THIS IS ANOTHER CALEB CARTER HE MAY BE THE "MISSING LINK"
CALEB CARTER received 200 acres in Blount Co., TN, 22 Feb 1795 (we have copy of deed)
This Caleb served on jury duty, was overseer of roads, had estray (cattle) recorded from Sep 1795, through Jan 1798, when another man was appointed road overseer in his place.
He sold the 200 acres by power of attorney (Jacob Meek) on 26 Dec 1799 (Land Bk. G., p. 393, have copy) indicating that he had already moved from TN by this time. THIS DEED WAS NOT FILED UNTIL Jul 1922 (we think when the estate of the man who purchased it was being probated). The minute book does not show anything about where Caleb CARTER was living in 1822.
WHERE DID THIS CALEB CARTER GO 1798-99, WHEN HE LEFT BLOUNT CO., TN??
To prove connection to our family:
WE NEED A DOCUMENT land, entry in some journal or minute book, etc.) SHOWING THAT THIS CALEB CARTER, MOVED TO MASON COUNTY, KY by 1800
Two pieces of "circumstantial evidence:"
