      John Carter lived apparently on or near the Cornwall line, as did several other members of the family. Probably his legal residence was Cornwall, as is indicated by the following records: "Feb., 1778, John Carter, Elijah Hopkins and Reuben Fox, all of Cornwall are annexed to the society of East Greenwich in Kent."

      He served in the Revolutionary war, enlisting from Cornwall, as did also two of his sons, John and Jirah. He was also Corporal in the 4th Co., (Capt. Whiting) 2d Regt., French and Indian war, campaign of 1762, and had probably served previously as private in a company raised in Hebron, Ct. (See Conn. Hist. Soc. Collections, vols. X and XI.)
