Peggy,I do not believe Edward Carter who married NancyAnn Wright7 May 1799 Amherst Co., VA. are not the parents of Elizabeth Carter who married Thomas Layne24 Nov 1807 in Amherst. Do you have a record stating who her parents were ? On Griffin Carter who married Mary Hudson and who died in Caroline Co., VA @. 1818I suspect his ancestry is- he was s/o John And Sarah Carter John s/o Griffin Carter b @1654-after 1717 deed of gift,and Susannah Tussly /Tuffly.Griffin s/o JohnCarter and Elizabeth Hull. My source records of Caroline, Essex, and Old Rappahannock counties in Virginia. I will post again later with deeds proving this Carter line Griffin had a brother Owen Carter who married Sarah Noel, d/0 Bernard.
