probable parents. note married in 1797 but earliest known children start in 1810 - probably had several older children before 1810 but can not find in census. There is a older woman "Moring Carter" in Surry Co, NC 1800 census who could be Henry's mother, Mourning Hickman Carter, just after his father died.

1) They are neighbors to Jesse and Delilah Carter Prince in Buncombe Co, NC 1820. (6 hh away)
2) Henry and Martha's known children: Sarah, Elizabeth, Martha, Preshus, and George
3) Jesse and Delilah's children include a Preshia, Elizabeth, Martha, Sarah, George, and Henry!
4) Henry Carter was a Methodist minister
5) "Moring Carter" in Surry Co, NC 1800 would account for Delilah being born about 1800 in Surry.
6) Jesse and Delilah move from Jackson Co, AL to Fannin Co, GA - close by her parents.

Nathan and Levi are neighbors in Henry Co, TN. They are next to each other in the alphabetized tax list of 1836, 1837, & 1840, but in the same district with no other Carter's.

Court records Nathan Carter was executor following the death of Unknown Carter in 1825, and became guardian of a minor named Patsy Carter. This implies there was probably a 3rd brother who died ~1825. Ephraim Carter is nearest Carter in 1820 Census, Stewart Co, TN, but he is much older - 45+.
