Norris Carter was born
exact date that Norris Carter came
to the frontier is unknown. It is known that he signed the petition for forming
Russell County, VA. on

Rev John Pendleton was born between 1782/1792 & was the son of Benjamin Pendleton, a Revolutionary War veteran who left Amherst County Virginia during the 1780’s and settled in southwest Virginia along the Clinch River of what is now Scott County. The Pendleton ancestors originally came from Norwich, England and settled in Virginia during the 1660's.
Benjamin married Frances Carter who was killed in 1791 during an indian attack at Mocassin Gap near the Clinch River. He is believed to have married his wife’s sister Sarah Carter a few months later. Frances & Sarah Carter were daughters of Peter & Judith (Norris) Carter who also came from the Amherst County, VA area, settlling in the Clinch River area at same time as the Pendleton family.
JOSEPH CARTER was the fourth son of Peter Carter and Judith (Norris) Carter. His tombstone in the Carter Cemetery at Rye Cove in Scott County, Virginia, shows 'Joseph Carter Died August 16th 1808 aged about 75. " However, his father wrote in his Prayer Book that his son Joseph was born "4th September 1736" and I am using that birth date, which would mean Joseph lacked 19 days being 72 years old when he died in 1808.

Further on in the commentary by Thomas W. Carter he states:
2 Quest)"The Devils Race Path Branch is a small branch emptying into a creek called (page 47-1) Stock Creek, one half mile below the Natural Tunnel through which the creek passes, a great natural curiosity: Two & half miles above where it mouths in to Clinch River. The branch heads near the top of a ridge called Purchess Ridge & runs between two spurs of said ridge, Rising abruptly on either side to a considerable height; the bed of the branch being the bed of the path which was very difficult to pass over. About 1790, a man by the name of James Paine (James Paine/Payne was a brother to my ancestor John Payne, son of Reuben Payne- Joe Payne) made a settlement at the mouth of said branch. Another man by the name of Simon Dotson at the head; Paine's house became the Resort of bad men, Dotson made whiskey & sold to those men until it became dangerous for travelers to pass through the gorge & Received the name of Devils Race Path Branch.
interesting point that the DNA study has discovered is that if the claim of one
of the DNA donor’s is correct that he is a descendant of the Watauga Signer, Col. John Carter,
father of Landon Carter, then there is no relationship to either the Robert “King” Carter line of the this Thomas Carter
line. Carter County, Tennessee name was
taken from Landon Carter and

the technical side of things, we have this from the website of the Carter
Cousins: (their whole methodolgy is in serious
question - questioned by others, as well as ourselves). Just from a
sample of one each, these "proven" lineages are very dubious, and is
the reason why several researchers have ignored this data:
17720 John / Robert (Corotoman) -- 13 22 14 10 13 14 11 14 12 12 11 29 .....These two really suspect, have to

19789 John (Watauga) E3b -- 13 24 13 11 16 18 11 12 12 13 11 30 ...... Not even the same Haplo Group!
Having said that, the cluster of the several donors for Capt. Thomas appears credible and reasonably consistent; there are two rather well documented entries for members of the separate Carter Society

Dinner Keynote Address by: Hodding Carter III, President and CEO, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
April 22, 2002, The Carolina Inn, Chapel Hill, NC HODDING CARTER III: - that the average reporter does not understand what it is that's necessary to make the payroll, to make the good edifice, to make the thing that he wants. It is that in fact those who control too many of the edifices have actually come to believe that Wall Street has wisdom, and that that wisdom should instruct our business.
Let me just say something categorical. There are vast enterprises which reverse that successfully. They tell Wall Street what to believe about what they do, and Wall Street, a prostitute, does precisely what it is told because the money is there. That we, to believe for one moment that a Wall Street which consecrated an Enron, which believed in Arthur Andersen, and which touted the dot-com bubble is able to tell people in journalism what it is that the system of capitalism demands is a perversion of capitalism, it's a perversion of journalism, and it's a perversion of the notion of journalistic integrity.
HODDING CARTER III: The truth of the matter is, as in most of the enterprises which Wall Street chooses to be an expert on, they neither understand nor care. They care about one thing, and those are levels of profit margin.
