Fourth Generation

12. William STAMPS was born in Goochland County, Virginia.

William STAMPS and Elizabeth CARTER were married.5 Elizabeth CARTER was born in 1768 in Halifax County, Virginia.

The Stamps researchers state that Elizabeth Carter was the daughter of Theodrick Carter III. This does not seem to be the case.
The Will of Theodrick Carter, 13 Jul 1805, in Halifax Co VA states his heirs as:
Sons: Charles, Samuel, William, Alexander, Nathaniel, Thomas, and Jesse
Daughters: Elizabeth RICHARDSON, Ann Bennett, and Susannah Cabiness.
Wife not mentioned. Sons Townes and John who are both recorded in a family Bible were also not named.
Executors: Son Alexander, sons-in-law Richard E. Bennett & Mathew Cabaniss

It also followed that they believed her brother William Carter had married William Stamps' sister Mary. This seems doubtful given the above.
