Thanks Carrie and Betty you rock. This is my father's  fathers side. I've thought they might be connected to my father's mother's side thru the Carter's. I saw a Mary Carter mentioned in one of these sources. I may have a lead. Thanks again. I have also been looking for names of slaves. This source has some named slaves.
