In 19 years of research Wendi, you are the first CARTER connection to ever reach out to me! This is simply UNBELIEVABLE. I'm speechless!
Philip CARTER (born about 1826) of Wilkes County was my 3rd Great Grandfather. I have never found more than 1 Philip Carter in Wilkes County. Is there a ship manifest for Perseverance you're referencing? Were ages of the children and/or Sophia listed? Do you have a family tree I can review?
I received your email & will respond tonight. EXCITED!:)
