  • Notes  Married:
    • NOTE: The name Ewell is passed down this line for several generations. It is even misspelled as Yewel in one case. This is further evidence of Frances Walters identity.

      By the way Carter Group R1b-08 is also in the DF27 descent tree, but I believe only one member (#22975) has had a BigY test. This would be the descent sequence for members of that branch: R-P312>ZZ11>DF27>Z195>Z274>Z209>FGC83504>Z295>
      Z270>Z211>Z297>Z278>BY36223

      Carter Group R1b-02 has had a couple of BigY testers, and is on the same side of the DF27 tree as R1b-08 -- downstream of Z295 -- but is not, by a long shot, on the same branch. Those Carter "cousins" diverged around 4,000 years ago, clearly not in Virginia, and probably not on the large island that would become England. And the name Carter wasn't a thing, yet, even as an occupation.

      I am working on Group R1b - 08 with several connections in Halifax and Pittsylvania Counties. If you can add any information I would appreciate it. The connections would be to the brothers Spencer Carter, Thompson Carter or John [Charles] Ewell Carter. Spencer Carter is definitely not of the Thomas Carter of Barford line.
