The 1860 Census lists David Carrier as living with the family. His age is 59. It is likely that he is William C. Carrier's father. I found William C. Carrier age 24 in the 1850 Census for Buck Twp., Luzerne County, PA. Living with him are John C. Carrier, age 21 and two other young men with names that are difficult to read. One is another Carrier and the other is "Sarned" E. Miller, age 17, birthplace New York. I'm guessing that "Sarned" is Rowena's brother. The Census indicates that William C was married within the year. In the 1840 Census, a David Carrier was listed in Dennison Twp., Luzerne County, PA. There are two boys and one girl listed. I'm curious to know what information you have regarding the family in Allegan County in 1880. I'm trying to connect Jacob Shugars to Mary V. Carrier and am having trouble locating the Shugars family.
