Two Carter Lines

Hello Dear Reader,
You may not know that we also have a Carter line on Grandma (Mary Hall) Carter’s side of the family. These Carters are from the South. Extensive research has not been done on this line but there are indications that this family lived in Virginia and may have been somehow connected to George Washington and the ancestors of Robert E. Lee.

I recently picked up a book from the bargain table at BYU Bookstore entitled, The First Emancipator. It is about Robert Carter III of Virginia. I find it very interesting and am trying to figure out how he might fit into our “Southern” Carter line. When I come to some conclusions I’ll let you know.
