    • From Clevelamd Gardner's notes: Thomas and Olive Gardner married and settled on the east side of the First Broad River and Magness Creek about 300 yards northeast of the John Harrelson home place and the Ham Williams homestead. This was in the part of Rutherford County that became Cleveland Co. in 1841. The old Lincolnton - Rutherford Stagecoach route ran through his land and crossed First Broad River on his land at a place called Gardner's Ford just below Lawndale. Thomas' youngest son, six grandsons and six great grandsons served in the Civil War. His son, four grandsons and two great grandsons were killed or died from war causes. One great grandson was MIA. There is a family tradition that Thomas may have been a preacher as he was called Elder Gardner. Thomas Gardner and his wife are buried in the Family cemetery on their plantation situated a quarter mile east of the home of the late Ralph Hord.
