Born in Arkansas, moved to Indian Territory and later, Texas when a young man and worked as a cowboy. Married Laura Ruby Lloyd in 1900 in Williamson County. The family lived in his Studebaker wagon traveling throughout central Texas and to Jones County where he worked on the railroad from Stamford to Spur in Dickens County. After returning to central Texas, the family again climbed the caprock about 1918, finally settling near Abernathy where they farmed. He and his wife later lived in the old adobe house of Casimero Romero at Old Tascosa before moving to Dalhart where their son John Lawton McCarty was editor and publisher of the Dalhart Texan newspaper. "Rush" McCarty served as a peace officer at many locations in the Panhandle and was well known in his time for his sense of humor and skill as a domino player. After his wife's death in 1936, he left Dalhart and returned to Bell County where he married Miss Mattie Lee Blair, a longtime friend of the McCarty family. He died at Killeen in 1941 after a series of heart attacks. His last words before death were "Domino! Domino!"

His children, all by wife Laura Ruby Lloyd, were John Lawton McCarty, Alvin Franklin "Bill" McCarty, Ada Naomi (McCarty) Echols, and Easter Mabel "Honeybee" (McCarty) Corcorran
