I haven't found any links between my Carter line and the Carter lines in Virginia. If there is a connection, it's back in England somewhere. My grandfather did look exactly like a picture in a history book of Robert "King" Carter, a big plantation owner in Virginia. I've wondered ever since about a family connection.
Hi Pam. My Carter's were my Great Grand Mother-Anna Eliza Carter, Born: 864 in Ky and Died: 1931 in Estill Cty, Ky. Her farther was Martin Van Buren Carter, Born: 1835 in Bath Cty, Ky.

His Father was Joseph Jacob Carter III and it goes back to Thomas Carter from Hedfordshire, England. Born: Bet 1528-1535.
