This information is based on the early records.
Many dates and relationships are questionable and are educated guesses based on the
information that is available. Where the date or relationship is not actually
known, the word PROBABLY or POSSIBLY is used. I am
just attempting to make educated assumptions based on the records, and nothing using
the words PROBABLY or POSSIBLY should be used as factual
information. These are only probabilities or possibilities, but cannot be proven.
John Carder, probably born before
1650, came to Virginia about 1670 or before. He is
on a list of tithables for Lancaster County, Virginia in 1670.
James Carder, probably born
1655 or before, came to Virginia in 1674. He was a passenger with
Mr. Richard Whitehead, who came to Virginia in 1674 and
purchased 2000 acres of land in Rappahannock and New Kent Counties.
Uriah Carder, probably
born before 1685, married Sarah _____. They had at least two children, Anne,
born 5 May 1705, and Sara, born in 1706. These
two daughters were baptized at Christ Church in Middlesex County, Virginia.
probably born about 1705-1710. He lived in the great fork of the Rappahannock
River. He was engaged in keeping the church at St. Markís Parish
clean in 1731. In 1734 he bought 100 acres of
land from Augustine Smith. He sold this land in 1773. It is likely
that he is the same John Carder who died about
1783 and left a widow named Mary and a son George.
Ann Carder, born 1705, daughter of Uriah and Sarah Carder.
Sara Carder, born 1707, daughter of Uriah and Sarah Carder.
John Carder, Jr, probably born 1730
- 1740. The only mention of him is as a witness to the
will of Roger Oxford of Culpeper County in 1759. He may be
the John Carder who bought land in Hampshire County in
1767 and was living in Greene County, Tennessee by 1789. He may also
be the same John Carder with whom Frances Carder set
up her son John Carder as an apprentice millwright in 1785.
William Carder, probably born 1730-1740. He moved to
Hampshire County, West Virginia before 1777. He was probably the
first of the Carders to leave Culpeper County and migrate westward.
- Uriah Carder, probably born about 1730-1740. This
is based on the fact that a Uriah Carder was paid in 1763 by the estate
of Susanna Cole. This is probably not the same Uriah Carder born 1685 or
before, because he would have been about 80 years old in 1763. This is
probably the same Uriah Carder listed in the 1782 and later tax
lists of Culpeper County and who died in Harrison County, W.Va. in 1820.
- George Carder, probably born about 1745-1750. He
was probably a son of John and Mary Carder. He bought 424 acres of
land in Hampshire County, W.Va in 1801 and died there in 1831. It is
possible that he did not make a permanent residence in Hampshire County
until about 1804, because his first wife Elizabeth still lived in
Culpeper in 1802 and there were still three adult males in the George
Carder household in 1803, but only two in 1804. He married a lady named
Mary Ann, also known as Anna before 1810. This is probably the Anne
Hume who married a George Carder in Culpeper County in 1806. He had sons
George, Jr. John, and William.
James Carder, probably born 1740-1755, listed as a purchaser
of the estate of Henry Thredkill in Culpeper County in 1775.
Sanford Carder (1760-1845), son of William and Sarah Carder. His descendants are traced in
this book. He left Hampshire County about 1790 and lived
in Kentucky for a few years, then in Fayette County, Ohio.
William Carder (1762-1839), son of William
and Sarah Carder. His descendants are traced in this book.
He lived most of his adult life in Harrison County, W.Va.
Abbott Carder (about 1770 -
about 1845), son of William and Sarah Carder. His descendants
are traced in this book. He lived in Hampshire County, W.Va.
George Carder son of William and Sarah Carder. This is probably the
George Carder who appears in the Ohio records about 1805.
If so, he was born about 1777 and died about 1849.
John Carder, born about 1767, died about 1850, married Mary "Molly" Shingleton. He
bought land in Hampshire County, West Virginia in 1801 from George Carder,
who was probably a close relative. He moved to Harrison County, W. Va.
about 1807, where he died in 1850. His descendants are traced in
this book. This is possibly the John Carder, son of
John and Frances Carder, who was an apprentice millwright to another John Carder
from 1783 to 1788. James Carder, born about 1766-1770, lived
in Culpeper County, Va. His descendants are traced in this book.
