      Carter Brothers Saw Action in the American Revolution by Jane Wade
      While alive, Wendell Grogan, one of the founding members of the Genealogical Society of Rockingham and Stokes Counties, was always ready to help other researchers. Now, his collection of genealogical research is housed at the Madison Library's Research Room, and is still helping researchers. On a recent trip to the research room, I found the following materials on brothers Henry and William Carter of Albemarle County, Virginia (brothers to my ancestor Susannah Carter, wife to Daniel Payne). Henry moved to Stokes County, NC , while William moved to Patrick County, VA. These siblings are the offspring of Bernard/ Barnett Carter who married Elizabeth Tureman, daughter of Ignatius Tureman of Berkeley Parish, Spotsylvania County, VA (Will recorded 2 March 1784, Will Book E: 572). I found the accounts of their service in the American Revolution and the family facts found in their pension applications extremely interesting. Abstracts of their pension files were included in John Frederick Dorman's Virginia Revolutionary Pension Applications: Vol. 16. A copy of Sarah Carter's widow's pension application follows this article. Copies of the above came from the Wendell Grogan Collection.

Carter is Henry Fauntleroy Carter 1785-1830; however, the yDNA evidence contradicts this suggested connection because the yDNA of the Robert 'King' Carter line is known to serious researchers of that line.
