Might this Jacob be his son - attending his father? Obviously not impossible, but if John was 63 his father would probably have been at least 85. I know some people lived to a good age, but not as commonly back then.

ADDED do you fancy PM'ing me the image of the cert? Might be interesting to see it.

hello Kay,

Some of the cert's a little hard to read but under the date of death14th Feb 1839 it looks like (at the fathers) no address given then on informant it says mark of Jacob Carter in attendance the father ?

Hi Mary,

Am puzzled at the name of Johns father on his death certificate,unless he was the one to register th death?

Normally English ones dont have a fathers name,only on marriage and birth if applicable.

The sites you have looked at,are taken from parish church registeres,,,,,not all have survived though various means,,,,,,fire.water.theft.,lost or in just too fragile.state.

Help needed I have something wrong not sure what these are details I have
John Carter b abt 1777 Sedgley Staffordshire married 1797 to Ann Barber I have John's father as Thomas Carter married to Phebe ?
I also have 2 siblings for John, Allen Carter b 1771 and William b1780

I thought these where correct as John and Ann had a daughter Phebe b1807 which would fit with who I thought was John's mother,The problem arose when I sent for John's death cert
He died 1839 aged 63 in Sedgley but it has fathers name as Jacob Carter the thing is John and Ann also had a son Jacob b 1814 which again would fit with John's father on death cert
I cannot find a john Carter with father Jacob on any of the sites I've tried GR, Ancestry, FMP. FreeReg or family search so I am not sure now if I have wrong parents and siblings on my tree for John or maybe the wrong John Carter death cert

Mary :-)
