Carter Men from Autauga Co.

George Carter (my g-g-g-grandfather), a farmer, and his family moved from Virginia to Independence, Autauga County, AL about 1847.

Of his nine children, 3 sons (William R, John L, and Jeramiah "Mack") and one son-in-law (J. Perry Daniel) served with Company G of the 6th Alabama Infantry (Autauga Rifles). One son (Archibald M.) served with the 53rd Alabama Cavalry, Company E. One son-in-law (James B. Rawlinson) served with the 3rd Alabama Cavalry (Prattville Dragoons.) The youngest children were only 10 and 12.

However, I haven't been able to document the second oldest son, George Thomas Carter, born about 1839. I suspect he might have joined the Prattville Dragoons as there is a Thomas Carter listed - but no details. He would have been about 22 years old. I know he survived the war as he lived in Montgomery County in 1876. Can anyone help?
