Very few biographical details are known for Millian Ann Carter, except that she was born about 1755 in Virginia and was the oldest daughter of Henry Carter and his wife, Frances, who has been identified as Frances Penn by some researchers, although in reality her maiden name is entirely uncertain. In all probability Millian was known familiarly as Milly. She married Roland (Roley) Jacobs on January 24, 1774, in Winchester, Virginia. It is not certain where she lived during the Revolutionary War since her husband appears to have traveled widely during his military service; although, the most plausible presumption is that she remained in Frederick County, Virginia. In any case, she and her husband subsequently settled in Montgomery County, Virginia, where it would seem that all of their children were born. They then migrated to Floyd County, Kentucky. It is not known when Millian Ann Carter Jacobs died, although at least one researcher has given the year as 1795. However, this seems unlikely since Joseph Gordon Jacobs, grandson of Roley and Milly Carter Jacobs, stated in 1904 that they both died in Floyd County and were buried near the mouth of Stonecoal Branch of Beaver Creek. Moreover, census records imply that Roley and Milly Jacobs did not move to Floyd County until after 1810. Additionally, the 1820 US Census for Floyd County indicates that there was an adult female of above forty-five years of age, resident in the household of Rowley Jacobs. It is likely that this was Milly Carter Jacobs, in which case, her death was probably after 1820.
