He later enlisted at Red Lyon Hundred in New Castle County, Delaware under Captain William Rankins and served 3 months in 1778 guarding the shores of Delaware from Fort Penn to New Castle, a distance of 12 miles.

He marched along the lines between Maryland and Pennsylvania to New Brunswick, New Jersey where his Captain and half of his company, including Captain Crow died from "camp fever". He was in the hospital with camp fever and was there when he was discharged. In 1777, he also served as a wagoner, furnishing his own team, under issuing Commissary Churchburg of North Carolina. He may be the same John Cavender that was listed as owing Court Costs in Cecil County, Maryland in 1771317 and the same one who took the so-called “Oath of Fidelity” in Cecil County, Maryland in 1778. 313 & 336 Altogether, he served in the Delaware, Maryland and North Carolina Lines, after which he and his wife moved from Delaware to Maryland to Pennsylvania and then to Crosby Township, Hamilton County, Ohio in about 1818 where lived until he died there on September 12, 1837 at the age of 78 years.
