All CARTER, CATER and DECATUR family members who are direct descendants of Richard CATER I (Bet 1598/1611 – Bet 1677/1679), our progenitor, are eligible to apply for membership in the Piscataqua Pioneers Genealogical Society.
The Piscataqua Pioneers is a unique historical and genealogical society that celebrates our connections to the original settlers of the Piscataqua River watershed before 1776.
Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME located at the mouth of the Piscataqua River… the seaside communities of New Castle, Rye and Hampton, NH and of York, ME and up to Dover, NH. From the Great Works and Salmon Falls Rivers to Berwick, ME… the settlements of Newington, Greenland, Newmarket and Durham, even to Stratham and Exeter, NH. These were all places where our ancestors settled, lived, fought, helped to grow, and die.