- Martha "Patty" Carder,
sister of John Carder (1767-1850), born in Culpeper County. She
had two sons by Frederick Duncan, and then married William Bennett in
1792 in Culpeper County. She moved to Harrison County (now Taylor
County, WV) and died there in 1850.
Uriah Carder, probably born about
1750-1760, lived in Culpeper County until about 1811. He appears
on the 1810 census, but does not appear on any tax lists from
1811 forward. He died in Harrison County, W.Va. in 1820.
His heirs were Milly, Mary, Susannah, William S., Fanny, and Lucy.
Other fifth or sixth generation Carders
listed in the early records:
William Carder, born about 1772, son of George Carder of
Culpeper and Hampshire Counties, bought land in Hampshire County in 1816.
George Carder, Jr (1776-1828), son of George Carder of Culpeper
and Hampshire Counties. He moved to Hampshire County, WV about 1806.
Benjamin Carder, born about
1775-1780, appeared in the Culpeper County tax lists from 1798 to 1811. He
married Polly Carder in 1796. This is possibly the Benjamin
Carder who was in the Missouri census of 1840 and 1850.
Jacob Carder, born about 1776, he appeared in
the Culpeper County records from 1799 to 1804. He apparently moved to
Harrison County, W.Va. by 1811, and he had 100 acres there in 1817
and was still there in 1828. In 1850, he is listed in
the Wood County, W.Va. census, a retired farmer, age 74,
with his wife Sarah and grandson Joseph. He is listed in the 1860
census of Harrison County, W.Va, age 85, living with George
Lawson Carder (1827-1912), a grandson of James Carder (born about 1766-1770).
Lawrence Carder, born about 1786, listed in the
Culpeper County tax lists of 1803 and 1804. He moved
to Harrison County, W.Va. about 1805 and married Jenny Wiseman there in 1806.
He is listed in the land records of Harrison County
in 1817, 1818, and 1819. Jacob and Burgess Carder lived nearby.
Armstead Carder, born
about 1770-1775, near the Culpeper County Courthouse. He moved to Pendleton District, South Carolina,
before 1803, when his son George was born there. He moved about
1816 to Wayne County, Indiana. He died in Clarke County, Indiana in 1839.
There were also other Carder families living in Pendleton District, S.C. about
the same time that Armstead Carder was there. Although these
other families have not been traced back to Culpeper County, Virginia, they probably
all came to South Carolina from Virginia, since they lived
near each other and their names appear on some documents together.
born about 1784, married Nancy Hawkins in 1805 in Culpeper County. He is
listed in the 1810 census of Madison County, Va. He is listed
in the 1820 census of Jefferson County, Kentucky. A John
Carder is also listed in the 1820 census of Jefferson County, Kentucky. He
is listed in the 1830 census of Brownville Township, Oldham
County, Kentucky. Living near him were John Carder and Franklin Carder.
- French Carder, son of Martha "Patty" Carder and
Frederick Duncan, lived in Hampshire County in 1810, born about 1787 in
Culpeper County. He moved about 1810 to the part of Harrison County, WV,
that became Taylor County and died there in 1816. He was a
schoolteacher. His brother Burgess Carderís name was listed on his
Burgess Carder, son of Martha "Patty" Carder and
Frederick Duncan, owned land in Harrison Co, WV, near Lawrence
and Jacob Carder in 1819. He moved to Ohio about 1820.
Elizabeth Carder (1767-1821), married Thomas Rand (1746-1825), Rev. War Veteran of Virginia.
Her family moved to Indiana in the early 1800s and is well
documented. She is probably very closely related to George Carder
of Culpeper and Hampshire Counties, and Mary Carder of Culpeper County, because Thomas
Rand was a witness to a 1785 deed in which
Mary Carder deeded some personal property to her son George Carder.
It appears from the records that most of the Carder families began to
move away from Culpeper County in the early 1800s. Most
of them went to Hampshire and Harrison Counties in West Virginia.
