Roy Benona Carpenter was the son of John B. Carpenter and Margaret Elizabeth Wade. Born around Atlanta, Georgia in 1891 he was an only child. Roy was thought to be an orphan as his father died when he was just 11 years old. He was raised in Gainesville, Cooke County, Texas by his aunt Lucy H. (Carpenter) Hays and her family. Roy married Gracia Di Simms in 1915 and had two children: R.B. (Roy)"Bob" and Joe Carpenter.

Roy worked for the railroad when he was involved in an accident and suffered a horrible injury to his leg. After that he could walk with a peg or wooden leg. Later he became involved in business and bookkeeping. Roy lived with his wife, Gracia, throughout Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado and eventually California, his final resting place.
