NOTE: I'm researching a family by the name of Keith. My hunch now is that John Carr's first wife was a Keith. George W. Keith also had a mother named Martha Gamble. Many thanks to Shirley Holder Antrim and James Griffin.
5/18/2007--Researching a family named Hall. Connection with Wilkinson County, GA and Pope/Saline/Williamson Counties in IL. Connections with the Dent family
10/21/2008--The Holloman family very likely came to Pope County, IL from Wilson County, TN.
5/28/2009--New records found on the Sheltons. Thomas Shelton and Elizabeth were definitely the parents of Sarah, Eli, etc.
Hi! I hope all visitors find this page useful. Thanks to all who have helped out in the last few years. (Due to space limitations, I have to eliminate most research comments.)
I want to thank Brenda Kruger, Joy Copeland, and Jim Carr family. Also Shirley Carter, Rich Edwards, and Sharon Estes. Thanks to Susan Jonnson for much info on the Holloman family. In early May, 2004, I got some info on Charlotte Carr-James Rudd from Bob Orr of Iowa. Thanks a lot! Just recently, I've made contact with Bob Bales on the Husband family and Chris Hood on the Adams family. Chris Hood has supplied more info on the James Adams family. Thanks! Kathy and Larry Oathout have been a big help with the Adams, too.
I just made contact with a couple of new Carr cousins--Albert Carr and his daughter Sherrie. Also I just got back in touch with a couple of McCarty relations--Bobbye Jeffrey Waligura and her daughter Brenda.

The Carr family was also in Carroll County, AR in the 1850s. John Carr, 4th gr grandfather, made a land bounty application from Carroll County in early 1853. He made a further application in 1857.
Big thanks to Virgle Chappell for helping us to solve the mystery of Mary Elizabeth Chappell. Mr. John Osseck provided help on the Beucke family.
