I recently found out that my Carter ancestors lived in Coshocton Co., Ohio in the mid-1800's. Interested in any further info on this family. James Carter, born PA or Ohio 1781-1782 married to Lydia ? born PA 1784-1785. Their son Alfred born OH or PA 1826 married Margaret J. Sonals 23 Jun 1847 in Coshocton Co., OH. On 1850 census Alfred & Margaret were living with his parents in Monroe Twp., along with their first son Valentine born 1848. Had several more children in OH before moving to Illinois 1866-1868. Have info on them once they moved there. They also lived in Boone Co., MO. I found a Valentine Sonals born PA on 1830 census in Coshocton Co., so am hoping this may be Margaret Sonal Carter's father.
