Carter Family History and Genealogy
Carter Family History and Genealogy or History of Isaac P. Carter Family. PDF eBook English 8.18 MB. 1905. In May of 1816 frost killed off most crops that had been planted in <"xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><"xml:namespace prefix = st1 />New England. Then a large snowstorm in June of that year hit the same region bringing nearly a foot of snow, and the subsequent loss of many lives. Those plants that were lucky to survive in May failed in June since their cell walls became ruptured with the blanket of snow. This resulted in malnutrition and famine across New England. In July and August of 1816, lake and river ice were observed as far south as Pennsylvania. This historical event was referred to as: “Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death” as those who experience it would tell in their personal stories. This would be the story of Isaac P. Carter who moved his family from Maine to Ohio. They crossed the mighty Ohio River by raft with horse and wagon. This book covers 134 years of Carter Family descendants, from 1770 to 1904. A fascinating read for any family member.
