I'm looking for more information about 2 James Carters of Knox Co OH, ca 1830-1850.
On the 1850 Fed. census of Brown Twp, Knox Co OH:
James D Carter43farmer 1500VA (marked illiterate) Charlotte49MD Joshua17labourerOH(marked att. school) Caroline15"" Sarah E11"" James4"
I can't find them on the 1860 index, altho there are some similar names in other OH counties (incl nearby Licking, I think).
The 1840 Fed. census of Brown Twp, Knox Co OH has on p 345 James Carter 11011 1112001 (M: oldest is 30-40, and F: 40-50) Some of the 1840 list is missing in 1850.
The 1830 Fed. census of Knox Co OH has 2 James Carters: Liberty TWP James Carter Esq 0000101 12001 (M: 40-50; F: 20-30) Brown TWP James D Carter 01101 12101 (M: 20-30; F: 20-30)
Both James Carter's are in Knox Co tax lists from 1830-1837. It appears that the Liberty TWP James Carter is not in the 1838 tax list; or he may be represented by a nearly illegible listing next to James Carter of Brown TWP (the name appears to be *am** Carter) in 1838.Before 1835 James Carter of Liberty TWP is joined by a John Carter, who is adjacent to him in the tax list & whose land appears to be next to his, too.
Who are they?Where are they from?Where did they go? Anyone recognizing or researching these folks, please get in touch.Thanks, ==mwh
