. Ellen Cavenner ("Ellen Cavener", “S.E. Cavender”? S. Ellen Cavender”? & "Ellen Cavender") age 13 and thus born about 1858, A.A. Cavenner ("A.A. Cavener" & "A.A. Cavender") age 6 and thus born about 1864 and G.T. Cavenner ("George Thomas Cavener", "G.T. Cavener", “G.T. Cavender”? & "George T. Cavender"?) born about 1866. Also living in the John Cavender household in 1870 were apparently Rebecca Cavender's mother, S.A. Dyer age 62 and born in South Carolina, and three of her daughters M.A. Dyer, T.T. Dyer and S.E. Dyer, all born in Tennessee. John Cavender went to Christian County, Missouri sometime between 1855 and 1858.

However, according to the 1880 census for the 4th Civil District of Marshall County, Tennessee, a Jno. Cavender ("John Cavender"& "Jonathan Cavender") and his family were living there. He is listed as being 59 years of age, born in Virginia about 1821, his father was born in and his mother was born in Virginia. His wife, Rebecca Cavender, was listed as 52 years of age, born in Tennessee about 1828, her mother and father were both born in North Carolina. Their children were listed as a daughter named A.A. Cavender age 17 and who was born in Tennessee about 1863, and a son named Ger. T. Cavender ("G.T. Cavender") age 14 and born in Tennessee about 1866. According to the 1900 census for Hunt County, Texas, John Caventer ("John Cavener" & "John Cavender") was then 79 years old, widowed, and was living with his son Joseph Calvin Caventer ("Joseph Cavener", “Joseph Calvin Cavender”? & "Joseph Cavender"). John C. Cavender died about 1902 in either Joplin, Missouri or Dallas, Dallas County, Texas.
