Edmund J. Carter - A Texas Pioneer 1790-1857

By James R. Hewitt Jr..

Edmund J Carter was my 4th great grandfather. During my research I was very surprised to discover that I was the descendant of a free, brave and noble man who was 1/2 White and 1/2 Negro. Edmund was born on the Landon C. Carter Plantation in 1790. His older brother Emanuel was born there as well in 1788. The plantation was located on the Watauga River. Edmund was the son of a Negro Slave and an unknown white man. He took his sir name from Landon C. Carter whom we suspect to be his father.
