27821. Joseph Louie Carpenter

NAME: Went by Lou.

27822. William Henry (Harry) Carpenter

NAME: Went by Harry.

POSTED BY: Thomas A. Murray.
I actually have something on this couple. It's rare that I do, as what I do have tends to fade out after the 1850's.
HARRIET “HATTIE” FLEWWELLIN b. 15 DEC 1891, d. 21 OCT 1918, m. 6JUN1909 WILLIAM HENRY CARPENTER (b. 17JUN1885, d. 1971), son of Joseph Carpenter. Their daughter was: OLIVE BRADY CARPENTER b. 20 DEC 1913.
And that's about it. I have added in your information as well.
Harriet was the daughter of:
CHARLES FLEWWELLIN b. 27NOV1859, m. 19NOV1882 MARY EMMA FLEWWELLIN(b. 24OCT1862), daughter of Levi and Elizabeth (McCormack) Flewwellin
Charles Flewwellin was the son of:
LAMOREAU FLEWWELLIN b. ca. 1831, m. _____BEDELL (The Bedells are another family from Long Island.)
Lamoreau Flewwellin was the son of:
WRIGHT FLEWWELLIN b. ca. 1800, d. 1891, m. JEMIMA (b. ca. 1800, possibly maiden name was Tompkins or Tomlins.) In Yorktown in 1820; in New Castle in 1830 and 1850
Wright Flewwellin was the son of:
Robert G. Flewwelling I am fairly sure was the son of:
Robert Flewwellin was the son of Robert and Maplet (Jeacockes?) Flewelling of North Castle, Westchester Co., NY. This was a Quaker branch of the family, which may explain some movements of the family in later years. Robert Flewwellin was born (from census evidence) about 1750 ± 5 years. His will was made 4MAR1828 and probated 30JUN1828. His wife was Mary Searles (or Sarles) (b. 8FEB1755, and d. 3MAY1849, d/o John Sarles (11MAY1732-27AUG1810) and Hannah Ireland (14MAY1735-20DEC1821.) He lived in Yorktown, Westchester Co., NY To go back to Mary Emma Flewwellin who married Charles Flewwellin. She was the daughter of:
LEVI FLEWWELLIN b. 1805, d. 2SEP1875, m. ELIZABETH McCORMACK(d. 25 FEB 1900),In 1850, Levi was with his parents in Yorktown, presumably single. He appears to have married when he was in his early 50's, and is said to have lived in White Plains, N. Y.
Levi Flewwellin was the son of:
EZEKIEL FLEWWELLIN b. 27MAY1779, d. 17JUN1853, m. TAMAR WASHBURN (b. 30OCT1786, d. 21MAR1853), daughter of Joseph and Freelove (Mathews) Washburn. Tamar's brother, Reuben Washburn, married Ezekiel's sister, Hannah Flewwellin.
Ezekiel Flewwelling was the son of Robert and Mary (Searles) Flewwellin above. Robert was the son of Robert and Maplet Flewelling. Robert Flewelling was the son of Thomas and Hannah (Smith) Flewelling. Something of their ancestry can be found at

As I mentioned, I have nothing to continue this line and would be happy to add anything you can offer to the compilation on Robert and Maplet's family that I am working on.

22259. James Henry See Notes Carpenter

NOTE: This maybe (most likely is) a Zimmerman / Carpenter line from this
individual on. See below.

He went to Texas in 1883. Married in Christian or Todd County, KY.
He settle in Mertens or Brandon then later went to Hillsboro, Hill county,
Texas.  He married twin sisters.  Cynthia was 1/2 Potawatomia Indian.  Name of
first wife unknown.

MARRIAGE: J. H. Carpenter married Cynthia Thompson, ceremony performed by
Thomas H. Shaw, Minister of the Gospel.  Witnesses: Josiah & George Gray,
married at the home of Mr. Thompson.

CENSUS: 1880 Census of Christian County, KY, page 286 #92/96:
Carpenter J. F. (should be J. H.) age 27 TN, Cynthia age 23 TN, Willie age 3
TN, and George age 2 TN.

Phyllis Collins Rummel of Austin, TX submitted this descendantcy line in March
1998.  James Henry Carpenter's father was John H. Carpenter with a mother
listed as Cynthia Thompson.  It is possible they came from Kentucky.
It is not proven that John Henry Carpenter that went south from Westchester
county, New York is the correct father.  This is a temporary connection pending
further investigation.  JRC 4/98.  Phyllis indicates some of her records list
her Carpenters as "Carpentier."

Any suggestions?  I have the information showing that we go back to Hans
Zimmerman (John Carpenter) Chrisitan, Christian, John (Cumberland) to Daniel,
To James.  The info does look very convincing.
Do you know where I can get the book "Carpenters A'Plenty, by Robert C.
Seems a lot of the information came from that book as well as census.
The Mt Vernon Precinct shows James Henry Carpenter, wife Cynthia Thompson
(which I have SGorin's bio, Making it a strong possibility that Cynthia came
from Woodford Co...... Ky, not Tn.) Son Willie and George were all born in Tn.
But my Grand Father George Green Carpenter said he was born in Hopkinsville,
Ky.  James and Cynthia were married in Christian Co Ky. Any suggestions? Could
they of just put that they were all born in Tn? Since the head of household
was born in Tn?  When in reality that maybe only John was born in Tn. Hans was
over here in the 1700, what did you mean about the 200 years difference. I am
not familiar with the French Carpentier.  Just heard how they spelled there
name. Since the Indian and French fought together it has just raised questions
for me.
Thanks Phyllis.

Cynthia Thompson

The 1880 census indicates she was born in TN.  She was the second wife.

27832. William H. W. "Will H." Carpenter

The 1880 census shows he was born in TN. P286.
Could he be a William H. or Willard H. or Willett H. Carpenter instead of
Will H. Carpenter?

Lisa Brannon

3rd wife.
