I am looking for the parents of John McCarty born 2 May 1823 in Crawford or Dubois County Indiana. John McCarty married Lucy Grant 28 May 1846 in Crawford Co Indiana. John and Lucy moved after 1880 to Ripley County, Missouri. John McCarty was in Co. I, 49th Reg. Indiana Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War. Their children were:
Andrew Melton McCarty 1847-1924
Levi S McCarty 1851-1905
Idelia A. McCarty 1853
William Harold McCarty 1858-1915 (my gg grandfather)
Joseph Oliver McCarty 1867-1910
Sarah E McCarty 1871-1920.
Adam Smith McCarty and Isabel Wilson were in the right place at the right time and had a son the right age to have been John's parents. Anyone have any other informaton about them? Thanks-
