I don't have an original source, but I can refer you to Pelletreau's "History of Putnam County", a generally reliable secondary source. In a footnote on page 358 he states that:

"Hosea Barnabas Carver (son of Timothy the second) married Hannah, daughter of James Townsend, and had children: James M., Frederick, and Stephen W., who is now living in the town of Carmel".

It seems that some researchers have confused Hosea Barnabas Carver (sometimes referred to as simply Barnabas) with his uncle Judge Barnabas Carver (1761-1831), who married Sarah Cole (1763-1851); these researchers list Hannah Townsend as the 2nd wife of Judge Carver, when in reality she was the wife of Judge Carver's nephew, Hosea Barnabas Carver.
