Re: Dr. Miller book errors - not this time
Yes, Dr. Miller confused a few early genealogies, but not this time.Direct from the Thomas Prayer Book, absolutely no thinking or analysis required, his grandson married Catherine:
"Joseph Carter Ann Pines was married on 23 Decr 1713
[not this Joseph - but his uncle, the Judge]
"Children of Jos Catharine Carter Thomas Carter was born May 8, 1720 Mary Elizth Carter was born Dec 2, 1721 Ewd Dale Carter was born June 2, 1723 John Carter was born June 8, 1725 George Carter was born Dec 18, 1728 Elizabeth Carter was born Sept 20, 1731 Joseph Cater } was born May 3, 1733 Catharine Cater }Robert Carter was born Aug 22, 1735"
Separately, Joseph Carter proves the connection:
"No original paper of Capt. Thomas Carter bearing his own seal has been found (he sealed his will with the Dale crest), but his grandson, Joseph Carter of Spotsylvania, in 1739 used a seal bearing the initials <;T. C." surmounted by a crest showing a demi-talbot out of a mural crown. This is one of the crests of the Kimpson Carters and of Ancell Carter of London".
