Searching for information on Richard CARVER and his father James CARVER. Richard was born c1764 Albemarle Co., VA. He emigrated to Bedford Co. at the age of 12, from there to Spartanburg Dist., SC c1792 and from there to Pendleton Dist. (now Pickens Co.), SC sometime after 1817, where he lived the remainder of his life. Much of this information comes from Richard's Rev. War pension application (enlisted 1781 in Washington Co., VA), including his father's name.
Richard probably had several children but the only one for which I have any proof is William CARVER, who was born abt. 1796 in Spartanburg Dist., SC. Richard was living with William in the 1850 census for Pickens Dist., SC. William later moved to Rabun Co., GA.
It is believed that Joseph CARVER and Thomas CARVER (who were listed in several censuses in the same area as Richard) may be brothers or otherwise related to Richard.
Any help with these Carver or allied families would be appreciated.
