From "Ansearchin News", Volume 32, Winter 1985, pg. 173:

The obituary of Thomas Carr was printed in the CENTRAL GAZETTE, Charlottesville, VA on 6 Jul 1821. "Died at his residence in Wilson County, TN, 5th May 1821, Thomas Carr, aged 79 years, he has left a widow and a very numerous offspring to lament their loss; he was a native of Virginia, his father, Gideon Carr (note: it appears his father was Thomas Carr and his BROTHER was Gideon Carr), was the first settler of the north side of the S.W. mountain where the deceased lived until he was 65 years old. He had long been a respectable member of the Baptist Church. May his godly walk prove a blessing to all who knew him."
