This project is not quite closed. I think I have untangled the mess with John Carpenter having two Thomas's for sons, both married to Nancy's. There are still some children of the Nancy's that I am not certain are correctly apportioned out. Anyone who wants to tackle that is welcome.Likewise, I am less than satisfied at having used secondary sources for sorting out these siblings and their wives and children. There are references to a lot of Ancestry.Com sources in the family search material, Perhaps I will decide to subscribe long enough to see if any of them are primary sources. However, it is easy to get confused in this very large family where everyone is fond of naming their children after their siblings, parents, or uncles and aunts.
