!NOTES:Birth date from Bible Record shared with me by Werner Howald, 2016.
"Edward Carter was born May the 29 in the year of our Lord 1761
Marey Carter his wife (of Edward Carter) was born May the 20 in year of our Lord 1758 her father his surname was Brown Joseph";

!NOTES:The bible record contradicts other researchers claims that her father was Daniel Brown. It was probably assumed that Mary Brown was a sister of Jane Brown (proven d/o Daniel) who married John Carter. Brothers marrying sisters was common enough. However, the Bible record contradicts that, and does explain why Edward was dismissed for marrying a non Quaker as Daniel Brown and family were Quakers. Apparently Joseph Brown was not.;
