Landon was named after his grandfather Landon Carter b. 1757 who served in the Revolutionary War from Caroline Co., VA. and married Mary Goodrich in Amherst co., VA. His grandfather was NOT Landon Hamilton Carter the Auditor of TN.! DNA results are showing Landon's ancestry goes back to Nicholas Ware of Caroline Co., VA. More Carter males should have DNA done.
