Thackston Family Genealogy Forum
According to what I have been able to find, the first wife was named Mary Thackston, she was born in 1787 and married Carter about 1804. From All the records I can find, she and Carter only had the one child. One can assume that she died in childbirth, since Carter married again in 1806 to Mary Jane Pate. Carter and Pate married in Sumner County TN so I would assume that they lived in the area. Seems like these men had to hurry and find a wife if theirs died and left them with children. Thackston would have been an infant when his father married Pate.
James Jack Carter is my third great grandfather. My lineage is Sarah Jane Carter, Henry Charles Wade Carter, William Thaxton Carter, Janes Jack Carter.
