I'm trying to find information about this couple, married c. May 14, 1812, Bristol, ME (ref. Johnston's "Bristol Marriages" and Family Search Record Search "Maine Marriages"); specifically, who are Nancy Carter's parents? I have an old pedigree saying that her parents were John Carter and Betsey Richards (d. of Erastus Richards and Betty Doty Sherman), but I haven't been able to document this connection.

I do not have any additional information for you, but I am looking for the same thing. I have an old pedigree from my grandfathers diary saying that Mary Jane (Fossett) Carter parents are John Carter and Betsey Richards, but I cannot find a document to make the connection, so that would be your Nancy's sister. I did find a death certificate for Mary Jane stating her father was John Carter, but the death certificate lists her mother as Betsey Murphy, something strange there. I will let you know if I run into anything however.
