My ggggranfather, JAMES CARR, was born in 1794 in the part of Botetourt Co. that joined Monroe Co. in 1800. His father may have been John or Isaac, he may have had brothers John, Isaac and others. His mother may have been a ROLLISON as James followed them to Braxton Co. in about 1825. James was drafted into the military in 1814 and served at Craig Island in the war of 1812. Need info on the Carr family of that time frame in that area.
