Greetings from Titusville, Florida

The Florida Star/Vol III, Titusville, March 1, 1883 #44 What was lately know as the Carter settlement in the north of LaGrange, will have an addition to the name. Mr. William Carter and family of Lowdnes County, Georgia, brother of E.B. and A.J. Carter has recently moved in and will settle near his brothers. By attaching ville to Carter they will have Carterville, a name comprehensive and appropriate.
