Ann Carr, daughter of Thomas and Rebecca Carr, was born at Market Raisin, in the county of Lincoln, on March 4th, 1783. She was the youngest of twelve children. Her parents moved in a humble sphere of life and were unacquainted at the period to which we refer, with the nature and obligations of true religion. She lost her mother when she was five years of age, but found a second mother in an excellent aunt who came to be her father’s housekeeper.
