  • Notes 
    • Carter Genealogy, p. 19;
      3. THOMAS3 CARTER (Thomas,2 Rev. Thomas1) was born in Woburn June 13, 1668. In 1710 his father conveyed land to him on "Reading Line," the deed being signed also by his mother, "Margaret Carter." In a deed dated 1611 he is called "Thomas Carter of Reading, Wheelwright."

      He married (1) at Reading, Feb. 19, 1713, Abigail Locke of Woburn. Feb. 19, 1720/21, Thomas Carter "owned ye covenant" in Weston, Mass., and his three children, Thomas, Abigail and Elizabeth, were baptized. Two other children, Anna and Benjamin, were also baptized in Weston later.

      Thomas Carter's brother Daniel was living in Weston in 1723,--perhaps earlier,-- and had several children born there.

      Oct. 20, 1726, William Smith of Weston sells to Thomas Carter of Weston, land in Hebron, Ct., and Dec. 12, 1726, Thomas Carter and wife Abigail "of Hebron" convey land and house in Weston, Mass. From the above and other records, it would appear that Thomas Carter removed from Reading to Weston about 1718 or 1719, where he remained until 1726, when he removed to Hebron, Ct. (Middlesex, Mass., Co. Records, vol. 44, p. 140; Hebron, Ct., Land Records, vol. 2, p. 48.)

      April 10, 1729, Abigail (Locke) Carter died leaving five children, and Dec. 9, 1730, Thomas3 Carter married (2) Sarah4 Gilbert, dau. of Samuel3 Gilbert (Samuel,2 Jonathan1) and Mercy, dau. of Isaac and Sarah (Boltwood) Warner.

      Page 21

      Samuel3 Gilbert (Samuel,2 Jonathan1) father of Sarah4 (Gilbert) Carter, was born in Hartford Feb. 5, 1687/8. He married, (date unknown; marriage proved by deed of land and Hist. of Hadley), Mercy4 Warner, born at Deerfield, Mass., Sept. 25, 1785, daughter of Isaac3 and Sarah (Boltwood) Warner. Isaac3 Warner was the son of Andrew2 Warner of Cambridge, Mass., Hartford, Ct., and Hadley, Mass., who died Dec. 18, 1684. His first wife is unknown, but he m. (2) Esther, (d. 1693), widow of Thomas Selden of Hartford. Andrew2 Warner was son of John1 Warner of Hatfield, Gloucester, Eng. Isaac3 Warner, born about 1645, died in Deerfield, Mass., 1690/1; married May 31, 1666, Sarah, daughter of Robert and Mary ((???)) Boltwood. Robert Boltwood was from Essex County, Eng.; in Connecticut, 1748; lived in part of Wethersfield now included in Glastonbury; removed to Hadley, Mass., where he died April 6, 1684. His wife, Mary Warner, died May 14, 1687. (Warner Gen.; Hist. of Hadley; Memo. Hist. of Hartford.)

      Samuel3 Gilbert died May 1, 1760, and is buried in the Gilead, Ct., cemetery, as is also his wife, Mercy Warner, who died Oct. 31, 1759. It is supposed by some that after his marriage he lived for some time in Colchester, and it has been stated, on what original authority the writer does not know, that some of his children were born there, particularly his son, Samuel,4 whose birth is given as at Colchester, Oct. 16, 1711. But no such entry is to be found on the town records of Colchester.

      The following entries are, however, found in the ancient records of Lebanon, Ct., and seem to prove that at this time at least, he was living within the limits of that town, and that the son Samuel was born there in 1712:

      "Abilena Gilbert Daughter of Sam?? & Mercy Gilbert was Born March the 10th A. D. 1710.

      Page 22

      Sarah Gilbert was Born March the 10th 1710.

      Samuel Gilbert was born May the first A. D. 1712."

      Another son, John, was baptized there Nov. 21, 1713/14, also Elisha, Feb. 16, 1716/17, although he is said to have been born in Hebron. The towns adjoined. About this time the family seems to have removed to Hebron, as the other children are said to have all been born there, probably in Gilead parish, where the family of Thomas3 Carter resided.

      The other children of Samuel3 and Mercy (Warner) Gilbert are: Mary, b. 1719; Hannah, b. 1722; Ezra, b. 1726; Mercy, b. 1728; Ebenezer, b. 1732.

      The will of Samuel3 Gilbert is found at Colchester, and in it he names his five sons as above, but merely refers to his "five daughters," not mentioning any of them by name.

      The names of the daughters as given above, and their husbands, are all found, however, in the will of their brother, Lieut. John Gilbert, which is on record at Andover, Ct. Lieut. John Gilbert died Jan. 19, 1794, in "80th year," and is buried with his wife, Abigail4 Carter, (5), in Gilead cemetery.

      Much interesting information concerning the Gilbert family may be found in the New Eng. Hist. and Gen. Reg., vol. iv, p. 229 et seq., and p. 339 et seq., and in a pamphlet published in 1902, entitled: "One of the Gilberts of New England, A Descendant of Jonathan Gilbert of Hartford, Ct." See also Champion Gen.

      Sarah Gilbert Carter died in Warren in 1796, and her tombstone is found in the cemetery there. The inscription reads:
      In memory of
      Mrs Sarah Cart
      er wife of Tho
      mas Carter who
      Departed this life
      July the 12th 1796
      in the 88th year of
      her age.
