Actually, I have links to several of the names mentioned, but I'm really interested in finding out more on Margaret Love's line...anything new come up on that? It's also the lst I'd heard that she was the 2nd wife of Capt Peter Moore and I don't know his history either. I just know that several of my Va/Ky kin had prior oceanic experience, which they converted into the inland navigational vocations of the day, etc. For some reason, that part of their resumes seems to be overlooked by some of their descendants...or it's part of the brickwall syndrome. I wonder if anyone's found anything on "Capt" Peter Moore...or his lst family's kin, yet. He and Margaret Love are the grandparents of my G-G-grandmtr, Susan Malena Barton, who married Wm.J.Carter. They were in the Knox/Bell/Whitley area of KY, then, in 1870, they were in Pekin,WA Co., 1880, back in Knox Co.,Ky...then in 1900, they were in Hunt Co.,TX. By 1910, their dtr, Lydia Carter is back in Bell Co.,Ky, in the Castor/er 1920, in TX in the Ed Story hh as his housekeeper. I add this, so someone might recognize the migration pattern and the names, maybe. At the Ky Kin site, I saw some of the same people I've seen posted on a Carter site, of Knox/Bell Co. Ky. I'm trying to track Susan M. Barton's maternal side, for health reasons, in addition to the obvious ones of finding my ancestors, so I'd like to find Margaret Love's parents, as well. Thanks.
I believe that the Malena was from an aunt, Malena Mitchell.
Wm J.Carter's dad, Isaac Carter was said to be Black Dutch. His mother was Nancy J.Walters. Her mother was Alcey. Nancy lived long and passed away in Whitley Co.,Ky, in the 1920's.
When they were in Indiana, they were linked to the Phillips by a marraige of either a dtr or sister, Harriet Carter. The Phillips were from PA. Isaac Carter had a brother named Solomon, after their ftr, who was in the 1810 Bell Co.,Ky census. I can't figure why Lydia and Ran (Joel R.?) Carter/Castor/went back to Ky. He supposedly died of a bug bite. I've yet to find places of burial for most of the above kin, I mentioned. My grandmtr didn't speak of her family and only told me her parent's names just before she passed on in the mid 1980's. Hope to find someone, who's kin were kin to her. She remained in East Tx her entire life, but married at 14, in Quanah TX., 1916. She had two sisters, one married a Sparks, the other a Wilcox, both in Cass Co.,TX., in the 1930's. I have been researching the Melungeons. Nancy Morrison Sparks sites, especially. I believe the ethnicity aspect figured into all this, somehow. There were Melungeons in the Morgan/Magoffin Co., Ky area, but they've mostly been absorbed into the general population, now. Many of the seafarers, especially the French, were encouraged to intermingle with the indigenous peoples, wherever their country held lands. Many were in HMS and sent to British colonies in the Indies and the Caribbean. Some of mine, were in the Caribbean, in what's now Haiti..then, Santo Domingo. These had kids who married into the Green lines, in Greenup Ky, the Moores in Cabell Co.,VA, directly across the river., and they were early settlers in Boyd Co.,(Ashland), Morgan/Magoffin, Lawrence, Floyd, etc. Many were linked to the earliest Huguenots, who colonized VA, and purchased large land parcels for the settlement of the "west" when it reopened..Ky, the Ohio Valley, etc. It's all very interesting, but hard to document their lineages, for many reasons. I have links to all the surnames you show in the heading for this posting, except Wheat., to my knowledge.
