Thanks to many cousins for sharing information for this web site. This is a research site and is likely to include some errors and omissions. Please help us add to and correct this history.
Major reference works cited here: "The Hornadays, Root and Branch", by Quinn Hornaday, J.D. and Aline G. Hornaday, J.A.; and "Henry Cavinis - The Immigrant Infant and Some of His Descendants" by Alloa Caviness Anderson 1971.
William A. Carr, son of Joseph Carr, is mentioned in the autobiography of Col. David Fanning, a Tory soldier during the American Revolution. David Fanning married Sarah Carr, said to be William's sister. This is not likely, unless there are William Carrs in two families in the immediate area at the same time (which is, of course, possible). David Fanning and Sarah Carr named their son Ross Currie Carr, and the family moved to Canada shortly after the war.

Early Guilford Co., NC and Randolph Co. deeds mentioning this Joseph Carr:
4 March 1773 - Jennings Thompson and Elizabeth to Joseph CARR 200 acres on north side Deep River near Flatt Creek. Signed Jennings (x) Thompson, Elizabeth (x) Thompson; Wit.: William Searcy, Sr., Windsor Pearce

8 Mar 1794 - Nathaniel Mullins to Rawley Spinks, both of Randolph Co. for 70 pds. 200a. adj. Kerr. Signed Nathaniel Mullins; Wit: William Kerr, Robert Kerr
The only certain relationships proven there are that Joseph is the father of William Carr. Otherwise we know that Rolly Spinks married one of Joseph's daughters and that Robert Carr is another son. The Hornaday and Williams connections look good, but the Caviness connection is "proven" by Caviness researchers connecting to William Carr. The daughter Carr who married John Williams is likely a grand-daughter as identified in the will of William Austin Carr's wife, Susannah (unknown).
Thanks to Marjorie M. Barron for forwarding info from the Hornaday family about Joseph Carr's kin. Sept. 1998. Some of this info is also from WFT 2 - 0949. She states:
"I have no idea who the wife Phebe of Joseph's Last Will &Testament is, suspect she was a second wife. He was definitely married to Jane in 1772. Guilford Co, NC DB 1, p188, called Jane Carr twice in the body of the deed but it looks to me like she may have signed it as Jean Carr, hard to tell for sure. In Nov 1772 Joseph Carr deeded the land to Jennings Thompson (prob from Granville Co, NC), and in Mar 1773 Jennings Thompson deeded the same land back to Joseph Carr. "
"The first time I find Joseph Carr mentioned in NC is 1764/65 in both Cumberland and Orange counties.
I believe that our Joseph Carr is the son of Joseph & Elizabeth (Coleman) Carr and grandson of William & Sarah (_____) Carr of Westrmoreland Co, Va. I also think that our Joseph Carr may have been married to Jane Reid, dau of Joseph Reid who died in Fairfax Co, VA in 1750. " (end of quote)
Randolph County Genealogy Society Journal, Vol. V, No. 1 1981 Winter
There is a reference to a 1785 petition signed by Joseph (JC) CARR. A petition to move public buildings, stocks, etc to the center of the county was signed by Joseph CARR and Robt. CARR along with several SPINKSes.
pg. 18, 25, 26 "Randolph County Tax List 1785 - List taken by William Richards, Esq., Capt. Garner's District:
Joseph CARR 1 white poll 2 black polls 700 acres
Robert CARR 1 white poll 400 acres"
23 Nov 1804 JOSEPH CARR to son ROBERT CARR of Hancock Co, Ga a man named Hardy & wife Alice & a girl named Nina. To son WILLIAM CARR of Randolph Co, NC a man named Frank and his wife Nan and a boy named Randal. To SIL ROLLY SPINKS of Randolph Co, NC a woman named Phillis, a girl Mill and one called Little Pat. To grandson ISIAH HORNADY of Randolph Co, NC a girl named Selax. Hancock Co, GA DB G
The Carr property in NC was adjacent Benjamin Williams and John Williams in 1811. Williams is the common name of sons-in-law and a grandson-in-law was John Williams. (looking for info on this Williams family, which has eluded me so far). Note: Flat Creek intersects deep river barely inside southeastern Randolph Co., a couple of miles west of Bennett, Chatham Co., North Carolina.
Info from other sources:
According to "Uncle Tobe Carr's little black book" (Lewis Perry Carr b 1836, g-grandson)
William Austin Carr is said to descend from Patrick Carr of Ireland, who emigrated through Savannah, GA, and who resided briefly in North Carolina. Patrick Carr of Bertie Co., NC is in this file, at about the right time. No known sons named Joseph Carr in that family, but notice the grandson below. Known descendants of Patrick Carr of Bertie County also lived in Yalobusha Co., MS adjacent to a family of Pearson which married cousins of my Carr family (I have Pearson ancestors). Uncle Tobe may have thought he was a cousin of this other NC family. This family is also in my file, but I think it is not too likely an ancestor family.
Another Joseph Carr / Joseph Kerr died in Randolph Co., NC, and his will is in Book 1, page 2 (1779). It does not appear the two families are closely related, as this Joseph appears to be Quaker and a pacifist while the family of the other Joseph includes a Tory soldier. It is included here as a reference only.
"In the name of God Amen I Joseph Kerr of Guilford County and State of North Carolina being weak of body but of sound mind and memory do this 23rd day of January in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred & seventy nine make this my laste Will and Testamente in ... following firste I resign my body to the Dark and my Soul to God who gave it to be Decently Buried at the Descretion of my Executor in the graveyard at ... said expence to be paid firste of the whole of my estate with my lawfull Debts that is ... Due ----
"Item my Will is the remainder of my estate both real and personal be equally divided share and share alike between my brother John Kerr; William Kerr; and sister Mary Dougan and James Kerr and Nathaniel Kerr each brother and sister to receive ... and share alike after my estate is sold ...
"Item I constitute and appointe my brother Nathaniel Kerr whole executor of my estate both real and personal to take care and see the same performed accordingly to my ... interests and meaning in Witness whereof I the said Joseph Kerr have to this my last Will set my hand and seal the day and year above written."

