Norma Cavender;

Dorman Cavender; and,

Lineness Henry Calvin Cavender ("Lineness Cavender", "Henry Cavender", “L.H.C. Cavender”, “L.H. Cavender” & "Windy Cavender"). Lineness Cavender was born March 17, 1906 in Doss, Missouri, and died February 20, 1978. As a boy, he worked in the timber with his father and married Hazel Hodge in March 1927. In the mid 1960's, he bought a farm in Irondale, Missouri but sold it after a short time and moved back to Dent County, Missouri. Lineness Cavender and Hazel Cavender had 2 sons who were left behind when Hazel Cavender died in 1940:

Calvin Cavender who died prior to 1978; and,

Clyde Cavender who died prior to 1978.

Lineness Cavender later married Edith Thomas from Gladden, Missouri, had 2 sons who were still young boys, their mother died. They were:

MARY ANN CAVENDER ("Mary Cavender", “Mary A. Cavender”, “M.A. Cavender” & "Elizabeth Cavender"?) born on November 15, 1846 in Tennessee, married Samuel Duncan ("Sam Duncan") on December 8, 1865 in Dade County, Missouri, and died March 15, 1919 in Greenfield, Dade County, Missouri. In her obituary, the birth date of Mary Cavender is given as November 15, 1842. Samuel Duncan was born about 1836 in Monroe County, Tennessee, was the son of Berry Duncan and Fanny Tummons (“Frances Tummons”, and died September 1, 1918 in Dade County, Missouri.

It is of interest to note that in October 1855, a Samuel Duncan and Mary Duncan were indicted for bigamy; however, both suits were dropped as the circuit attorney was unwilling to prosecute further. Mary Cavender Duncan was born sometime between 1842-1946, she would only have been 9-11 years old at that particular time and, therefore, most probably was not the same Mary Duncan who was mention in the above lawsuit.



Samuel Duncan had 11 children, but Mary Cavender Duncan may have been the second wife of Samuel Duncan and, thus, may not have been the mother of all of them. In any event, the children of Samuel Duncan were:

She subsequently moved to Randolph County, Arizona where she was listed as a widow with a 14 year old daughter;

(It is to be noted that a William Cavender likewise had a son named Zachariah Cavender. According to the 1850 census, William Cavender then age 29 and born in Tennessee about 1821, was living in the 10th District, Williamson County, Tennessee together with his wife Marietta Cavender age 25 and born in Tennessee about 1825, and their children, all born in Tennessee comprised: James T.

According to the 1880 census, a Zacharia L. Cavender (“Zachariah Cavender”?, “Zacharia Cavender” & “Z.L. Cavender”) was then living in Webb, Reynolds County, Missouri and he was listed as being age 33 and born in Tennessee about 1847 and his father was born in Virginia and his mother was born in Tennessee. His wife was Martha C. Cavender (“Martha Caroline Cavender”, “Martha Cavender” & “M.C. Cavender”) age 31 and born in Missouri about 1848-1849. Martha Clark was formerly Martha Caroline Clark (“Martha Clark”) who was the daughter of James Clark born in Missouri and a Miss Watkins also born in Missouri. Zachariah Cavender and Martha Cavender had 7 children:

JAMES B. CAVENDER line (1830-1880)

JAMES B. CAVENDER (“James Cavender” & “J.B. Cavender”) was born about 1830 in North Carolina, and married Mrs. Malaha Julia Reed (“Mahala Reed”, “Malaha Rogers? & “Mahala Rogers”?), formerly Mahala Julia Thompson (“Mahala Thompson” & “Mahala Tompkins”?) of Kentucky. They were married on March 1869 Cairo, Chariton Township, Randolph County, Missouri which is about 6 miles North of Moberly, Missouri. "Mahala" is a fairly common American Indian term for a woman and is also used for a woman's name in the Middle East. The family stories say that James Cavender died about 1882 in Miller County, Missouri, and that he had a son named W.T. Cavender (“William Thomas Cavender” & “William Cavender” who was born about 1862 in Miller County, Missouri by a previous marriage. This apparently was the second marriage for her and the third marriage for him. Mahala Thompson had previously married Jordon Reed in 1854 in Osage County, Missouri and they had a son named Edward Reed.

According to his grandson, Thomas Cavender, his paternal grandparents were James Cavender and Haley Rogers, and that his maternal grandparents were Thomas P.P. Wilson (“Thomas Wilson”) who was born on February 24, 1832 and died on June 14, 1918, and Sarah E. Lepp (“Sarah Lepp”) who was born about 1842 and died on April 23, 1925. That being the case, then Haley Rogers must have been her married name and her maiden name was Haley Wilson. Thus, the following George Valentine Cavender (“George Cavender” & “G.V. Cavender”) must have been the son of James Cavender and Haley Wilson.

In the 1870 census reports, the James Cavender family was listed as still living in Cairo, Chariton Township, Missouri with his third wife Mahala Cavender and his 3 youngest children: William Thomas Cavender (“William Cavender” & “W.T. Cavender”), Mary Joann Cavender (“Mary Cavender” & “M.J. Cavender”) and John Lewis Cavender (“John Cavender” & “J.L. Cavender”). Also living in the same household was Edward Reed who apparently was the son of Mahala Cavender by her previous marriage. In 1860, prior to her marriage to James Cavender, Edward Reed and his mother were living in the household of Moses Thompkins in Webster County, Missouri.

In the 1880 census reports, the James Cavender family was listed as then living in Richwoods Township, Miller County, Missouri with his third wife Mahala Cavender. The reason for assuming that she is his third wife is due to the listing of his 4 children as having mothers who were born in different states that the state where Malaha Thompson was born.

After the death of James Cavender, his widow and a small son and a small daughter moved into a Hotel in Miller County, Missouri, believed to be in Tuscumbia, where she worked as a maid/cook while her children attended school.

In the 1900 census, Malaha Cavender and her son George Valentine Cavender were living in Linn, Osage County, Missouri in the household of Thomas P.P. Wilson (“Thomas P. Wilson” & “Thomas Wilson”) and were listed as being boarders. Apparently, Thomas P.P. Wilson was the former father-in-law of James Cavender because it appears that James Cavender may have previously married his daughter, Hadley Wilson (“Mrs. Hadley Rogers”), who apparently was deceased prior to the marriage of James Cavender to Mahala. Otherwise, they probably would not have been on friendly terms, and also because George Cavender was probably his grandson.



It is believed that James Cavender had 3 children by his previous marriages:

William Thomas Cavender (“William Cavender”) born about 1862 in Missouri;

Mary Joann Cavender (“Mary Cavender”, “Molly Cavender” & “M.J. Cavender”) born on March 11, 1864 in Missouri, married Ezra Sullens on April 16, 1882 in Tuscumbia, Miller County, Missouri, died on January 22, 1948 in Linn, Osage County, Missouri, and is buried in the Linn Public Cemetery in Linn, Osage County, Missouri. Ezra Sullens was born in July 1861 in Linn, Osage County, Missouri, was the son of Alexander Sullens and Martha Ritter, was elected Marshall of Linn, Osage County, Missouri on April 6, 1926, died about 1920 in Linn, Osage County, Missouri, and is buried with his wife. He had previously married a Martha Ritter and they had a son named Lenord Sullens (“Leonard Sullens”?). Ezra Sullens and Mary Cavender Sullens (“Mary Sullens” & “Joann Sullens”) had 5 children:
