From what my mother (Cleo O. McCarta, McCarta-11 ) has told me she was told by her Mother, McCarta name changed from McCarty when they came over to US, and changed name because of something to do about some stolen pigs.

 

Now Im just looking for similiar story(ies) and/or some type of confirmation of the name change.
