Gideon Carr's mother- Chiles or Winston?
Gideon Carr 1711/12- 1783...son of William Carr and ?.
a Miss Chiles, daughter of John Chiles appears the most likely candidate but some have asserted Gideon's mother was
a Catherine Winston. If it is true(haven't seen the source)that Gideon W. Carr is listed among those in Albemarle County in 1742 who took the oath
appointed to be taken by attorney's to prevent lawyers from exacting exorbitant fees, then his middle initial W. would seem to cast a doubt on his Chiles maternal ancestry.
Can anyone who believes Gideon mother was a Winston tell me
their source(s) for that information? Thanks.
