it’s been awhile since I POSTED. Recently I have been working with another Carter cousin (a descendant of Joseph Carter & Charity Huston) who had supplied another Carter DNA kit.
NOW, Based on some written family notes -
by a grandson of Barnabas Carter that is a grandson of Barnabas’s (thru Barnabas's son Shadrach as the father) and a grandson of Joseph (thru the son of Joseph’s daughter - Nancy Jane Carter as the mother)
that is some family papers show Shadrach married his half brother Joseph’s daughter, i.e. Shadrach’s half niece (confusing enough, SORRY), which states that Joseph was the son of Barnabas (Rev War Vet) by an earlier marriage in VA before the Rev War.
Now, the DNA results say that this Kit suppler is an exact match thru 37 makers. Thus the results show the following:
In comparing Y-DNA 37 marker results, the probability that -- (((the three Kits (for the descendants, i.e. Levi, John & David Carter) and the Kit for (the descendant of Joseph Carter son of Barnabas descendant)))) -- shared a common ancestor within the last...
NOW, I have been in email contact with the Kit suppliers of – Levi Carter (b. abt 1730 NJ); John Carter (b. abt 1723 NJ, d. 1811 TN) – they appear to be 8 generation back from Joseph Kit supplier & David Carter (from East Orange, NJ) – who appears to be 7 generation back from Joseph Kit supplier. Now all of these were listed as exact DNA matches thru 37 markers with Joseph Carter (son of Barnabas Carter, Rev War Vet) kit supplier.
NOW, unfortunately none of the Kit suppliers can get back beyond their Levi, John or David – just that they have data that says they came from NJ.But, this does strongly suggest if not proves that Joseph/Barnabas’s ancestors came from NJ.Joseph Carter’s Kit provider was the GGGG-grandson of Joseph Carter (the son of Barnabas Carter the Rev War Vet).
Now, for those of you who have Ancestry.com there is attached to Levi Carter (b. abt 1730 NJ and died 1811 Greene Co., TN) copies of --The Carters of Greene County, Tennessee by Dr John Denton Carter 1981 Part 1 o& 2 (1981) that can be download to your computer. These provide you withdetails of John Carter and Levi Carter lives from NJ to VA, NC and then TN.
While, they are NOT proven they do provide insight into the time around the Rev War and some Carter’s that share a direct ancestor with Joseph/ Barnabas Carter – back some 9+generations.Ty Goodart
