I am not related to these people, but I have a book with a little information on them."Memories and Records of Eastern North Carolina" by Mary Weeks Lambeth; 1957:
"John Garrett, son of Daniel, who died 1758, married on April 7, 1760, Sarah Carkeet, single woman (marriage bonds Tyrrell Co.).Sarah Carkeet was the daughter of Benjamin Carkeet, esq. to Tyrrell County, who d. about 1751 (see settlement of estate of Benjamin Carkeet, Tyrell county, N.C.

"Mr. Benjamin Karkett was one of the surveyors of the road from Panbies (?) Road near the Beaver dam to Smithwicks Creek, Samuel Spruil one of the Gentlemen Justices (Tyrell Co., Court Minutes, June 3, 1735)."
"Estate of Benjamin Carkeet, Esq.Deed between the widow and release of said deed - his children.(seems to be written on division of estate of James Smith, date ? 1750)."
"Tyrell County Court Minutes - Hall of History, Court on Kendrichs Creek, 1751: Mr. John Daley praying to have the estate of Benjamin Carkeet, Senr. deceased, divided between widow and children."
"John Daley is appointed guardian for Sarah Carkeet, Lydia Carkeet and Mary Carkeet, Mas Mackey and James Cormv' Esq. Sec John Hardeson is appointed Guardian of William Carkeet, est. deceased (?)."
"Justices Edward Smithwick, James Trumbull and Joseph Spruil 'on hearing the petition of Mary Carkeet, widow and Relick of Benjamin Carkeet, esq. late of said county, deceased, praying to have an order to settle the ferryage from her now dwelling house, to Richard Tomlinson's landing in Bertie County, which was then and there, by the justices of the said court accordingly granted and ordered that she receive for every man, 2 shillings, proclamation money and for each single person 1 shilling, like money, for said ferryage."
"Jasper Haridon petitioned to have more hands labor on the road that leads from Mrs. Carkeet's landing to the road that leads to Bathtown (order made out)."
"John Daly issued petition for price of ferryage, granted (evidently the Mrs. Markeet's ferry on the maps as Daly's)."
