      This Pascal and William are Prime Candidates to be the sons of Presley instant; but is it Mary Ann's Wm.?
      (There is no Pascal Carter found in Virginia in the 1840 census - according to Ancestry anyway).

      1850 US Census TN Jefferson, District 13,
      Household 410: William P. Carter 40 VA Blacksmith, Jane 37 TN, with Andrew, George (deaf and dumb), Catherine, Margaret, Samuel, Sarah and Joseph.
      Household 412: William & Jane Hendricks from VA ? Oney Carter 72 VA (no relation given)
      There is no Peyton or Pascal Carter anywhere in the 1850 Jefferson Co TN census.

      1860 US Census TN Bradley, District 6, Cleveland, Household 67
      Paschal Carter 68 Blacksmith VA, Elizabeth 72 VA etc.

      See our Capt. George Carter 1733-1810 for extensive proof that he was an uncle of Richard Carter, the Halifax County VA immigrant; we entirely agree with Ms. Fournier that said Richard was a grandson of James of Stafford, where Capt. George is now proven beyond all doubt to be a son of said James. Point is, the first wife of this James was Hannah Neale and it was her family that provided for the generations of names using Daniel, Presley, Spencer and all for grandparents. Although not unique, William was also prominent in this family.
