In re Benjamin Franklin Cavender
CAVENDER, Benjamin Franklin Co. B, 1TN Cav. (Carter's)
Born 1839 in TN, son of Henry Cavender. Farmer in Ooltewah. [1860 HC Census]
(Henry Cavender by his first wife did have a son named Benjamin S. Cavender, b. ca. 1806 in NC, living in Hamilton in 1850, but d. March 14, 1858, in Dade Co., MO. By his 2nd wife, Henry Cavender had a son named Franklin, b. ca. 1839 in Hamilton Co., TN. However, Henry Cavender relocated with several of his married and unmarried children after the 1860 census, but prior to the War, to Pitman, Randolph Co., AR. In service with nephews in Company A of the 12th Missouri Infantry is Henry's son Francis Marion Cavender, and an F.N.C. Cavender, who I assume may be Henry's son Franklin. I cannot say for certain since there are no enlistment dates on this post, but this Benjamin Cavender may be the son of Henry's son, Thomas Cavender, who remained in Hamilton Co. Thomas' son, Benjamin J. Cavender, was b. ca. 1844 in Hamilton Co. (relocating after the War to Jeffersonville, IN). I would be interested in hearing how the authors pegged this solder as Benjamin Franklin Cavender, as Civil War soldiers database only lists him as Benjamin. I regret I cannot say anything more definitive than to cast some doubts.)
