McCarty had siblings Sarah Ellen McCarty, Julius Wilson McCarty, Betty Elizabeth McCarty, Ruth Ann McCarty, Mary Katherine Cora McCarty. His father remarried after the death of his mother and thus he had a half sister - Frances Harriet McCarty.

McCartys Ancestors are buried in the Friendship Cemetery at McCarty Road / Five Mile Road intersection. Drasco, AR. Drasco is about 3 miles or so down the road from Wolf Bayou. This is a well kept cemetery and there are McCarty descendants living in this area now.

John married Louisa Allie Carlton in Wolf Bayou, Cleburne Co., AR and eventually settled in Oklahoma Territory before statehood, then resided in Garvin County the rest of his life where he founded the town of McCarty.
