  2. John2 Carlton (Blake1) was born 1730 in VA, and died 1810 in Spartanburg SC. He married Agatha Lindsey, daughter of William Lindsey and Jane Lindsey.
  John Carlton of Brunswick County is the first family member who has been documented. He first appears as a witness for William Lindsey in May 1756. He was a neighbor of William Lindsey in Brunswick Co, VA in the 1750's. He was a young man, with wife Agatha and a daughter, Mary, born in 1753 or 1754.
  John Carlton received a grant of 130 acres of land from William Lindsey in 1757, on Wildcat Creek, in an area where William Lindsey had patented or bought much land, and sold parcels at a nominal rate to his sons and sons-in-law. The grant to John Carlton is the basis for supposing that he was also a son-in-law of William Lindsey. There was clearly a family connection--John and Agatha Carlton named a son Lindsey Carlton.
  John Carlton sold this land to Thomas Holcombe in 1760, but he, together with his wife "Agga," is found a few miles away in Lunenberg County betwen 1760 and 1768. In 1774, he appears as a taxpayer in Surry County, North Carolina.
  From 1757 to 1768 John Carlton owned farmland in Brunswick and later just across the line in Lunenburg County. A 1766 lawsuit initiated by John Carlton in Lunenburg County was discharged by "his not being an inhabitant of this colony," suggesting that he was already moving back and forth between Virginia and North Carolina. He and his family were settled in Surry Co NC by 1774.
  There are many records of John Carlton in Surry County, where he was a substantial farmer and owned land in the Deep Creek area, near Yadkinville in what is today Yadkin County. There were eleven in his household in 1787 and eight in 1790. In 1791 or 1792, he moved to Spartanburg is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
