I'm very interested in your Walter Carr, specifically his son, James, as I'm looking for the parents of a James Carr born between 1751-1756. He had a daughter who was born 1779 in VA and was appears in Washington Co. TN court records in the early 1780s. Other Carrs listed during this time period include John Carr, Sr., John Carr, Jr., Job Carr, Margaret Carr, Mary Carr, Patrick Carr, Thomas Carr, and Walter Carr. (Washington County, TN Court Records, FHL Microfilm #825510)
A James Carr appears on a list of soldiers in Robert Doaks Company of Militia who participated in the Battle of Point Pleasant, on October 10, 1774. The soldiers marched to Camp Union, now Lewisburg, West Virginia. Also listed in this company are a George Carr, William Carr and John Carr.
My James Carr owned land that bordered the land of Samuel Carr in Blount Co. TN in the early 1800s. He died in Rhea Co. TN in 1810 and the estate sale mentioned many purchases by Samuel Carr and a debt owed by Jonathan Carr to the estate.
So many of the same names as those of the sons of Walter Carr occur in connection with my James and my James was in VA in 1779.
Please contact me as I would like to further exchange information with you.
