Carrico DNA
In February 2013 I started a "Carrico Family Project" at FTDNA to compare FTDNA's Family Finder DNA (autosomal DNA) results with other Carrico descendants who have also tested at FTDNA with the hopes that through DNA we can discover leads to perhaps clear up some of dead end's in our Carrico ancestry. We've grown to over 50 members and there are perhaps 50 (if not more) who list Carrico in their ancestry that one or more of the members match with. We'd love to have all of you a part of our project. If you're interested in joining, or even testing, please contact me. If you've  tested at ancestry.com or 23nMe, consider joining FTDNA as well. It doesn't cost as much to send your Raw Data to FTDNA as it does to do the test there.
We do have a private website where we can discuss results.

July 19, 2015 Please note, I have always tried to share information here and elsewhere and hope that what I have posted will help you in your research. I also hope by sharing, that others will share with me as well. I have much more to share with those who contact me.
What I find disappointing is when I find some of the images from personal family files that I've added here, on findagrave and in others trees at ancestry.com without including this website or me as the source for the information.

I welcome your contributions as well as your corrections.
Feel free to contact me.

I started the Carrico section to share with other Carico/Carrico researchers items of interest that I have found in my own research. More recently I have begun to include documents, pictures etc. that others have requested to be included in these pages to also share with others. It is my hope, that in time, through these & other documents, we will find answers to the many questions about Peter Carricoe the immigrant & his many descendants. If you have documents, won't you please share them as well?

It is my personal feeling that there remain a number of error's in the most common believed descendacy of Peter Carrico, the immigrant. Much work remains to prove or disprove the research of Homer Edwin Carrico & that of his predecessor, Maud Carrico Russell. Current research indicates that they both missed, or were unaware of some early branches of the Carrico family tree, & thus made erroneous conclusions as to who fit where.

In the case of my own ancestor, Alexander (AKA John Alexander) Carrico, Maud, on her 1932 Wall Chart, indicated 1st that Alexander was the son of James (of Peter) who did have a son Aexander, but who was still a minor in 1809. Secondly, she confused two different men as being the same man with 2 wives, Alexander Carrico Rev. Vet.  of MA who married Elizabeth Foster & Alexander who married Mary Sedgwick 1800 Montgomery Co., MD. Homer Edwin, on the other hand, claimed Alexander was only married to Mary Sedgewick, but was b. 1750, a Minute Man in the Revolution & awarded land in Montgomery Co., MD, and further indicates he was the son of Peter III. Most likely because Peter is listed in the 1790 census in Montgomery Co., MD but by the late 1790's was residing in what is now known as Preston, WV.  I have found no evidence as yet to support Homer's conclusion that Alexander was son of Peter & all evidence indicates that Alexander was born during the Revolution & as such, would not have fought in it.

So, Fellow Carrico Researcher's and other intersted parties, I present to you the documents & will let them speak for themselves. I have included links to various places on the internet set up to discuss with others about Carrico research & would welcome discussion on the Carrico list what some of these documents may mean & how they agree or disagree with the previous research cited above.

My thanks to Michael Hait for obtaining numerous copies from the Archives of Maryland for me.
