You are right: John Howard Cavender, b. 5-15-1855 m. Effie Greenleaf on 12-7-1876, Greys Summit MO. They had son John Howard Jr. b. 12-23-1877 St. Louis, m. Louise Phillippi on 12-26-l901, St. Louis. They had son John Howard III b 12-26-1902, Kansas City Mo, d. 2-1976.
NOW: The father of JH was John Smith Cavender b. 1855, b 1824,d. 2-23-1886, m. Lucinda Rogers on 7-25-1854. Watertown Mass. Father of J Smith Cavender was John Cavender, b. 1796 Greenfield NH, and father of this last John Cavender was Charles Cavender, b. abt. 1750 in Ireland, d. 1783 Greenfield NH. I am descended from Charles & have written a book about his life. I have also written a monograph about John Cavender b. 1796 who was prominent in St. Louis history as was J. Smith C. b. 1855, (a Civil War general & Sen. in MO). If you search on web for St. Louis genealogy, the monograph on John 1796 is there. I understand the Phillippi family was also prominent & was searching for more info. These dates are documented. I have children/dates for these people.
