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

William M. Carder (1808 - ), married Eley (Alice Boyd?), who was born
in Tennessee. In the Franklin County marriage records, a William M.
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 later moved to Whitley
County, Indiana, about 1848, where he was listed in the 1850 census as
- 2 Joshua Carder (1 June 1810 - 1 March
1861), married Lucinda Hickman (19 January 1814 - 25 April 1888). He
was born at Westerville, near Columbus, Ohio. He died at Carderís
Siding, eleven miles east of Winona, Kosiusco County, Indiana. He was
a lumberman, and went from Ohio to Indiana about 1846-47, where he
settled in Kosiusco County and built a mill at Carderís Siding. 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.

he operated a mill for five years at the South Woods, ten miles southwest
