Greetings! I am decended from Thomas Jefferson Cardin, who was George Washington Cardin's brother. Their parents were James J Cardin b. Dec 15, 1807 SC d. Oct 14, 1888 Monroe Co, TN and Mary (polly) ______. Buried Eleazer Cemetry, Mt Vernon, TN.
Their four children were: Larkin Falls Cardin (1839- ?)m. julia Richerson; Geo. Washington Cardin (1840-1905)m. Mary Ervin; Jane Cardin (1845-?); Thomas Jefferson Cardin (1851-?)m. Florence Lucinda Crofts. I have a Marion Herman Cardin son of James Onley Cardin. Is your husband James David Cardin?
James J. Carden was son of Larkin Cardin b. 1782 VA d. 1866 Monroe Co, TN m. Elizabeth (Betsy) Sentell b. March 1, 1787, dau of Samuel Nancy Stephens Sentell of SC. Samuel Sentell was verteran of Rev. War. Larkin and Eliz. married 1806 in Salisbury Distric in SC. Had 11 children.
I found all this in a book titled "The History of Monroe County, Tenn" There is a section on the Larkin Cardin Family and descendents.Larkin was one of the first settlers of Monroe Co.
All the above info was researched by Mrs. John Lee Swabe (Linda Gale Cardin, dau of Hubert Lee Cardin), must give credit where it is due.
Hope this helps!
