Carter appears as a widower on p. 487D of the 1880 census of Nances District in Muscogee County.With him is his unmarried daughter Mary NEWSOM, age 35.Carter must have remarried, as he was survived by a wife.Carter NEWSOM m. 08 OCT 1878 in Muscogee Co, GA, to Mary TARVIN (LDS IGI NA).Don’t know what her kinship would be to Thomas TARVIN who married Carter’s daughter Nancy – also not clear if this is the same Carter or some other kin.
