Welcome to The Carter Family History page. As you know we are
Descendents of The Lumbee Indian as they are known today. On this page
you will learn a bit about your Family History. The information was
researched by Mr. Grady Locklear who is a member of The Carter Family.
The words in this Carter Family History are in his words as published in his
book, The Genealogy a Perspective, written February 1989. My name is
Mickey Carter and I have added some information, I'm trying to fill in some
of the gaps that were left out in Grady's book, and it has turned out to be a
chore. If you have any information that will help me fill in these gaps or any
questions you can email me at (firstname.lastname@example.org) (subject
As you follow the children of Hardy H. Bell and Sarah Parker you will be
able to see that the majority of people in the Saddletree and surrounding area
can trace their roots to the Hardy H. Bell heritage. I will attempt to list the
early beggining of ancestory linkage to his family. The follwing are his
children and who they married and some of their children.

William Santee is an interesting story in itself. However, I do not have the
answer to the story, nor do I know why it happened. Never the less, Santee
changed his name serveral times over a period of time. He was married as
Kennedy Santee, then his name changed to William Santee. In 1885 he was
appointed as a district member of the Robeson County Board of Education,
and in 1887 he was reappointed under the name of William Canady. From
that point on all his children used the name of Canady
In the census of 1900 he and his wife were still living. The only other
member of his family living with him at that time was a grandson, Willie

As I add information to these Families I will try and put them in prespective
as to what Family they are related to. You will find this information on The
Family Tree pages according to Family name. This is going to take a long
time to achieve because of lack of information and the fact that there are
hundreds of Family Memebers to be add to this Web Site. It is a work in
progress that might never be finished in my lifetime. It may have to be pasted
on to another generation to try and keep it up to date. Next Page
