    1. [S101] Connie Spring.
      Callie (3rd child) b. 1853 married Thomas O. Carter on December 11, 1871 in Caswell County. His parents- Richard Carter & Catherine Carter. Her parent Mother "Sally". (no father's name). I am guessing of course, but I suspect that she eloped with him since she was 17/18 and he was 44/45. They moved around a lot. In the 1880 census, Thomas is shown as age 53 and Callie is 28. John 7 was born in TN; James 4 born in Georgia; Robert 1, born in North Carolina and the daughter born later in Kentucky. The daughter Lucy married her first cousin Walter Carter s/o James T. and wife Caroline. In the 1880 census Callie is shown C. L. Carter and in the census (1870) it looks like her name is Caralee or something similar. 1860 census Sally (Callie) age 7; 1870 census Caralee ? age 17, and 1880 census C. L. age 28. The marriage is recorded in Family/Search.

      I am of the opinion that the W. is for Wesley--
      that was his sister-in-law's maiden name . Just a guess on my part.
