Descendants of Berryman Carder (1800-) and John Carder (1798-) of Virginia and Indiana
Berryman Carder was born about 1800 in Virginia.
He first appears on the census of Johnson County, Indiana in 1830.
He is shown in the 1840 census of Johnson County as Benjamin Carder.
He is also listed in the 1850 and 1860 census records of Pleasant
Township, Johnson County, Indiana. He was a farmer. According to “A
Historical Sketch of Johnson County, Indiana”, published in 1881, Berryman
Carder was one of several families who came to Johnson County from
Kentucky. It is likely that he is from one of the Carder
families who migrated from Culpeper County, Virginia to Oldham
County, Kentucky around 1820, which included Burkett Carder, John
Carder, and Franklin Carder. He is too old to be a son of Burkett Carder,
but it is possible that one of the other Carders in the group was his
father. Berryman’s wife Margaret was born in
John Carder (born about 1798) also appeared in Indiana prior to 1836 in Marion County, which borders Johnson County to the north. The 1850 census states that John was born in Virginia. John’s wife was born in Kentucky. John Carder married Eliza Sorter in Johnson County on 8 February 1836. He could be a brother to Berryman Carder John is listed in the 1880 census of Hendricks County (immediately to the west of Marion County), living in the household of his son James Carder. In the 1880 census his birthplace is listed as Kentucky. I think that Virginia is more likely to be correct. Here is the family of John Carder, based on the 1850 census of Pike Township, Marion County, Indiana as follows:
J6 Family of John Carder (1798-after 1880) and Eliza Sorter Carder (1811-before 1880)
· 1 Polly Carder (1836-), born in Indiana.
· 2 Margaret Carder (1838-), born in Indiana.
· 3 Rachel Carder (1841-), born in Indiana.
· +4 James Carder (1841-), born in Indiana, married Mollie ______ (1853-).
· 5 Alma Carder (1848-), born in Indiana.
J6-4 Family of John Carder’s son James Carder (1841-) and Mollie Carder (1853-)
· 1 Harry Carder (1874-), born in Indiana
· 2 Dallas Carder (1876-), born in Indiana
· 3 Jessie F. Carder (January 1879-), born in Indiana. She was a boarder in the household of William H. Jenkins in the 1900 census of Center Twp., Marion County, Indiana.
In the 1900 census of Perry Twp, Marion County, Indiana, Edith P. Carder (July 1882-) is listed in the household of Andrew and Alice Snider as his stepdaughter. She is possibly a descendant of John Carder listed above.
Also listed on the Johnson County records is Mary Ann Carder, who married George Surface on 12 January 1836. The only George Surface in Johnson County at that time was an older man who came from Virginia during 1827-1832 with his sons, none of whom were named George. In the 1830 census there was an older woman (born 1770-1780) living in Berryman Carder’s household. It is possible that this Mary Ann Carder was Berryman’s widowed mother who married another elderly man, George Surface.
In the 1850 census, Berryman’s wife is listed as Margaret, but in 1860 she is listed as Martha.
