Carter's/ Walkers of Virginia and North Carolina. .

Journal by carpills

I am still looking for verification of my Thomas Benjamin Carter dob 1828 born in Virginia or North Carolina. I show both places in my research. Thomas Benjamin Carter married Martha Walker dob 1825-1830 in 1846 Caswell, North Carolina, she was born in Georgia. The brick here lies in the names of both of their parents. There are so many Walkers in That area and it is hard to find her Father and Mother. Same with Carters but they seem to be from Henry county, Virginia. Thomas and Martha had four children l. Sarah 1847, William David, Robert Pinkney 1853 and Mary Elizabeth 1858. I have been able to locate all of them with the exception of Sarah. Martha died in 1860 and Thomas Benjamin joined up in the Civil War in 1861. Leaving his young children behind. He enlisted under Thomas Benjamin but the record of his death in 1863 show Benjamin Thomas Carter. He died of blood poisoning from his wounds in a prison camp. I do not know what happened to the young girls. The boys were found living with a Henry Loftis in 1870 as farm hands. The Loftis and Pascals seem to be connected to the Carter family because in a letter they are mentioned of by Mary Elizabeth Carter Murphy she married James Murphy and lived in Reidsville, North Carolina all here married life. Any help locating their ancestors would really help me so much.

Scott thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, I think that on the Thomas Benjamin side all that is on there is what I entered myself. On Martha Walker I am still trying to verify that this is the Martha Walker that is in my line. Martha Walker at that time in that area was a very popular name. I just need to find out if the information that has been entered is correct. So I have been throwing out this family to anyone else who could help me verify what has been entered by someone else on that site. Records are few and hard to find down in the south during the Civil War.
