Joseph F. Carrico is my second cousin three times removed. All the Carrico’s in Washington County are related! William M. Carrico and Mary Jane O’Daniel were Joseph’s parents. The large Last Supper that hung above my grandmother’s kitchen table, while she was alive, and is now in my kitchen, was purchased from an ‘old’ William Carrico. Perhaps this is he? Born about 1820 he was 53 years older than my grandmother.

Joe F. Carrico Dead
Mr. Joe F. Carrico died at his home four miles south of Springfield early yesterday morning. About one year ago Mr. Carrico suffered a severe stroke of paralysis from which he never fully recovered. About two weeks ago he received another stroke which was the immediate cause of his death.
Mr. Carrico was about sixty years of age, and the son of Mr. William Carrico, who died many years ago. Early in life he was married to Miss Belle Johnson, a daughter of Mr. Henry Johnson. The greater portion of his life was spent on the farm where he died. He leaves his wife and one son, Damon Carrico, of Lebanon. The funeral will take place at St. Rose this morning at 9 o’clock.
