In Response To: [NC] CARTERs of Warren Co, NC ()
My grandfather, George Carter, married to Betty Hockaday Carter was the son of one of the Henry Carter's and mother's maiden name Snow found on U.S.Census? His siblings were: Sallie Bet Carter Mushaw, William Carter, John Carter, Elizabeth Carter Jackson, Creesey Carter Montgomery,Emma Carter,and Oscar Carter. Henry Carter's 2nd wife was Altie Mushaw Carter. Mushaw's moved from Ohio to communities bordering VA/NC state lines near Black Ridge & South Hill, Va. NC towns were Wise, Warrenton, Vaughan, Macon & Littleton. Would appreciate any information regarding these family lines. George Carter described his mother,Snow,as full blood Native American possibly of Powhatan, Cherokee, or other tribal affiliation. Her two long braids were crossed upon her chest upon funeral preparation.
