Cary surname....

Anyone find that this could also be a shortened version of McQuarrie,MacQuary, McQuery, Currie or any of the various spelling of McQuarrie.

This is just an FYI for anyone who may be looking for Nancy Carey, from Worcester, MD.

I was at the Edward H. Nabb Center for Family History and Culture in Salisbury, MD the other day. For some reason I was looking in the Fowke Family Tree book compiled and published by Ray Fowke, Hamilton, New Zealand.

In the line for Daniel Fookes (#18AS, Tree B) I found the following:
b. 25 Nov 1785
d. ______
m. 16 Feb. 1811 at Worcester, MD, USA to Nancy Carey.
“Daniel moved to Cypress Creek, near Paducah, KY with his family about 1830.”
James Liburn Fooks b. 1816
Jonathan Fookes b. 1918
Samuel Fookes b. 1821
Annis Fookes b. 1823
Eleanor Fookes b. 1825
Daniel Fookes b. 1828
Leah Fookes b. 1831

Sarah--I have not found that to be the case in our research, but anything is possible. I've seen Carrie, Carrew, Karey, Carney, etc. The Currie is certainly possible.
