Anna Elizabeth Barclay Carter is a sister of Alexander Barclay and his heir. Anna was born on the 15 of April, 1870 in Eagle Creek. She is present in the Federal and state census of 1870, 1875, 1880, 1885. She is also the youngest child of John Barclay and his second wife Ellen.
She married David Maurice Carter on 9 July, 1885 in Scott Co., Minnesota.
Married – At Eagle Creek, July 9, 1885, by F.P. Pond Esq. Mr. David Carter to Miss Anna Barclay, youngest daughter of Mr. John Barclay of Eagle Creek. – Shakopee Courier July 15, 1885.

Anna and David Carter lived in an area of Wisconsin which is right on the border of Michigan so you might see to two towns intertwined in the records of people who lived in this area. These towns are on the shores of Lake Michigan and protected by Green Bay Harbor. I have seen Lake Michigan but only from its very southern tip. It is more like an ocean.
Be advised that I am not an expert on the Carter family which looks like it has very interesting history being of French Canadian origins. There are cousins who know more and what I present here is just a summary so if you want to obtain further information leave a comment and I can contact you to chat. I am also basing this information on what the census is revealing and cemetery information, more needs to be done.
In 1900 Anna and David Carter appear in the Marinette, Marinette Co., Wisconsin census. It looks like a brother is nearby?

I have had the honor of meeting descendants of Anna’s in the past. They have been kind in sharing about their family history. I therefore have presented here my study of this family which needs more work of course. If you would like to share or learn more leave a comment.
UPDATE: As of September 29, 2017 I have heard from Jim Carter a descendant of Anna Barclay Carter and David Carter. He has shared with me his “Ancestral Meanderings: A brief assemblage of narrative and photographs of the Carter/Barclay, Mantich/Haljcsik and Martin/Riedel lineages. A PDF of his family history. Contact me at email@example.com and I will be happy to get you in contact with him. He has more information on the children of this couple.
