Jacob CARRIER, b. PA 1798

The name CARRIER has 4 major national origins in the early history of North America. Thomas CARRIER, Welsh, settled in MA; John, English, VA; French, Canada and Western NY; and the German, PA and Mid-Atlantic states.

I have been unable to place my Carrier family, although I feel the VA clan is probable. In Lancaster Co. PA there are, in the 1790 and 1800 census, CARRIER (Jacob and John, Catherine) spellings mixed with Kerchner (German) that later changed the spelling to Carrier. Anyone out there with some idea?
Jacob Carrier, b. PA 1798, m Sarah Stephens, b PA 1798, daughter of Catherine Stephen, b 1769 MD. Children, George W; Catherine (Keck); Elizabeth (McKnight); Isabelle (Jewell); Judson; Lousia (Dean); Lyman.
