I am searching for any information concerning JACOB CARPER of Berkeley co va - may be the same JACOB CARPER who died apr 24 1883 in clarke co va.(the age fits- born 1830) The only Information I have been able to find is that he married MARIA RONEY in berkeley co 1849- had 3 children listed in the 1860 census- james,john,jacob A. (my great-grandfather). My great-grandfather jacob had moved to Ohio as a teenager
between 1870 & 1880. We know the info from 1880 to present in anybody needs it.

To add to this perplexing issue- Jacob Carper seems to just appear in Berkeley co. Cant find any relationship to the carper who owned the mill there- I researched and discovered that it was nicholas Carper- brother of jacob b 1755 in Botetourt and died 1826 in tennessee.
There are rumors of a family rift- but over what I dont know- this could explain some of this confusion.

any help over this brick wall would be greatly appreciated. email me at
