Hi Paula-
Wow - surprised to get a reply from a post this old. Guess I kinda forgot about this deed. I suppose what I should do is retrace my steps to see if I ever scoped out Wayne Co, NY Carrs. The location of land sold in Luzerne Co "could" be connected to my husband's Carrs, especially since the James Carr I mentioned was first seen there [Luzerne Co, PA] on 1810 census. By 1812-1813, Bradford Co was formed from parts of Luzerne Co, PA. Trouble is, I tracked our James Carr on old tax assessments for Wyalusing, PA and only see him up through c 1816 and after that I haven't been able to find him, i.e have no idea where he was in 1820 - 1839. Our James Carr resurfaces, however, in 1840, on the Herrick twp, Bradford Co, PA census so he can't be the same one who was in Wayne Co in 1840. Do you have any more info on your James Carr that may help us sort this out? It may be that the James Carr and wife Anna were never actually in Luzerne County, PA, that the land on the deed was inherited from a relative who lived there. Can you connect to any of the other surnames mentioned?
Mary Lou, Bradford Co, PA
