Captain John Carter, my 8th great grandfather, was the son of Thomas Carter (1585 – 1652) and his wife, Mary (died 1665), of Charlestown, Massachusetts.   John Carter was born about 1617 in England and died 14 September 1692 in Woburn, Massachusetts.  He married first to Elizabeth Kendall, my 8th great grandmother, in 1642 in Woburn.  She had five children, and died on 6 May 1691 in Woburn.  John Carter married a second time, to Elizabeth Groce, in 1692.
