1. BAILEY5 CARTER (BENJAMIN4, GEORGE3, WILLIAM2, WILLIAM1)1 was born Abt. August 1743 in Spotsylvania Co, VA, and died Aft. 1820 in 1820 census Monroe Co, IN. He married NANCY WIFE OF BAILEY CARTER Abt. 1764 in Virginia. She died Aft. 1830 in Montgomery Co, VA.

Notes for BAILEY CARTER:

PROOF & TIMELINE:

------We aren't sure how he lines up in the William Carter & Mary Goodloe line, but the descendant of Bailey's DNA, is a perfect match with the descendant of William Carter's DNA.

----VIRGINIA - He lived first in Spotsylvania Co; then Buckingham Co; Then Henry Co by 1766; his property became Franklin Co in 1786; then he moved to or his land became Montgomery Co in 1798 where he died after Feb. 1811. His son John remained there and his property became Floyd Co, in 1831.

----1760, August -1764, August, Bailey is apprenticed out to JOHN WALLER JR. in Spotsylvania Co. for 4 years, probably until he reaches 21 years of age. He's apprenticed as a shoemaker, and taught to read and write. This family shows alot of importance in reading and writing. I believe his father may be John Carter, secretary of the colony, or George who died in 1789 in Spotsylvania County or his brother Joseph Carter d.1751 Spots Co. This is the only Carter family in that county at this time. John was also a constable, and a vestryman for St. Georges Parish in Spotsylvania. John worked side by side with John Waller Sr. and John Waller Jr.; "Apprentices of Virginia 1623-1800"/Harold Gill pg 41 shows the apprenticeship dates, names, county, type of apprentice. I have a copy of the original;

----1762 Henry Co, Bailey was a soldier in French & Indian War; Virginia Magazine of History & Biography, Vol 9, pg 417 shows July 27, 1780 Bailey Carter made oath that he served as a soldier in 1762 in Henry Co. in Col. Adam Stephen's Co.; He hadn't finished his apprenticeship, so he may have only been about 19 yrs. old.;

----1764 Buckingham Co Tithes - "Gen. records of Buckingham Co, VA"/Edythe Whitley pg 5, Bailey Carter, 1 tithe; Joseph Carter 1 tithe and 100 acres; George Carter 1 tithe; (probably brothers);

----1765, May 31 - Spotsylvania Co. Deed book F, pg 560 - John Waller & wife Elizabeth sell 200 acres to John Carter, Gent land that bounds John Carters land, a Mr. Chews land; Larken Chew testified to the sale; The name John Waller comes up quite often with John Carter. That is why I suspect John is Bailey's father. Also Bailey named his son John, many name a son after their father.

----1773 Buckingham Co Tithes - "Gen. records of Buckingham Co, VA"/Edythe Whitley pg 28; "buckingham Co, VA Church & Marriage Records 1764-1822"/Mary Warren pg 6; "Virginia's District courts 1789-1809"/Mary Warren pg 427; George Carter 2 tithes; Joseph Carter 2 tithes; Stephen Carter 1 tithe;

----1774 Buckingham Co tithes - 'Same references as above' - Bailey Carter included with Asop Walker 3 tithes (could this be his brother/father-in-law?); John Carter including Huddleston Carter 2 tithes; George Carter 1 tithe; Joseph Carter 1 tithe; Stephen Carter 1 tithe;

----1774 April 16 - "The virginia Genealogist" Vol 6, #1 pg 62 - British Mercantile Claims, Treaty of Peace of 1783 provided for the settlement of debts owed British merchants. Bailey Carter judgement at Cumberland Store, issued, assets not found. Several executions has previously been issued and returned no effects.

----1777, Oct 31,- Henry Co. - Bailey took oath of allegiance; Virginia Magazine of History & Biography, Vol 9, pg 14 - shows Bailey took oath of allegiance in Oct. 31, 1777 in Henry County;

----1778-1780- Taxes in Henry Co., "1778-1780 Tax Lists of henry co, VA"/Lela Adams, listed are Bailey, Baynes, Joseph, Josiah, George & David Carter.

----1780, July 27 - "Virginia's Colonial Soldiers"/Lloyd Bockstruck lists Henry Co., pg 254, Bounty Land applications, Bailey Carter filed for bounty land because he served as a soldier in col Adam Stephen's company in 1762 in French and Indian War.

