      Linda Dannette Carter Kryshtalowych; Trish Taylor, This may or may not be tied to your family. Thomas Carter b 1700 in Lancaster, VA married Sarah Haynie. They had a son, John Carter, who marred ??? Spencer. They had a son, Spencer Carter, b 1750, who had a son, Spencer II. Another son of John and Ms. Spencer was Thomas Preston Carter who married Susannah Gaines and had a son named Thomas Spencer Carter, b in Lancaster, VA and died in KY. Not a line I researched to any great extent but hope it helps with your search.
      Linda Dannette Carter Kryshtalowych: Trish Taylor Since you have an ancestry account, go to the Search option then scroll down to Card Catalog. Then do a search for "The descendants of Capt.
