Carrier Family Genealogy Forum
There is some confusion about Martin vs. Joseph Martin Carrier. There is no doubt Milton H. and Leroy were brothers, I have the 1900 US census on that. It also lists the other siblings, the twins. The parents are listed as Martin and Martha. The same goes for the 1880 census. Leroy and Milton are not there obviously but the twins are. The ages of the parents on these census make "Martin" born in 1853. The 1870 census for Milton M. Carrier has a son Martin born about 1849, and a son Joseph M. (Martin?) born in 1853. It is my belief, although not yet proved, that Joseph may have gone by the name Martin. The Martin born in 1849 died in 1919, Joseph in 1923. To further complicate thngs, Leroy and Milton H. also had a brother named Joseph! I have sent for a copy of Leroy's birth certificate to hopefully authenticate his fathers name.
