Bio Photo (John C. Carter)

(Will be spending part of the summer in southwestern Maine).

Happy to photograph at any cemetery in the Tampa Bay, FL area! (or in the Lakes Region of SW Maine).

Born in Dover, DE, (to parents from NJ & WV), I lived in southern CA until age 12, & then in Raton, (a small town in N.E. New Mexico), which I consider my home town. I attended NM State Univ for 4 years (with a 1-yr exchange to Oregon State Univ), but did not complete a degree at that time, & later moved back to southern CA, settling in the Orange County area. After 10 yrs in the O.C., I moved to St. Petersburg, FL (Tampa Bay area) in 1990, & have been here ever since.

I have avidly worked on my family's genealogy since the age of 15 ... 43 years ago!

I am a 28-yr member (and former chapter registrar) of the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) with 7 qualifying ancestors submitted (more to come!), a member of the SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War) with 10 qualifying ancestors or brothers of ancestors (more to come!), a member of the SVR (Sons of Veterans Reserve--affiliated with the SUVCW), a member of the S&DUSCT (Sons & Daughters of U.S. Colored Troops), a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indians of New Jersey, and an associate member of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.

(Click on my profile pic above to read the story of the Civil War ancestor with whose headstone I'm posing).

I'm very proud that every single branch of my ancestry has been in America since at least pre-Revolutionary times.

Having taken numerous college courses over the years, I finally bit the bullet & enrolled in a program in 2003 to complete my degree, & graduated from Eckerd College (a local, private, liberal arts college) in May 2005 with a B.A. in Creative Writing.

Besides genealogy & writing, my other interests include: clock collecting, books, movies, photography, geocaching, the Civil War, the space program, many types of music, & visiting cemeteries!

Thanks to the creators of this site for doing such a great job!

RE: Winfield Scott Whitehurst
Hey John. Thanks so much. I've been spending time trying to complete the family's history and listings. I've also created a profile for Sarah, Winfield's first wife. Do you want me to send that to you also so all three of his wife's are shown? Be glad to. And to help any other way. Just let me know.

Winfield Scott Whitehurst
Hi John,

I'm not sure I understand the question. Here's the order. Winfield is the brother of my great grand father (Harney Butler Sr) and was married at least three times. Sarah died just after the birth of a son. Macedonia died during a hurricane in 1889. About three years later he remarried Leila. All I wanted to do was show all three wives connected. Maybe I did something incorrectly? Also, while I have you here, your note says that Winfield has a triple headstone. It's actually a double headstone for him and his son Harry. Under Harry's name are listed Harry's three children's names. This is a memorial headstone that was put there later after Harry died and there wasn't room on it to put a phrase like "Loving father of" and then the kid's names. Let me know if I need to do something different. Thanks man...rob whitehurst
