A large Carter family was from Ravenna OH.  In the early 1850s Miles, Ira, Julius, Addison, and a few more migrated to eastern Iowa, and to Oxford Jct.  They were successful in all their several businesses, including stock (cattle) raising which led to their having a Montana ranch.  A few Carters went to Los Angeles and Long Beach CA.  A (long) essay on the Carters was completed in 2011 and is in Wregie Memorial Library, Oxford Jct. IA.

If you descend from these Carters, PLEASE contact me.  JudyNelson08@gmail.com
