Trying to find more information on Alanson Carter born in Greene County New York about
1800. From research it appears he was thew father of Alexander Carter who was born in
Hudson, Columbia County about 1823. I have found quite a bit on Alexander but very little
on Alanson. From my research, it appears that Alanson might have been married twice.
Either that or there was more than one Alanson Carter. I think that one of Alanson's
wife's was name Sophia. From various census records there looks like there were a few
Carter families in Hudson that I think were connected somehow but not sure exactly how.
Trying to prove the connection between Alexander and Alanson has led me to trying to get
Alexander's birth certificate. The issues with that are that I really don't know
his birth date. They estimated birth year is figured from census records. I do have the
date Alexander died in Hudson though. Would I ber able to get his birth date from that? If
so how far back do birth records in Hudson go? His estimated birth year is about 1823.
Where would be the best place to order his death dertificate from?
