Dear Ms. Headley,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
You also may wish to review the Library of Congress; African American Slavery and Bondage; CDOs on Slaves; and Free People of Color in Louisiana websites for background information and/or additional resources.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Welcome to History Hub. I would love to help you get the answers you want.
Would you happen to have any other information, specifically birth dates (months and year) to ensure that we can get you the most accurate information possible? After looking through the Ancestry website using the information you have provided, there are just too many possibilities. I found a public member tree that includes the last names you provided but can't be positive without other information.
Do you know if Betsey is short for Elizabeth?
Have you found any other relations? Possibly, siblings of either Melinda/ Lucinda or Betsey?
Where did William Carter?
I hope I can help you with getting the answer you are asking. I'm sorry for asking so many questions I know how research can be frustrating at times.
In the meanwhile, I will continue to look into Lucinda and Melinda Carter. Hopefully, that will lead us somewhere.
I look forward to your response.
