The only J Carter Pullen I know of is James Carter Pullen, born 1807 in Bedford Co VA. His father Archibald Pullen was best friends with James Carter, and married James's sister Mary Polly Carter. Archibald named one of his sons after his buddy James, and James named one of his sons Archibald Pullen Carter after his friend. The two friends and their families moved to TN from VA about 1810. James Carter Pullen has a brother William Pullen, born 1813 in Dickson Co TN. Could that be the William you are talking about? Hope this helps.
