Joseph Cartwright, Sr. (1784-18??) Born 1784 in North Carolina. Moved to Tennessee and Married Sarah Markham Aug 21 1799   Moved later and died either in Carroll Co Georgia or (more likely) Tennessee.

Research Notes: There is a Joseph Cartwright age 71 in 1850 census Macon Tennessee with wife Jane. According to sum records, Joseph Cartwright, Sr.’s father was Samuel Cartwright (1765-?)  Joseph’s twin brother according to census 1850 for Carroll county Georgia shows J. L. (Jacob) Cartwright with Wife Eavy age 66 and Joseph Cartwright Sr. age 66 in same household.  It is conceivable that Joseph Sr Moved Back to Tennessee in 1850.  These are ALL SUPPOSITIONS.

In 1820 Census Joseph Cartwright is listed in household next to Elizabeth Cartwright.  There is a recent DAR Line that has Elizabeth’s Father as Robert Cartwright. Robert Cartwright migrated from Virginia to Cumberland area.  The Book “Cartwrights of the SE United States,” written by Connie Cartwright Kwasha lists Joseph Cartwright Sr. as moving to Kentucky from Rowan Co, North Carolina when He in fact moved to Smith County or Sumner Co Tennessee. There is a deed from 1809 where Joseph Sr. sells Land on behalf of his sons. Perhaps that is when they migrated south to Georgia for the Land Lotteries.  Joseph Sr.’s brother Wilson fought in Indian wars in Georgia in 1830’s

Please Note: There are variations in the spelling of the last name:  For example, the 1920 census spelling is “Cartright” — without the “w” but there is no consistency. For the purposes of this listing, we have chosen to list them without variation.
