This is Research, not a finished product. This is a compilation of my work, and other peoples submissions. There are placements in the database that are made to keep people together while I research where their proper placement should be in the database. Use this information as a lead, not an answer.

      Text: Ezekiel Carter, son of Abraham, was born 5 March 1780 in Pennsylvania, or over the line in what is now West Virginia. He died 24 February 1853 in Greene County, Tennessee. Ezekiel and Martha Stanley were married 27 November 1800, and to their union were born children: Jacob A. 1801, Daniel B. 1803, Joel 1805, Sarah 1807, Anna 1810, John E. 1812, Priscilla 1815, Abraham H. 1817, Hila 1819, Ezekiel Jr. 1822, William 1824, and Talitha C. 1826.
    3. Title: Abraham Carter of Greene County, Tennessee by Sylvia Brooks
      Text: Ezekiel Carter, son of Abraham and our ancestor, was born 25 March 1780. On the 1850 census, Ezekiel says he was born in Pennsylvania. However, on the 1880 census, his sons Abraham and William said their father was born in Virginia; so possibly they had learned the old land claim lay over the line in what is now West Virginia.
      Ezekiel was brought to Greene County when a baby, riding in a basket secured to the pack-saddle, at a time when babies were taught not to cry by holding their noses; as a faint cry might reveal their hiding place when Indians were near. He grew up on Lick Creek, and when a young man served in the militia. He was married 27 November 1800 to Martha (Patsy) Stanley. In 1836, he was one of the trustees of Carter Station meeting house and campground. He died 24 February 1853 and is buried at Carter Station, Albany, Tennessee.
      Written on Martha’s tombstone located at Carter Station is: Mrs. Patsy Carter, daughter of Moses and Mary Stanley, Born 28 April 1782, Converted 19 June 1822, Died 3 November 1857. Martha was born in Virginia. Her mother’s name may have been Byrd, and we believe she was the grand-daughter of William and Judith Stanley of (now) Franklin county, Virginia. In 1850 there was a Judy Stanley living with Martha whom we think was her sister. After Martha’s death, Judy 1805-1877, lived with Aunt Hila McMillan, and is buried at Carter Station.