----1783, Mar 29,- Henry Co, Deed from Bailey Carter to John Oakes both of Henry Co 100 acres on Nicholas Creek wit: Joseph & John Carter (probable brothers). "abstracts of Henry Co, Va, Deed Books 1&2"/Lela Adams pg 122;

He recorded 78 households in present day SW Franklin Co and NW Henry Co. . . .Frontier farmers did not rely only on produce and livestock for their livelihoods. As Woods's list indicates, they practiced trades as well. Wm Griffith, for example, made hats, while his next door neighbor, Owen Ruble, had both a smith's shop and a turner's shop. The next man on the list, BAILEY CARTER, owned a shop for which the purpose was not stated. Perhaps the three farms, which were located on Turners

Creek near the intersection of present day Rts 748 and 752, formed a community of home industries that attracted purchasers from the general neighborhood. (I do not have a copy of this reference yet)

----1787, Jan 12 - Franklin co, - Deed bk 1, pg 167-168 - Bailey's son John Carter of Franklin co. is on his own now and buys 100 acres on Oter Creek from Joseph Carter of Buckingham Co.

----1795, Nov 19, - Franklin Co, - John Carter (son) married Fanny McCutcheon.

pg(33)

Richard Franklin Simpson, the seventh and youngest child of Col. John and Mary (Wells) Simpson, was born March 25th, 1798; married Dec. 27th, 1836, Mary Margaret Taliaferro, third daughter of Zacariah and Margaret Chew (Caster) Taliaferro, both born and married in Virginia; and died Oct. 28th, 1862. Maj. Richard F. Simpson graduated at the South Carolina College, at the age of 18 years, studied law under Job. Johnson, at Newberry, and settled and practiced law at Laurens Court House, S.C. After a few years practice, he abandoned the law and engaged in merchandising and cotton manufacturing, his factory being located at Burnt Factory, on Raburns Creek, Laurens County. He served several times in the Legislature, both in the House and Senate. While Senator from Laurens County, he met at Columbia Miss Margaret Talilaferro, who was visiting the State Capitol with Dr. Broyles, her brother-in-law, who was a member from Anderson County. Shortly after this he volunteered with the Laurens County Company to go to the Seminole War, in Florida. He was elected Captain of the Company, but was appointed Major of the South Carolina Regiment, and carried his Battalion (cavalry) to Florida. Lieut. Col. Butler commanded the other Battalion. After the war was over, upon his return to the State, he was offered the position of Governor, but Col. Butler asked him to let him have the position which he, in his unselfish nature, consented to do, and Butler was elected Governor. He visited Miss Taliaferro at her home, at Pendleton, S.C., and married her Dec. 27th, 1836.He then resigned the position of Senator from Laurens and moved to Pendleton, and ever after resided upon old Taliaferro homestead, which his wife inherited. In 1843 he was nominated by the members of the Legislature from his Congressional District, as their candidate for Congress, and was elected, and by repeated elections served until 1849, when he was thrown from his buggy and nearly killed. During his last term in Congress he had to walk upon crutches. This injury decided him to quit public life, and he was succeeded by Col. James L. Orr. During

pg(34)

his career in Congress he was a warm friend and supporter of John C. Calhoun, who also resided at or near Pendleton. He was in favor of secession, and was elected to the Secession Convention, and voted to take the State out of the Union. Maj. Simpson was an earnest and devoted Christian, a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. He was perhaps the most popular man in the Simpson family, and his numerous namesakes in this book abundantly show. But his popularity was not confined alone to his family; it extended to the rich and the poor all over the State and out of the State, wherever known. His generosity and unselfishness were proverbial. His relations, old and young, delighted to visit him and loved him for his generous and wholesoul hospitality. His great aim in life was to make others happy. He was the peace maker of this section, and many a duel he has avoided; frequently sent for from fifty to sixty miles, and so great was the confidence had for his high sense of right and honor, he seldom if ever failed to bring about a friendly adjustment of the difficulty. He lived honored, loved and respected, and died at a good old age. It is a common remark that if any man ever went to Heaven, Maj. Simpson is that man.

