Thomas Cavender / Thompson Cavender are they the same person? I believe they are the same person. However Owen Co Indiana doesn't have birth records before 1880. Suggestions on locating records not within the County would be much appreciated. I have Census records 1870 and 1880 under Thompson. I have a marriage license in 1887 and census from 1900 and 1910 under Thomas. His death records and headstone are Thomas. He is my Great Grandfather. Maybe if his father had a will? Looking for direction here :) Thanks !!
