I am searching for info on several people. Thornton Carter was born in 1815 in Virginia. His parents may have come from the West Indies or ??. I do not know who his wife was. He had a daughter named Mariah. I do not know where she was born, and I'm estimating that she was born in the 1830s. She married a Gaines, likely from Ireland. Mariah and her husband had a son named Robert Mack Gaines in 1853 in Alabama. Robert died in Minden, Lousiana on 7-7-1926.
I do have more info on Robert and descendants for anyone interested.
