Thomas B. Carr, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Thomas B. Carr might describe his life as follows.

My first wife was Frances Ragland, a daughter of Thomas Ragland, whom I married in Halifax County 26 August (bond) 1805.  We had four children before she died: Elizabeth, Jane, Frances, and William Carr.
Rev. David Street, an Episcopalian minister, officiated when Nancy Susan Abbott and I married 24 May 1815. 
My father’s 1833 will specifically mentioned Nancy Carr, “widow of my son Thomas Carr and her four children…,” Milinett, Spencer Morgan, Margaret Muse, and Thomas Abbott Carr. As you can see, I was dead then, having passed on 11 April 1828.
Nancy was living with her daughter Margaret Muse Carr in 1850.  Twenty years later, at age 74, she was living with her son, Thomas Carr. Forty-five years a widow, Nancy died 31 December 1873.

Francis Ragland, presumably Francis’ brother was guardian of Jane, Betsy, Fanny, and William Carr in 1821.  Although their father was still living, they were presumably heirs to an estate.
