Hi Deb
What part of Missouri? I had relatives who lived in the Carthage &Sarcoxie area. They were Carrs who had originally been known as Kerrs when in Ireland. They came from County Down. Maybe there is a connection?
My grgrgrandfather was Robert Kerr from County Down, born in 1841. Perhaps he and Thomas were somehow related? Uncle or Cousin? Robert's parents were Arthur and Sarah.

Marcia, My Thomas was born about 1811. They came to Iowa and then on to Green city, Sullivan County Mo. They are buried at Hawkeye cemetery there. I have never heard them being called Carr but, It could be true. I have no idea who any of his siblings were. We did the dna but so far no relatives from Kerr. I don't think any of his siblings came over with them because noone has ever found any relatives in the area. If you do find a connection I would love to know about it. Thanks Deb

I don't know any of the brothers but, if you find a connection I would be glad to hear about it. The Kerr(Carr)name seems to be really common in Down. let me know if you find a connection Deb

My Thomas must have lived in Scotland at one time because his wife came from Edinburgh and they were married there. I hope this is the same one. You can contact me at brogers@swnebr.net
