Descendancy Chart of Peter Carrico

My Great Aunt Francis Carrico Suetholz had a copy of this wall size chart. About 10 years or so (give or take a few), my mother borrowed the chart & then I from her. Before we returned the chart, I attempted to "copy" what Maud had drawn on the chart. It was in tree format with the lines flowing down from Peter & his children. There was no means to photo copy the chart, because of it's size. What I attempted was to set the information up in a text file, I included a generation number & a parent name so that I could later follow the information as Maud had put it in the chart.

You will notice that there are errors. There are even some differences in the way Maud has the family protrayed compared to Homer Edwin Carrico's The Carrico Family published 1951 in the Filson Club Quarterly, Vol. XXV. Homer, in Footnote #4 states:

    "Maude Carrico Russell, a descendant of Thomas Ignatius Carrico, now nearly blind, living in Twenty Nine Palms, California, did a great amount of research into the genealogy of the Carrico family. She placed the product of her research on a large chart. It is regretted that she did not give references information but merely placed a bibliography on this chart.
    She very kindly sent her notebooks to the author and it was found that she had been content with merely names and parentage. Therefore this chart is merely served as a guide as to possible sources of genealogical data.  Much of the material, unless otherwise identified by appropriate explanations, was copied from Miss Russell's chart. This is especially true of data concerning descendants of Abel Carrico, Levi Carrico son of Thomas Ignatius, and Vincent Carrico."

Maud has the immigrant Peter as being the same Peter who wrote his will in 1764, Homer indicates that the will was written by the son of the immigrant Peter. Maud has Abel Carrico who married Ann Kent as son of the immigrant Peter, totally bypassing Abel & Elizabeth Simms, whereas Homer acknowledged Abel Carrico married to Elizabeth, but has Rev. William Carrico has son of Abel & Elizabeth rather than Able & Ann.

An additional error, as it concerns my own ancestor, Alexander Carrico who married Mary Sedgwick 1800 in Montgomery Co., MD.

Maude has Alexander as son of James Carrico of Peter, who did have a son Alexander, but by the accounts of the Charles Co., MD Orphans Court in 1812 was still a minor. Additionaly, Maude indicates that Alexander was born in "1749 or 1750", "removed to Beverly Mass." where he served in the Revolution, married twice, 1st to Elizabeth Foster, 2nd to Mary Sedgwick & died in Mass. in 1821. Maude clearly had 3 different Alexander Carrico's confused as being the same man, despite there being at least a 40 year difference in birth of the oldest Alexander & the youngest Alexander.

Homer Edwin Carrico must've realized this, & perhaps not knowing where Alexander who married Mary Sedgwick fit it, included him as a son of Peter Carrico of Preston WV. To this day, we still don't know just where our Alexander who married Mary Sedgwick fits in with Peter Carrico's descendants.

There are other errors. Please, use this information cautiously. Take what is given here as clues, not as fact, please try to verify the information.

Any notations in red on any of the following pages will be my own notes & not what was on the actual chart. I will attempt to link to documents or the transcriptions I have located on this website.

Due to the size of this file, I have broken it into several pages.
The following order is not historically correct, but rather,
how Maud Carrico Russell had the descendancy on her chart.

Peter Carrico, the immigrant
Abel Carrico (Peter)
James Carrico (Peter)
Alexander m. 1st Elizabeth Foster (James, Peter)
