Hello Carpenter List,

Horace Walpole Carpentier (HWC), was a descendant of William Carpenter (b. abt 1605 England - who settled in Rehoboth, MA). HWC is number 12771 in the CE 2009 Data DVD. HWC was born 6 Mar 1824 NY and died 31 Jan 1918 in NY.

HWC later lived in New York City but spent considerable time in and around Berkley, CA. As a lawyer in California, he got into many different things! See the link below for details!

Mr. Alan Cohen of Berkley, CA recently wrote or re-wrote a history of Berkley and also wrote of HWC. See links:

He is now preparing another book that involves HWC.

Mr. Cohen is looking for descendants of HWC or those who have information on HWC. He is interested in letters, pictures and other memoranda.

Mr. Cohen can be contacted via email at:

Thank you,
