In working on the Cardwell family history I came across the following.
Richard Livingston Cardwell, was born around 1826 in Knox County, Tennessee probably on the family estate of Rev. Perrin Cardwell. He married Sarah Elizabeth Liggitt and lived in Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee near her parents after spending the first ten years of their marriage close to Richard’s family in Knox County. They appear to have moved from Knox County to Roane County after the 1860 census. Richard served as an Alderman on the Kingston city council starting on October 15, 1873. His father-in-law, Henry Liggitt, was a prominent businessman and community leader in Kingston and Roane County. Henry was the son of Perrin Liggitt, a soldier in the Revolution, and is buried in Roane County, Tennessee. Henry was born in Smith County, Virginia on January 11, 1795. He moved to Maryville, Blount County, Tennessee around 1812. Where he enlisted on November 13, 1814 as a Sergeant in Captain Alexander Brigg’s Company of Infantry, 5th Regiment East Tennessee Militia. They were under Col. Booth’s command and served until May 10, 1815. (See account of the Battle of New Orleans under Richard Cardwell) In January 1816 he moved to Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee, and the following year he married Elizabeth, the daughter of Milton and Nancy Keener Center. This couple produced six children, Sarah Elizabeth being the fifth. Richard and Sarah Liggitt Cardwell had the following children; Austin L. Cardwell born ca 1850, Elizabeth R. Cardwell born ca 1852, Mary F. Cardwell born ca 1854, Susan A. born ca 1856 and Georginia Cardwell born ca 1859. Georginia married John B. Armstrong in Knox County, Tennessee on October 15, 1890. It appears that Richard may have been widowed before 1880 as he is listed in the household of younger brother, William Perrin Cardwell, in the 1880 Knox County, Tennessee census.
Just wondering if this could be helpful to anyone.
