Re: carters washington county maine
I have recently come into the Carter line in my research; My wife's grandfather was adoped, and we only recently discovered his biological parents, which is a MOTZ line.That line goes back several generations to HENRY MOTZ, who married NANCY ANNA CARTER, in Dennysville, about 1815.I believe that Nancy's parents were JAMES CARTER and DEBORAH NEWELL. Based on some of the posts in this series, that the JAMES CARTER and DEBORAH NEWELL are the same.I can provide the following on NANCY's marraige to HENRY MOTZ:
HENRY MOTZ, b. bef. 1784, prob. in Germany, m. abt. 1815 in Dennysville (but I can find no record in the Dennysville Records) NANCY ANNA CARTER, b. abt. 1792.Henry died 1 June 1822 in East Machias.Nancy then married EBENEZER BELBARB ANTHONY (which is listed in this thread).
Henry and Nancy had 4 children:
HENRY J. MOTZ, b. 1 April 1816 in Dennysville;
JAMES C. MOTZ, b. 7 March 1818 in Dennysville;
EDWARD MOTZ, b. abt. 1820 in Dennysville;
ELIZABETH MOTZ, b. 1 June 1822 in Dennysville.
Any information on JAMES and DEBORAH would be most appreciated, especially going back before JAMES and before DEBORAH.
