Interested in information about Richard Carter, born ca. Dec 1860 in Barnwell Co., SC. There are many Carter families in the Barnwell and Bamberg Co., SC areas but I am unable to connect Richard to them. He appears on the 1880 census as a farm laborer living in the household of Isaac and Elizabeth Carter Rentz (she doesn't appear to be old enough to be his mother by an earlier marriage but is probably kin?).
Richard Carter marries Rebecca H. Beard aft 1881 in Barnwell Co., SC and is found later in the 1900-1930 censuses of Richmond Co., GA living in Augusta. Rebecca is the daughter of William Thomas Beard and Elizabeth R. Varn of Barnwell Co., SC.
Any help with Richard Carter's ancestry and other relations is appreciated.
