Do not find a will for a male Carter in Amherst before 1850 with a wife or these children. There is a later will for a joint will for Lucy C. And Mary E. Carter and thanks niece Lucy M. Higgenbotham for taking care of her for last 18 years.Will dated8 Oct 1904 and probated 8 Dec 1919. Rev Bailey Fulton Davis abstract of will is confusing as to when women died.
