Excerpt from History of Isaac P. Carter Family and Their Descendants
This little book is dedicated to the descendants of Isaac P. and Joanna (Gay) Carter in the hope that in the future some one who is more capable will take it up and write a more complete history of the family than I have been able to do.
I have written several letters in my endeavor to find out who our ancestors were, and where they came from, and have only succeeded in getting the names of my great grand-parents, Edward Carter and Esther Powers. In getting the names and date of birth, marriage and death of others, I have been dependant on other friends, and I am very thankful to them for their services; and while there may be some mistakes, and some of the history came from father to son, in the main I am satisfied that it is very near correct.
Isaac P. Carter and his children spent their lives in a new country with but little of this world's goods and I have tried to show the conditions of life that surrounded them and the hardships and inconveniences of that life with only the bare necessaries of life; and especially the labor the female portion had to perform in preparing food and clothing for the family and the poor chance they had for an education and religious instructions.
