I think I mistated the County where I found Henry Carter. I should have
said I found one in Halifax County, NC, born 1844, son of William & Rody
Carter in the 1850 census. But, by 1860, Henry was living with another
family headed by Hawkins Carter. Now, I don't have much on this family but
some of them do show up in one of the families I've researched and here's a
little history about what I know.
HAWKINS CARTER, born 1805 Warren Co. married ELIZABETH WIGGINS, born 1810
Halifax Co. on January 10, 1845 Warren County, NC. He may have been
previously married because there are children born before 1845 in his
household. HAWKINS CARTER may have been a brother of the before mentioned
WILLIAM CARTER because Henry does show up in his household by 1860, while
WILLIAM & RODY CARTER don't show anywhere after 1850. WILLIAM & HAWKINS may
also have been the brothers of PLUMMER CARTER, b. abt 1800 because he was
living with Hawkins in the 1850 census, and both William & Hawkins had sons
named Plummer, as well that Plummer had a son named Hawkins Carter. An EATON
CARTER, b. abt 1795, who married PATSEY TONEY on Dec. 25, 1832 Warren Co.,
was also probably another brother and one of HAWKINS Sr.'s sons was named
EATON CARTER. Another thing about the family is that a SAMUEL GREEN shows
up as bondsman for both HENRY CARTER/PRISCILLA TONEY marriage on Aug.8, 1866
Warren Co., and HAWKINS CARTER (Jr.) /THOMAS ELIZABETH TONEY married May 23,
1866 Warren Co. Now this was probably the same SAMUEL GREEN, b. 1839
Warren Co.,(who was married to probably MARTHA CARTER, b.1849, daughter of
WILLIAM, b.1818- & POLLY CARTER, another family in Warren Co.) who was the
brother of HENRY GREEN, b.1841 Warren Co., who was married to LUVENIA
CARTER, b. abt. 1842, Warren Co., the daughter of HAWKINS & ELIZABETH
WIGGINS CARTER. My interests in the CARTER families lie with the GREEN
families of Warren County; as well as MARY JANE CARTER, b.abt 1835,
(daughter of WILLIAM & POLLY)Warren Co, who married WILLIAM WEST, b.1824
Warren Co.; and PLUMMER CARTER, b.1800 Warren Co, who married AMY HAWKINS,
b.abt 1815. It is the GREEN, WEST and HAWKINS families that are part of my
