Cornelius CARRICO, the younger
Teresa O'BRYAN
NOTICE:  a patrilineal descendant of our subject is participating in the CARRICO Y-chromosome DNA Surname Project.  His test results match those of descendants of Peter CARRICO I, the 1674 immigrant to Maryland.
Husband:  Cornelius CARRICO
Birth:  1797/8, Charles Co., MD
Death apparently:  aft. 1850 census
Y-DNA Haplogroup (Kit #107978):  J-2a4b = J-M67
Father said to beHenry CARRICO
Mother said to beSusanna __?__
Marriage:  24 May 1823, Washington Co., KY
Migration:  ca. 1837, to Fancy Farm, Graves Co., KY
Wife:  Teresa / Theresa O'BRYAN
Birth:  1796/7, Washington Co., KY
Father:  Ignatius O'BRYAN
Mother:  Rhoda A. "Rhoday" WITHERINGTON

In the 1850 census, Cornelius's wife's name is given as "Lucretia."  Either we accept that the enumerator erred on hearing "Theresa" and put down "Lucretia," which is certainly possible, or her name was Teresa Lucretia, or Cornelius remarried by 1850.

Children born in Washington Co., KY:
1.  Mary Ann CARRICO, b. 1824/5
2.  Florida Ann "Rhody" CARRICO, b. 1825-30

6.  Ignatius Francis CARRICO, b. 31 Jan 1834
7.  Benedict Joseph CARRICO, b. Jul 1836

Mary is said to have been born in 1844, which she obviously was not; she is also said to have died in 1844, which she obviously did not she is alive (æ 25) and unmarried in the 1850 census.

"Lucretia" appears to be the enumerator's "mis-hearing" of "Theresa."  "E.F." must be Ignatius Francis and "B.J." must be Benedict Joseph.  Who is Thomas?

7.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com), including this item in the "Notes" of one file:
WASHINGTON COUNTY KENTUCKY DEEDS compiled by Faye Sea Sanders The Filson Club 976.9941 S2159 V.3 page 2 D-22
26 August 1811 Indenture between William Allen, Sr. and wife Catherine, and Cornelius Carrico, all of Washington County, Kentucky for $360.00 conveying 90 acres on Cartwright Creel bounded by Peter Powell. Signed: William Allen, Catherine Allen W - none
In 1834 Cornelius Carrico, husband of Theresa O'Bryan, paid $400 to "the widow and heirs of Francis H. O'Bryant (sp) deceased (as paid by O'Bryant as appears by his bond dated November 2 1827)".  The land was described as "60 acres on west side of Allen's Run of Cartwright's Creek" Teresy O'Bryant was named as the widow.  Heirs included Edward P. O'Bryan, James R., Ignatius D, and Francis P. O'Bryan.  Witnesses to the Deed of Land transfer were: J. B. McLain, Edward Carrico, and Edward O'Bryan.
Again, Theresa (O'BRYAN) CARRICO is our subject's wife while the widow, Teresy (CARRICO) O'BRYAN(T), is our subject's sister-in-law.
