|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. This individual's test results are a match for several tested descendants of Peter CARRICO, the 1674 immigrant to Maryland, so while we still don't know how our subject connects to the immigrant, the fact that he does connect is now proven.|
|Secondary sources do not agree on the identy of our subject's children. I'm supplying four different lists (below), beginning with one based on my own examination of what evidence I've found so far.|
|Husband: Peter CARRICO
Birth: bef. 1765, MD
Death (based on censuses): 1810-20, presumably in Monongalia Co., VA [now Preston Co., WV]
Death (according to Morton): 1815
Migration said to be: 1786 or 1790, VA to WV with William HEBB, future father-in-law of daughter Ann Elizabeth
Y-DNA Haplogroup: J-2a4b*, a.k.a., J-M67
Brother said to be: Francis CARRICO
|Wife: Catherine __?__
Birth: 1765-1784, but probably ca. 1772
Death: aft. 1810
|Children born in Monongalia Co., VA [now Preston Co., WV]:|
CARRICO, b. 7 Apr 1792; m. Sibbeth HOLBERT
2. James CARRICO, b. ca. 1794; m. Nancy HOLBERT
3. (Daughter A) CARRICO, b. ca. 1796
4. Ann Elizabeth CARRICO, b. 25 Nov 1798; m. Thomas F. HEBB
Based on the 1810 census, Peter had two sons and two daughters. Joseph and James appear to have married sisters, which supports that they were probably brothers and making James the younger son. The age of the other daughter is a guess.
|Children based on an email from Tim Weaver:|
|1. Joseph CARRICO, b. 9 Apr 1792, Montgomery Co., MD
2. Elizabeth CARRICO, bap. 1798, Aurora Lutheran Church, Preston Co., VA [now WV]
Weaver states that the only proven children of our subject
are Joseph and Elizabeth.
|Children based on messages at GenForum:|
/ Verlinda / Violinda CARRICO, b. 12 May 1777, Prince Georges Co.,
2. Joseph CARRICO, b. 9 Apr 1792 only son
3. Ann Eliza CARRICO, b. 25 Nov 1798
Catherine is too young to be Violinda's mother; Violinda can
only be Peter's daughter if he had a prior wife and if he was born before
ca. 1755, not just before 1765. The 15-year gap between Vioilinda
and Joseph would also signal a prior wife.
|Children as given at Ken Carrico's web site:|
|1. Francis CARRICO
2. John CARRICO, b. Monongalia Co., VA; m. HOOD
3. Eliza CARRICO, b. Monongalia Co., VA
4. Prudence CARRICO, b. Monongalia Co., VA; m. FELTON
5. Melinda CARRICO, b. 12 May 1777, Prince Georges Co., MD; d. 17 Sep 1857, Aurora, Preston Co., VA
6. Joseph CARRICO, b. 7 Apr 1792, Montgomery Co., MD; d. 2 Mar 1868, Rowlesburg, Preston Co., WV
7. James CARRICO, b. ca. 1793, Monongalia Co., VA
8. Anna Eliza CARRICO, b. 25 Nov 1798, Aurora, Monongalia Co., VA; d. 11 Sep 1884, Tucker Co., WV
"Melinda" appears to be a misreading of "Violinda" in her 1850 census record.
