This is an interesting and much questioned subject. Some people think that Thomas Carrier (aka Morgan) was too young to have fought in the English rebellion but they forget that back then the average life span was much shorter and people accomplished much more at a younger age then.
In my research I've never found any reference indicating that Thomas was ever involved in King Philips war (1675-1676) which is strange seeing he lived in right in the middle of it. However, if we take his alleged birth year of 1624 or so as fact, then he would have been 51 during that war and would explain why he wouldn't have been involved.
Concerning longevity, I've noted the ages at death of my line down to my father as (56, 92, 76, 75, 74, 98, and 82) or an average age of 79. Not quite as good as ole Thomas.
It will be interesting to see what comments this subject generates.
