    1. [CADY] Descendants of Orrin Cady
    2. Carter Rogers
    3. I am looking for information about descendants of Orrin Cady, b. March 2 1794, Stafford, CT, d. April 9 1871 Binghamton, Broome, NY.  I think that his son Nelson, b.17 Feb 1825 in Guifford, Chenango, NY could be my G Grandfather or a close relative.  The story of my "brick wall" follows: My grandfather Rogers arrived in Richmond, Ray, Missouri, USA about 1892. He said his name was Albert Henry Rogers, born on Jan 20, 1860 in New Jersey. This matches 1900 and later census records , except the 1940 census says that he was born in Wisconsin. According to my father and his siblings, he said very little about his family. However, he did say that his father was Nelson Rogers, a sea captain, and his mother was named Anna. He said his father died in a sea accident., that he inherited a settlement after he turned 21, and spent the money, ending up in Missouri. My aunt, a cousin, and I have looked high and low for Albert and Nelson Rogers, and have never been able to find any credible mention of them in any census record or other record anywhere. It is as if they never lived.My Family Tree DNA Y test shows that my closest male line is Cady with five Cadys at the top of my list at marker 67. The Genetic distances are 1, 2, 3, 3, and 4. The only Rogers listed in my results is at the 12 marker, no Rogers after that. The top two Cadys have not responded to my requests to correspond. The 3s and 4s are probably too distant so I have not tried to contact them.In order to search for ancestors of my grandfather and grandmother Rogers, a cousin who descended from my grandfather and grandmother Rogers and I looked for shared matches to both of us using Ancestry DNA where we both had taken autosomal DNA tests. I quickly found a DNA 2nd cousin once removed who had a Cady ancestor named Nelson married to a Hannah Rogers. The DNA cousin provided me with some information on this Cady and Rogers family. The 1860 Wisconsin census shows that Nelson and Hannah had a son, born in Wisconsin in January 1860. He was named Clarence Arthur Cady. The 1870 census shows this family in New Jersey. The 1880 census shows Arthur Cady in New York with his family. However, later census records are sketchy about Clarence/Arthur, although the Descendants of Nicholas Cady Genealogy book says that Arthur married and had two children, but no names or locations are given. Nelson Cady was a blacksmith, not a sea captain. Could the family have misunderstood Hannah as Anna? There are obvious differences in what my family understood that my Grandfather Rogers said. But there are amazing coincidences such as the Y and the autosomal DNA tests, the Wisconsin and New Jersey connections, the January 1860 births of Albert and Arthur/Clarence which inspire me to investigate this possible path to an answer of my "brick wall." Are there actual records that give Clarence's birth date in January 1860? I recently posted a question to members of the Roots Web in Cumberland County New Jersey if there might be school records that have an actual date of birth.So I am wondering if anyone in the Cady might have information on Clarence Arthur Cady or any of Nelson Cady's line which has the following ancestors back to Nicholas Cady: Orrin, 1794-1871; Reubin, 1753-1806; Timothy, 1716-1762; Daniel, 1682-1744; James, 1655-1690; Nicholas. Orrin had a second son who was named George. Descendants of George might be close enough to be cousins in a autosomal match. So while I'm certainly interested in Nelson and his son Clarence/Arthur, I would appreciate corresponding with anyone who might help me solve this mystery. Sincerely, Arthur Carter Rogers

    3. Hello I’m sorry I only know what’s in my family tree.i don’t have an Orrin Cady. My Cady line is stalled at my great great grandfather Benjamin Johnson Cady. No one can prove who his father is, although many a worthy person has tried. Have you been in touch with James Cafy? He seems to know a lot about the Cady’s. Good luck, sounds like you might be dealing with an adoption type situation?
