Biography

Jacob Carter of South Carolina

Disputed Origins

Jacob has been misidentified as the son of Moore Carter. Moore Carter did have a son named Jacob Carter of about the same age as this Jacob Carter, but Moore's son, Jacob, died in North Carolina, and never lived in South Carolina. DNA evidence also proves that this Jacob Carter is not a descendant of the Carter family to which Moore Carter belongs. The misidentification of Jacob as Moore's son goes back almost 100 years, but DNA proof now definitely proves Jacob of South Carolina is not the son of Moore.[1]

Origin

Jacob was born c. 1720.[2] Jacob's parentage is unknown.

US Census 1790

US Census 1790, St Bartholomew's Parish, Charleston District, South Carolina
Household of Jacob Carter, Senior: 1 male > 16; 1 female > 16; 1 slave.[3]

Death and Legacy

Jacob died c. 1800.[2]

Carter-5552 and Carter-3209 do not represent the same person because: The father of Carter 3209 is not the George Carter shown as the father of Carter 5552. DNA has established that beyond any doubt. I don't want to compound the error by letting my Carter 3209 be merged with Carter 5552 since Carter 5552 contains a known error.

**Some of the children on this profile appear to be duplicates, possibly from a previous merge.

I'm not skilled enough to untangle it. Sorry!**

Jacob Carter would have been about 12 or 13 when his daughter Mary Ann was born.

Which Sarah is the correct wife?

Thanks!
