I hope ya'll are still out there and searching. To me the George Carter and Elizabeth Baxter sister to Stephen Baxter are the parents of George Carter who married Keziah Grooms. All the pieces fit. Keziah Grooms parents Benjamin Grooms and Nancy Townsend married in 1811 Bulloch Co. By 1820 they are living in McIntosh Co. They continued to live in McIntosh Co. through 1850. There is a George Carter who is recorded in McIntosh in 1830. He and his wife are born between 1781-1790. One male child is recorded in their household aged between 1815-1820. The census bears out that Keziah would have married in McIntosh and bore their first children in McIntosh. The 1840 census has a new George Carter recorded along with the George Carter who has been living in McIntosh. The ages and children's ages compare with George, Keziah and their children. Family history has George and his family living in Long Co. until their move to Putnam and St Johns, FL. At that time Long didn't exist. That would have been McIntosh Co. Keziah's mother's family probably established Townsend, GA, in McIntosh Co. Now the current genealogical research places George's father as Daniel Carter. This may be a result of them naming their first male child Daniel. But, if there is no hard evidence to back that up, I'd place him in George who married Elizabeth Baxter's household. Researchers might be off a generation in their reasoning. The Phobe Carter who shows up in 1820 Liberty Co. might have been the widow of David Carter the brother of George Carter in 1820 Tattnall credited with the brood in Appling Co. I invite anyone to take a look at the census evidence and see if the facts don't offer a pausible theory for Jacob>Daniel>George>George more so than Jacob>George>Daniel>George.
