?Sally's great-great-great-great-great-great Uncle:

Alexander Carter  ca 1700 - 1769his parents 
& ca 1722 Ann ? ca 1705 - 1791 |  her parents
of Chowan County, [Gates County] NC

   This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 

   The area in which this family lived was sometimes included in Nansemond Co VA and then was placed in Chowan Precinct when the dividing line was firmly established.  in 1759 it was included in the newly formed Hertford County bounds and they in 1779 it became known as Gates County NC.

Notes from J.Phil Harris: "Nanticoke, The Isle of Wight plantation, was left to Magdalen Carter and Martha, his underage daughter by Thomas Carter II upon his death in 1709 with the stipulation that it go to Alexander Carter, his youngest son, after the death of Magdalen Carter. Magdalen Carter remained alive and lived  on the plantation until 1736 when she went to live with Martha in Bertie County after the death of John Jones, Martha's husband, in 1736. On 5 Feb 1736/37, Magalen and Martha sold their rights to Nanticoke to Alexander Carter. A month later on 26 March 1737, he sold the plantation to Joseph Mangum."

Ann Barnes was the step-daughter of Richard Barnes and daughter of his wife Mary Odom.
Richard Barnes deeded 100 acres to his granddaughter, Mary Carter, upon her birth. Dated 1 April 1723.

Edward Warren, son-in-law to Alexander Carter was named administrator of Alexander Carter's estate in Feb 1769 in Hertford [Gates] County.
