GOFF. According to the "History of Crawford & Clark Counties, Illinois" a S. B. A CARTER & George CARTER were early settlers of Crawford County. It goes on to say that S. B. A. CARTER was a county commissioner in 1818. Then it says that one of the original members of Wesley Chapel Methodist Episcopal Church, dating back to 1825, was S. B. CARTER & Margaret CARTER. Was Margaret his wife? Does this church still exist? Does anyone know if the records exist? How to get them if so? I would love to hear from anyone who has information about these people!
