NAMES: Lucinda Carter

Dear Wayne,

Here is the information you asked about. Lucinda's information is recorded incorrectly. She could not have been born in 1883, or she would have been born when William was 53 years old. Not likely. I think this was supposed to be 1833. We see this a lot in the cemetery listing - just a typing error. Her death date is apparently unknown. You will not below that they were married in 1853 - Lucinda would have been 20 years old, just right if her birthdate is 1833.

Cemeteries of Brown County, IL, p. 7 (Benville Cemetery, Buckhorn Township):

Lucinda J. Carter, wife of W. H. Carter (11 Aug 1883 - ?)
William H. Carter (31 Aug 1830 - 22 Apr 1900)

I went out on the web to the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index and found their marriage:

William H. Carter married Lucinda Jane Johnson 8 Feb 1853, Adams County, IL

I hope this is of help to you.

My husband has asked me to suggest to you that you might like to submit some of your family information to our webpage if it is in a format that can be made available to others. Let us know if this interests you.

In case you have need to look up an Illinois marriage, here is the web address of the site I used:
