RESEARCHER-DESCENDANTS: Information sent to T.Mason on 12 Aug 2005 by Mary Ann Hormuth. "John C. Haley's IN SEARCH OF ROOTS manuscript of the early 1970s states that a letter from George Franklin Carpenter to his son, Lindsey, is in possession of Mrs. Mary Carpenter of Carthage, Tennessee.

Information sent by Mary Ann on 29 Jul 2006. "G. F. Carpenter's place of death may be Fannin County after all. He and Sallie resided in Denton, Texas, on the 1870 Census. A letter has surfaced that was written by G. F. in 1873. In the beginning of the letter he seems to be living in Valley View, Cooke County, Texas. Time has passed before the last paragraph, and it is written in different color ink. There he says that he is at Jim's place in Fannin County."
