Direct Ancestor of Jimmy Carter
Littleberry Walker Carter (1832-1873)
In 1851 Littleberry Walker Carter married Mary Ann Diligent Seals (c.1838-c. 1874) in Warren County, Georgia. She was the daughter of William A. (b. 1814) and Eliza Harris (b. 1815) Seals of Warren County. In the mid 1850s the Carters and Seals lived in that part of Warren County that became Glascock in 1857 and it was there that William A. Seals died in 1860, and his widow in 1886.
Littleberry and Mary Ann moved c. 1860 to Sumter Co. near his father's plantation. He served in the American Civil War in Captain Cutts Sumter County Flying Artillery, serving in Virginia. Littleberry was a farmer and was buried on his farm at the time of his death at the age of 42.
Carter's great-grandfather, Private L.B. Walker Carter (1832–1873), served as a Private in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He returned home after the Civil War only to be knifed to death during a drunken brawl with his business partner, D.P. McCann. “They were fighting over the proceeds of a ‘flying jenny’, a homemade merry-go-round that they owned and operated.” McCann, who was sought for murder, vanished to South America and was never caught. 
Walkers’ wife Mary Aim, died the same day as Walker, “Due to grief at the shock of his death.”
