This past year I have discovered my grandfather was John Fairfield Carter and am researching his lineage. I have traced his roots back to John F Carter born in either Knox, or Belfast, Maine and am currently looking for any information on his parents John and Sarah Carter. John P and
Sarah resided in Waldo in the 1850 Federal Census (listed as Corter) and in Knox in the 1860 Federal Census. John and Sarah had at least four children (three sons Almond, John, and Chas (Charles) and one daughter Sarah). According to the census data John was born abt 1800 with Sarah born abt 1803, both in Maine. John maybe the son of Edward and Ruth
(Dyer) Carter or the son of John Carter (Edward and Esther (Powers) son).
