    Notes 

    • (1) Lynn Brandvold :

      Samuel Carr was probably either a brother or uncle to Jane. The DAR Application (#120918) of Mary Latham Norton was filed in the belief that Samuel Carr was the father of Jane Carr. This belief was based on the fact that Samuel Carr was not assessed for poll tax in 1808 in Rhea Co. as he was over 50 yrs of age. But Samuel Carr was listed on the following tax lists:

      Blount Co. TN 1801
      Grainger Co. TN 1810
      Rhea Co. TN 1819

      So he was probably not in Rhea Co. in 1808 as he paid taxes in Grainger Co. in 1810. He is listed on the 1819 Rhea Co. tax list. If he paid taxes in 1819, he was under 50 years of age at that time. Since he paid taxes in 1801, he had to have been at least 21 years old in 1801. This means that he must have been born by 1780. So that Samuel is probably a brother of Jane.

      Virkus in the "Compendium of American Genealogy" also gives the parents of Jane Carr as Samuel and Ann Carr; however the lineage is the same as that of Mary Latham and probably came from the DAR application of her mother Maude Witt Latham.

      James Carr appears on the following Tax Lists:

      Sullivan Co. TN 1797
      Blount Co. TN 1800
      Blount Co. TN 1801

      According to later census data (1860 and 1870) of several of the Airheart children (Henry and Daniel) their mother was born in VA. James Carr appears in Washington County, Tennessee court records for 1780-1782. (Washington County, TN Court Records, FHL Microfilm #825510) According to Penelope Johnson Allen, the extension of the western boundary line between North Carolina and Virgina (to form Washington County, Tennessee), in 1780, threw a large settlement that had hitherto considered itself to be on Virginia soil, into a second new county named for General Sullivan. Thus when Jane was born in 1779 she could have been in VA and a year later in Sullivan Co. TN without her parents having moved.

      Pg. 16. (p.54) "A relinquishment from Ann Carr to Henry Airheart of her right of Administration on the Estate of her late husband, James Carr (deceased) was produced. Henry Airheart agrees to "take upon himself the burden of the Administration of the estate of the said intestate '' Bond with Samuel Carr, his security; letter of administration issued to Airheart."

      Pg. 17. Henry Airheart returns an inventory of the goods and chattels, rights and credits of James Carr, deceased.

      October Session 1810.

      p. 20. Henry Airheart exhibited his account of the sales of the estate of James Carr, deceased. A list followed indicating the items of personal property sold, the name of the buyer and the amount paid for each item. Henry Airheart, Samuel Carr, and Mrs. Carr were named as buyers of most of the property.

      (County Court Minute Book B, 1810-1813 Rhea County, Tennessee. Published in Rhea County, Tennessee Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions (County Court) January 1810-April 1813 Minute Book B. Trancsribed/Abstracted by Bettye J. Broyles, Rhea County Historical and Genealogical Society.)

      There were either three sets of twins or 2 sets of twins and 1 set of triplets. Ann and Catherine were twins and Daniel and Nicholas were probably twins. John M. and Henry R. were either twins or the set of triplets if Michael was born in 1815, which later census reports seem to indicate.
