I don’t have as much data on my Carrico ancestors as I’d like. My second great-grandfather Crist Hayes Carrico was one of my major brick walls until about 3 years ago. The kindness of a fellow ROAGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) volunteer shattered that wall in a matter of days and revealed the heart-breaking story of a man lost to alcohol and a broken family.

  2. Ruth,
    Thanks for the reply. Probably related, but different branch of the family! I appreciate your reply!

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks for stopping by!

    My Carricos before Benjamin Carrico came from Kentucky, I think. Haven’t conclusively established that just yet. A couple of census entries support that, but I’ll need more data. I do have Benjamin in a 1881 Missouri business directory as a grocer in Stoddard County, MO. I really haven’t looked too deep yet.

    Have a great day!
