Hello- I hope I am not imposing upon the generosity of those of you give your time to look up information about our Civil War ancestors. Yesterday I asked about Jefferson Golden. I thank Mr. McDowell very much for the reply. Today I'd like to ask one more question; this one about the man who eventually married Jefferson's daughter, my great-greatgrandfather, Rubin Carter (unfortunately common last name, I know). I found one Rubin Carter on the Alabama Dept. of Archives and History website. I don't know if that was my Rubin Carter, however. I thought someone here may have more identifying information about the Rubin Carter who did fight. My Rubin (sometimes spelled Reuben) Carter is listed in the 1860 Alabama census as living in his father's household in Pt Rock (Paintrock, I assume), Jackson County, AL. As far as I know, he lived for the rest of his life in Paintrock. The enlistment date shown is 1863. My Rubin would have been 15 years old then- young, but still possible. At some point in his life, Rubin went blind. Since no one in that category is listed in the census, I assume he was still sighted at that time. This post has gotten long- thanks ahead for anyone who has information that can shed light on whether Civil War veteran Rubin Carter is, or is not, the same person as my great greatgrandfather.
