John was born in Tenn.& was married with one daughter. His wife died & he came to Texas by wagon in 1850. He married a 2nd. time and served as a Corporal in the 22nd Texas Infantry in Ark. & LA.1862-1865, Civil War. He & wife #2 had 6 children and his wife died of child birth complications after their last one.Two years later his 10 year old daughter burned to death. He married a third time but had no children.
The picture of Cpl. John Harmon Carter was taken when he was serving in the Twenty Second Texas Infantry in 1862 with Hubbard's Regiment. The picture was with a letter written by him to his wife and parents in November 1862. In his letter he tells his sister, Sarah that her husband has died of pneumonia. About 1,500 men in his regiment had died of pneumomia, measles, mumps and typhoid fever and burials were conducted each day. They were at Camp Nelson in Cabot, Arkansas then. I still have the original letter. There is a book about this unit called " Sires and Sons. " that is now available.
