William Carter (1730-1761) was the son of James Carter (1697-1743) and Mary Brent. He was very likely the father of Loyal Carter (died c.1847). [We know, of course, that Will was d.s.p.] William owned 140 of the 240 acres that became Palace Green. Immediately after his death, his property was sold to satisfy a bond. That may be why he was buried in James Carter’s cemetery.
