Catherine __?__
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]:
1.  Joseph 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.
[Elizabeth appears to be the Ann Elizabeth / Elizabeth Ann / Anna Eliza of others.]

Children based on messages at GenForum:
1.  Virlinda / Verlinda / Violinda CARRICO, b. 12 May 1777, Prince Georges Co., MD
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.
•  If Violinda truly was born in Princes Georges Co., MD, then the most likely candidates for her parents are Bartholomew & Winifred (PADGET) CARRICO, as the only CARRICOs known to be in the county that early.

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.

These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 10-15 1794-1800 = James (b. ca. 1794)
1 male 16-25 1784-1794 = Joseph (b. 1792)
1 male 45 or over by 1765 = Peter
2 females 9 or under 1800-1810 = Ann Eliza (b. 1798)
= Daughter A (b. ca. 1796)
1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Wife
One of the daughters has to be tallied in the wrong age class; and, if one was, it's most likely both were.

5b.  Samuel T. Wiley.  1882.  History of Preston County (West Virginia).  The Journal Printing House, Kingwood, WV [reprinted 1968 and 1993 by McClain Printing Co., Parsons, WV]:
p. 427 Peter Carrico and William Hebb, a Revolutionary soldier, came from Eastern Virginia in 1790.  Carrico settled where Gabriel Pulliam lives.

5c.  Oren Frederic Morton.  1914.  A History of Preston County, West Virginia.  The Journal Publishing Co., Kingwood, WV:
p. 331 Peter, Francis, and Catherine Carrico arrived in 1786 on the Pulliam farm at the mouth of Wolf Creek.  It is not known that their parents came with them.  Of four brothers, one settled in Culpeper, one in Charles County, Maryland, and one in Kentucky.  The sons of Francis went West. Peter had one son, Joseph, whose six sons lived mainly in Reno and Lyon.
p. 419 [poster is paraphrasing] …Peter is listed as being a brother to Francis and having 2 children, Joseph and Anne E., b. 1798.  His wife's name is not listed.
The CARRICOs did split up into roughly these groups:  one in northeastern Virginia (Prince William, Fauquier, and Culpeper Cos.), the apparent descendants of William CARRICO I; one in southwestern Virginia (Grayson and surrounding counties), the apparent descendants of Abel CARRICO I; one to Kentucky, the apparent descendants of Peter CARRICO II; and with some remaining in Charles Co., MD, their place of origin in the U.S.  However, the split up occurred one, two, or three generations back from our subject.  Was there another split up with his generation?  Son Joseph did have six surviving sons, and they did settle in the Reno Twp. area.
