Naham Cady (b 1816 in OH)
Posted by: James Cady (ID *****4689) Date: January 29, 2012 at 13:54:13
  of 2607

1.Naham was born in Ohio in 1816 and is possibly the son of Joseph C Cady Sr or Daniel Cady, his brother. They both died in 1821 in Mill Creek (now Cincinnati), OH.

2. These are possibly siblings or cousins of Naham. Joseph C Cady Jr (b 1794), Benjamin Johnson Cady (b.1797) David Cady (??) and Daniel Cady (1790) Daniel was a neighbor to President elect Harrison. He also lived in Butler County while Joseph Jr was in Warren Co. Joseph Jr later moved to Butler Co.Ohio. There is considerable evidence to tie Joseph, Benjamin and Daniel together. David is listed in Probate records for Joseph Sr but unaccounted for in Census reports in Ohio.

3. Lucinda Cady (born in Connecticut in 1766) Married Joseph C Cady Sr about 1789) I suspect her maiden name was Johnson. She was the wife of JCC Sr and mother to JCC Jr. If she was the mother of Naham she would have been 50 years old. This is why I think Daniel or David are more likely to be his father. David who was mentioned in the probate for Joseph Sr. might have used a different spelling of Cady and moved further west. It is possible David and Daniel are the same person. I only found David under Keady in early records. Daniel Cady was in the area of southwestern Ohio, at least until 1840.

4. Joseph Jr was born in Pennsylvania in 1794. BJC was listed as born in NY in 1797. I believe there was a Joseph Cady (Keady) in Northampton County in 1790 and a Daniel nearby. This area was near Wilkes-Barre which was an area settled by many from Connecticut. There was actually, savage fighting between CT Settlers and PA locals over territorial rights, this was settled by Congress in 1789. I have yet to research this.

5. A Daniel Cady was listed as a soldier in the First Battalion First Establishment from 1775 to 1776 after which I am looking for records of him. If he and his brother moved to Northampton County.PA this might be who I am looking for. He was of the right age.

Morris County, NJ is across the Delaware River from Northampton Co.PA. It is possible he moved from an area subject to Tory raids to a relatively safe area. Of interest there was a connection to settlers from Connecticut, as many settlers came from Canterbury, CT. to an area they called Connecticut Farms (now Union, NJ). Many unrecorded Cadyís settled in the area of Canterbury in the early 1700ís. In the history of Windham County it was reported this Community had only part time ministers and dissatisfaction lead many to leave the state. This is how Cadyís from Connecticut might have reached New Jersey. Many Puritans had started leaving Connecticut in the mid 1700ís, most headed up river to Vermont and New York and my the 1820ís
