I'am trying to find parents for Zebedee Bransford Carter.He was born Nov.6th 1840 in Clay Co, and Died-1909. This is my 2nd. greatgrandfather. He was married twice. His first wife was Lucinda Hardin and 2nd. wife was Rebecca Ellen Moore. I cannot find any parents for him anywhere,any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Clay County began in 1880. If your ggf was born in the area of western Clay you need to be searching Jackson Co. [or poss. Macon]. If he was born in area of eastern Clay then you need to be searching Overton or Pickett or Putnam. It is also poss you need to look in Ky records esp. Monroe or maybe Cumberland. You may know all this but Clay area has had an eventful past since it is on the state border.

Rebecca's father Alfred was from Jackson Co. Her mother was a Mars which is usually found in Monroe Co, Ky. She married her first husband in Clay. She and Zebidee are not in the 1900 Clay census.
