!NOTES:B/D is 2 Dec 175(2) per his T/S, though the last digit is hard to make out. Census analysis shows he was born between 1750 and 1755, so 1752 fits just fine. A transcription made many years ago (perhaps in the 1950's or 1960's) interpreted the year as 1777 but that is clearly incorrect. The stone is hand carved and badly eroded. When I visited the cemetery in the 1990's, I was unable to find it. However it has now been located and photos are online at find-a-grave. His name is no longer visible, but the dates are visible so we know it is the right stone:

!NOTES:"Carpenter" is the English version of his original surname which was "Zimmerman". This surname is common in Germany and Switzerland. Many of this surname who came to America in the 1700's changed from Zimmerman to Carpenter at some point, though some kept the original name.;


!NOTES:Mathias Carpenter's parents are unknown. Some older undocumented genealogies show that his father was also named Mathias, but I have never seen any corroborating evidence for that, so I have no faith in it.;


!NOTES:DNA testing proves that descendants of Mathias Zimmerman/Carpenter closely match descendants of Bernhartd Zimmerman (1744 PA) who is of Swiss Descent. They also match Dr. George Zimmerman (1779 MD) and Nicholas Timmerman (c1743 NY). See the Carpenter DNA project for more information.
* This means those other Zimmermans have a common ancestry with Mathias. It could be one, two or many generations earlier.;

!TOMBSTONE:Welch (Miller) Cemetery, Ashe County, NC "M. CARPENTER, Dec 2, 1777 - Oct 17, 1835". Inscription apparently wrong or simply mis-read, and gravestone can no longer be located. Date of death probably correct, but year of birth should be between 1750 and 1755. I visited the cemetery on Sep 29, 1995 and found several really old stones. Some of them obviously once had markings on them, but have erroded so badly over the years, that they can no longer be read, his is probably one of those;
