He was born in Fauquier county, Va., January 26, 1835, and lived there until the Civil War, when he joined the cause of the Confederacy and was wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg. After the war he moved to Maryland. He was actively employed until he reached the age of 92.

Four children survive, Cornelius Carter, of Woodfield; William Carter and Mrs. Trammell, of Laytonsville, and Mrs. Mary C. Meads, of Baltimore. His wife, the former Miss Lucy Auterbeck, of Virginia, died 16 years ago.


Albert Carter enlisted on the 17th of May, 1861 at Rectortown, Virginia. He served in Company B, 8th Virginia Infantry, CSA. This regiment was raised by Colonel Eppa Hunton in Leesburg, Virginia in May, 1861. It had six companies from Loudoun, two companies from Fauquier, one company from Fairfax and one company from Prince William.

At Gettysburg, the 8th Virginia was one of five regiments in Brigadier General Richard B Garnett's Brigade, in Major General George E. Pickett's division. Albert Carter may have received his wound during Pickett's charge on the Union center on the third and last day of the battle.
