    Notes 
    • Cader Phelps/Felts/etc

      There is no found record as to when Cader Phelps was born.
      But he was probably born about 1765 and probably in North Carolina.

      The first found mention of him is on 12 May 1777 when he enlisted in the Continental for 3 years in Shephard's Company from North Carolina. He enlisted the same day as James Phelps of Gates County, North Carolina. Cader (Keeder) became ranked as Music in June 1778, playing the drum. James was ranked as Music in Nov 1779, playing the fife. They probably joined quite young and spent their school years in the American Revolution. Both mustered out after 84 months (7 years) and each with a land warrant of 1000 acres. Cader sold his warrant for
      164 pounds 17 shillings 2 d to James Cobb. It would seem that Cader and James might have been brothers. But the father of James left a detailed will in Gates County, North Carolina that did not include Cader.

      On 12 May 1787, Kedar Phelps married Elizabeth Hines in Gates County, North Carolina.

      Kader and a wife appeared on the 1790 and 1800 censuses in Gates County, North Carolina with no children. In 1800, they are 27-65 years of age. Cader has not been found anywhere on the 1810 census.

      But in May of 1810, he appeared on 3 juries in White County, Tennessee.

      Then on 3 Sep 1811, his daughter Mary Caroline Phelps was born in what is now De Kalb County, Tennessee, and was probably White County, Tennessee at that time. The name of her mother has not been noted.

      Right after, Cader Felts enlisted with the 2nd Regiment of Benton's Tennessee Volunteers. No records have been found of any applications for pensions from his service in the War of 1812 or the American Revolution.

      Then, in Oct 1816, Cader Felts was in court in White County, Tennessee for an affray.

      In 1820, Cady Fells age 45 or older was in the census of White County, Tennessee with 2 boys under 10 years, I boy 10-15 years, another man 45 or older, 1 girl under 10 years, 3 girls 10-15, and a woman 45 or older. Two of the household were engaged in agriculture.

      Finally, in 1830 in White County, Tennessee, Cader Felts at 50-59 was on the 1830 census with 1 boy under 5, 1 male 15-19, 2 girls under 5, 1 girl 5-9, a woman 20-29 years, and another woman at 60-69 years. Cader was probably in the 60-69 category based on his being 45 or older on the 1820 census.

      No further records of Cader Phelps/Felts have been found.
