His son, also named Robert Cavender, was born in 1813 in Miami County, Ohio, and Robert Cavender, Sr.'s father, John Cavender, was born in 1760 in New Castle County, Delaware. 269
(2) GEORGIA: Edward Cavender was living in Greene County, Georgia; a second Edward Cavender was living in Wilkes County, Georgia; and, Thomas Cavender was living in Wilkes County, Georgia. 355
(3) NEW JERSEY: Brien Cavender ("Briant Cavender? & "Bryant Cavender"?) paid taxes in Gloucester Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey.418 He probably was the same Briant Cavender ("Brien Cavender" & "Bryant Cavender") who paid taxes in Gloucester Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey in 1796, and the same Briant Cavender ("Brien Cavender" & "Bryant Cavender") who paid taxes in Gloucester Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey in 1797.418

1794/02/07 On this date, Charles Cavenah ("Charles Cavender"?) of Burke County, Georgia sold to William Horn of Edgecombe County, North Carolina for 25 pounds a tract of 50 acres north of Tar River on Beach Run and adjoining Gray and the said William Horn (where Mary Cavenah or Mary Cavender? lived and died). The Indenture was witnessed by James Merritt, Moses Horn and Britain Smith. It is to be noted that Edward Cavenah ("Edward Cavender"?) was living in Putnam County, Georgia according to the 1820 census and was probably of the same family. Edgecombe Cnty, North Carolina DB 8, p. 82 1794/03/22 Anna Cavender married John Townsend of Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. She was probably the daughter of James Cavender and Catherine Cavender of the same county. 283 & 306 1794/04/21 William Cavender, who may have been the son of Hugh Cavender then deceased, and John Bryant jointly execute a marriage bond in Prince Edward County, Virginia, for 50 pounds payable to the State of Virginia with respect to the pending marriage of William Cavender to Dicey Bryant ("Diana Bryant"), daughter of Jessee Bryant ("Jesse Bryant"?). Surety was John Bryant, and the witnesses were William Cavender and John Porter. Prince Edward County, Virginia was formed out of Amelia County, Virginia in 1754 30, 31, 131, 133, 294, 350 & 393 The name Dicey in the colonial period in Virginia was derived from Diana.

The Indenture was witnessed by James Sammons (probably Betsy's Sammons' brother), Edward Chambers, and Stephen Cavender (probably James Cavender's brother). This document should be sufficient proof that Eudaley James Cavender ("Eudaley Cavender") of Lunenburg County, Virginia, who married Betsy Sammons on March 14, 1793 is the son of Hugh Cavender.142 This probably was either a wedding gift or an anniversary gift as her son James Cavender and Betty Sammons were married on March 14, 1793.393 It is to be noted that it is estimated that Hugh Cavender's son, Stephen Cavender, was born about 1773. Thus, he would have been either 21 years of age, or slightly over 21 years of age, when he witnessed the above legal document.

Charles Cavender, Sr. who apparently immigrated from Ireland via Newfoundland about 1775 at the age of about 19 years. Some say Charles Cavender, Jr. settled in North Lewisburg, Ohio.397 1794/06/09-1794/10/04 As Frances Cavender (wife of Hugh Cavender) had a life estate in the property of her husband under the terms of his last will and testament, then she must have died sometime between June 9, 1794 (when she gave her son James Cavender and his wife Betsy Cavender a surrey and a bay coach horse) and October 4, 1794 (when her oldest son Joseph who was named in his father’s will as the executor of his father’s estate) sold a portion of the estate to William Blake as indicated below.393 1794/08/28 Hezekiah Featherston ("Hezekiah Featherstone"?) and Nancy Tarpley ("Ann Tarpley"), daughter of either James Tarpley or John Tarpley, were married on this date in Charlotte County, Virginia with the surety being Charles Featherston ("Charles Featherstone"?, "Carloss Featherstone", "Carloss Featherston", "Carlos Featherstone"? & "Carlos Featherston"?) with Rev.

The Indenture was witnessed by his brother Eudaley James Cavender ("Eudaley Cavender" & “E.J. Cavender”) and William Thiueatt and recorded on October 6, 1794.32 (See also50)As Frances Cavender, wife of Hugh Cavender, had a life estate in the above property, she must have died sometime between June 9, 1794 when she gave her son James Cavender and his wife Betsy Cavender a surrey and a bay coach horse, and October 4, 1794 when her oldest son Joseph Cavender who was the executor and administrator of Hugh Cavender's estate sold the above property to William Blake.393 It is to be noted that a James Elmore (minister) married Polly Hamlett (widow) on October 13, 1803 in Charlotte County, Virginia.
