Looking for connections--Carters and spouses, VA, TN, KY
I would like to share with anyone who has any information on any of the following people:
James Carter, married Elizabeth Vest 1814, Davidson County, TN (James' second marriage)
James was the father of the following Carters:
Narcissa Carter, m. Jesse Fuqua 1818, Davidson County, TN
Nelson H. P. Carter, m. Ann Spivey (?) 1833 Davidson County, TN
John C. Carter, m. Levinio(Levinia?) Myers (Miers, Myres), 1829 Davidson County, TN
James C. Carter, m. Nancy Buchanan 1833, Davidson County, TN
Tabitha P. Carter, m. Ethelbert T. Gray 1833, Dickson County, TN
(The following are children of James and Elizabeth Vest Carter)
Nancy Carter, m. Zachariah Garton 1833, Dickson County, TN
Edwin B. Carter, m. Louvinia Myers (same as above?) 1838, Dickson County (?), TN
Amanda M. (F?) Carter, m. Thomas Jones 1841, Dickson County, TN
Francis M. Carter, m. Narcissa Hannah 1842, Davidson County, TN

Granville S. Carter, m. Martha (Patricia Jane?) Jones 1845, Dickson County, TN
Mary J. Carter, m. John Washington Sullivan 1849, Dickson County, TN (my line)
Emaline Carter, m. Joel Freeman Glass 1855, Graves County, KY
William G. Carter
Andrew J. Carter, m. Mary Anderson 1859, Graves County, KY
George W. Carter, m. Elizabeth (Austin?)
Archibald Pullen Carter, m. Dicey K. Austin in Graves County, KY.
James was from Virginia--Bedford and/or Pittsylvania? He was born October 3, 1776, according to Bible records. Does anyone know how James might be connected to William Merriman Carter's line of Carters? Seems to be a connection, but haven't found it yet.
In Davidson County, TN, in 1810, there was a marriage between Gabriel Vest and Phoebe Carter. Is there a connection to James and/or Elizabeth?
(John) Archibald Pullen married Polly Carter in Bedford County, VA, in 1807. James Carter, Jr., was surety on the marriage bond. Same James? Was Polly the sister of James, above?
I sure would appreciate any responses!
I have a John Carter,Jr. born about 1802, married about 1829 and died Feb. 4,1863. His father was John Carter, who was born about 1765 and married on Feb.26,1789.
The family probably lived in Bedford County, Va.
Any connection to the Merriman Carter line?
Thanks for any information!

Carters Father.Merriman (Merry)Carter was born in Bedford Co. VA Abt.1740-43.

Minnis Carter,b.1838, who is also my great-
grandfather. I do not have anymore names of
children for John Carter. His wife is Sarah
(Sally)Parker Welch. Can you send me your

I am a decendant of Callohill Minnis Carter. Could you please send me any information about this family that you have
Merriman Carter and descendents are all descendents of Capt. Thomas Carter from Lancaster Co., VA, not Robert "King" Carter.
William Merriman Carter b. 1730 Lancaster Co., VA md. Frances Leftwich. He was the son of John Carter and Susannah Payne.
John Carter was the son of Henry Skipwith Carter & Anne Harris.
Henry Skipwith Carter was the son of Thomas Carter & Katherine Dale.
Thomas Carter was the immigrant of the Lancaster Co., VA Carters.
l am currently researching or l should say trying to research the Merriman family tree.
The first Merriman l have come across in Australia coming from Gosberton Lincoln England was John Merriman who was born 13/11/1825 and died 11/12/1911.Married Johanna Casey. They had five children who were Charles, William, Mary Jane. George, Johanna.
John and Johanna married in 1863.
We also have Carter and Stuart in the same family.
l really hope this is some help and some connection.
l have had a lot of trouble tracing relations prior to John and Johanna.
Nice Talking to you
