Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1790
Colleton County
South Carolina, USA
Death: 1854
Appling County
Georgia, USA

Son of Revolutionary War veteran George Carter. On 24 September 1814 Isaac enlisted as Private for a six months term in the 3rd Artillery Regiment, SC Militia commanded by Captain Tristram Bethea. According to War of 1812 company rolls Isaac was given a disability discharge 25 November 1814 at Haddrell’s Point, SC.

After the war Isaac's family moved from the Colleton District on the Salkehatchie River in SC to Tattnall County, GA where he married Eleanor Tetstom 26 April 1820. Appling County had recently opened to settlers so the couple moved across the Altamaha River and settled in the 5th land district near Ten-Mile Creek in what is present day Bacon County. There they had a 300+ acre cattle ranch and raised 12 children. Isaac is found in Appling Co. GA census records in 1820, 1830, 1840 and 1850.

Isaac died in 1854. His son Stephen became Administrator of his estate. The estate included 1900 head of cattle, 150 acres of land in Appling County and 171 acres in Ware County, all now in Bacon County near present day Alma, GA. The estate was administered in Appling Court of Ordinary. Mr. Carter was buried on his home place. The family burying ground in time became the community used cemetery. Ten Mile Baptist Church was built nearby. Isaac and Nellie's cabin has since been moved but still exists a few miles away. The surrounding area is still known to many as "Cartertown".
