Isaac Carter

The Isaac Carter Chapter is currently not meeting. Please stay tuned for more information.


     "Isaac Carter was born in Cumberland County, North Carolina. He had no record of his birth, but believed he was born in or near the year 1764. His ancestry is still unknown, although some serious research is being done right now. It was believed that he had a brother named Samuel Carter.

      Isaac enlisted with the Army of the United States on February 5, 1777 with Colonel Hogan of the 7th Regiment of the North Carolina line of regular soldiers. After seeing action at Brandywine, Germantown, Mommoth, and Valley Forge the army moved south he and was discharged at a place called Lockhart's folly, about thirty miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina. After a short time, he reinlisted again as a balloted substitute and served another year. He was wounded in the arm at Eutau Springs. He was discharged near Charleston, South Carolina.

      After returning to North Carolina for a few years, Isaac moved to Orangeburg District, South Carolina. He was married there to Nancy Young. In 1809, Isaac, Nancy and their children,some of whom had families of their own, and some of their friends and neighbors moved by covered wagon caravan to Mississippi, which was at that time still a territory. They settled on Rocky Creek, near Chatawa. He died March 24, 1834 and is said to be buried on what is known at Carter's Bluff, overlooking Rocky Creek.

      Several of Isaac's sons served their country during the war of 1812 and many of his grandsons fought for the confederacy during the War Between the States. Some gave their lives."(1)

    The Hattiesburg based chapter of the Mississippi Society Sons of the American Revolution is proud to be named after this Patriot.
