      Giles Carter of Turkey Island (1635-1701); to Theodrick Carter, Sr. (First) and Elizabeth Webb of Turkey Island, Henrico Co; to Theodrick Carter II and Anne Waddill; to Richard "Died Young" Carter and Susannah Bigger; to Lemuel Carter (b. 1781 in Halifax Co VA, d July 7, 1861 in Caswell Co, NC) and Martha "Patsy" Powell of Halifax Co, VA.


      At this point, our ancestral lines divide and follow two different sons of Lemuel and Patsy. Yours goes through William George "Buck" Carter of Halifax Co, VA and mine extends from Richard Carter (b abt. 1803, d abt. 1861 in Halifax Co, VA) and Catherine Brandon (b abt. 1800, d August 22, 1842) of Halifax Co, VA. Richard and Catherine were married on July 15, 1822 in Halifax Co, VA.


      From Richard and Catherine, my line then goes to Thomas Oscar ("Tom") Carter (b bef 1831 d?) of Halifax Co, VA who married Sally "Callie" Carter (1853-August 8, 1887) of Albemarle Co, VA on December 11, 1871. Sally/Callie is buried at Crossroads Baptist Church in Turbeville, Halifax Co, VA and we visited her grave last summer. Tom and Callie are my paternal great-great grandparents.


      Then on to their son, Walter Raleigh Carter (b April 17, 1874 - d November 29, 1970) and wife Lottie Sylvia Carter (b August 26, 1881, d July 18, 1937) who were married on January 17, 1898 in Milton, Caswell Co, NC.

      Their firstborn child was my grandfather, Henry Eugene Carter, Sr. (b Dec. 24, 1898 and d Jan. 1, 1986) who married my grandmother, Martha Sue Overton (b Dec. 23, 1896 and d Jul. 2, 1988) on Dec. 17, 1921. I am the daughter of their firstborn child, a son, Henry E. Carter, Jr. (b Dec. 23, 1922 and d. Oct. 21, 1991) who married my mother, Mary Astor Motley (b Feb. 3, 1924 and d. Dec. 25, 2005) on Aug. 30, 1947.
      NOTE: Both my grandparents and my parents lived in Pittsylvania Co, VA and I was born in Chatham.
