The distribution of the slaves of David CarterÕs estate by the Amelia Court in 1807 recognized only 2 legatees, Thomas Carter and Elizabeth Carter Smith.Since there was no will it is most unlikely that there were other children of David Carter unless they died childless before the distribution.
The first census of 1790 contained:
1782 Cumberland Co.David Carter with 6 white and 2 black 1784 Cumberland Co.David Carter with 7 white
Based on dates of birth the household in 1782 was likely to include:
David Carter Jane Flippen Walton Carter William Scott Walton Mary "Polly" Walton Jesse Walton Josiah Walton
and the additional white in 1784 was likely to be Thomas Carter, born between the last half of 1782 and the middle go 1784.
The Scott middle name seems to be associated with Jane Flippen.
