Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 359, Monon Township, White County, Indiana

"PATRICK H. CARR was born in Auglaize County, Ohio, March 15, 1851. His parents were natives of Ireland; came to America in 1831, and located in Auglaize County. PATRICK attended school until he was thirteen years old, when he commenced to work on the Miami Canal for two years; he then returned to home labor and attended the Normal School at Lebanon until about twenty years of age. Afterward he went to Illinois, where in East Lynn, he served as freight and express agent for three years; thence he removed to LaFayette, where, on February 10, 1874, he married JULIA A. (MOORE) CARR, who had one child, JAMES A. To this union were born three children - JOHN M (deceased), CHARLES C. and HENRY L. After his marriage, MR. CARR began the general merchandise business, which he continued two years; he was also Deputy Sheriff one year, and farmed in Pulaski County three years. There sold out, and in March, 1863, came to this township, purchased a stock and commenced merchandising, and he is now one of the leading business men. MR. CARR is an active Republican, and a Knight of Pythias; his wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
