      Thomas Carter of 'Greenrock'
      Birth: Mar. 8, 1777
      Death: Oct. 26, 1852, St. Charles County
      Missouri

      Bio provided by Kitty (#49069727)
      Thomas Carter and Nancy Hutchings were married in 1806. Nancy was the daughter of Moses Hutchings and Lucy Parks (who were married 13 Dec 1780 in Pittsylvania Co., VA). After Nancy died, Thomas moved to St. Charles, MO, with all of his children except James and Stokeley. Thomas died in St. Charles, MO. His will was recorded in Pittsylvania Co., VA, on 20 Nov 1854 (Will Book 2, p. 181).

      NOTES ON WILL OF THOMAS CARTER 1852 And MOSES HUTCHINGS 1835 This Thomas Carter's will was written in Missouri. After his wife Nancy Hutchings died, he moved west when most of his children did. Nancy died prior to the writing of her father's will on Jan 13, 1835. In his will, Moses Hutchings states that he has already given to his 'Daughter Nancy Carter wife of Thomas Carter in her lifetime one Negro girl named Amey together with various other property which she had in possession long previous to her death. It is also my will and desire that at my death the children of the said Nancy Carter or their legal representatives shall have an equal share of the property of which I may die possessed of, to be equally divided between them which I give to them and their heirs forever.' Later, in Item 10, he refers to his deceased daughter Nancy Carter 'at my death and before there is any division of the property of which I may die possessed of, there shall be raised by my Executors out of the said property the sum of six hundred dollars and paid to my surviving Daughter Polly Walton and to the children of my Deceased Daughters Nancy Carter and Peggy Tompkins as follows to wit, to the said Polly Walton the sum of Two hundred dollars and to the Children of the said Nancy Carter the sum of Two hundred dollars and the three children of the said Peggy Tompkins the sum of Two hundred dollars which said sum of Two hundred dollars I give and bequeath to my said daughter Polly Walton and the heirs of her body to be equally divided between them, and the sum of two hundred dollars I give and bequeath to the children of my two deceased Daughters to wit, Nancy Carter and Peggy Tompkins respectively to be equally divided between them, to them and their heirs forever? An interesting note for descendants of Stokeley Carter is that Nancy Hutchings had a brother Stokely Hutchings as mentioned in the will of Moses Hutchings. Carters Leaving Pittsylvania County Of the children of this Thomas Carter, James and Stokeley Carter stayed in Pittsylvania County. Note in the will that they are authorized to sell their father?s land in Virginia and divide it among all the children. The will also states that his daughter Lucy has died, and he mentions his daughter Winnefred Hubbard. In Miller?s book, he names the children, from oldest to youngest: James, Lucy, Samuel, Winifred, Stokeley, William, Patsy, and Margaret. Miller has more information on James and Stokeley than he does on the others. He implies that all of the others moved to Missouri with their father. He has that Lucy married a Mr. Hubbard, and than Winifred did also. I'm guessing it is the same Mr. Hubbard since we know Lucy pre-deceased her father, and had children. The executor of Thomas Carter's will, Milton L Lovell was married to his daughter Margaret Carter. He was her 2nd husband, she having previously married a Mr. McGregor. Milton Lovell was a judge in Missouri. Son William Carter had a daughter who married someone from Missouri, so I am thinking he went there with his father
