My Carter ancestors lived in Colleton County, SC from the mid 1700s until at least the early 1800s. This included George Carter, RS.
(My great grandfather, Joe Knight’s paternal grandmother was named Rachel Carter. She was married to William Cone Knight and they were the parents of Granddad’s father, Aaron W. Knight. Rachel was born in Georgia, but her father, Captain Jessie Carter, was born in Colleton County, SC, as was his father, George Carter, RS. Captain Jessie Carter died in Lowndes County, Georgia.)
