I see a will that is not transcribed at Wills, Colony of Georgia, RG 49-1-2, Georgia Archives for Carter, Thomas (1774-03-17). I don't read cursive well, but from an initial glance, this Thomas' wife's name is Mary. At the time of the writing of the will (8 Mar 1774), he resided at St John, Georgia. (A St John Parish does exist in Liberty County.) If this is the correct Thomas, he should be categorized as a slave owner of St John, Georgia. From a review of the listed children, this is his will, but I see no mention in it of his mother as being Mary Lewis, as is discussed on Thomas' profile.
Meanwhile, since the claim on Thomas' profile is that he is the 3rd Great-grandfather of Theodore Roosevelt, then the parents that are also in that line should be attached. Nothing is barring that. I am presenting the question here because it doesn't make sense that the Thomas who was wife of Mary should not be aligned on WikiTree.
At present, I see nothing about this will that rules him out as the son of Daniel Carter and Elizabeth Pannill and the husband of Mary. I also see a couple of points about his profile that stand correcting.
Noting also that 1) Thomas is described as a son on Daniel's profile on WikiTree, and that 2) Daniel's son Thomas Carter (d. 8 Mar 1774 in Newport, Liberty, GA), who married "Mary," has listed as his parents Daniel Carter (ca. 1700 - bef. 16 Nov 1759) and Elizabeth Pannill who have this complementary reference list at Famous Kin:

The W&M citation (# 4 in this comment list) is partially confirmatory on the parents. I say partially, because little identifying information on son Thomas is given, other than he removed to Culpeper.:
16. Daniel Carter (Thomas,2 Thomas1) appears first in the Lancaster records 17 May 1725 as the attorney of Robert Biscoe. He was married and had children when his father made his will in 1728 as his portion of the estate was left to him without mention of reversion to his brothers in case of failure to have issue, which mention was made regarding each of the unmarried sons of Thomas Carter.
16 Nov 1759, the appraisement of the personal estate of Daniel Carter Sr was returned to court by his widow Elizabeth. It amount to #343.2.4 and included Negroes (sic), books, a sword, and the usual furniture. It was divided among (the following children and grandchildren):
74. Thomas, removed to Culpeper
The citation can be checked to confirm Thomas siblings - at a quick glance, at least the females are in alignment. Some of his siblings have their progeny reported. . .
