I believe that his parents were William Merida Carr and Lucinda Dent, but I'm not sure. I have been able to trace the Dents quite easily, but the Carrs are nearly a dead end. The early 19th century census records show many Carrs in the southeast part of Illinois. They indicate that the family came to Illinois from Virginia, but of course I don't know whether these folks are actually my great grandpa's family. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
