It is assumed that Justin is related to Issac & Dennis McCarty in Fayette Co. Ky. due to his marrying Mary Graham in Fayette Co. Ky., also possibly related to Thomas McCarty of Jefferson Co. Ky. It is also assumed that Justin is related to David, Samuel and John McCarty of Bourbon Co. Ky. [all 3 on Kentucky Tax Payers list, 1789-1792].
The reason for the probable relationships to the above named McCarty's is Justin's first appearing in Kentucky in Fayette Co., where he marries Mary Graham. Possibly Issac and or Dennis being brothers or uncles to Justin for him to have been there after apperaring from nowhere. Justin is "missing" from 1781 till he shows up in Fayette Co. in 1792. The next year, he and Mary are in Washington Co. The other reason for a possible relationship to the above named, Thomas, Samuel, John and William noted below, is that Justin names his children these same names. These names continue being used in Justin's McCarty line up to present day.
It is highly probable that Justin is related to William McCarty of Barron Co. Ky. who married Polly Hannah Forbis and they had a daughter, Nancy who ends up in Justin's household at a young age. After Justin's death, his son Thomas Samuel, is Bondsman for Nancy's marriage to Harrison Hays marriage date Dec. 12, 1831, Marion Co. Ky.
