More About Cavender Brummett

(Source); Cavender Brumit is the oldest ancestor of the Brummetts who settled in Wise County. His parents have not been proven. A Thomas and a William Brumit lived in Carter County at the same time Cavender was there, and proof exists they were from Greenville County, South Carolina. However, two trips were made to Greenville by the compiler and no connection could be made to Cavender. Some researchers believe he may have been a younger brother of Thomas and William. Cavender married Elizabeth Dean on November 8, 1828 in the Thomas Gillis home, Carter County, Tennessee. They had three known children who were born in Carter County: George Washington (1833), Alexander (1837) and Mary Emiline (1840).

Subsequently, Cavender moved to Scott County, Virginia. Proof of this move is the 1850 Scott County Census reporting the family residing there and the birthplace of the children as Tennessee. The three children married in Scott County. Cavender next appears in the 1860 Wise County Census. He is shown owning a small farm in the 1860 Wise County Agriculture Census. Wise County Deed Book #1, page 313, records on February 26, 1866, Cavender purchased from Wilbern Phipps for $100, 112 acres located South of the Mountain, north of Pound River on Bear Pen Creek. The 1860 Census records Cavender being born in 1803 in South Carolina and Elizabeth being born in Virginia in 1802. There is no record of either of them in the 1870 Census, so it is assumed Elizabeth died after 1860 and Cavender died after February 26, 1866. One researcher believes they both are buried in unmarked graves in the Hopson Cemetery, Skeetrock, Dickenson County, Virginia, which is the family cemetery of their daughter, Mary Emiline Brumit, who married Littleton W. Hopson.
