Cornelius CARRICO, the elder
Susannah SHANKS
NOTICE:  a patrilineal descendant of our subject is participating in the CARRICO Y-chromosome DNA Surname Project.  Anyone who suspects he descends from our subject on a direct male line can support that connection with a DNA test.
Husband:  Cornelius "Neely" CARRICO / CARRICOE
Birth:  1771/2, MD
Death apparently:  1850-60, Washington Co., KY
Y-DNA Haplogroup:  J-2a4b*, a.k.a. J-M67
Father:  unproven
Mother:  unproven 

WARNING:  Some sources give the parents of Cornelius as James & Elizabeth (CLEMENT) CARRICO, but there is no mention of a Cornelius in James's estate inventory.  Some sources give his parents as Henry & Susanna (__?__) CARRICO, but Henry is too young (born 1760s or early 1770s), and Henry's son is a different Cornelius CARRICO (b. 1797/8).   Others say our subject is Henry's brother.  This last is at least possible, though I've found no documentation supporting it.

Marriage:  27 Jan 1806, Nelson Co., KY
Wife:  Susannah SHANKS
Birth:  1780-84
Death apparently:  1830-40, Washnigton Co., KY

1810 KY Nelson Co. Bardstown [Dist?] Roll 8 p. 327 Ln. 19 Carrico Corns 10010-20010-00
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1800-1810 = Edward (b. 1809/10)
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Cornelius (b. 1771/2)
2 females 9 or under 1800-1810 = Theresa (b. 1808)
= Ann (b. 1807)
1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Susannah

5.  1820 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #30 of 52; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1820 KY Washington Co. Roll M33_29 p. 64 Ln 8 Corneleous Carrico(?) 310001-21010-0-200 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
3 males 9 or under 1810-1820 = Son C
= Son B
= Son A
1 male 10-15 1804-1810 = Edward (b. 1809/10)
1 male 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Cornelius (b. 1771/2)
2 females 9 or under 1810-1820 = Daughter B
= Daughter A
1 female 10-15 1804-1810 = Ann (b. 1807) or Theresa (b. 1808)
1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Susannah
2 persons engaged in agriculture
The first four letters of the surname are fairly clearly, "Carr," while the last three may be, "ico," but they're really not readable, though the letters certainly have no ascenders or descenders.  Neither Ann nor Theresa is married, yet, so is having only one daughter in the 1804-1810 age class a result of enumerator error or is one away at school?

5.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #73-74 of 116; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1830 KY Washington Co. Roll M19_42 p. 187 Ln. 5 Cornelius Carricoe 000 110 001 - 000 000 100 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 15-19 1810-1815 = Son A or B or C
1 male 20-29 1800-1810 = Edward (b. 1809/10)
1 male 60-69 1760-1770 = Cornelius (b. 1771/2)
1 female 40-49 1780-1790 = Susannah
Theresa, Ann, and Edward married between 1820 and 1830, so we expect them to be missing from the household.  Either their younger children married very young or they've lost several or they're away at school or working out of the home.  Cornelius appears to be in the wrong age class (he should be in his 50s, not 60s).  Listed three lines from Cornelius's son-in-law, Francis H. O'BRYAN

6.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #69-70 of 94; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤

These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = grandson, Thomas (b. 1837/8)
1 male 15-19 1820-1825 = hired help?
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Son A/B/C? hired help?
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Edward (b. 1809/10 
1 male 50-59 1780-1790 = Cornelius (b. 1771/2)
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = granddaughter, Susan (b. 1835/6)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = daughter-in-law, Matilda (b. 1810/1)
2 persons employed in agriculture
Cornelius again appears to be in the wrong age class (he should be in his 60s, not 50s).  Listed next to Cornelius's widowed daughter, Theresa "Trecy" (CARRICO) O'BRYAN

9.  Archives of the CARRICO-L mailing list (online at RootsWeb.com), specifically, a post by Pauline Stubbs:
...the Deed came from microfilm Serial No 241,396 copied at the Genealogical Library by William Morton and comes from Washington County, Kentucky Deeds, Books S-T 1851-1855 p.90...

Carrico Deed to Carrico being Cornelius Carrico and son Edward Carrico in the year 1851.  In the consideration of land, the sum of one thousand dollars payable by the said Edward Carrico to the two remaining heirs Treasy O'Brian and Ann Brewer wife of George Brewer, notes of the sum of $500.00 each payable three months after my death.  To Edward a certain piece or parasol of land in Washington Co. of Kentucky I now live on supposed to contain one hundred and thirty acres.  To assign forever to son Edward Carrico and heirs the land. 

"Treasy O'BRIAN" is our subject's married daughter, Theresa (CARRICO) O'BRYAN; "Ann BREWER" is our subject's married daughter, Ann (CARRICO) BREWER.  The use of "remaining heirs" as opposed to "other heirs" is suggestive that some heirs may be deceased.
