  • ID: I1589
  • Name: Peleg Carr 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 20 APR 1763 in Jamestown, RI (Newport Co) 2 3 4 5
  • Reference Number: 127117
  • Death: 14 DEC 1822
  • _FOOT: Rhode Is HS Jan 1961, Monahon et al article 6
  • Note:
    NOTE: The following record begs some questions. The record shows Peleg's wife and children's birth and death records through 1833. While at least one record (Edson Carr's Carr Family Records, possibly the Monahan piece from 1961) shows Peleg and Sarah with more children, those additional children do not appear here. It isn't clear why there would be death records dated 1817 and 1833, yet the other children's births aren't listed. One conclusion is that they weren't their children after all. This record draws an additional barrier line between the two groups of children. Pat
