Descendants of James Carder (1765?-1836?) of Culpeper/Rappahannock Co, VA

James Carder was born about 1765, probably in Culpeper County, Virginia. His grandson, I.B. McDonald said that James Carder was from Scotland and that the family before that came from Wales. However, James Carder is in Culpeper County by 1787 living with the other Carders who had been there for many years, so I would question the Scotland story. A James Carder appears as a buyer in the estate of Henry Thredkill in 1775, but this is probably too old to be this James Carder. James Carder first appears on the tax lists of Culpeper County in 1787, and is listed as age 16 to 21. He lived in the Daniel Brown tax district, the same place as George Carder and John Carder, whose descendants are traced in this book. Since they lived in the same vicinity, they were probably closely related. Members of both the James Carder family and the George Carder family were shoemakers. Other close relatives who were not his children probably include Jacob Carder, born about 1776 in Culpeper County. Jacob Carder later lived in Harrison County, WV, and Wood County, WV., and later in the household of George Lawson Carder, who was a grandson of James Carder. Could Jacob Carder be a younger brother of James Carder? This connection to Jacob Carder probably also means that the James Carder line is closely connected to the John Carder (1767-1850) line of Culpeper Co., VA and Harrison/Taylor Co., WV, and the George Carder (1750?-1831) line of Culpeper Co, VA, and Hampshire Co, WV.

James Carder lived in the part of Culpeper County that later became Rappahannock County. According to his grandson, I. B. McDonald, he lived near the town of Woodville. James Carder’s name appears on the tax lists until 1836. His son John R. Carder applied for his pension for the War of 1812 and said that he could not locate his discharge papers because he had left them at the home of his father, James, in Culpeper County. According to several sources, John R. Carder, son of James, came from the part of Culpeper County that split off to form Rappahannock County in 1833. Not much else is known about James Carder. He was married at least twice. His second wife’s name was Sarah, based on the death record of his son William.

In 1893, a letter was written by James Carder’s grandson, Isaiah Burritt McDonald. This letter documents the Carder family ancestors as recollected by Mr. McDonald.

Here is a letter written by James Carder’s grandson, I.B. McDonald in 1893:

The McDonald House, I.B. McDonald, Proprietor
Columbia City, Indiana
Sept. 16, 1893

My dear Sir: -
I am just in receipt of your very interesting epistle of a few days ago. When I got your letter the name Carder struck my memory in a very peculiar way, hence my reference to my good and dear mother’s maiden name. Now a little correct history. My grandfather James Carder and his brother Edward O. Carder came from Scotland during the Revolutionary War and settled in what was then the District of Culpeper (Va.). Subsequently when I was about one year old (1829) a part of Culpeper County or District was cut off - a new county was made called Rappahannock County and a small town near Hedgeman’s River called Little Washington was made the county seat.

In Rappahannock County on the Luray and Culpeper Pike is a small village called Woodville. Near this Woodville my grandfather James Carder lived and died.

Edward O. Carder went across the “Blue Ridge” and settled near what is now Mt. Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley. In after years another brother came from Scotland and after remaining in old Virginia a while went to Barbour County and settled somewhere near Philippi. During the war while I was stationed at Huttonsville in the Tygarts Valley I met several of the Upshur County Carders who were direct descendants of my grandfather’s third brother who was much younger than he was. This younger and third brother’s name was John Carder as has been told to me by my people at Woodville.

My oldest uncle, John Carder moved to Harrison County, West Virginia in 1832 or 3 and settled on Kinchelow Creek northwest of Clarksburg where he died during the war or about its close in 1864 or 5. His children, a large family, and their relatives still live in Harrison County. One, a noted physician, lived at Salem and afterwards at a post office called Jane Lew. Of this family I have not heard anything for several years, hence, cannot suggest where they are. During the war I met several of the Upshur County Carders — good people.

My uncle, John Carder, was the oldest of James Carder’s children. Geo. Lawson was next. He lived and died at Luray in Page County when I was a small boy. I met his widow during the war in 1862. He was a brave fellow and had his left leg broken in a fight.

My third uncle was Coleman Carder. He died near Woodville at 97. Then my uncle William Carder died only a few years ago near Woodville age 88. Uncle James Carder died in the same locality about 32 years of age of some pernicious fever. My uncle Joseph Carder in 1834 emigrated to Shelby County, Illinois. He died only a few years ago aged 83.

My mother’s name was Elizabeth Carder, the oldest daughter of my grandfather. She died in 1883 at 80 years.

By the way, while my grandfather James Carder came from Scotland, the stock before going to Scotland came from Wales and settled up in the Highlands of Scotland in Inverness.

I am quite anxious to visit the Carders of Upshur, Harrison, and Taylor counties if possible. I would like very much to see them once more before I pass over the “Deep and Dark River”.

May God bless you and yours,
I am kindly, etc.
Isiah Burritt McDonald
