George Carter married (2) Mrs. Mary Calfee, wid. of Wm. Calfee whose will probated 1801, Wythe Co., VA. Wm. & wife Mary had no children. He was a prosperous & prominent man in the Co. having been one of the early trustees of the Co. His will written 8/10/1796, probated 6/9/1801, Wythe Co., VA in which he devised to his wife, "all my negroes & all my horses, mare & colts, & all my cattle & sheep & hogs & still & all my household goods & utensils of every sort ... only excepted "every sort of lant" ... and all my land during her life peaceably to enjoy without interruption and after her decease, I give & bequeath my land to my 2 nephews, Wm. & James Calfee, sons of my brother John Calfee & Sarah, his wife..." This will was witnessed by Henry Davis, Richard Ellis & Evan King. George Carter & his 2nd wife migrated to Cocke Co., TN.
