CARTER, Lorenzo, pioneer, born in Rutland, Vermont, in 1767; died in Cleveland, Ohio, 7 February, 1814. He immigrated in 1796 to the western reserve, and settled in Cleveland in the spring of 1797. He was a man of great strength and an expert hunter, and supported his family by ferrying people across the river, by trading with the Indians, and by hunting. Through his skill and courage he acquired an ascendency over the red men. He kept a hotel and a store for the sale of hunting-supplies in the early days of Cleveland, and built the first frame house, the first warehouse, and the first vessel constructed in that town. In 1804 he was elected a major in the militia. In later life he purchased and improved a farm, which is now a part of the City and covered with buildings.