Mary Margaret (Taliaferro) Simpson, was the third daughter of Zachariah Taliaferro, who was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. After the war he studied law and removed from Carolina County, Va., to Columbia, S.C. After some years he returned to Virginia and married Margaret Chew Carter, a daughter of John Carter and his wife Hannah (Chew) Carter, who had the following children:

Mary Carter, who married Maj. Stephens

Lucy Carter, who married Benton Taliaferro

Judith Carter, married Joseph Sutton

Robert Carter, who never married

Bailey Carter, who never married

Margaret Chew Carter, who married Zachariah Taliaferro. After his marriage, Mr. Taliaferro settled near old Pickensville, S.C., then the Court House for Washington District, and practiced Law. After the District was divided into Pendleton and Greenville Districts, he settled at his old homestead, three miles from Pendleton, and continued the practice of law and farming. He was a man of fine judgment, and accumulated a large fortune, which he divided among his four daughters, Sarah Ann T. who married Dr. O. R. Broyles; Lucy Hannah, who married Col. David S. Taylor; Mary Margaret, who married Maj. Richard F. Simpson, and Caroline Virginia, who married Dr. H. C. Miller. These four families were among the most prominent families of the upper part of the State.

Richard Franklin Simpson and Mary Margaret (Taliaferro) Simpson had the following children:

John Simpson, b. 1837, died in infancy.

Taliaferro Simpson - P 34

Richard Wright Simpson - P 35

Mary Margaret Simpson - P 37

John Garlington Simpson, b. Apr. 12th, 1846, d. Nov. 26th, 1858

Taliaferro Simpson, the second child of Richard F. and Mary Margaret (Taliaferro) Simpson, was born Jan. 26th, 1839. He graduated at Wofford College, Spartanburg, S.C. Just before graduating, he being Captain of the College Company, he offered its services to the Governor, but the latter declined because he did not wish the College to be broken up.

-----OBITUARY - "David V. Carter, Found in 9 March 1900 issue Fannin Co., Texas "Bonham News"

Monday last at his home at the county farm, superintendent D. (David) V. CARTER died after an illness of a week. His death was caused by an ulceration of the bowels. His suffering was most intense but he bore it bravely. On Tuesday his body was laid to rest in the Carson cemetery, two and a half miles north of Ector.

The deceased was born in Floyd Co., Va., in August 1847. He served in the Confederate Army and at the close of the war he went from Virginia to Kentucky where in 1878 he was married to Miss Annie E. Twyman. In 1881 they came to Texas, and have made their home in this county since. His widow and 2 sons, Emmet and Lorenzo, survive him.

For something more than 4 years Mr. Carter had been superintendent of the county farm and had served the county most acceptably in that capacity. No one had ever managed the farm any better than he and it is not probable that a better man for the place can be found.

Mr. Carter was a good man & good citizen, a good neighbor. For 30 years he had led a Christian life, having confessed Christ and united with the Christian church in Kentucky. He expressed himself as being ready and willing to go to receive his reward for the deeds done in the body. The influence of his good life will live on while his body moulders into dust.

---- OBITUARY - Another obituary for him reads "Death of Mr. D.V. Carter. Mr. D.V. Carter, superintendent of the county farm died Monday. This is a sad announcement. Mr. Carter was one of our best citizens. He had won the confidence of the public to a wonderful degree by his executive ability in the management of the county farm. He fully met the demands devolving upon him toward the unfortunate inmates of the poor house, managed the county convicts with wisdom and carefully controlled the finances of the institution. The remains were interred at Carson's graveyard, a few miles north of Ector, Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock.

Captured at Corrigan Ind. sent to Camp Moton, Div.6 prisoners. Got out at end of war. He moved to Bonham, Tx about 1900. Was in Sul Ross Camp #164 of United Confed. Vets.

-----I have a copy of his pension file # 23096, Fannin co, TX;

------Some of the Information came from Mrs. Ray Taylor, Granddaughter (903)583-3659.

------ I believe this family is related to Bailey Carter and to John & Fannie (McCutcheon) Carter in Floyd co, VA. because a couple of John & Fannie's children moved to Barren Co, KY also, and one son, David V. Carter died in Fannin Co, Tx. and was in the same Sul Ross Confed. Vet. camp.

Notes for HENRY CARTER:

I think this might be another son of the Henry Carter & Mariah Mathews (I suspect is grandson of Bailey) in Barren County. This Henry was born in 1849 which fits in by date. He died and is buried in the same cemetery as David V. Carter who is (gr-grandson of Bailey). SEE BELOW:
