PREFACE. 

In 18S7 a genealogy of two of the sons of Samuel, oldest son of 
the Rev. Thomas Carter, first minister of Woburn, Mass., was 
published by Mrs. Clara A. Carter of Leominster, Mass., and Mrs. 
Sarah A. Carter of Fitzwilliam, N. H. This publication was de- 
signed to be merely a contribution to the history of the Carter 
Family, and was collected and arranged for the Carter Family 
Association, an organization formed at the general Reunion of the 
Carter Family at Woburn, Mass., in 1884. This Association unfortu- 
nately was not maintained, but the present volume is also issued as a 
further contribution to the history of another branch of the same 
family, namely, Thomas 3 Carter, son of Thomas^ Carter, youngest 
son and child of Rev. Thomas ' Carter. 

It is to be regretted that a complete record of the descendants of 
the other sons of Thomas^ Carter could not have been included in 
this volume, but the preparation of such a work by the present 
writer has been entirely out of the question. 

He has, however, gathered and preserved all facts concerning the 
descendants of the other sons which have come under his notice, 
and most of them are herewith presented. It is to be hoped that 
at no distant day a complete genealogy of the descendants of the 
Rev. Thomas Carter may be prepared, and that then these partial 
records may be perfected and incorporated into a general history of 
the family. It is known that a large amount of additional material 
for such a work has been collected by different individuals, chiefly 
descendants of Samuel % since the publication of the book referred to 
above in 1887, and all who are interested in the family history should 
without delay write down in permanent form family records or facts 
of interest with which they may be familiar before they are forgotten 
or it may be lost forever. 

In the present volume only the briefest account of the various 
individuals has been given, and without doubt many errors, especially 



PREFACE. 5 

in the matter of dates, will be found, for as is usual in such cases, 
statistics of the same family furnished by different individuals do not 
agree with each other or with the records of the town or church. 
The writer will be grateful, however, to have his attention called to 
such or any other errors that may be detected, and a careful record 
of them will be kept. 

To the many correspondents and others who have given aid and 
encouragement in the preparation of this book, the compiler would 
return heartiest thanks ; merely to have made the acquaintance of 
many of them by correspondence, so to say, has been in a large 
measure compensation for the labor involved in the undertaking, and 
it has been a privilege indeed to meet personally some who but for 
this work would doubtless have remained strangers still. To all who 
bear the name or inherit the blood of the common ancestor, the 
compiler extends warmest greetings. 

Special acknowledgment is due to the skillful and accomplished 
genealogist, Miss L. Belle Hamlin, at present Librarian of the His- 
torical and Philosophical Society of Ohio at Cincinnati, for assistance 
in various ways, and particularly for establishing the ancestry of 
Thomas3 Carter (N. E. Hist, and Gen. Reg., Vol. LV, p. 223;, and 
for tracing the line of his second wife, Sarah Gilbert. Miss HamHn 
is a great-granddaughter of Major Lorenzo Carter (48), one of the 
first settlers of Cleveland, O. 

But more than to all others combined, the compiler is indebted to 
his wife, Mrs. Nellie Russell Cordis Carter, without whose constant 
and unfailing aid and encouragement during all the years, the work 
would never have been carried to completion. 

In making acknowledgments, the care and patience of the printers, 
Messrs. C. B. Fiske & Co. of Palmer, Mass., should be mentioned, 
and there is no doubt but the excellence of their work, as also that 
of the James B. McKinnon Photo Engraving Company of Spring- 
field, Mass., and of the binder, Mr. W.J. Eldred, also of Springfield, 
will be appreciated by all judges of good bookmaking. 



EXPLANATORY NOTE. 

The general plan of this Genealogy is as follows : It includes, so 
far as ascertained, (a) all persons bearing the name of Carter of this 
line ; (b) the names of all persons who have married these Carters, 
with the names of their parents ; (c) the names of all children of 
Carter females, with the record of their families carried out, when 
known, at least one generation. Great pains has been taken to give 
exact date and place of all births, marriages and deaths, but without 
doubt many errors and omissions occur. Humanum est errare ; 
particularly so, it would seem, in matters genealogical. 

As to the details of the plan : — The emigrant ancestor, Rev. 
Thomas Carter, is numbered i. At the left of the names of his 
children (pp. 17 and 18), as in all similar cases throughout the book, 
the Roman numerals, i, ii, iii, etc., indicate the order of birth. 

The Arabic numerals, 2, 3, 4, etc., which also appear at the left 
of some names of children, indicate that such child married, and an 
account of that family will be found under the corresponding number 
on a subsequent page. The small superior figures denote the 
generation, the emigrant ancestor being reckoned as the first. 

Thus Thomas^ Carter, the son of the emigrant, appears on page 
18 as the eighth child of his father. Rev. Thomas' Carter, and the 
number 2, prefixed to his name, shows that he is taken up again. 
On the same page below, under the heading, " Second Generation," 
his history is given, and prefixed to the name of his second child, 
Thomas, the number 3 appears. 

Turning forward to page 19, we find the history of Thomas 3 
Carter under the number 3. And so on with his children as found 
on page 27. To trace one's ancestral line backward, the process 
above described is simply reversed. It should be noted that all the 
descendants of the five sons of Thomas^ Carter, — Thomas 3, 
Eleazer3, Daniel 3, Ebenezer3 and Ezra 3, — are given by themselves, 
the descendants of Thomas 3 being finished before those of the next 
oldest brother are taken up. 

The ordinary abbreviations are used, as follows : b., born ; d., 
died ; m., married ; unm., unmarried ; ae., aged ; dau., daughter ; 
res., residence or resided ; T. S., tombstone ; J. P., Justice of the 
Peace ; Reg., New England Historic Genealogical Register.

REV. THOMAS CARTER. 



The birthplace and the parentage of the Rev. Thomas' Carter, 
first minister of Woburn, Mass., cannot be stated with certainty, but 
there is no reasonable doubt that he was a native of Suffolk County, 
England, and there is ground for the belief that he was the son of 
James Carter, yeoman, of Hinderclay, Suffolk County, whose will, 
dated August, 1625, proved Oct. i, 1625, is on file at Bury 
St. Edmunds. For a full discussion of this matter, the reader is 
referred to an article contributed by the writer to the Boston 
Evening Transcript, June i, 1904. 

Early genealogists not unnaturally assumed that the Rev. Thomas 
Carter was identical with the Thomas Carter who embarked at 
London April 2, 1635, on board The Planter, Nicholas Trerice, 
master, with a number of others from St. Albans, Hertfordshire, 
bound for New England. Later investigations, however, show quite 
conclusively that the Thomas Carter who came over in the Planter 
settled in Salisbury, Mass., although his age as given in the record of 
the Planter, twenty-five, corresponds exactly with that of the Rev. 
Thomas Carter as calculated from the record of his death, Sept. 5, 
1874, " in the 74th year of his age." 

This statement, however, like many early records of age at time 
of death, is very likely incorrect, but it is an unfortunate fact for 
the investigator that there were among the early settlers no fewer 
than four Thomas Carters, — three of them in New England, — all 
arriving about the same time and all of about the same age. These 
are: (i) Rev. Thomas Carter, first minister of Woburn, Mass.; 

(2) Thomas Carter of the Planter, who settled in Salisbury, Mass.; 

(3) Thomas Carter, eldest son of Thomas Carter, blacksmith, of 
Charlestown, who deposed, 1662, that he was about fifty-two years 
old, and hence born about 1610; and (4) Thomas Carter, aged 



lO REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

twenty-five, who embarked from London in the Safety, Aug. lo, 
1635, for Virginia, on which ship also came John Carter, aged 
twenty-two, by many supposed to be the ancestor of the so-called 
"Virginia Carters." It may be here remarked that this Thomas 
Carter is not heard of later in Virginia, and there are some grounds 
for believing that John and Thomas Carter, who came to Virginia in 
1635, if not brothers, were related, John, being a strong supporter of 
the Church of England, remaining in Virginia, while Thomas, the 
Puritan from Cambridge University, went to New England. 

Among the reasons for believing that John and Thomas Carter of 
Virginia were in some way related are the following : — 

(1) Among early descendants of the Rev. Thomas Carter is 
found the same coat of arms as that claimed by the Virginia 
Carters. 

(2) There was frequent communication between Virginia and 
Massachusetts in the early days. For example, at the time of the 
installation of Rev. Thomas Carter at Woburn, 1642, the Rev. Mr. 
Knowles, assistant pastor of the church in Watertown, from which 
Mr. Carter came, "was absent on a special mission to preach the 
gospel in Virginia." 

(3) As before remarked, no more is heard of Thomas Carter, 
who came to Virginia in the Planter. 

But returning to accepted facts, we find that the Rev. Thomas 
Carter was matriculated a sizar of St. John's College, Cambridge 
University, April i, 1626, at which university he took the degree of 
Bachelor of Arts in January, 1629/30, and that of Master of Arts in 
1633. In June, 1900, while the writer was on a visit to Cambridge, 
the following entry was found among the old records of St. John's 
College. It occurs in a list of students who secured scholarships at 
the university, and is dated Nov. 5, 1628 : 

" Ego Thomas Carter Suffolciensis admissus sum discipulus hujus 
coUegij pro magistro Spaldinge." (I Thomas Carter, of Suffolk, am 
admitted as a student of this College on the Spalding scholarship.) 

The Spalding scholarship was founded by William Spalding, 
yeoman, of Tamwarth, in Suffolk, who gave jQ()0, and stipulated 
that the scholar was to be chosen from Bury St. Edmunds Grammar 
School, an institution founded by King Edward VI in 1550. 

According to the Bursar of St. John's College, Mr. R. F. Scott, 
who very courteously made search and discovered the above entry, 



REV. THOMAS CARTER. II 

the record proves that the holder of the scholarship was not only 
a resident of Suffolk at the time, but that he was also a native of the 
county, A comparison of photographic copies of the pages of the 
Cambridge University Record book showing the signatures of Thomas 
Carter when he took the degree of B. A. in 1629, and of M. A. in 
1633, and of the above entry, with similar copies of manuscript 
known to be in the handwriting of the Rev. Thomas Carter of 
Woburn, Mass., is interesting as going to prove the identity of the 
writer. 

It may here be remarked that further and careful search of the 
records at Cambridge, and at Bury St. Edmunds, by Mr. Vincent B. 
Redstone of Woodbridge, Suffolk, secretary of the Suffolk 
Archaeological Institute, and a genealogist of wide reputation, failed 
to discover additional information concerning the subject of this 
sketch. 

In this connection it is interesting to note that the Rev. Thomas 
Carter was for several years (i 628-1 633) a fellow student at 
Cambridge University with the Rev. John Harvard, the founder of 
Harvard College, and that both afterward came to America and 
were settled in neighboring communities. It is more than probable 
that these young men were well acquainted while at the university. 
It is certain that a similarity of tastes and inclinations led them to 
emigrate to New England at about the same time, both entering 
the ministry. Both were made freemen of the Colony of 
Massachusetts in the same year, 1637. 

So far as the writer knows, the next authentic knowledge of Mr. 
Carter is the fact of his being admitted a freeman of Dedham, 
Mass., March 9, 1636/7, (April 25, 1637, O. 8.) being "presented" 
by Philemon Dalton. (Dedham Records.) 

His residence here, however, was brief, for previous to the 
formation of the church in Dedham, 1638, John Allin, afterwards 
chosen first minister of Dedham, " moved to y^ Pastour of 
watertowne y' seeing divers of ther members lived with us & mr. 
Carter one of them had exercised some good time ther & knew 
y*= people better than I, that therefore it would please ther church 
to dismisse m"" Carter & such other of ther members as they 
judged meete to prepare with us such as should be thought fitt for 
y^ laying of y^ foundation of a church society amonst us, but for 
some reasons he did not judge it either needful! or according to 



12 REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

order to dismisse any but unto a settled church & so refused 
y^ request." From the above and other records it would appear 
that Thomas Carter had "exercised" his spiritual gifts already in 
Dedham, and at this time was filling the office of Elder in the 
church at Watertown, for the church records of Dedham, a year or 
two later, refer to "ye elders of Watertowne in a letter subscribed by 
nV Philip pastour ; m^ Carter m"^ How elders, testifying y' y^ church 
ther" gave power to certain of their members residing in Dedham 
to unite with the Dedham church. 

In Watertown Thomas Carter was granted a homestall of ten acres 
and, in 1642, a farm of 92 acres and a lot in the town plot. 

The estimation in which he was held in Watertown may be 
inferred from the fact that it is noted in the Woburn Town Records 
that he had not been applied to sooner because " it had been 
doubted whether Watertown would be willing to part with him." 

Mr. Carter preached in Woburn for the first time Dec. 4, 1641, 
this being the second service of public worship ever held in the new 
town, and took for his text a passage in Gen. xxii, of which sermon 
the town record says, " incouraging to trust in the Lord for the 
Means." This discourse or his previous reputation seems to have 
made a favorable impression upon the people of Woburn, for the 
Town Records state : 

" 1641, Dec. 19. They now all at Mr Carter, who was very 
backward to promise anything, but only to bee helpfull to them at 
sum tims which was very seldom." 

" 1642, March i. They went to Mr. Carter, who was very shy in 
promising helpe constantly." 

"April II. Some now went to Mr. Philips, (minister of Water- 
town) who did not incouridge them about Mr. Carter." 

"April 14. Mr. Carter was intreated to spend a day of 
humiliation amongst them, after the which they had sum good 
encouragement, and he helped them too Sabbath days together 
after it." 

" May 4. They moved for a dismission from Charlestown church 
upon sum hope they had of Mr. Carter's help." 

"Aug. 14. A Church gathered at Woburn. Mr. Knowles, 
(assistant pastor of Watertown) Mr. Allen, (pastor of Dedham) Mr. 
Symes, Mr. Carter and divers other godly and faithful ministers of 



REV. THOMAS CARTER. 1 3 

Christ held out the wright hand of fellowship in the name of the 
other Churches." 

After much persuasion, Mr. Carter finally yielded a reluctant 
consent and became the first minister in Woburn, being ordained 
November 22, 1642. 

In Winthrop's "History of New England from 1630 to 1649," is 
given the following account of the ceremony : — 

"The village at the end of Charlestown bounds, was called 
Woburn when they gathered a church, and this day Mr Carter was 
ordained their pastor with the assistance of the elders of other 
Churches ; some difference ther was about his ordination ; some 
advising in regard they had no elder of their own, nor any members 
fit to solemnize such an ordinance, they would desire some of the 
elders of the other Churches to have performed it ; but others 
supposing it might be an occasion of introducing a dependancy of 
Churches, etc., and so a presbytery, would not allow it, so it was 
performed by one of their own members, but not so well or orderly 
as it ought." 

Capt. Edward Johnson, one of the principal founders both of the 
church and the town, was present on this occasion, and thus 
describes the manner of the ordination in his " Wonder Working 
Providence" (published in 1654) : 

" After he (Thomas Carter) had exercised in preaching and 
prayer the greater part of the day, two persons in the name of the 
Church laid their hands upon his head and said. We ordain thee 
Thomas Carter to be Pastor of this Church of Christ : then one of 
the elders present, desired of the Church, continued in prayer unto 
the Lord for his more especial assistance, of this his servant in his 
work, being a charge of such weighty importance as is the glory of 
God and the salvation of souls, that the very thought would make a 
man to tremble in the sense of his own inability to the work." 

At his ordination, the town presented him with a house, which 
they built for his use, and also engaged to give him a salary of ^80 
annually, one-fourth of which was to be in silver, the remainder in 
various necessaries of life, at current prices. 

This compensation was increased in 1674 by the grant of twenty 
cords of wood annually, to be delivered at his door. 

From the time of his ordination, Mr. Carter ministered constantly 
to this people without aid for thirty-six years, when the Rev. Jabez 



14 REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

Fox was chosen assistant pastor. He continued in the service with 
Mr. Fox for six years more until his death in 1684, thus making the 
entire period of his ministry at Woburn more than forty- two years. 

As to the personal characteristics of the Rev. Thomas Carter, 
Johnson, in his "Wonder Working Providence," above quoted, speaks 
of him as a " reverend Godly Man, apt to teach the sound and 
wholesome truths of Christ ;" and one who had " much encreased 
with the encreasings of Christ Jesus." 

Sewell, in his History of Woburn, says : " Mr. Carter appears to 
have lived secluded in great measure from the world ; and hence he 
is seldom if ever named in history among the eminent clergymen of 
his day. Still there is abundant evidence that he was a very pious, 
exemplary man, an able and sound preacher of the gospel, and one 
whom God honored and prospered in his work. Under his 
ministrations, the church was greatly enlarged and built up, and the 
town flourished, and was for the most part in peace." By another 
it is said of him : "During his ministry, which was prolonged more 
than forty-two years, there appears to have been the greatest 
harmony between him and the society." In the following lines 
addressed to him in the "Wonder Working Providence," Mr. Carter 
is represented as a plain, but faithful and successful minister ; a 
pastor of distinguished humility and meekness, and in gentleness 
toward his flock, as rather exceeding than otherwise : 

"Carter, Christ hath his wayes thee taught, and thou 

Hast not witheld his Word, but unto all 

With's word of power dost cause stout souls to bow, 

And meek as lambs before thy Christ to fall : 

The antient truths, plain paths, they fit thee best, 

Thy humble heart all haughty acts puts by; 

The lowly heart, Christ learns his lovely hest, 

Thy meekness shews thy Christ to thee is nigh. 

Yet must thou shew, Christ makes his bold to be 

As lions, that none may his truths tread down ; 

Pastoral power he hath invested thee 

With ; it maintain, leest he on thee do frown. 

Thy youth thou hast in this New England spent. 

Full sixteen years to water, plant and prune 

Trees taken up, and for that end here sent ; 

Thy end's with Christ; with's saints his praises tune." 

Mr. Carter died September 5, 1684, and from the fact that his

will, which is on record in the Middlesex Probate Ofifice, is nuncupa- 
tive, — that is, verbal, not written, — it is conjectured that his last 
sickness must have been very sudden and brief, and two items in the 
bill for his funeral expenses suggest that it may have been some 
malignant disease. The bill was presented to the selectmen October 
6, 1684, and at a general meeting of the inhabitants on the same 
day, by unanimous vote, it was ordered paid. It was also voted that 
the rate for Mr. Carter's salary should " be compleated and payd for 
this yeare as formerly." The bill follows :

There is little doubt that Mary, wife of the Rev. Thomas Carter, 
was Mary Parkhurst, daughter of George Parkhurst Sr. of Watertown 
and Boston, and that she was baptized in Ipswich, Suffolk County, 
England, August 28, 1614. If so she was daughter of Phebe, the 
first wife of George Parkhurst. Among the reasons for this belief 
are the following : 

(i). She is associated in the Ruth Dalton deed with known children of 
George I Parkhurst. Reg. xxvii, p. 364. 

(2). George I Parkhurst had a daughter, Mary, baptized in Ipswich, 
England, Aug. 28, 161 4, where he had eight other children baptized and the 
names of six of the baptized children appear in the Dalton deed, — that is, 
the Christian names are the same. 

She died at Woburn, March 28, 1687. (Reg. xvii, p. 51.) 

No record of the marriage of Rev. Thomas Carter and Mary 

Parkhurst has been found, but their first child, Samuel, was born in 

Watertown, Aug. 8, 1640.

SECOND GENERATION. 

2. Thomas 2 Carter {Rev. Thomas ■) was born in Woburn, Mass., 
June 8, 1655. The exact date of his death is not known, but he 
was living at least as late as Sept. 21, 1722, when he and his wife, 
Margery, acknowledged a deed originally given by them in 1688. 
He is described in deeds as " husbandman," and was evidently 
possessed of considerable lands, some of which were given him by 
his father. In September, 1713, he deeds to son Eleazer a dwelling 
house, barn, etc., and 25 acres of land with garden and orchards 
bounded by land of " my brother, Timothy Carter." Other deeds 
are recorded (as under Thomas Carter) but no will has been found. 

He married in 1682, Margaret (or Margery) Whittemore, (or 
Whitmore), b. Sept. 9, 1668, d. Oct. 5, 1734, dau. of Francis 
Whittemore of Cambridge and his wife, Margaret Harty (or Hartz).

THIRD GENERATION. 

3. Thomas 3 Carter {Thomas ^^ Rev. Thomas^) was born in 
Woburn June 13, 1668. In 1710 his father conveyed land to him 
on " Reading Line," the deed being signed also by his mother, 
" Margaret Carter." In a deed dated 1611 he is called "Thomas 
Carter of Reading, Wheelwright." 

He married (i) at Reading, Feb. 19, 17 13, Abigail Locke of 
Woburn. Feb. 19, 1720/21, Thomas Carter "owned ye covenant" 
in Weston, Mass., and his three children, Thomas, Abigail and 
Elizabeth, were baptized. Two other children, Anna and Benjamin, 
were also baptized in Weston later. 

Thomas Carter's brother Daniel was living in Weston in 1723, — 
perhaps earlier, — and had several children born there. 

Oct. 20, 1726, William Smith of Weston sells to Thomas Career 
of Weston, land in Hebron, Ct., and Dec. 12, 1726, Thomas Carter 
and wife Abigail " of Hebron " convey land and house in Weston, 
Mass. From the above and other records, it would appear that 
Thomas Carter removed from Reading to Weston about 17 18 or 
1719, where he remained until 1726, when he removed to Hebron, 
Ct. (Middlesex, Mass., Co. Records, vol. 44, p. 140; Hebron, Ct., 
Land Records, vol. 2, p. 48.) 

April 10, 1729, Abigail (Locke) Carter died leaving five children, 
and Dec. 9, 1730, Thomas3 Carter married (2) Sarahs Gilbert, dau. 
of Samuels Gilbert (Samuel,^ Jonathan') and Mercy, dau. of Isaac 
and Sarah (Boltwood) Warner. 

Jonathan' Gilbert, great-grandfather of Sarah4 (Gilbert) Carter, 
was the well-known Jonathan Gilbert who was so prominent in the 
affairs of the Colony of Connecticut from 1645 until his death in 
1682. He was collector of customs at Hartford, deputy to the 
General Court, marshal of the colony, and often engaged in 
negotiations of importance with the Indians, with whose languages 
he was well acquainted. He was also chief inn-holder of Hartford, 



20 DESCENDANTS OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

and in his house the General Court usually met when they did not 
sit at the meetinghouse. 

He was a man of large wealth for the day and acquired extensive 
tracts of land in different settlements, some by government grant for 
important service rendered, which lands he subsequently divided 
among his children. 

Remarried (i) Mary, daughter of Elder John White, and (2) Mary, 
daughter of Hugh Welles, brother of Gov. Thomas Welles, and one 
of the founders of Hartford. 

Samuel ^ Gilbert was the son of the second wife, Mary Welles, a 
woman remarkable for her prudence and energy. 

Jonathan' Gilbert died Dec. 10, 1682, aged 64, and his second 
wife, Mary Welles, died July 3, 1700, aged 74. They lie side by 
side in the ancient burial place in the rear of the Center Church in 
Hartford. 

" Thomas and Hugh Welles were sons of Thomas Welles, a 
zealous Puritan and wealthy merchant of London, of the Welles 
family of the County of Essex. Incurring the suspicion of the 
Commissioners, he escaped to this country when about 60 years old 
and was soon followed by a numerous family of sons." (Reg. vol. 

iv, p. 343-) 

Samuel^ Gilbert, grandfather of Sarahs Gilbert, was born in Hart- 
ford about 1663. He was married Oct. 2, 1685, to Mary Rogers, 
daughter of Samuel and Mary (Stanton) Rogers of New London, 
Ct. Samuel Rogers was born in Stratford, Ct., 1640, son of James 
and Elizabeth (Rowland) Rogers of Stratford, Milford and New 
London, Ct. Mary Stanton was daughter of Thomas and Mary 
(Lord) Stanton, her mother being a daughter of Thomas and Ann 

( ) Lord of Hartford. (Rogers Gen.; Goodwin's Notes; 

Hist. New London, and Memo. Hist, of Hartford.) 

Samuel^ Gilbert lived in Hartford until 1707, when he removed to 
Colchester, Ct., where he lived until about 1824, when he again 
removed to Lyme, Ct., where he died Aug. 5, 1733, ae 70. (T. S.) 
Mary Rogers, his wife, died Sept. 30, 1756, in 91st year. This part 
of Lyme is now in the town of Salem, not far from the Colchester 
line. 

Samuel ^ Gilbert was commissioned Ensign of the Train Band in 
Hartford by the General Court in 1798, and was confirmed captain 
of the Train Band in Colchester in May, 1707. In 171 1 Capt. 



THIRD GENERATION. 21 

Samuel Gilbert was in command of a company in an expedition 
against Canada. (Col. Records of Conn., p. 358.) 

No will or settlement of the estate of Samuel ■^ Gilbert has been 
found, and it has been conjectured that these papers may have been 
among the records of the New London probate office which were so 
largely destroyed by the British during the Revolutionary war. 
Deeds of gift to his sons, made at various times during his lifetime, 
are, however, on record. 

Samuel3 Gilbert (Samuel,^ Jonathan') father of Sarah* (Gilbert) 
Carter, was born in Hartford Feb. 5, 1687/8. He married, (date 
unknown; marriage proved by deed of land and Hist, of Hadley), 
Mercy* Warner, born at Deerfield, Mass., Sept. 25, 1785, daughter 
of Isaacs and Sarah (Boltwood) Warner. Isaac 3 Warner was the 
son of Andrew^ Warner of Cambridge, Mass., Hartford, Ct., and 
Hadley, Mass., who died Dec. iS, 1684. His first wife is unknown, 
but he m. (2) Esther, (d. 1693), widow of Thomas Selden of 
Hartford. Andrew^ Warner was son of John' Warner of Hatfield, 
Gloucester, Eng. Isaacs Warner, born about 1645, died in 
Deerfield, Mass., 1 690/1 j married May 31, 1666, Sarah, daughter 

of Robert and Mary ( ) Boltwood. Robert Boltwood was 

from Essex County, Eng.; in Connecticut, 1748; lived in part of 
Wethersfield now included in Glastonbury ; removed to Hadley, 
Mass., where he died April 6, 1684. His wife, Mary Warner, died 
May 14, 1687. (Warner Gen.; Hist, of Hadley; Memo. Hist, of 
Hartford.) 

Samuels Gilbert died May i, 1760, and is buried in the Gilead, 
Ct., cemetery, as is also his wife, Mercy Warner, who died Oct. 31, 
1759. It is supposed by some that after his marriage he lived for 
some time in Colchester, and it has been stated, on what original 
authority the writer does not know, that some of his children were 
born there, particularly his son, Samuel,* whose birth is given as at 
Colchester, Oct. 16, 171 1. But no such entry is to be found on the 
town records of Colchester. 

The following entries are, however, found in the ancient records 
of Lebanon, Ct., and seem to prove that at this time at least, he 
was living within the limits of that town, and that the son Samuel 
was born there in 1 7 1 2 : 

"Abilena Gilbert Daughter of Sam" & Mercy Gilbert was Born 
March the loth A. D. 17 10. 



22 DESCENDANTS OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

Sarah Gilbert was Born March the loth 1710. 
• Samuel Gilbert was born May the first A. D. 1712." 

Another son, John, was baptized there Nov. 21, 17 13/14, also 
Elisha, Feb. 16, 17 16/17, although he is said to have been born in 
Hebron. The towns adjoined. About this time the family seems 
to have removed to Hebron, as the other children are said to have 
all been born there, probably in Gilead parish, where the family of 
Thomas 3 Carter resided. 

The other children of Samuel 3 and Mercy (Warner) Gilbert are : 
Mary, b. 1719; Hannah, b. 1722; Ezra, b. 1726; Mercy, b. 1728; 
Ebenezer, b. 1732. 

The will of Samuel 3 Gilbert is found at Colchester, and in it he 
names his five sons as above, but merely refers to his " five 
daughters," not mentioning any of them by name. 

The names of the daughters as given above, and their husbands, 
are all found, however, in the will of their brother, Lieut. John 
Gilbert, which is on record at Andover, Ct. Lieut. John Gilbert 
died Jan. 19, 1794, in " 8oth year," and is buried with his wife, 
Abigail 4 Carter, (5), in Gilead cemetery. 

Much interesting information concerning the Gilbert family may 
be found in the New Eng. Hist, and Gen. Reg., vol. iv, p. 229 et 
seq., and p. 339 et seq., and in a pamphlet published in 1902, 
entitled : " One of the Gilberts of New England, A Descendant of 
Jonathan Gilbert of Hartford, Ct." See also Champion Gen. 

Sarah Gilbert Carter died in Warren in 1796, and her tombstone 

is found in the cemetery there. The inscription reads : 

In memory of 

Mrs Sarah Cart 

er wife of Tho 

mas Carter who 

Departed this life

THIRD GENERATION. 2$ 

After a residence of some 25 or more years in Hebron, Thomas 
Carter, with nearly all his numerous family, some of them already 
married, together with several related families from Hebron and 
vicinity, migrated soon after 1750 to what was then the northeastern 
part of the town of Kent, in Litchfield county, and took up a large 
part of what later became the town of Warren. Rough, wild and 
mountainous much of it is now and always has been, and to these 
early pioneers it must have presented difficulties which only stout 
hearts and strong arms could overcome. But it is doubtless to these 
very obstacles which faced these and other pioneers of New England 
towns, that the world is indebted for those splendid specimens of 
manhood and sturdy character which is typified by the stern and 
rugged aspect of the lands which they subdued, and in many cases 
made to " blossom as the rose." 

There is a tradition that one of the early Carters came first to 
Warren, then practically a wilderness without paths or roads, and 
selected a spot for a clearing. He then returned to Hebron and 
came back with the family, but so wild was the country that for 
some time they were unable to find the site which had been 
selected. The Carters settled in the north part of the town and 
never lived to any extent in the southern part, and there was always 
considerable rivalry between the north and the south. When the 
church was built each section tried to see which could bring the 
biggest corner stone. It is said that the " south " won in the 
contest. 

The church of the " Society of East Greenwich (now Warren) in 
the town of Kent" was formally organized Sept. 22, 1756, and as 
the name of Thomas Carter is first on the list of those who " owned 
the Covenant " on that occasion, it is believed that a copy of that 
first covenant will be of interest to many, and it is given herewith : 

" We whose Names are underwritten being united in the Belief of 
the Christian Religion as taught in the Holy Scriptures, an excellent 
summary whereof is contained in the Westminster Shorter Chate- 
chism, And being united in Love and Charity towards one another, 
Do now give up ourselves to God through Jesus Christ to be forever 
the Lord's, to love him and walk in his ways, keep his Command- 
ments, seeking his glory . And do mutually covenant and 

engage from this day and forward untill regularly dismissed, to live 



24 DESCENDANTS OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

together as a Church of Christ according to the rules of the Gospel, 

to attend publick worship and sealing ordinances together, to walk 

in the same faith, to maintain brotherly love, to be in subjection to 

the Government and Discipline Christ has established in his Church. 

In the Presence of God the Searcher of hearts we do now make 

this covenant, hoping in his mercy thro Jesus Christ to keep it in

He removed to Warren (Kent) apparently about the same time as 
the other members of his family, and resided there until his death in 
1774. The following entry, found among the town records of 
Warren, was not clearly understood by the writer until a poem loaned 
by Miss Jerusha S.7 Carter of Phelps, N. Y., (1898), made it evident 
that six members of this family of fourteen (including children and

grandchildren) were swept away by an outbreak of fever or some 
epidemic at that time. The record is as follows : " Departed this 
life in the year 1774, viz. — Benjamin Carter, July 29th sone to 
Thomas Carter then seignor, Thomas Carter Junior Died August 21 
AD 1774. Thomas Carter Seignor & Adoniram Carter's Infant 
child Died August 28th 1774. Adoniram Carter Died Sept. 5, AD 
1774. Sarah Carter Died the nth September 1774 wife to Thomas 
Carter Seignor." 

The poem, which is exceedingly quaint and interesting, certainly 
from a genealogical point of view, and as illustrating the spirit of 
the age, was written by Joel Finney and was apparently dedicated to 
Cloa Barnum, widow of Adoniram s Carter, who with their only 
child, " scarce six weeks old," was among the victims of this terrible 
visitation. Or he may have had in mind Anna (Hopkins) Carter, 
widow of ThomasS Carter (17). The "Poem" consists of thirty 
stanzas of four lines each, some of which are reproduced below : 

A Poem. 

Composed on the Sickness and Deaths, which happened in the Family of 
THOMAS CARTER, in Kent, in the Summer, A. D. 1774. 

I. 

To strains of woe, I tune the mournful lyre, 
While dying numbers groan across the wire ; 
In deepest sable hung, my viol plays 
Sad notes of grief in undissembling lays. 

II. 

Urania's bold assistance I must crave, 
While I view death and the dark silent grave, 
And try to paint a grievous tragic scene, 
Which in the town of Kent has lately been. 

III. 

In seventeen hundred seventy-four, we see, 
A raging sickness seiz'd the family 
Of Thomas Carter, as you now shall hear, 
Which filled the place with dread and awful fear. 

IV. 

The fever rag'd to that extremity. 
Of fourteen persons six, we see, must die, 
And change this life for that which is to come, 
Their earthly ones for their eternal home. 



FOURTH GENERATION. 

V. 

Muse, view the house amidst this awful gloom, 
See spirits take their flight to hear their doom, 
While every corner's filled with dolorous moans, 
And doleful shrieks mingle with dying groans. 

VI. 

The aged parents both resign their breath, 
Embraced in the icy arms of death, 
With their three eldest sons in youthful bloom. 
Take up their lodgings in the narrow tomb. 

VII. 

With one grandchild an infant daughter dear. 
Must leave this world before her judge t' appear. 
Scarce six weeks old, by this we plainly see. 
From death's arrest no age nor rank is free. 

VIII. 

The eldest of these sons, a widow left 
With two small children fatherless bereft ; 
Methinks I see her with her children stand 
Lamenting sore with one in either hand. 

IX. 

Where can I go, she cries, to find redress 
Or comfort in my present sharp distress ; 
The answer's plain you sure must go to God, 
Submit to him and own his righteous rod. 

X. 

Behold the widow of the second son, 

Husband and child her earthly all is gone. 

Thus by herself she stands, o'erwhelm'd with grief, 

And thinks her case admits of no relief. 

XVI. 

Now the third son, although he had no wife 
To mourn his early exit from this life 
Yet there is one who was betroth'd to him, 
Whose parting seems like tearing limb from Hmb. 

XIX. 

I crave the leave to make a short address, 
To those four brothers who are fatherless; 
Your parents both are took away by death, 
When God commands, we must resign our breath.

XXV. 

This in particular I dedicate, 

To the fair lady thus bereav'd of late, 

At whose request these lines were first composed, 

An now, at length to public view disclosed. 

XXVII. 

I credibly have been informed of late. 
You have reenter'd on a married state ; 
I hope that you a happy life may lead, 
And be in bands of wedlock blest indeed. 

By comparing the references in the above lines with the records 
of the family below, the facts are made clear. 

Nov. 19, 1774, Heman Swift Esq. of Cornwall was appointed 
administrator on estate of Thomas Carter Jr. "late of Kent;" 
Joseph Carter, administrator on estate of Thomas Carter Jr., " late 
of sd Kent," and Ebenezer Man of Kent on estate of Adoniram 
Carter "late of Cornwall." Jan. 16, 1775, inventories of the estates 
of Thomas Carter, Thomas Carter Jr., and Adoniram Carter were 
presented, the two former " of Kent," Adoniram " of Cornwall." 
Also an allowance was made to " the widows & children of said 
Thomas Carter & Thomas Carter Jr.," and to the "widow & children 
of Adoniram Carter." 

July 12, 1775, among the creditors of estate of "Thomas Carter 
of Kent," are Dr. Ebenezer Man, Dr. John Chamberlain of Amenia, 
(N. Y.,) Dr. Oliver Fuller of Kent, Dr. Joseph Perry of Woodbury, 
Dr. Seth Bird of Litchfield. 

Other creditors were Bateman Wells and Phebe Carter of Hebron, 
(probably daughter of Lieut. Benjamin'f Carter of Hebron), Thomas 
Russell of Cornwall, Abel Comstock, John Bliss Jr., Moses Case, 
Benoni Carter, Ward Eldred of Cornwall, and Daniel Lee of Kent. 

Sept. 21, 1775, in the distribution of the widow's right, "Widow 
Anna Carter of sd Kent Relict of Thomas Carter Jun"^ aforesaid, a 
piece of land in Cornwall bordering Housatonic River, 8 acres 
near land of John Millard and Samuel Sawyer."

Reading, Mass., 1717; d. Hebron, (Gilead), Ct., " in 78th year of 
her age," Aug. 15, 1796 (T. S.) ; m. Hebron, Nov. 11, 1736, Lieut. 
John4 Gilbert, bapt. Lebanon, Ct., Nov. 21, 1713/14, d. Hebron, 
(Gilead), Jan. 19, 1794, ae 80, son of Samuel 3 and Mercy (Warner) 
Gilbert, and great-grandson of Jonathan' Gilbert of Hartford. 

His will, drawn Jan. 17, 1793, proved Feb. 6, 1794, is on record 
at Andover, Ct., and it is an interesting fact that from his will are 
supplied the names of his five sisters, (one of whom was Sarah, 
second wife of Thomas 3 Carter), and their husbands, the father, 
Samuels Gilbert, in his will merely referring to his " five daughters." 

He was known as " Lieut." John Gilbert, and in his will mentions 
no children but leaves a large estate to various relatives, including 
his wife, Abigail, and his " five sisters," Sarah Carter, Mary Dart, 
Abileana Saxton (deceased), Mary Curtis (deceased), Hannah Mann 
(deceased). 

He lived in Gilead parish, Hebron, to which society he bequeathed 
in his will " The sum of two hundred pounds to be paid at the end 
of one year after my decease to be appropriated to the support of 
a regular Gospel Minister who shall be settled and ordained in and 
over said Parish and the same shall be continued as a pepetual fund 
and the interest thereof annually paid into the treasury of said 
Society and by the Committee of said Society for the time being 
applied in part payment of the Salary of said minister which shall 
be due." 

6. Elizabeth 4 Carter {Thomas,'^ Thomas,^ Rev. Thomas^) 
b. Weston, Mass., March 15, 1717/20; m. Hebron, Ct., Feb. 27, 
1745/46, William Swetland, (probably) son of John and Sarah 
(Davis) Swetland. 

In her father's will, dated 1768, he speaks of Elizabeth as 
" deceased," and in the probate records at Litchfield, Ct., vol. iii, 
p. 154, dated Nov. 14, 1773, the residue of the estate of "Darius 
Sweatland " is ordered paid to "William Svveatland, the natural 



32 DESCENDANTS OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

Father and only Heir of said Darius." Hence Elizabeth (Carter) 
Swetland must have died previous to 1768, and at this time evidently, 
no other child was living. The Swetlands apparently came to 
Warren with the Carters. 
Children (Swetland) :

Hebron, Nov. 30, 1763, in 44th year of her age, (T. S.), dau. of 
Edward and EHzabeth (Mack) Sawyer. 

He was an ofificer in the French and Indian war, being ist Lieut, 
in the Twelfth Co., ist Regiment, Campaign of 1759. In 1760 he 
was appointed ist Lieut, of the 8th Co., 2d Regiment. 

In the old cemetery near Hebron Center the writer found (1907) 
the gravestone of Phebe, wife of Lieut. Benjamin Carter, but no 
stone of her husband or any child. Mrs. Carter's headstone is a 
fine one, and there was also a footstone.

(Dunham) Curtis. Her brother. Major Eleazer Curtis 3d, m. 
Mercy Carter (13), and a sister, Mary Curtis, m. John Carter (12). 

Ruth (Curtis) Carter is buried in the Warren cemetery and her 
husband is buried near her, but his grave is not marked by a stone. 

Capt. Joseph Carter was a man of much prominence in the affairs 
of the town, was chosen first selectman when Warren was set off 
from Kent in 1786, and repeatedly was elected to offices of trust 
and responsibiUty. 

In the French and Indian war he served as private in Capt. 
Samuel Dunham's Co. in the Alarm to relieve Fort William Henry 
in Aug., 1757. He was appointed by the General Court in 1767, 
Ensign of the 2d Company, or Train Band, in the town of Kent ; 
Lieutenant of the same in 1770, and Captain in 1772. He was 
Captain in the 13th Reg. of Militia at New York in 1774, and 
marched with the same company, in which two of his brothers were 
also officers, for the relief of Danbury in 1777. He was also 
Captain in the 13th Reg., Sept., 1779, at Peekskill. (Conn. 
Colonial Records; Rev. Rolls and Lists, and Conn. Hist. Society 
Collections, vol. ix.) 

He was representative from Kent in 1777, 1778, and 1779. He 
resided, at least in his later years, on what is known as " Above All " 
in Warren, and was hving with his father or near him at the time of 
the latter's death in 1772. 

The late Martin Strong of Warren (b. 1809) remembered Capt. 
Carter well and described him to the writer as of moderate height,

rather thick set and with the "Carter Look," of quiet temperament 
and one greatly respected in the community. 

He was present at the dedication of the present Warren church 
in 1820, as was his brother, Lieut. Samuel Carter (11), the former 
then being 88 and the latter 86 years of age.

Mr. Finney began the study of law in 181 8, but having become 
converted in 1821, studied theology and was Hcensed to preach by 
the Presbyterian church in 1824. He labored as an evangelist with 
great success in various cities, and in 1832 the Chatham street 
theatre in New York was bought for him, and the " Evangelist " 
established as an advocate of the revival. In 1834 he became 
pastor of the Broadway Tabernacle, which had been built especially 
for him. In 1835 Mr. Finney accepted the professorship of 
theology at Oberlin, which had just been founded by his friends, 
and from 1851 to i866 he was president of that institution. Besides 
acting much of the time as pastor of the Congregational church in 
Oberlin, he frequently preached in New York and other places, and 
also spent three years in England as a revivahst. In his revival work 
he relied mainly on doctrinal preaching as opposed to animal excite- 
ment, and his sermons are plain, logical and direct. He is generally 
regarded as one of the greatest revivalists that America has produced.

John Carter Hved apparently on or near the Cornwall line, as did 
several other members of the family. Probably his legal residence 
was Cornwall, as is indicated by the following records : " Feb., 
1778, John Carter, Elijah Hopkins and Reuben Fox, all of Cornwall 
are annexed to the society of East Greenwich in Kent." 

He served in the Revolutionary war, enlisting from Cornwall, as 
did also two of his sons, John and Jirah. He was also Corporal in 
the 4th Co., (Capt. Whiting) 2d Regt., French and Indian war, 
campaign of 1762, and had probably served previously as private in 
a company raised in Hebron, Ct. (See Conn. Hist. Soc. Collections,

Henry in 1757. He was a representative several times to the 
General Court and in 1788 was a member of the convention that 
ratified the Constitution of the United States at Hartford. He was 
appointed Ensign of the 2d Company or Train Band of Kent, 1770; 
Lieutenant of same, 1772 ; Capt. of the 7th Co., 4th Regt., 1775 ; 
and Major of one of the six battalions which were raised by the 
state in 1778. 

Major Curtis was in the battle at Danbury, and caught General 
Wooster as he fell from his horse in that battle. He was also 
present at the surrender of Burgoyne in 1777, an interesting account 
of which he gives in a journal kept by him and still preserved by a 
descendant, Wallace K. Curtiss, residing (1909) in Torrington, Ct.

probably one of the earliest settlers of that part of Kent which later

Abel Comstock was one of the first deacons in the Warren 
church. Benoni Carter lived a little north of the church in 
Warren, nearly opposite the cemetery. He owned a large amount 
of real estate, and was interested in several manufacturing enter- 
prises in Warren. In company with Rev. Peter Starr and Capt. Justus 
Sackett, he built the first grist mill there. About 1794 he sold his 
property in Warren and removed to Salisbury, Ct., where he resided 
in what is known as the " Weatogue " district, his home being near

bought land in Norfolk, Ct., which he deeded to his sons 
Adoniram and Seth. He was on the committee which built the 
Congregational church in Salisbury, 1799, for which services the 
town passed a vote of thanks Jan. 13, 1800, 

Benoni Carter was sergeant in the company commanded by his

Mrs. Luna (Carter) Roberts (233) lived at Tully, N. Y., with her 
great-uncle, Rufus Carter (21), from the age of 8 years to 18 years. 
She went to live with him on account of the death of his youngest 
daughter. She lived with him from about 1813 to 1823. His 
children were all older than Mrs. Roberts. She recollected that 
several other Carters lived near her uncle, but did not recall their 
names. Miss Jane E. Carter (68-xii) lived when a child in 
" Markham Hollow," (now Fabius) N. Y., and Rufus Carter, then an 
old man, lived near. Had no family but a wife. Philip and 
Adonijah Carter, his sons, her father's cousins, were also near. 
" Phihp had quite a family ; one son, Sylvester, lived in Syracuse, 
and his son John was long in business there." 

The compiler has been unable to find further trace of this family.

Fuller, b. Warren, Feb. 17, 1778, d. Ravenna, O., 1854, dau. of 
Howard and Sarah (Bennett) Fuller. 

He was a farmer. Res. Kent, Ct., afterwards in Monkton, Vt. ; 
the farm there yet belongs to others of the name (1898). Returned 
to Kent; removed to Johnson, Trumbull Co., O., in 1804, and to 
Ravenna, O., in 1806. He was a zealous Free Mason. 

Mrs. Charlotte C. Chafifee, daughter of Howard Carter, (91) 
contributes the following : " After Erastus Carter was married to 
Lois Fuller and their three oldest children were born, Howard, 
Ruthalia, and Lois, he became very tired of working on his New 
England farm and decided, with five other young men, to see what 
Ohio was Hke. So they shouldered their knapsacks and started. 
This was in 1803. One turned back, one reached Canfield, Ohio, 
and there earned enough money to take him home ; but only 
Erastus Carter went through to their destination. Returning to 
Connecticut, he disposed of his farm and prepared to move his 
family. Several others were of the company, as well as his father- 
in-law, Howard Fuller, and his wife. There was a general meeting 
of the neighborhood to see them off. The parson came, prayers 
were offered, farewells spoken and tears shed. No one ever 
expected to see them again. Their route was through Newburg, 
N. Y., Harrisburg, and Pittsburg, Pa., traveling slowly in emigrant 
wagons drawn by horses and ox teams. Part of the way a path had 
to be cut through, and burnt trees marked their course many times. 
They stayed for a short time in Johnson, Trumbull Co., then moved 
to Ravenna, O., where nearly all of them spent the rest of their 
lives. The first year they raised one acre of wheat and threshed it 
by tramping the ground with their feet and beating the grain with a 
flail. Many were the perils they endured and terrible the fear of 
the Indians during the war of 181 2. Erastus Carter's cousin, 
Lorenzo Carter, was the first white settler in Cleveland, Ohio. All 
the boys except Miles settled on farms which their father gave them, 
and lived on them until they died."

Jemima (Carter) Bates, the mother of Desire Bates, came from 
a branch of the Carter family sometimes called the " Killingworth 
(Ct.) Carters," said to be descended from Robert Carter, a ship- 
builder who came from Bristol, Eng., about 1700 to Guilford or 
Killingworth, Ct. He is said to have had children, John, Benjamin, 
Samuel, Joseph, William, Mary and Nathaniel, — the youngest, and 
the only one born in Connecticut, so far as the records of Guilford 
and Killingworth show. Nathaniel, born in Killingworth April 27, 
17 17, married there Nov. 8, 1739, Sarah Bennett, to whom were 
born in KiUingworth, Jemima, (May 2, 1742), Mary, Nathan, Sarah, 
Elizabeth and Nathaniel. In the spring of 1759 Nathaniel Carter 
bought land in the town of Cornwall, Ct., not far from the Warren 
line, where he lived until the spring of 1763, when he again removed 
with some other families to a new settlement in what is now Pike 
County, Pa., taking with him three or more children. Jemima had 
recently married Isaac Bates and was not of the party, and it is 
supposed that Nathan also remained behind. Mary died 1759. 

In the autumn of the same or following year, the entire family 
excepting Sarah, Elizabeth and Nathaniel, were massacred by 
Indians. The two girls were later ransomed and returned to their 
friends in Cornwall, but the boy, Nathaniel, in some way got into 
the Cherokee Nation, where he married and had several children, 
one of whom, David, later by a strange coincidence attended the 
famous mission school at Cornwall, Ct., his father's old home. He 
there met his relatives, but would not remain after finishing his 
course at the school. He returned to his home and became Chief 
Justice of the Cherokee Nation, Delegate to Congress, and died at 
Talequah, I. T., Jan, 6, 1867, leaving a family of eleven children. 

Five of his sons served in the Confederate army, two as officers. 
Richard organized and was elected Captain of an independent 
company for the Confederate forces in May, 1861, in which position 
he remained until the close of the war in 1865. Benjamin W. was 
made Captain of a company, ist Cherokee Regt., in 1863, which 
position he held until the close of the war. All of the children

attained honorable positions in life and their descendants are 
widely scattered. Hon. Charles David Carter, now (1909) a repre- 
sentative in Congress from Oklahoma, is a great-grandson of 
Nathaniel Carter, who was captured by the Indians. 

The daughter, Elizabeth, married Benjamin Oviatt of Goshen, Ct., 
and became the mother of a large family, many of whom and their 
descendants have been of much prominence both in Connecticut 
and in the West. Theodore G. Carter Esq., for many years 
connected with the Chicago and Northwestern R. R., is a descendant 
of the son Nathan.

about 1766, d. Cleveland, Oct. 19, 1827, ae 61 years (T. S.), dau.

Major Lorenzo Carter stands out as a conspicuous character 
among the early settlers of what afterward became the city of 
Cleveland. Coming from Rutland, Vt., in the spring of 1797, the 
year after the town was laid out, he built a large log cabin near the 
mouth of the Cuyahoga river, in which he at once began to entertain 
travelers and others, and also kept in connection with the tavern a 
stock of goods for general trade, thus becoming the first landlord 
and the first merchant in Cayahoga county after its settlement by 
the whites. Mr, Carter was an extremely active, enterprising man, 
and gained a wonderful influence over the Indians, who were 
constant neighbors and frequent visitors. He was a tall, strong man 
and well knew when and how to use his strength to the best 
advantage. The Indians feared him more than any other settler, 
(it is said even more than his Satanic majesty himself ! ) Carter's 
commanding figure and prodigious strength, coupled with a 
remarkable audacity and fearlessness of spirit, giving the aboriginees 
abundant reason for this. His influence over the Indians was so 
great that he was always called upon to settle disputes between the 
whites and the Indians, and frequently between the Indians them- 
selves. In fact, to such an extent was Major Carter the 
governmental head of the newly-organized settlement, that for a 
period it has been said that there was no law in Cleveland but Major 
Carter, and he probably did as much to make the settlement of 
Cleveland a permanent success as any one of the first settlers. In 
1804 he was elected captain of the local militia company and a 
little later he was chosen major of the regiment, thus receiving the 
title by which he was known the remainder of his life. He was 
prosperous in business and acquired extensive holdings of land in 
what are now the limits of Cleveland, some of which is still (1909) 
said to be in the possession of his descendants.

60 DESCENDANTS OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

In spite of the peculiar disadvantages of his earlier years, and the 
hardships and privations of pioneer life which he encountered, 
Maj. Carter was a man of much culture and was more of a student 
than would be supposed. Among other things, his choice of reading 
matter, as is shown by the records of Cleveland Library, is proof of 
this. 

The first school in Cleveland " Village " was kept in his house 
1802, by Miss Anne Spafford.

"He had a son, at the time 5 or 6 years old, of whom the 
Indians were very fond and whom they always petted. One day the 
boy was missing and the river was dragged, but no trace of him was 
ever found. His father always believed that he was stolen by the 
Indians." (Mrs. W. M. Beauchamp — 302).

" I knew Mr. Mansfield well. He was a jovial, large-hearted man, 
full to overflowing with capital stories and jokes — the very incarnation 
of good nature and good fellowship. He left his large property to 
his wife, and she in turn to their two adopted daughters and to the 
sisters of Mr. Mansfield."

Ct., dau. of Samuel and (Wheaton) Linsley. (Samuel 

Linsley was b. in Westfield, Mass. Lived later in Branford.) 

Sally (Linsley) Carter was a lady of fine education, and for some 
years taught a private school in Branford, Ct. 

Rev. W. K. Douglass, a grandson, writes that his grandfather's 
name was "Thomas P. Carter, born in Cornwall, Ct." (See under 

17.) 

Thomas P. Carter was one of the few members of this branch of 
the Carter family who seem to have followed the sea. He is said to 
have been engaged in this life for more than 40 years, part of the 
time a sea captain. Probably he found his way to Branford and the 
sea because of the fact that his mother's second husband, Noah 
Harrison of Cornwall, Ct., was from Branford and undoubtedly had 
relatives there, with whom this stepson visited.

•Emma, one son Munson. He lived for many years 
on farm across the highway from his father. In

C. B. Colman (260) writes: "The first time I ever saw 
Adonijah Carter was in the early summer of 1848. He passed my 
cabin or place of residence in the woods of Sheboygan County, 
Wis., with his family and personal property as follows: About 25 
cows with about the same number of calves, yearlings and two-year- 
olds ; 3 double wagons with white sails so as to be comfortable for 
living, two of the wagons drawn by oxen, the third by a good pair 
of horses, — all facing eastward and bound for Sheboygan, a town 
about 20 miles east of my place, where he intended to buy a home 
near the city and establish a milk route there. In less than two 
months I learned that Mr. Carter had left Sheboygan and returned 
straight back to Plymouth, where he purchased a half section of 
land and made a good farm for himself. Himself and his wife now 
sleep in the graveyard of that city. On the occasion above referred 
to 1 had but a short talk with Mr. Carter, and did not then learn 
that he was a relative of my mother, nor did I then see his oldest 
daughter, Emma, whom I afterward married in Plymouth, and 
brought home to my farm in Greenbush to be my companion and 
helper until about two years later, when a fatal fever overtook her 
and carried her to the better land."

Mr. Carter removed from Warren with his father's family in 181 1 
and settled in the western part of New York state, on the so-called 
"Holland Purchase." In 1820 he took a contract of the Holland 
Land Company for a tract of land in Ellicottville, Cattaraugus Co., 
upon which land he moved in 1821. He cleared his farm and 
taught school, remaining on the place until 1836, when he removed 
to Ogden, Lenawee Co., Mich. At one time he owned 1600 acres 
of land in Michigan. At the time of his death he owned 640 acres 
in Ogden. He was a man of unblemished character, and amassed 
a large fortune through economy, prudence and integrity.

and her own family. I remember her being at my father's just 
before starting and he gave her several fine ears of corn for seed of 
his own raising, and the corn from that seed was known for miles 
around in Iowa as " Uncle Howard's corn." The winter of 1856-57 
was very severe and Corinthia, from some exposure, suddenly died, 
probably from pneumonia. The ground was so frozen that it took four

Mr. Carter had been a resident of Morgan Co., 111., since 1834, 
making the trip overland from Warren, Ct., in that year. He was a 
man of unostentatious manner but a keen observer of nature, and 
in his early life was an extensive dealer in horses and cattle. He 
had the New England pioneer spirit that under adverse circumstances 
was able to win success, and out of the undeveloped West he 
wrought and worked, his efforts being rewarded until he became one 
of the men of means of his time.

SIXTH GENERATION. 97 

His interests were varied, and during his business career he was 
engaged not only in farming and stock raising, but at one time 
controlled a large flour mill, also a saw mill, and after moving from 
Waverly to Jacksonville was engaged in the manufacture of brick. 
He was at one time also a member of the firm of Starr & Carter in 
the conduct of a general store. 

During the Mexican war Mr. Carter was employed by the govern- 
ment and was persuaded by the army officials to go to Carmago, 
Mexico, where he had charge of the forage arrangements and the 
army horses and mules, his experience as a horseman making his 
services of great value. Mr. Carter was a member of Westminister 
Presbyterian church and possessed a strong and abiding Christian 
faith. Although a man of such varied and long-continued activity, 
he never sough' the lime light or honors at the hands of his fellows, 
but contented himself with attention to the details of his private 
business and the duties of citizenship. 

Mr. Carter was one of a family of twelve children, nine of whom 
lived to be over 63, and at the time of his death he was survived by 
three brothers aged 92, 91 and 78 years respectively. After reaching 
the age of 95 Mr. Carter drove his own horse and cared for him, 
and was as active as many men of 70. In his 98th year he was still 
in remarkably good health, and aside from a slight deafness was in 
full possession of his faculties. He was a man whose life showed 
the effects of good habits, sterling integrity and courteous conduct 
towaids all men. (Extract from Jacksonville Journal.)

Mr. Carter, like many of the family, was a fine musician and in 
his day was the most noted teacher of singing schools in Litchfield 
County, Ct. 

"The love of his life was music. He taught in a number of 
different towns the old-fashioned Singing School, and did it far more 
than ordinarily well. Until within a few years, there were living 
pupils of his who testified of his ability and thoroughness as a 
teacher. His quaint old organ, a small pipe organ, is still (1898) in 
existence, and to the last of his life he played on it. Both his 
daughters inherited his musical talent in a marked degree. The 
younger, Isabella Minerva (Pope), was a singer with an exceptional

voice. There was a quality of tone in her voice that moved and 
held those who heard her. By one critic her voice was even com- 
pared favorably with that of Jennie Lind." It is interesting to note 
that a granddaughter of Mrs. Pope has developed unusual musical 
ability at a comparatively early age.

Dr. Abel Carter Benedict was one of the most prominent surgeons 
of Syracuse. Though skilled in other branches of his profession he 
made surgery a specialty, his experience in army life being of great 
value to him in this line. He was a graduate of the Yale Medical 
School, i860, and on the breaking out of the rebellion was commis- 
sioned assistant surgeon of the ist N. Y. Vols. He continued in this 
office until 1863, when he was commissioned by Pres. Lincoln assistant 
surgeon of U. S. Vols., and later promoted to be surgeon of the same.

was mustered out of service in Dec, 1865. In the late years of the 
war he was on the staff of General Devlin, 24th Corps, and of 
General Turner, Tenth Corps. After the close of the war he settled 
in Waverly, 111., where he remained until 1875, when he moved to 
Syracuse. He was a member of the N. Y. State Med. Society;

The flying frenchmen, Dieudonne 
Costes and Joseph Lebrix, came 
home this evening from their air 
Odyssey over 35,000 miles of land 
and sea^— over Africa, the two 
Americas, Asia, Europe and a wide 
expanse of the South Atlantic. 

Speeding to Paris in six days 
from far away Tokyo, on the other 
side of the earth, they brought 
their biplane down upon the green 
field of Le Bourget just before 
dusk — the noise of their motor 
drowned by the sound of 1,000 
Gallic "braves" and "vivas."

Pratt writes : " Only illness has prevented me 
writing in regard to the death of dear Miss Carter. 
It was a great shock to us. We can all remember 
her as having the largest hearted faith, shown by 
works, in the young Indians. We can all recall 
where, when our own confidence in what we 
thought a bad Indian was terrible shaken, she, not 
only by her acts, but by her earnings, stood by to 
lift up and help forward. She was one of the 
most important spokes in the Carlisle wheel."

at the carpenter trade, and built a house, still (1897) standing, 
mainly by his own labor, near tlie present site of the Congregational 
church. After the big flouring mill was erected he became a flour 
packer and worked at it for a long time. Later he took up the 
business of making or building a kind of flat boat, called *' arks," 
for the transportation of the flour down the river to Lake Michigan. 
While yet engaged in ark building, he was taken sick and died. Mr. 
Carter was a very industrious, hard-working man, preaching at times 
to the few Baptists in the community, while actively engaged in 
other occupations. He was a shifty, ingenious, industrious Yankee, 
a very useful man in the new country."

In 1 818, when four years of age, Mrs. Conant moved with her 
family from Connecticut to East Penfield, N. Y. 

Cornelius Conant, father of Alvarado, had four brothers and one 
sister: Robert, Jeremiah, Archibald, Daniel and Anna. Of 17 
children (two mothers) Alvarado was the oldest. He was an active 
member of the Congregational church in Fairport, and of him " it 
can be truly said that he lived beloved and died lamented by all 
who knew him." 

The daughter, Mary J. Conant, was for many years a very success- 
ful teacher.

Mr. and Mrs. Williams were very helpful to the compiler of the 
present work, and gave many important clues which he otherwise 
might have failed to get. 

Mr. Williams, as he says, "was raised in the wilds of Michigan. I 
have lived in this county (Branch) sixty-one years this month (1897). 
I was but ten years old when I came here. Then there were more 
Indians than white folks ; more wolves than sheep now ; plenty of 
deer and some bears ; plenty of wild turkeys and other game. I 
well understand the hardships of pioneer life. I have eaten salt and 
potatoes when salt was $12 per barrel and potatoes $2.50 a bushel ; 
flour $8 per hundred pounds ; oats t^.c^o, and 25 cents for sending 
a letter." 

"Although she never had children of her own, Mrs. Williams did 
not lose her mother love from her heart, and many a boy and girl, 
once an inmate of her home, called her "mother" with sincere 



136 DESCENDANTS OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

affection. All helpless things appealed to her humanity. She was a 
model housekeeper and her home was the favorite resort of many 
friends and relatives. A firm friend to the poor, she sensibly advised 
and proved a reliable helper in time of need. There were no com- 
plaints during her long illness, and, like a tired child, sweetly and 
gently she sighed her life away to begin an eternal Happy New Year. 
Covered with blossoms she so well loved, she was laid to rest, but in 
memory and deeds she still lives."

for material self-advancement. With profound 
intellect and the tastes of a scholar, he yet illus- 
trated the real and simple nature of his Christianity 
by his missionary and philanthropic enthusiasm, and 
the true unworldliness with which he forgot himself 
and labored for the welfare of others has ennobled 
and consecrated his name in the hearts and

which received his prolonged toil. In making this 
reverent memorial I venture specially to emphasize 
this great and shining characteristic of unselfishness 
and self-sacrifice, and to add as further distinguish-

Both Dr. and Mrs. Beauchamp have been of much service to the 
compiler in the preparation of this book. Few correspondents have 
been more inteIHgent or interested regarding the history of the 
family. Through their thoughtfulness and painstaking, an exceed- 
ingly interesting record of the pioneer experiences of Mrs. 
Beauchamp's father and grandfather, Howard Carter (gi) and 
Erastus Carter (28), in their Ohio home, has been preserved, being 
carefully taken down from the lips of the pioneers themselves. The 
record would make a volume of considerable size and is well worthy 
of publication. It is to be regretted that the plan of the present 
work did not admit of extended quotations from it.

When but eight years of age Mr. Carter's father died, leaving his

began to work, and he never ceased until sickness compelled him to 
stop. At the age of 16 he " went sailing " on the lakes for the first 
time, and there are men alive now who knew him when an ordinary 
seaman on a ten-tonner. He kept on sailing in various capacities, 
and at the age of 20 he went on the "Forest City" in the capacity 
of clerk. The Detroit Free Press says, in an article published in 
1899: 

" The history of the great Detroit and Cleveland Navigation Co. 
is practically the history of the past forty-eight busy years of David 
Carter's life. All of his energies have been directed toward the

engaged as clerk on the steamer Forest City, the pioneer of the 
D. and C. line, and in that capacity worked for ten years. He then 
became agent for the line at Detroit and has since had exclusive 
control of its interests. Away back in the sixties he had faith in the 
possibilities of the line. The splendid results achieved since show 
that his faith was justified. He has during the past year brought 
every power of mind and body to bear to place the D. & C. line in 
the van as regards the vital essentials of safety, speed and comfort. 
Owing to the hard work of the general manager, the name 
" D. and C." is known wherever boats sail, and it may be truthfully 
said that the name of David Carter, if nailed to the masthead of 
every ship, could be no better known than it is now." 

In 1899 the directors of the Detroit and Cleveland Navigation 
Co., in recognition of Mr. Carter's remarkable services to the 
company for nearly half a century, honored him with the title of 
Commodore and presented him with a regulation Commodore's 
pennant. Mr. Carter was one of the most enthusiastic and loyal 
supporters of the attempt to trace out the family record, and gave 
much aid and encouragement to the compiler of this work.

" Mrs. Calhoun inherited exceptional qualities from a good ances- 
try. Her great-grandfather, Capt. Joseph Carter, commanded a 
company in the Revolutionary war ; her great-grandfather, Timothy i 
Munson, was a Revolutionary soldier ; and earlier ancestors in the I 
same line were ofificers in King George's, King Philip's and the 
Pequot wars. Her pioneer ancestor, Capt. Thomas Munson, repre- 1 
sented New Haven in the Colonial legislatures 27 sessions. Second 
cousins of hers were Dr. Julian Munson Sturtevant and Dr. Edward 
Allan Tanner, both presidents of Illinois College. Mrs. Calhoun 
had a keen, alert and well-informed mind, a genial and animated i 
manner and a bright and winsome countenance. People were I 
attracted to her presence remarkably, and rejoiced in it. She was 
interesting and lovely in the estimation of the young. This aged 
Christian had constant pleasure in the kingdom of God upon earth 
and was a close observer of events pertaining to it. She was an 
eager reader, with an especial inclination to publications touching 
things holy." The Congregationalist, Dec. 15, 1900. 

The compiler would acknowledge special indebtedness both to 
Mrs. Calhoun and to her sister, Mrs. Sarah Carter Sackett (io6-iii), 
for assistance rendered in preparing this work, especially in its early 
stages. He may add also that both ladies were most worthy 
representatives of the family whose name they bore.

LeGrand Carter had just entered upon his 20th year when he 
enlisted at Darien, Wis. He had gone down there from his home 
for the purpose of going to school, but caught the war fever and, 
with some friends and cousins, enlisted in Co. K, 2d Wis. Cavalry. 
He was a non-commissioned officer, and at the time of his death 
was Duty Sergeant. In the spring of 1864 he came home on 
furlough, married as above and was killed within a few weeks after 
his return to the army. He was in command of a scouting party 
sent out to get some horses which had been left by bushwackers at 
a place some 20 miles west of Rolla, Mo. While proceeding with 
a part of the force to find a second bunch of horses he was waylaid 
and, with the four men with him, captured, and according to all the 
evidence the entire party were taken into the woods and murdered 
in cold blood. The bodies of all were recovered, LeGrand's having 
frve balls in it. He was ever faithful in the discharge of every duty 
and a favorite in the company, endeared to all by reason of a

could have been more missed.

Of his son, Charles F., he writes: "With 27 other students he 
enlisted from the Oneonta Normal School for the Spanish war, for 
the cause of suffering humanity, not for conquest, as he wrote in 
his last letter to us from Honolulu. His was a grand life. He lived 
for others, and to do good in the world was the great aim of his life. 
He had not missed a Sabbath school in over 10 years up to the time 
he went into camp. Duty was first with him, never looking for 
excuses. He was never known to utter a falsehood nor an oath. 
The Normal faculty, students, soldier boys and neighbors, all say 
they could speak of him in life as in death. There was nothing in 
life to cover in death. More than 90 letters of tribute to his 
memory were received by his family."

SEVENTH GENERATION. 1 99 

Greene, June 30, 1848, son of Charles and Mardula (Carter) Gray 
(418).

Child (Gray) :

Bartlett Andrews, b. Sunderland, Mass., Nov. 4, 1834, d. Litchfield, 
Ct., Sept. 12, 1902, son of Rev. Erastus Andrews. 

Hon. C. B. Andrews was graduated with high honor at Amherst, 
1858; studied law in Sherman, Ct., and was admitted to the 
Fairfield County bar in i860; entered into partnership with Hon. 
John M. Hubbard, M. C, in 1863; elected to State Senate 1868 
and again in 1869; Representative, 1878; Governor of Connecticut 
1879; Judge of the Superior Court, 1882; Chief Justice Supreme 
Court, 1889; State Referee, 1901. In 1902 Judge Andrews was 
unanimously chosen delegate from Litchfield to the Constitutional 
Cenvention at Hartford, and by practically unanimous agreement 
was made presiding officer of that convention, as Gov. Oliver 
Wolcott of Litchfield had been eighty years before. 

" Judge Andrews has often and fitly been cited as a fine 
illustration for the younger men of what chances there are for those 
who have the sense and ability to improve their opportunities. He 
started as a poor and unknown boy and he reached our highest and 
most honored offices by doing as well as he could what came upon 
him to be done, and by avoiding nothing that did come. His name 
has become a part of the history of the state, and he has had no 
small part in guiding its development and shaping its laws." 

Judge Andrews received the degree of LL. D. from Yale, Amherst 
and Wesleyan Universities.

THIRD GENERATION. 

700. Ezra3 Carter {Thomas,^ Rev. Thomas '') b. Woburn, 
Mass., June 22, 1701 ; d. Marlborough, Ct., July 19, 1774, in 73d 
year of his age (T. S.) ; m. Middletown, Ct., June 24, 1724, Jerusha 
White, b. Middletown, July 27, 1703, d. May 9, 1781, in 77th year 
of her age (T. S.), dau. of Joseph and Mary (Mould) White. 

In the Middletown Land Records Ezra Carter is described as of 
Middletown in October, 1725, and from the fact that he married 
there in 1724, it is probable that he had been a resident for some 
time previously. In an agreement dated as above, 1725, he rented 
from Thomas Miller Jr., for ten years, a home lot, etc., with grist 
mill. Miller agrees to " teach and learn said Carter his art of 
Milling, that is to make and grind meal well & to manage a mill, 
etc." ; and also " to teach said Carter the art of turned wooden 
ware." The rent was to be one-half of the " tole or gains by 
grinding", and in addition. Carter was to clear a lot. This lease was 
made void by the parties to the contract, June 27, 1726, "for 
reasons best known to ourselves." 

Feb. 23, 1 73 1/2, Ezra Carter sells his home lot on the west side 
of the Connecticut river in Middletown, North Society, with house 
and barn, situated near land of Joseph Whitmore deceased. 

Another deed in Middletown, dated Jan. 8, 1724/5, records the 
sale by Thomas Carter, Clothier, of Woburn, Mass., of a lot of land 
in Middletown to Jonathan Yeomans, which land he bought of 
Robert Collins, said land being situated near land of Thomas 
Miller. William Whitmore was a witness to the deed. 



THIRD GENERATION. 257 

Joseph and William VVhitmore were probably own cousins of 
Ezra 3 Carter, being sons of Lieut. P>ancis Whitmore, brother of 
Margaret Whitmore, who married I'horaas^ Carter (2). 

About 1733, Ezra Carter settled apparently in a part of Hebron, 
Ct., which later (1S03) was incorporated in the town of Marl- 
borough, Ct. Marlborough was formed in 1803 from parts of 
Hebron, Colchester and Glastonbury, 

Ezra and Jerusha Carter were among the original members of the 
church in Marlborough parish, and Ezra Carter was one of the 
committee appointed in 1749 to construct a meeting house. It may 
be interesting to note that this building was completed in 1803, — 
54 years after it was begun, — and the laying of the foundation stone 
was the last work to be done on it !

of the most prominent and honored residents of Marlborough, in 
which town he passed practically his entire life. In his later years 
it was customary for his friends and fellow townsmen to celebrate his 
birthday by a social gathering. On the anniversary of his ninetieth 
birthday an unusually large gathering was held and a very interesting 
historical paper was read by Miss Mary Hall of Hartford. 

In this family was preserved from an early day a copy of the 
Carter coat of arms, which is the same as that claimed by the 
so-called "Virginia Carters." It is su])posed to have been handed 
down in the family. (See page 10.)

APPENDIX A. 

Concerning the parentage of Mary, wife of the Rev. Thomas Carter. 



On page 17 it is stated that Mary, wife of the Rev. Thomas 
Carter, was in all probability a daughter of George Parkhurst Sr., of 
Watertown and Boston. Some of the facts leading to that conclu- 
sion are here given more in detail. 

On the Parish Registers of Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, are 
found the following baptisms : — 

Phebe, dau. of George and Phebe Parkhurst, Nov. 29, 161 2. 

Mary, dau. of George Parkhurst, Aug. 28, 1614. 

Samuel, son of George Parkhurst, Feb. 2, 16 16/17. 

Deborah, dau. of George Parkhurst, Aug. i, 16 19. 

George, son of George Parkhurst, June 5, 1621. 

John, son of George Parkhurst, Oct. 19, 1623. 

Abigail, dau. of George Parkhurst, Jan. i, 1625/6. 

Elizabeth, dau. of George Parkhurst, May 18, 1628. 

Joseph, son of George Parkhurst, Dec. 21, 1629. 

In the so-called " Dalton Deed" (Reg. xxvii, p. 364), Ruth, 
widow of the Rev. Timothy Dalton, conveys by deed dated 
March 22, 1663/4 certain property to her "constituted heir," 
Nathaniel Bacheller, he paying her a certain sum down, and agree- 
ing to pay the sums mentioned below to the persons named, after 
her death : 

To Deborah Smith, wife of John, ;^5o 

To Elizabeth Merry, wife of Joseph, ;;{^20 

To Phebe Arnold, wife of Thomas, ^20 

^o Joseph Parkhurst, ;£20 

To George Parkhurst, ;^20 

To Mary Carter, wife of Thomas (Carter of Woburn), ^20 



THE WIFE OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 269 

The identity of the six names in the two lists is striking, but in 
addition to this, at least three of the persons mentioned in the 
Dalton deed are known to be children of George Parkhurst Sr. 

Nathaniel Bacheller, the grantee above, had married Deborah, 
dau. of the above John and Deborah Smith. In 1669 George 
Parkhurst Jr. writes Bacheller concerning the money coming to him 
from " my aunt Dalton," which letter Bacheller endorses as from 
"my uncle, George Parkhurst." 

Joseph Parkhurst also wrote Bacheller about the money coming to 
him from "my mmt Dalton." Hence George, Joseph and Deborah 
must have been children of George Parkhurst Sr. 

As to Ruth Dalton, wife of Rev. Timothy Dalton, from all the 
facts known to the writer it would seem that she was not a sister 
of George ' Parkhurst, but was more likely a sister of his first wife, 
Phebe. No record of the first wife is found in America, though he 
again married, about 1643, Susanna, widow of John Simpson. 

Unfortunately no record of the marriage of Rev. Thomas Carter 
and his wife Mary has been found, and the same is true of the 
marriage of George Parkhurst and his wife Phebe, as also of Rev. 
Timothy Dalton and his wife, Ruth. 

Another fact, although perhaps not of great weight in proving the 
identity of Mary, wife of Rev. Thomas Carter, is that four of her 
eight children had the same names as those of children of George 
Parkhurst Sr., who it should be remembered was a resident of 
Watertown, where the Rev. Thomas Carter was located at the time 
of his marriage. A fifth child was named Thomas, probably for the 
father, thus leaving only three children whose names, so to say, are 
unaccounted for. Further, it may be stated that there is no birth 
or other record of a Mary Dalton, dau. of Philemon, brother of 
Rev. Timothy Dalton. 



APPENDIX B. 

Rev. Thomas Carter. 



In view of the fact that comparatively few who may see this 
volume will be able to see the copy of the Boston Transcript of 
June I, 1904, in which was published the article referred to in the 
first paragraph of page 9, it has been thought best to reproduce the 
article entire, although some parts of it have been incorporated into 
this work. There is also given with it a portion of an article con- 
tributed to the Woburn (Mass.) Daily Times of September 26, 1908, 
by William R. Cutter Esq., librarian of the Woburn Public Library, 
to whom and to his assistant, Mr. Arthur G. Loring, the compiler is 
indebted for many suggestions and courtesies in the preparation of 
this work. 

Note *568. Carter. Rev. Thomas Carter, first minister of Woburn, Mass., 
1642, died Sept. 5, 1684 (Woburn Records), in the seventy-fourth year of his 
age and the forty-second of his ministry. According to the record, Mr. 
Carter was born about 1610. Most unfortunately for those interested in the 
genealogy of the Carter family, there seem to have been in and about Boston 
in the early days not only several men bearing the name of Thomas Carter, 
but apparently two or three of them were bom about 1610. The writer has 
spent considerable time and money within the last few years in trying to 
locate the English home and parentage of Rev. Thomas Carter, and now 
proposes to give a few facts which have been discovered in the hope that 
others interested may be able to throw some further light on the subject. 

It seems to be accepted by early genealogists (on what original authority I 
do not know) that Rev. Thomas Carter was matriculated a sizar at St. John's 
College, University of Cambridge, England, April i, 1626. Had he entered 
the university less than four years later, Jan. 21, 1629-30, all questions as to 
his home, parentage, etc., would have been known, for on the above date, the 
following order was issued by the master of St. John's College : 

"That the register of the college should have a booke provided him, 
wherein he should from time to time write and register the names, parents, 



REV. THOMAS CARTER. 27I 

country, school, age and tutor of every one to be admitted into the college 
before their enrolling into the buttery tables ; and shall receive of each of 
them for his pains as the head lecturers and deans do, for their admission." 

In accordance with the above order, such entries as the following thereafter 
appear: 

" James Parkinson, Son of James Parkinson, rector of Weeley, Essex ; 
born at Weeley; school, Colchester {Mr. Kemp) for 2 years; admitted sizar, 
surety Mr. Thurston, 17, Oct. aet. 16. (pd)." 

Early investigators not unreasonably assumed that Rev. Thomas Carter was 
identical with the Thomas Carter who embarked at London April 2, 1635, on 
the Planter, Captain Trerice, with a number of others from St. Albans, as 
"servant " to George Giddings, bound for New England. Later investigations 
show- quite conclusively that the Thomas Carter who came over in the 
Planter settled in Salisbury, Mass., although his age given in the record of 
the Planter, twenty-five, corresponds exactly with that of Rev. Thomas 
Carter of Woburn. It may be noticed here also that in the list of passengers 
who embarked from London for Virginia in the Safty, Aug. 10, 1635, 
are the names of John Carter, aged twenty-two, and Thomas Carter, aged 
twenty-five. Another Thomas Carter, bom about 1610. 

From the fact that early searchers took it for granted that Rev. Thomas 
Carter of Woburn was identical with the Thomas Carter of the Planter, 1635, 
who is said to be of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, some forty or more years ago, 
Mr. George R. Carter of Leominster, Mass., employed Mr. Pavor, an English 
genealogist, to search the parish registers of St. Albans and of Watford, 
Hertfordshire, the latter being the parish in which is situated the manor of 
Garston, seat of Richard Carter, lord of the manor of Garston, from whom 
some have supposed that both John Carter of Virginia and Rev. Thomas 
Carter of Woburn are descended. Mr. Pavor's search was unsuccessful, and 
from a discovery made by the writer at Cambridge University in the summer 
of 1900, it seems certain that Rev. Thomas Carter was not a native of 
Hertfordshire at all, l)ut of Suffolk. 

Through the courtesy of Mr. R. F. Scott, Bursar of St. John's College, 
Cambridge, who very kindly made search among the old records of the 
college, the following entity was discovered. It occurs in a list of students 
who secured scholarships at the university, and is dated Nov. 5, 1628: 

"Ego Thomas Carter Suffolciensis admissus sum discipulus hujus collegij 
pro magistro Spaldinge." 

The Spalding scholarship was founded by William Spalding, yeoman, of 
Tamworth, in Suffolk, who gave /'60, and the scholar was to be chosen from 
Bury St. Edmunds Grammar School, a school founded by King Edward VI 
in 1550. 

According to the Bursar, Mr. Scott, the above entry is evidence not only 
that the holder of the scholarship was a resident of Suffolk at the time, but 
that he was also a native of the county. 



272 REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

I might here mention the fact that photographic copies of the pages of the 
Cambridge University Record book showing the signature of Thomas Carter 
when he took the degree of A. B. in 1629, and of A. M. in 1633, may be seen 
at the Woburn Public Library, Woburn, Mass. I have also deposited at the 
Wobum Public Library photographic copies of manuscript known to be in 
the handwriting of Rev. Thomas Carter, all of which prove conclusively that 
the student of St. John's, Cambridge, and the first minister of Woburn were 
one and the same individual. With these is also a photograph, among others, 
of a deposition referred to in the " Pioneers of Massachusetts " as made by 
Rev. Thomas Carter, which by comparison is seen conclusively not to be his 
work. The deposition referred to is dated 17 (10) 1662, and was undoubtedly 
made by Thomas Carter of Charlestown, son of Thomas Carter, blacksmith, 
of Charlestown, who died 1652. In the deposition he gives his age as 
"about fifty two," so that we have here a fourth Thomas Carter who was 
born about 16 10. Three in New England and one in Virginia unless, as some 
believe, the Thomas Carter who embarked for Virginia in the Safty, 1635, 
came later to Massachusetts and became the first minister of Woburn. 
Certainly nothing further is heard of this Thomas Carter in Virginia and there 
are some good reasons for believing the above supposition to be true. 

After learning that in all probability Rev. Thomas Carter was a native of 
Suffolk and a graduate of Bury St. Edmund's School, I employed Mr. Vincent 
B. Redstone of Woodbridge, Suffolk, who is secretary of the Suffolk 
Archaeological Institute and a genealogist of wide reputation, to prosecute the 
search for me in this county. 

In the course of these investigations Mr. Redstone made careful search at 
Cambridge University, at Bury St. Edmund's and among the records of the 
county found at London as well as among the files and parish registers found 
in various parts of Suffolk County itself. Nothing further of particular value 
was found at Cambridge or at Bury or in London, and the results of the 
search in Suffolk were not conclusive, but facts were brought to light which 
may be of value in reaching a definite conclusion later on. 

By the will of James Carter of Hinderclay, County Suffolk, Yeoman 
(see Register vol. xxxix., page 335), at Somerset House, London : 
" Memorandum that James Carter late whilst hee lived of Hinderclay in the 
County of Cuffolk yeoman deceased upon Saterday the Eighth day of

Sole executor, Richard Williamson of North Lopham. 

Proved Oct. i, 1625. 

Comparing the three wills above noted, there seems to be no reasonable 
doubt that the Gregory Carter who made the will in 1606 was the father of 
James Carter who died 1625, and that the latter was the father of the James 
whose will is dated Sept. 8, 1655, in which he refers to his brother Thomas 
Carter in New England. 

Gregory Carter, in his will of 1606, speaks of two children of his son 
James, while James in 1655 mentions a sister and a brother, Thomas, making 
three children, because Thomas was not born at the time the will of the elder 
James was draw^n, or at his death, January, 1607. 

Another will found at Bury St. Edmund's is that of Nicholas Carter of 
Hinderclay, dated 1600; wife, Alice; son, Gregory; daughter, Alice; sister, 
Marion, late wife of Bearte of Garboldsham. Lands in Hopton, Wattlysfield 
and Barningham. Witnesses, Thomas and James Carter. 

This was in all probability the Nicholas Carter who married Alice Spurgeon 
in 1586, and it also seems probable that he was brother of Gregory Carter, 
who died 1607, but this cannot be affirmed from the records given. Several 
points make the construction of a pedigree difficult. Gregory Carter, senior, 
who died January, 1607, has children of the same name as Gregory Carter,

Arms of St. John's and Arms of the University united 



REV. THOMAS CARTER. 275 

junior. And besides the oft-repeated names of children, we have Alice and 
Mary as wives' names for several ; and as the register only gives the father's 
name, the entries are confusing. 

We come now to the question as to which of the Thomas Carters who 
emigrated to New England in the early days is referred to in the will of 
James Carter, 1655. And in the first place we note that the names of the 
children of all the early Carters about Boston are remarkably unlike the 
names of the Carters of Hinderclay. Gregory, Nicholas, James, Edmund, 
Robert, Humphrey, Jonathan, Jacob, Dorothy, scarcely occur among the 
children of the first Carters, while we have instead Thomas, Mary, Samuel, 
John, Martha, Joseph, and in the case of Rev. Thomas Carter of Wol^urn, 
Judith, Abigail, Theophilus, Deborah and Timothy. In fact the children of 
Rev. Thomas seem to have almost purely Bible names; the oldest son is 
Samuel; the oldest daughter, Judith; the third child and second son, 
Theophilus, while not until the fourth son and seventh child is born is a son 
named for his father, Thomas. 

Coming now to the question of which Thomas Carter was brother of 
James of Hinderclay, we note first, that the Thomas Carter who came over 
in the Planter, 1635, and afterwards settled in Salisbury, was from St. Albans, 
Hertfordshire, according to the ship's entry; was twenty-five, hence born in 
1610 and, so far as known, had no connection with the Carters of Hinderclay 
or of Suffolk at all. It will be noticed from the Register of Hinderclay that 
Thomas Carter, brother of James, was baptized July 3, 1608, and there really 
seems no probability whatever that Thomas Carter of Salisbury was the 
brother of James of Hinderclay. 

Next consider Thomas Carter, blacksmith, of Charlestown, who died in 
1652. He had children, mentioned in will, Thomas, eldest son, Samuel, 
Joseph, John ; daughters, Hannah, Mary. 

Now the eldest son, Thomas, deposed in 1662, that he was about fifty-two 
years old, so he must have been born about 1610, and his father (deceased 
1652) must have been born before 1600, and therefore could not have been 
the brother of James, and of course the son, Thomas of Charlestown, 
although born at nearly the right date, 1610, cannot possibly be the man, for 
his father's name was Thomas. 

We come then to the only man left who seems at all likely to be the 
Thomas of the will, and that is Rev. Thomas Carter, first minister of 
Woburn, and so far as I now see, only two circumstances appear to oppose 
the theory. First his age at death, 1684, is given as seventy-four. If this is 
correct, he must have been born in 1610. 

But as is well known, "age at death " is very often incorrectly given. A 
case in point is that of Thomas Carter, grandson of Reverend Thomas, who 
is buried in Warren, Conn., died Nov. 18, 1772, " AE. 88" (tombstone). He 
was son of Thomas and Margery Whitmore Carter, and according to 
Woburn Records, was born June 13, 1686. Especially frequent were errors 
of this kind in the early days. So that this objection is not serious. 



276 DESCENDANTS OF REV. THOMAS CARTER. 

The other objection to the theory is the fact that the names of Rev. 
Thomas Carter's children are so very unlike the names of the Hinderclay 
Carters. But as we have seen, this is found to be true of all other Carters of 
early New England, and so cannot be said to forbid the supposition. I might 
here remark that the statement made in the " Pioneers of Massachusetts " 
about Rev. Thomas Carter of Woburn, "born about 1608, as he deposed 17 
(10), 1662," is an error of subtraction, as well as of fact. The deposition has 
already been referred to above, and was made by Thomas Carter of Charles- 
town, son of the blacksmith. Other circumstances which seem to point to 
the truth of the theory that Thomas Carter, brother of James, was also the 
first minister of Wobum, are that his father's will, 1625, indicates a man of 
moderate means, such as a " sizar " at Cambridge often was ; again Hinder- 
clay is near Cambridge University, at which place Rev. Thomas Carter was 
graduated ; the grandfather and other relatives were certainly people of more 
than ordinary means and such as would be likely to favor a college training. 

However, I do not consider the evidence conclusive, and it is to be hoped 
that further investigations may be carried out, and the question as to which 
Thomas Carter is referred to in the will of James Carter, 1655, may be 
definitely settled. 

I will add that Mr. Redstone, who made the search for me, has already 
examined a large number of records in various parts of Suffolk, but there are 
still other sources of information which have as yet not been examined, and 
which might yield the facts desired. 

If anyone knows of facts which add to the information here given concern- 
ing the questions raised about the early Carters, it is much to be desired that 
they be made public, and the writer would be happy to co-operate with anyone 
interested, and give all the facts in his possession. H. W. Carter. 



From an article by William R. Cutter, in the Woburn Daily Times, Sept. 
26, 1908. 

Mr. Julian H. Tuttle, the assistant librarian of the Massachusetts Historical 
Society, while examining the copy of an old volume in the Boston Public 
Library, about three years ago, found pasted in the binding of the book the 
fragments of an elegy, which he supposed possessed some interest. The 
authorities of the Boston Public Library had the cover taken off and as much 
saved of the fragments as possible. 

The volume, which was small, was printed in 1685, presumably in 
Cambridge, Mass,, and the elegy was used to strengthen the back. The elegy 
was a sheet in the form of a handbill, or a "broadside." 

The restoration of the handbill was not so complete as was wished ; the 
most important part being destroyed the entire length of the back of the 
book into whose binding it was incorporated. The presumption is that it was 
an elegy on the death of the Rev. Thomas Carter, first pastor of the First 



REV. THOMAS CARTER. 277 

Church of Christ in Woburn, published in 1684, the year of his death. If so, 
here was an important discovery and the matter was referred to the present 
writer. 

I have not satisfied my mind as to the correctness of its identification, but 
Mr. Howard Williston Carter of Norfolk, Conn., after having seen the 
fragments of the elegy at the Boston Public Library, to which I called his 
attention, thinks there is no question about its reference to Mr. Carter, and 
one or two other points about it are of special interest. " One is the state- 
ment that he deceased in the 77th year of his age (1684). This may not be 
true, but it is a definite statement by one who evidently was intimately 
acquainted with the Wobum minister, and an educated man. The date of 
the birth in this case would be 1608."

Wanen, Connecticut. 



Warren, Connecticut, which has been the home, or the ancestral 
home, of so many Carters of this line, was set olif from the town of 
Kent in May, 1786, receiving its name from the gallant General 
Warren who fell at Bunker Hill. Although it has always been one 
of the smaller towns of the state, it has a most honorable record, 
both as regards the prominent men it has raised up, and also as 
regards the number and character of the sturdy pioneers who have 
gone out from its borders. Many went to Vermont ; a large number 
settled in New York and " New Connecticut " ; the towns of 
Talmadge, Edinburgh, Ruggles and Canfield in Ohio, and Waverly, 
Illinois, were largely settled from this place. 

It is stated in the printed half-century sermon of the Rev. Peter 
Starr, that 2837 persons had emigrated from the town during his 
ministry, and history records that wherever they went they were 
found among the foremost in every good work. 

The following pages will be of interest to many, containing as they 
do, the autographs of more than a hundred of the early pioneers and 
first settlers of Warren, who contributed at this time, 1790, nearly 
^4000 toward a permanent church fund. 



The fine old town of Warren will have a "Home-Coming" to-morrow, the 
2 1st, which will reach over into Sunday, when there will be appropriate 
exercises in the old church on the hill where Dr. Horace Bushnell used to 
attend service every summer and sometimes to preach. The town stands 
fourth from the bottom of the list as regards population among the towns of 
the state. It had 432 inhabitants according to the last census. Marlboro 
with 322, Andover with 385 and Union with 428 came below it. Three 
others, Bolton with 457, Salem with 468 and Scotland with 471, also had less 
than 500 people each. There are forty-four towns with each less than 1000 
of population. But size and number of people do not make the history of 
the town. Warren has been the home of a splendid lot of citizens, and men 
of eminence through the country have been — and now are — proud to trace 
their lineage back to the thrifty and high-minded folk who tilled the unwilling 
soil and breathed the pure air of that choice comer of Litchfield county. It 
is absolutely country — not a factory in its limits, possibly in these days not 
even a store. But it is a good deal nearer to heaven than some places that 
make more pretensions.
