More info on Charles Carter of Mecklenburg, VA
Posted by: Peyton Carter (ID *****9735) Date: September 27, 2013 at 12:29:58
In Reply to: Carter-Mays/Mayes-Vaughan-Wilkes connection in 1700ís Virginia by Peyton Carter of 22774

From the Mecklenburg County, Virginia, WB 8, p. 9
Will of John VAUGHAN 9/23/1813
Witnessed by: John Butler, Hardy Jones, Ann Overby, Elizabeth Butler, Charles Carter, Benjamin Carter

This Charles Carter seems likely to be the same as the Charles Carter married to Mary Mays/Mayes (see previous post).

This Benjamin Carter may be the same Benjamin Carter who was named as a witness to the will of Green Ligon in 1802 in Nottoway. Also named as a witness is Presley Jeter, the husband of Phoebe Carter, whom he married in Amelia in 1783, indicating that Benjamin carter and Presley Jeter may be brothers-in-law. With Charles and Benjamin showing up on the same document, it seems liekly that there is a connection here too. (This is probably the same Benjamin Carter, whose daughter married Chappell Chandler in Mecklenburg Co., VA in 1817 and later dies in Caswell, NC in 1831.)

John Vaughan, whose will both Charles and Benjamin Carter witness (above), is the son of William T. Vaughan. His stepmother was Mildrigde Vaughan, who makes her will in Mecklenburg Co., VA in 1789. Her will is witnessed by a Joseph Carter and David Chandler. I do not know who this Joseph Carter is. (David Chandler, born c.1760, is the son-in-law of William T. Vaughan and the first cousin of Robert Chandler, born 1773; Robert is the father of Chappell Chandler who marries Mary Carter, the daughter of Benjamin Carter, in 1817 in Mecklenburg.)

William T. Vaughan (c.1705 - 1785) is the son of Samuel Vaughan. Samuel Vaughan is the brother of Nicholas Vaughan (c.1685 in Charles City - 1738 in Amelia County, Virginia). Nicholas Vaughan is the grandfather of James Vaughan of Amelia (d.1803, see previous post).

Looking to make the case that:
Charles Carter, b.1762 in Dinwiddie, later of Mecklenburg
Benjamin Carter, witness in Nottoway and Mecklenburg, dies in Caswell, NC
Phoebe Carter, married Presley Jeter in Amelia in 1783, dies in Lunenburg in 1819 under the name Hatchett
are all related, possibly brothers and sister.

Not sure how Joseph Carter, witness in Mecklenburg in 1789, fits in yet.