David Fanning in Chatham County, NC and was a Lieutenant on the 1st of Sept. 1781. He was promoted to Captain and was "Now in N. Providence West Indies 28th of Nov. 1789." He apparently got married on the same day that Col. David Fanning did, as in "The Narrative of Col. David Fanning" by Lindley S. Butler, David indicates that "myself and Capt. Carr were married ... I took my wife and concealed her in the woods with Capt. Carrs ..."
An inventory of the notes and bonds belonging to the estate of William Carr, certified and returned the 6th of Aug 1838 indicates Enoch Spinks, Lewis Spinks, John Craven, William Lane, Aaron Tyson among others. The comment "several of these are Moore County names" appears on an extract of this document in th Spring, 1994 issue of the Randolph Co., NC Genealogical Journal (Vol XVIII #1)
Thanks to Dolores Blomstrom Dolores.Blomstrom@tlc.state.tx.us for most of this information: William Austin Carr's grave is in Randolph Co., NC where son Henry Carr was said to have been in 1783. Cemetery info is at the bottom of this record, before children are listed. Randolph County, NC was formed from Guilford Co., NC in 1779.

There were also sites (1) thru (12) and (14) thru (21) that were not Carrs that I've omitted.
From the Society's journal Volume IV, No. 4, 1980, Summer:
"The following is a list of wills (originals) from Randolph County, N.C., found at Archives & History, Raleigh, North Carolina. These wills were compared with the Will Books, the book and page is given. Key: name; date on Raleigh file; book and page in Randolph Co.'s Will Book, date of will, (date will was probated)."
"Carr, Susannah - 1859; B.11 p. 302, 1844 (1859)." - This will does not list Henry Carr as a son. He lived until 1842, and the will was written in 1844.
Dolores Blomstrom (thanks Dolores!)
The following information may be relevant to another William Carr, as overwhelming info indicates that this William A. Carr was a Tory.
William Carr entered the Revolutionary War at an early age.
Notes for Susannah [Unknown]:
Was her surname Alexander or Austin? Jones? No evidence, just speculation.
Lidd Jones was buried at the same cemetery with William A. Carr and Susannah. He (she?) died aged 78 on October 7, 1837. That would give a birth-date of about 1759, too young to be the mother or father of Susannah.
The will of Susannah Carr does NOT mention a son Henry Carr, who died in 1842 (2 years before will was signed). It mentions:
"my four children (viz) John Carr, Jane Williams, Susannah Needham and Nancy Williams ..."
The will was signed November 6, 1844 and was executed August term 1859, Randolph Co., NC (Randolph County Will Book 11, page 302).
Children of William Carr and Susannah [Unknown] are:
+ 30 i. Henry Alexander3 Carr, born 20 May 1783 in poss. Randolph Co., NC; died 08 Oct 1842 in Jackson, Hinds, MS.
31 ii. John Carr.
+ 32 iii. Susannah Carr, born Abt. 1791.
33 iv. Jane Carr, born Aft. 1780. She married John Williams; born Bef. 1780.
Notes for John Williams:
He sold his land in Brower Township and moved to Gibson Co., TN in 1818, then later moved to Hardeman Co., TN.
+ 34 v. Nancy Carr, born Abt. 1796 in NC.
8. Susannah2 Carr (Joseph1 ) was born 05 Mar 1774, and died 09 Oct 1827. She married (1) Isaiah Hornaday Abt. 1788 in Randolph Co., NC, son of John Hornaday and Christian [Unknown]. He was born 1768 in Cane Creek, NC, and died 1790 in NC. She married (2) Rolly A. Spinks 02 Jun 1791 in prob. Randolph Co., NC. He was born Bef. 1775 in poss. Randolph Co., NC, and died Aft. 22 Apr 1838 in Jones Co., GA.
Notes for Susannah Carr:
See: "The Hornadays, Root and Branch" by Quinn Hornaday and Aline G. Hornaday.
Note; Several DAR members were descended from Susannah, and claimed her father to be William Carr of Duplin Co., NC who enlisted in Capt. James Love's company 1778 and 1779 served under Capt. Jonathan Taylor. In 1834 he was placed on the pension roll for six months actual service as private, North Carolina line. He was born in Duplin county 1754 and in 1840 was living in that county.
While I think that is wrong, my proof may be less than convincing.
Notes for Rolly A. Spinks:
The family of Raleigh Spinks or Rolley Spinks is in this file, in this county at the right time. I am unable to determine which Rolly Spinks married Susannah Carr.
There are land records which show that the land in Morgan Co. GA. was transferred from William Carr and Benjamin Sanford to Rolly Spinks of Randolph, N.C. Other land records in Jones County connect Rolly to William Carr.
