Dear Casey,
The three brothers that immigrated from Wales in 1721, according to my copy of "A HISTORY OF THE CALLAHAM AND CARWILE FAMILIES", were named Zachariah, Josiah, and Hezekiah. One, it goes on to say, is said to have returned to his homeland after a disappointing courtship with a young lady from Virginia. The other settled on Falling River in a section known today as Campbell County.I assume that the third brother was Zachariah and that he was the father of the Zachariah Carwile born in Goochland County, Virgina, 1750. The book doesn't state which Carwile immigrant returned to Wales and which, other than Zachariah, stayed in Virginia. No mention of any of the three going "out west". During that time period, going "out west" probably meant western Virginia, since the colonies were still a "frontier".
Let me know if I can do anything else for you.
Steve C.
