  • Notes 
    • Joshua Carpenter, son of Samuel and Mary (Yeates) Carpenter, was born in Philadelphia, Pa., February 2, 1720-1. On the death of his father and remarriage of his mother, he put himself under the guardianship of Joseph Richards and John Inglis, who had recently married his cousin-german Catharine McCall. At the division of his father's estate, in 1746, he received, with other property, Mr. Samuel Carpenter's mansion on the north side of Chestnut Street, between Sixth and Seventh Streets, which, since 1738, had been rented to, and occupied by, the Honorable George Thomas, Lieutenant-Governor of Pennsylvania. This was afterwards sold by Mr. Carpenter. Land was purchased by him in the counties of New Castle, Kent, and Sussex on Delaware. Mr. Carpenter married, in Philadelphia, December 10, 1743, Armgott, daughter of John Johnson, of Philadelphia County, by his wife Christina, daughter of John and Armgott Skute, of Nitapkung, on the Schuylkill River, and granddaughter of Captain Sven Skute, of Sweden, a prominent officer and colonist of New Sweden. In his will Mr. Carpenter describes himself as "gentleman.'' He died in August, 1764. Mrs. Carpenter survived him many years. They had at least three children.
