Kindred Carter

Kindred Carter (c. 1750-1800) came to Georgia from the 
Bertie-Edgecombe-Hertford area of northeastern North Carolina where his 
family had lived for several generations.

He was of the 5th generation in descent from Thomas Carter, Sr. who came in 
1637 from England to Isle of Wight County, Virginia.  

Thomas Carter's only known child was Thomas, Jr., who married Magdalene Moore 
and left a will in 1710.  In that will, Thomas, Jr. did not name all of his 
children, but Moore Carter (c. 1680-1741) who married Jane and moved to Bertie 
County, North Carolina, is believed to have been his son.  Moore left a will 
naming a son Isaac who married Ruth and died after 1790.

Isaac and Ruth were the parents of Kindred and James, among others.
Kindred and James both came to Georgia.

Kindred Carter settled in Richmond County, on the frontier of the new state, 
along Little Germany creek.  This land is now part of McDuffie County, 
approximately 35 miles west of Augusta, Georgia.  At his death in 1800, his 
estate listed four heirs:

James, b. 1773 in North Carolina.

I know that an Isaac Carter (landowner of Bertie Co) connects with my 
Cullen and Cader just don't know how they connect.
I really was hoping that if I found the will of Cullen Carter it might 
shed some light on things.

Blackwell-Carter-Midyette House, 1989.

(Photo by Kay Midgett-Sheppard)

This remarkable rural Italianate house lies at the westward boundary of the 
Fairfield Historic District which is part of a 640-acre patent to James Clayton 
in 1757. In the late 1850's, David Carter, Jr. commissioned Cason Emery Swindell 
to build this home for his daughter, Laura Elizabeth (1838-1912), upon her 
marriage to Edward L. Blackwell (1830-1870). One of Fairfield's earliest ornate 
Victorian designs, the house is set off by the extensive lawn with a backdrop of 
pecan trees and is distinguished by its tall, stately proportions. The one-story 
entrance porch reiterates the Italianate decoration of the two-story block; drop 
pendant brackets repeat those of the main roofline and fluted porch posts with 
bracketed capitals mimic the corner boards. Sidelights and a transom in a frame 
of fluted pilasters and consoles flank the front door. The transom retains its 
original panes of glass painted in a floral motif which originally also appeared 
in the sidelights. The gracefully curving staircase with turned balusters is 
similar to that of the Patrick Simmons House. Several interior doors retain their 
original painted graining. An octagonal motif is carried throughout the house in 
the shape of the chimney stack, the exterior panels of the front door, and the 
slanted newel post. Unique to Hyde County is the hall across the front and two 
rooms side-by-side behind. The kitchen-dining room was moved next door where it 
was enlarged for a dwelling. Except for the extension of an original shed at the 
west end of the rear elevation across the entire facade, the house has remained 
more or less intact.

In 1902, Laura Carter Blackwell sold her house and property in Fairfield to her 
brother, Henry Clay Carter. In his will dated 31 May 1919, Henry Clay Carter left 
the Blackwell farm (about 50 acres) and house to his daughter Jennie C. Midyette. 
In June 1932, Jennie (Jane Lindsay) Carter Midyette and husband Allen Burrus 
Midyette sold the house and four acres of land to their son Allen Lindsay Midyette. 
At the death of Allen Lindsay Midyette, the house and property passed to his widow, 
Gertrude, and sons Norfleet and Allen Midyette. In 1993, Karl and Gladys Stimpson 
of Pfafftown, Forsythe County, N.C. purchased the house and property from Norfleet 
and Allen Midyette.

In recent years, the Stimpson's refurbished an existing east side entrance to the 
front hall, installed a new kitchen, added a half bath under the stairwell in the 
entry hall and a full bath on the second floor, refinished all of the heart pine 
floors, repaired the plaster and installed crown moldings throughout the house, 
and added central heat and air conditioning. In addition, they made a window 
covered with plexiglass in the floor and on one wall so that visitors can view 
the original construction of the building. On the exterior of the house, the 
original shutters were removed, repaired, and rehung and the entire house received 
a new coat of paint. This is, once again, the beautiful home it once was when owned 
by Edward L. and Laura Elizabeth Carter Blackwell.
