Hi Happy,

I'm going to broach several surnames, and hope you will correct and enlighten me on some of these relationships.

I sent you an email regarding my Isaac Carter who married Ruth Kilgore, daughter of Elizabeth (maiden name possibly Greer) and William Kilgore, son of Benjamin Kilgore and Jane McDavid. Researchers of this family seem to think Elizabeth's maiden name was Greer. Isaac and Ruth Kilgore Carter's daughter, Evaline Carter married James Baldwin Womack who was the great-grandson of Sarah Johnson and Maj. Jacob Womack, a committeeman of the 1776 Watauga Petition. In 1790 Jacob Womack, his wife, Sarah Johnson and most of their family were enumerated under Jacob's name in Pendleton District, SC.

Also signing the Watauga petition were Alexander Greer, Joseph Greer, Andrew Greer and Andrew Greer, Jr. According to some sources, the Watauga signer, Alexander Greer's son, Andrew Greer, Sr. was born ca. 1730 Londonderry, Ulster, Ireland.

Col. John Carter was the Chairman of the Watauga committee and his son, Gen. Landon Carter signed the petition. I've never established a relationship with my Isaac Carter and any descendant of Col. John Carter. Isaac Carter's Civil War documents indicate he was born in Caldwell Co., KY.

However, I do know that Isaac Carter was a descendant of the Carters of Bertie Co., NC. I haven't been able to establish the relationship of Margaret "Peggy" Unknown and Cullen Carter on the 1800 Bertie Co., NC census with the descendants of Moore Carter and Jane Kindred, but I do know that the estate of one Isaac Carter "fell into the hands" of Cullen Carter of Bertie Co., NC. Nor can I find a relationship Margaret "Peggy" Unknown and Cullen Carter to Turner Carter who married Elitha Jenkins 1804 in Bertie Co., NC, and removed to Caldwell Co., KY ca. 1809. They named a son Cullen Carter.

The elder Cullen Carter died and a Will was probated in NC 1804 Bertie County - Will Book E page 233

Carter, Cullen Apl. 20, 1804; May Term 1804. Wife Peggy, my children, wife Exr.
Test, Benjamin, Carter, S. Turner

Margaret "Peggy" (maiden name unknown) Carter was enumerated 1810 in Bertie Co., NC.

Greene Co., Georgia Land Records
Deeds 1785-1810

Deed Book CC page 486:

Cullin Carter Greene County State of Georgia - Cato (sic, Cader -bw) Carter of Greene County appointed as his lawful attorney, William Easen of Greene County on 31 August 1810 to act for him in the State of North Carolina to collect whatever is due him from the estate of Isaac Carter, deceased, which fell into the hands of Cullin Carter in his lifetime, Wit: William Johnson, J.P., and E. E. Park. Recorded 10 September 1810.

And according to some sources, the subject of this discussion, John Greer's son Joseph Greer's son, Robert Greer married Benjamin Kilgore and Jane McDavid's daughter Ibba Kilgore.

Isaac Carter and Ruth Kilgore's daughter, Stacy Ann Carter married ca. 1848 Silas B. Pinnell, born ca. 1823 MO, son of Peter Pinnell and Anna Sullivant, daughter of Mary "Polly" Harvey and Claiborne Sullivant, son of Charles B. Sullivant and Mary Charlton. Prior to her marriage to Charles B. Sullivant, Mary Charlton was the 2nd wife of Joseph Johnson who died 1761 Lunenburg Co., VA. Joseph Johnson's daughter by his 1st wife, Sarah Johnson married Maj. Jacob Womack.

The Pinnells and Sullivants were in Livingston Co., KY ca. 1808 before that area became Caldwell Co., KY. They were in Caldwell Co., KY by 1809. In 1830 the Pinnells and Sullivants were in Harmony, Washington Co., MO. By 1840 Peter Pinnell and Anna Sullivant were in Cache, Greene Co., AR. Their son, Silas B. Pinnell and Stacy Ann Carter they were enumerated in immediately under Isaac Carter and Ruth Kilgore in Crooked Creek, Carroll Co., AR in 1840.


Is there a possibility that Elizabeth (nee Greer?) Kilgore Jenkins was a descendant of the subject John Greer? Elizabeth married 2nd Jesse Jenkins 3 Nov 1814 Caldwell Co., KY. She paid taxes on 100 acs. on Crooked Creek, Caldwell Co., KY in 1821 and 1823. She paid taxes on 223 acs. on Crooked Creek in 1822 in Caldwell Co., KY. This seems to be the same 100 acs. that Isaac Greer paid taxes on in Crooked Creek, Caldwell Co. KY in 1816. In her Will she left her son "a certain tract or survey of land lying on a branch of Crooked Creek, known by the name of Greer Place."

Is this the same Isaac Greer who moved with Elizabeth Greer Kilgore Jenkins' son, Hugh Kilgore and Levi Greer to Marengo Co., AL?

Happy, I really need your input on the Greers of Caldwell Co., KY.
