  Mrs. Walter May, Okanogan, Washington, gives the family of seven of Timothy6 Carver's children as follows:

James Carver (1781-1837) had six children, Hannah, Mary Ann, Jane, Hosea, Charlotte and Phoebe.
Elijah Carver (1781-1854) married Susanah Longwell who died in 1840.
Eleazer Carver (1788-1873) had three sons, David, William and Ira.
Barnabus Carver (1790-1870) had three sons, Stephen, Frederick and Madison
Sarah (or Sally) Carver (1791-1848) married James Longwell and had thirteen children, Hosea, Zillah, Lewis, Phoebe, Jerry, Amanda, Hannah, James, Ira, Sarah, David, Mary and Orman.
Zillah Carver (1785-1880) married Ira Longwell and had six children, Daniel, Rachel, David, William, Harriette
   and Sarah Jane.
Henry Carver (1804-1872) had four children, James, Margaret, Mary and George.

   The older Timothy Carver and his wife Rebecca Washburn were early settlers in the vicinity of Carmel, New York. Five children reached maturity; Rebecca, wife of Jeremiah Hughson; Mehetable, wife of Daniel Pierce; Timothy (1753- 1825); Thankful, wife of ------ Abbott; Barnabas (1761-1831), who left no descendants. Pelletreau, William, History of Putman County, New York, pp. 357-359.

  Timothy5 Carver (Eleazer4-3, John2, Robert1) came to New York from eastern Massachusetts. This branch of the family merits further study for Rebecca Washburn must have been the descendant of a Mayflower passenger, either Francis Cooke or John Billington. Of the children of Timothy' Carver at least four died unmarried, Jonathan, Mary, Rachel and Daniel. James7 Carver was involved in a famous law suit over a tract of land.
