There is a record in St. Albans [Franklin Co., VT] of a Carter Crippin, son of David Crippin and Lydia Brooks, born 7 JAN 1818... 
I just rechecked my birth records for St. Albans and see that Carter's birth just says David and Lydia Crippins...
David Crippen, father of Carter B. Crippen was married to Lydia Love...
