Carr Sr lived west side of Sowest Mtn so of Stony Point. Was the first settler by the name Carr on the No side of the Sowest Mtn. A Pioneer Settler on the Little Mountain. He lived on land which had been owned by his father, also known as Chestnut Mountains. The above land probably given to Gideon Carr Sr by his uncle Major thomas Carr, if he would marry and settle down. Gideon Carr Sr's original will 19 Mar 1776 destroyed with other county records when Tarleton's Cavalry invaded Charlottesville, Va. seeking to capture Gov Jefferson, June 1781. Gideon's sons, Thomas and Micajah had the witness, Chris Clark, 14 Apr 1783, swear that the copy was a true copy of Gideon's last will. it could be assumed from this that the will had been probated at the time of the invasion, 1781 but the will was not recorded until 1793/4. This could have occurred because land deeds were often updated some years after a sale, inheritance, etc. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
