Re: Thomas Morgan Carrier's age

I should add a little documentation to my earlier message. Laura L. Carrier had lived in Jefferson Manor, Brookville, Pennsylvania from 1979 until her death in 1992. She enjoyed playing the piano, teaching music and being with people. I remember that she had communicated with my aunt, I believe in the 1950s, and I have the letter somewhere in my files at my other home in Kentucky. I didn't know it at that time but she would have been probably in her 70s then. Her letter to my aunt concerned a Carrier family reunion. At present, I am at my South Carolina home and won't be able to dig out the letter for a few more months.

Her line was Scott W., Darius, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas.

As to Thomas' age during King Philips War, it is important to remember that the life expectancy from Roman times up until 1800 was less than 30 years of age (as quoted by Stephen Moore of the Cato Institute, October 15, 1999)so during that war Thomas was already an old man by the standards of that time as you have pointed out. I have puzzled over where Thomas was during the years 1655 until he pops up around the 1670s. Anybody have any information on that?
