Birth: Apr. 18, 1836
Virginia, USA
Death: Nov. 29, 1920

District Of Columbia, USA

Bushrod is one of three illegitimate children of Margaret Peggy Carter, daughter of Isaac Carter & Sarah Redmond in Fauquier Co., Virginia. Two of Peggy's children were proven to be sired by Isaac Dennis but we are not sure which two. Still that means there is a 66% chance that he is the father of Bushrod. Additionally, on his birth record his father is listed as Isaac but no last name is given.

Bushrod married twice. His first wife, Martha Knight in 1860. She died in 1878. They had 11 children (JW, John A, Sara E Suthard, Wm, Mary S., Rosa, James Henry, Richard L., Letty M., Charles and Georgianna (m Mosby Williams*).

Bushrod's second wife was Mary Virginia Williams* (m Dec 1879). Together they had 6 children (Martha C. Davis, Lizzie C. Weiss, Marguerite M Francis, Ruth I. Samuels, Charles and Minnie Louise Woodruff). Mary's younger brother, Mosby, married her step-daughter, Georgianna (d/o Bushrod & Martha), who was actually only a few years younger than her.

There are a few DNA projects going on regarding this CARTER clan and their connections. Any information on Bushrod's other descendants would be greatly appreciated.
