Descendants of George Carder (1777?-1849?) of Virginia and Ohio

George Carder, of Ross County, Ohio, Franklin County, Ohio, and possibly of Whitley County, Indiana, was probably a son of William (d. 1801) and Sarah Carder (d. 1807) of Culpeper County, Va., Hampshire County, W.Va., and Ross County, Ohio. If he is the George Carder who was their son, then he was born about 1777, according to tax lists of Hampshire County (see earlier chapter on William Carder). A George CORDER married Jenny Ross in 1805 in Ross County, Ohio. This is probably the same George Carder who lived in Franklin County by 1809, and had a wife Jane in 1819 in Franklin County, Ohio. Further evidence for a Carder/Ross marriage is shown in the will of John Ross and his wife of Ross County and later Franklin County, who named Joseph and William Carder in their wills. A William Carder and a Joshua Carder (possibly the same person as the above named Joseph?) lived in Franklin County in the 1830s and are about the right age to be sons of George Carder. Joshua Carder is definitely George Carderís son, and it could be speculated that William Carder is also George Carderís son. Both William and Joshua Carder moved to Whitley County, Indiana, in the 1840s and lived next to one another there.

George Carder owned 100 acres on Darby Creek in Franklin County, Ohio. He was taxed on this land from 1809 to 1830. He sold a farm in Franklin County in 1833. In 1819, his wife Jane sued for divorce, but the case was dismissed. Worth M. Tippy (1868-), a descendant of George Carderís son Joshua, wrote in 1950 in his An American Home, being the Life Story of Oren Tippy and Mary Isabel Carder, that Joshua Carderís forebears came to Ohio from Virginia, not far from Staunton. He also said that George Carder, father of Joshua, went overland to California in 1849, after the death of his wife, and was never heard from again.

Carder was married to Alice Boyd on 11 March 1830. He lived in Brown Township, Franklin County, Ohio, in the 1830 census. He and his wife Eley sold 56 acres on the waters of Darby Creek in Franklin County to John Comley for two hundred dollars in 1834.

He was in the Civil War and was with General Sherman at the Atlanta Campaign. According to the marriage records of Franklin County, Ohio, Joshua Carder married Lucinda Ross on 23 December 1831.
