John Carty was my 4th great grandfather.The first mention of him is in North Carolina.In 1807 I found a land grant in Green River, Cumberland County, KY and the next census record was in 1810, also in Cumberland County, KY.I am looking for his wife and also where he was before North Carolina.It seems like I read somewhere that some of the New England Cartys moved south to North Carolina.I have never been able to get beyond Surry County. Any clues will be greatly appreciated.
