Re: free ancestors of Richard Pryor in Ilinois 1860

William A Carter's parents were Ann Louisa Carter Stewart and Harrison Carter. It looks like Ann Louis, born in Alabama, was previously married to Harrison Carter, born in Illinois. And they lived in Gallatin County, Illinois. When Ann Louisa was widowed, she remarried Richard Stewart, born in Tennessee. They lived in Macon County. It looks like William A. Carter was raised by his stepfather, the Tennessee-born Richard Stewart. Ann Louisa also went by Elizabeth. Interesting.

In the 1850 Gallatin County census, Ann and Harrison Carter, and William A. Carter age 2, were living next door to a Daniel and Betsy Harrington. It's likely Daniel and Betsy were Ann's parents.
