6.  Anon.  [n.d.]  Charles County, Maryland, Wills, Administration Accounts, Inventories, and Orphans Court Proceedings, 1777-1780.  T.L.C. Genealogy, Miami Beach, FL.  On p. 165:
1 Sep 1779.  Mr Benja Cawood Jr executor of late Mr Thomas Berry's will, 
for the money to be distributed amongst the poor, money distributed to...
James (X his mark) Carrico 13 lbs 2 sh 6 pence...
Abel (X his mark) Carrico 13 lbs 2 sh 6 pence...
It seems unlikely this is James of Peter (II) who, in the same year, 1779, bought 112 acres of Maidstone with 17,400 lbs of tobacco hardly the act of a poor man.  It also seems unlikely that this James is the young "James of John."  This alms recipient is most likely "James Sr.," our subject, which is reinforced by the fact that the other Carrico recipient is his brother, Abel.  James "Sr." would have been 86 or 87 years of age, and we know he was alive just the year before because he took the Oath of Fidelity in 1778.
