Re: OKLAHOMA CARTERS
So far, I haven't found anything new for sure on my CARTER family. I have found that Calvin GILES wife was a cousin to my GGG Grandfather, Jesse CARTER. I also found mention of a marriage record in June 20, 1845 McMinn Co,TN of a Calvin GILES to Ellender CARTER. I found them in 1860 census Gentry Co,Township # 62, MO: Calvin Giles, Ellen (wife) & children. This is where Jesse moved to after his wife Lavinia died. Then also in 1870 & 1880 census Eldorado, Saline Co,ILL. This is where Jesse & 2nd wife Elizabeth (Betsy Ann CARTER),including Jesse & Lavinia's son John, moved to after 1860 census. Also I found out that Jesse had a sister that married a Houston GILES.
Do any of these names sound familiar to you?
Have you found your John McKinley Carter in the census under his full name?
