Born in Kent County, Maryland, Carrie was the daughter of William Sappington and Anne Elizabeth Boardley. After both of her parents died in 1848, she was raised by her maternal grandparents Dr. Thomas Bordley and Ann Canady.

On January 16, 1854, she married William L. Greenwood, son of John (of William) Greenwood and Caroline E. V. Adkinson. Their children were John W., George Rogers (Annie Catherine West), Annie P., Maggie Permela and Carrie Lulu B. The first two girls died very young and Carrie died at the age of 21. William L. Greenwood was captured during the Civil War and died at a Southern POW camp.

On November 20, 1868, she married widower William R. Wilmer at Galena Charge M.E. Church, Kent County, Maryland. Their children were William R., James W.L. and E. Birdie Wilmer. Only Birdie survived childhood, but married widower Thomas Flinn too late in life to have children.
