Thomas Carr was born in Ireland and came to this country when only a child of
two years of age in company with his brother John and sister Hannah. Their
parents both died on their passage, and were consigned to the waters of the
Atlantic ocean. The children were landed at Annapolis, Md, and kind friends
took them in charge and brought them up. Thomas lived in Maryland, where he
married and raised a family, but moved to Pennsylvania before all of his
children were born. Carr Family Records, Edson Carr, pg 76.

See Rachel Carr, born about 1749. Possible match with John's daughter Rachel.

My ancestor John Carr (He began his will with John Kerr, but signed as John
Carr) arrived in Annapolis, Maryland with a brother and sister after their
journey from Ireland. His parents died at sea during the voyage.

He married Elizabeth Cross and eventually moved to Fayette County,
Pennsylvania. Several of his sons left PA and went to KY then IN (Clark
County). They apparently travelled with many of the COOMBS family. Two Carr
brothers married Coombs girls.

I suspect that John Carr, b. 1720 was from the Ulster District in Ireland,
but have no proof of this. My research has not progresses any further back
in time.

I hope this answers your question! If we have common interests perhaps we
can help one another.
