15881Re: Meredith Carter Jr? b. 1836 Alabama
- Feb 2, 2013Try checking when the census was enumerated...maybe they were traveling, or had land in both places.
I noticed that quite a few family files had info wrong, so may have confused the many Merideth/Meredith/Melody Carters.

> I found these records on Ancestry a while back and stopped working on the Carters for a while, I found them so confusing. In this census Prudence is listed as mother of Meridith, and is divorced. I don't know enough of Carter history to understand how this group fits together. Prudence must be the daughter of Barney and Mary Jacks Carter, but I'm not so sure that this Meredith is son of Meredith and Martha Elizabeth. I also didn't know that Prudence and Jesse were divorced. Do you think Jesse's age was right on the 1850 census? He would have been quite a few years younger than Prudence, if so.
