Anyone out there working on a Carr family?
I do this every so often. Is anyone out there working
on the Carr family? John Carr primarily, born SC,
about 1800; also, a few other Carrs in the county
during the 1830-1860 period. If you're out there, I'd
like to share research.
There was a Carr family that was in Franklin County,
TN back in the period 1805-1822. I suspect now that
my Carr family was related to that one. If I'm right
about that, then the Carrs were in old Pendleton
District, SC just before leaving for TN and Alabama.
Prior to Pendleton, SC, they were also in the portion
of Wilkes County, GA that eventually became Elbert
County, GA. (Late 1780s) If you trace these Carrs back
far enough, you will find that they came here in 1685
from Scotland with the original name of Ker/Kerr and
landed in Monmouth County, NJ. From there, they
spread into the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, then
into GA and SC.
Also interested in Dent, Taylor, Spence and Edwards
families of Jackson County. Is there anybody out
there with these research interezts--besides the
stalwart Shirley Carter and Rich Edwards?!
