Military records and birthplace of children in 1870 census indicate family moved to Morgan Co., KY from Grayson Co., VA between 1864 and 1867 - probably after the Civil War. Listed as farmer in 1870 Morgan Co. Census, Blackwater district; value of farm $700. In the 1860 Grayson Co. census he is listed with his father, Thomas Carr.

From the Sentinel-Democrat:
      On the 2 day of October, [1877] Jeff J. Carr, a prominent citizen of Morgan County, was shot while riding along the road and instantly killed. His slayer was hid in the bushes on the roadside and used a shot gun and it is probable that Carr did not know or see the assassin. The whole community was aroused and every possible effort was used to discover who did the shooting but to no avail. Various persons were accused but satisfactory proof was made against any one, and no indictment was made until at the recent session of the Morgan Circuit Court, when the grand jury, after examining a number of witnesses, returned an indictment against Thomas Fields, accusing him of committing the murder, and against James Perry, Cyrus Perry, Sr., and Jasper Perry as being accessories, and all conspiring aiding and abetting. As we are informed, the indictment was made on the testimony of the wife of James Perry and circumstances surrounding the parties which go to establish the theory that Fields was hired to do the killing by the Perrys who were enemies of Carr because he had in a difficulty killed John Harvey Perry, the son of Cyrus, and brother of James and Joseph.
      Fields is a well known criminal and is now in the penitentiary serving a sentence in the Mason Circuit Court for horse stealing. The friends of the Perrys claim that there is no just grounds for the accusation against them, and the Commonwealth's Attorney, pro tem, who drew the indictment is of the opinion that no case can be made on the testimony produced before the grand jury.

James Carr is buried on a hill under a cherry tree on a private farm near Ezel, Morgan Co., KY.
