Your answer to Dan has really interests me. I am also a Carter, researching my Carter family lines. As far back as I can get with documents is to my GG Grand father, Barnett Carter b. 1804, Married Wilhelma [ Willey] Harlow, in Fluvanna, Va, in 1827. I can't seem to find no parents for him or sisters or brothers. Barnett and wife named their 3 sons, Charles B., James Henry, and William Thomas Carter.
Have you came across any of my names in your research? I have been trying to research this family for a long time. I have even had a Carter DNA made and do match a number of Carters, but still can not find out how.
I would very much appreciate, if you could Help me get on the right track.
Your counties are right, your names are right, and your dated are right.
