McCarters of New York from Ireland

McCarters of New York from Ireland

I have been researching my McCarters from Ireland for about 8 years. I have found that my McCarters came from Northern Ireland about 1760's and landed in Washington County.
I belive they came with Dr.Thomas Clark on May 10, 1764 wich sail from Newry. The ship brought safely 300 passengers, they arrived in New York on July 28th. Acording to the Salem Book, The Scotch Irish Colony the 300 that arrived and split up and several families went to Abberville District, S.C. where they settle in Ceder Spring area. I belive this is where Moses McCarter came from. The rest went on to Stillwater, New York and later to Salem. Some of this colony went to New England. In The Turner Patent in the town of Salem list John,Robert McCarter and later Sameul McCarter. Also in the Argyle Patent list other McCarters and McArthurs.
I was wondering if anyone else has worked in these areas? Has anyone study Dr. Clarks arrival to America in 1764?
I would be interested in what others have found.

Hello:

Moses McCarter of Abbeville District, SC was living in what is now known as Lancaster Co.
Pennsylvania. He is found on the tax lists for that area in 1751 and 1752. His family lived near the area of Bart Township. He was also witness to a will for Janet Parry/Perry. A possible relation of his was Abraham McCarter, the son-in-law of Samuel Carson and both these men lived in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

So I belive these McCarters were living in Colonial America before 1764. There may be a possibility that Moses was born in Maryland, second possibility is Delaware.

Thanks

Moses McCarter

Thank you Anna Walker, I had never heard where Moses McCarter had came from before. I have a record of a Robert McCarter from the Rev. War wich states Robert's father left the family to return to vist Penn. to be with family. I still belive that my New York McCarters had ties with the McCarters in South Carolina. Just my crazy thinking!
Happy Hunting.

Hello:
No, you are not crazy for thinking that. The McCarters in Delaware - John McCarter, foot solider in 1735. McCarters in Pennsylvania 1740's to 1750's and later. And the McCarters in New York, could have all been related.

Also, another thing about Moses McCarter. It does seem that after 1758. Won't swear to that particular year, left Pennsylvania, and moved to Virginia for just a short time, on his way to the Carolinas.

One of his younger daughters was born in Virginia, according to one of her descendant that lived in Florida.

Also the McCarters of Loudoun County, Virginia are believed to be some relation to Moses McCarter, because a John McCarter of Loudon County, Virginia named his son Moses Taylor McCarter born in 1780. And the McCarters in Pennsylvania may have had ties to the Taylors in Maryland.

It would seem these McCarters of not only Loudoun County, Virginia, but also of Henrico County, Virginia knew the Bates Family that lived in Goochland and Henrico Counties, Virginia.

Moses McCarter's daughter Margaret married Fleming Bates from Goochland County, Virginia. Fleming Bates served during the Rev. War in Virginia.

Fleming Bates married Margaret McCarter in Abbeville, South Carolina.

After Virginia, Moses and family moved to North Carolina. Moses' son James McCarter was born in the Waxhaw Settlement of North Carolina on 5/28/1765.

Moses purchased his first tract of land in what was then Mecklenburg County, North Carolina in the 1760's.

Abraham McCarter, believed to be a close relation to Moses, purchased 200 acres on Crowders Creek in North Carolina in 1772.

So there seems to be a lot of evidence that Moses McCarter was in Colonial America before Dr. Clark in 1764.

Thanks
Anna

You are on the right track. My McCarters came to PA from the North of Ireland in 1803 and most other McCarters I have observed also were Ulster Scots. I can send further information to you on this subject.

Cordially,

Would love to connect to the family of Margaret McCarter born about 1748. I have her husband as being Jesse Neville born about 1768. I descend from her daughter Winifred born 1782. Not knowing much of my fathers family I researched through many places. I noticed that the women of the family are most the time left out. I would love to find Margaret McCarter's family and maybe a story or two I could share with my living family. My father passed in 2000 and we all miss him dearly. A family story would be wonderful to share.
