Henry (1John) Carrier

Henry Carrier was born 7/13/1730 in England. Unfortunately, nothing is known of Henry's life before his immigration to America. Sometime before 2/1755, Henry immigrated to Virginia in the company of his family. 

The first documentation for Henry is his service as a sergeant with the Virginia Militia in the French and Indian War. On 10/21/1755 Henry volunteered for the militia. He probably fought with General Braddock and George Washington on Braddock's Road to Ft. Pitt (later part of the National Road). The next documentation for Henry is almost twenty years later and his service during the Revolutionary War. The next documentation for Henry is his listing in a 1779 land transaction in Hampshire Co VA.

On 5/15/1781 in Shenandoah Co VA, Henry married Mary Nicholas b. c. 1761 in Virginia. Henry and Mary lived their lives near Powell's Fort. But, Mary died sometime before 1803.

On 1/29/1803 in Shenandoah Co VA, Henry married Ruth Barbara Walters b. aft. 1766. Nothing more is known of Henry and Ruth's life together. Henry died 12/1810 in Shenandoah Co VA
