Martha “Patty” Carder was born in Culpeper County,
Virginia. According to a letters written in 1878-1880 by her great
grandson J.N. Carder, she was a sister of John Carder (1767-1850) of
Culpeper County, VA and Taylor County, WV. According to the same letter,
she had two boys by Frederick Duncan of Culpeper County. It does not
appear that she and Frederick Duncan were ever married. Frederick Duncan
lived next to Geroge Carder near Battle Mountain in the part of Culpeper
County that later became Rappahannock County. George Carder also purchased
land from William and Frederick Duncan in Hampshire County, WV in 1801. On
the same day, George Carder sold 100 acres of this land to Martha’s
brother John Carder. On 15 November 1792 Martha “Patty” Carder married
William Bennett in Culpeper County. This is documented in the Culpeper
County marriage records as well as in the letters written by J.N. Carder.
She died in 1850 at the home of her daughter Sarah Coffman in Taylor
County and is buried at the old place where she lived. Not much other
information is known about her at this time.
Frederick Duncan was born about 1770 and married Susanna
Stallard in 1797 in Culpeper County, Va.

1 Frederick D. Carder
(1816-1896), born at Taylor County, West Virginia. He first appears on
the records of Warren County, Ohio on 4 December 1839, when was married
to Julia Ann Wikoff (4 January 1822 - 2 November 1895) by Richard
Simornton. Julia Ann was born in Warren County, Ohio. She was a daughter
of Garrett P. Wikoff and Phoebe Cox. Frederick B. and Julia Ann Wikoff
Carder are buried outside of Edenton, Clermont County, Ohio, close to
Stonelick Lake. About 1841-1842 Frederick Carder moved to Campbell
County, Kentucky, where he is listed in the 1850 census as a farmer.
Some time after 1850 he moved back to Ohio. It is possible that
Frederick Carder is closely related to Washington Carder (1811-), who
lived in the same area of Ohio. Frederick named one of his sons
Washington Carder. According to Mildred Mooney Fields, her great
grandfather Frederick B. Carder was part Indian and of French Canadian
descent. Her mother told her this.
2 Joseph Carder, possibly the
same Joseph Carder who married Eliza Newell in Warren County, Ohio on 19
March 1846. He had a son J.N. Carder, who was doing research on his
family in 1878-1880, apparently attempting to get some inheritance from
the estate of Frederick Duncan.
