I am researching Isaac and Mary Carter who lived in Conecuh Co, AL from about 1815-1845. Isaac Carter is listed in the 1815 Petition of the Citizens from the Eastern Part of the Mississippi Territory and the 1820, 1830, and 1840 census.
He purchased federal land with "E. Parsons" in Conecuh County on 4-8-1825 in Township 6-N, Range 9-E. He also purchased federal land on 8-9-1837 in the same township and range. This property was located in Conecuh and Monroe Counties. I think it was located near the town of Belleville.
An old slave deed that was transcribed by his great grand daughter was witnessed by a J.R. Hawthorn and a J.M. Hawthorn. It was dated 2 April 1845 and "recorded in office of County Court of Conecuh County in Book C folio 3 of Deeds page 299...John D. Cary, M." (magistrate?). The J.P. was J. Niel Lee. (I think this may have been misread and could be Ithiel Lee, but I don't know if he was a J.P.). In the deed, Mary Carter gives her daughter, Sarah Sansom (wife of John L. Sansom) some slaves..."Jack, aged about thirty five years and Lewis, aged about two years". She also gave her son, Clarke Carter, money to purchase headstones.
It is not known what happened to the original copy of this deed after the death of his great grand daughter.
Isaac Carter died around 1845. I do not know where he was buried. Another daughter, Elizabeth (Betsey) married Robert Johnson around 1837.
Isaac Carter may have been related to Jesse Carter, who lived in the vicinity of Burnt Corn.
Any information on these people will be greatly appreciated!
