Tom P. Carter
Stephen Goodson CARTER came to Murray County in 1846 from North

(age 38-born in Va),Ann E.(age 26-born in Tn.), John W.(age15-born in
Mary C.(age 7-born in Tn.)and James M. (age 20-born in N.C.) All ages
are as of 1850 census. I am Stephen Goodson Carter's grandson and I am
trying to determine who his father and mother are. While it's possible
that William was his father, it isn't likely that Ann was his mother,
she would only have been 13 when he was born. Also, it appears that he
had brothers John W. and James M. . And, it's possible that William and
Ann were his older brother and sister. I'm looking for any information
that will tell me who the mother and father were.

I am trying to see if the Robert KING family I found in Murray Co. in
1850 census is the same as that on the 1870 census in Caiborne parish,
La. The reason I am uncertain is my great-grandfather, Daniel P. KING,
was not born until 1854. (He was born in Ga., and reported on the 1880,
1900, and 1910 censuses that both his parents were as well). He DID
a brother, William, born in 1847, but the child named William on the
census is 1, not 3. Please someone clear up my confusion.

Julia Ann GREEN was born 15 Feb 1830. She married a Mr. MILLER about
1848 and they had two boys William Russell "Russ" MILLER, born

their own; Missouri Cordelia HENDERSON, born 1857, and Martin Luther

Elizabeth HENDERSON, born 1860, and Daniel HENDERSON Jr., born 1862.

Civil War and never returned home. We don't know what happened to him.
His wife Julia moves the family up to Murray County, GA, where they are
found on the 1870 census. Both sons Allison and William MILLER find
