 John Bowman Carden (Nancy Alvira Gibson), 1860 - 1915

Notes: *Some sources say W. B. Carden was born in Cocke County, TN; however, the 1860 Census for Cowee, Macon Co
NC, indicates Georgia. In 1850, a Carden family resided in Murray County, GA (about 50 miles SW of Murphy, NC): Louisa 44,
Catharine 19, Martha 17, William 16, Anonymous 14, Thomas 12, Russel 9, and Andrew 8. Louisa listed place of birth as NC,
but all children listed TN. In 1860, they were in Whitfield, GA (50 mi SW of Atlanta): William was 24; Thomas was not present;
and there was a new daughter Darcus, age 9. Might this be the same William Carden, possibly counted in two places in
1860?
