Here is my Carter info again.I still have been unable to locate the parents of Joseph Carter and Belsora Elizabeth Lavender.

Joseph b abt 1800 maybe in Amherst co.He lists Amherst as his place of birth on the marriage record of his daughter Mary Jane Carter.

I have been looking at a Carter family who were from Buckingham Co.They had at least three Joseph's.They also married into the Chastain family.Joseph named one of his daughters CHASTAIN A CARTER.

I found the middle name of Jospeh's grand-son Herbert.It is BURTON.I am hoping someone may know of a connection with this new info.I have been unable to locate anything about the Burton name except one of the Carter's from Buckingham married a Burton.I am hoping this is a clue.

I hate to keep posting the same information, but I really want to find the parents and siblings of Joseph and Belsora (Sarah-Sally) Lavender.On the marriage bond for Joseph & Belsora an Allen Lavender was the surety.There was an Allen Lavender and Betsy Stratton Lavender in the 1850 Amherst Co Census.They were living with a Davidson family.I believ this Allen is the one who signed the marriage bond.
