WILLIAM J. CARTER, farmer, is a native of Warrick County, Ind., born
December 8, 1851, the only living of two children born to Joseph A. and
Iciephena J. (Gray) Carter, who were natives respectively of Kentucky
and Indiana. The father came to Warrick County, Ind., in about 1848,
where he married and followed farming in Boon Township until his death,
January 27, 1853. The mother married again and William moved with her to
Pike County, Ind., where he lived until her death, which occurred
February 14, 1863. He then came to Warrick County and lived with his
grandfather about two years; then returned to Pike County and lived with
his stepfather until eighteen years old. Mr. Carter received a good
common school education in youth and March 9, 1873, was married to
Florence B. McCool, of Warrick County. He settled on a farm four miles
from Boonville, which was left him by his parents, where he resided
until 1882, when he sold that farm and bought the McCool homestead,
which consists of 160 acres, upon which he has lived up to the present
time. In politics Mr. Carter is a Republican and is the father of four
children, named Joseph W., Maudie, Noble J. and Gracie. Mrs. Carter died
November 23, 1883.
