I am also researching the Carver's. I am curious to know which ones you are researching. If you're interesting in comparing notes you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org My great grand parents were William Cleveland Carver and Minnie Avis Thacker Carver They were from the Alberene,Virginia area. I don't have much information but will share with you what I do have. Hope to hear from you. Please take care and have a great evening.
