     There is an unproven family tradition the maiden name of Sarah, wife of Jacob Kalar Sr., was Carrico. The Carrico (Carricoe) family are first seen in Maryland, 1674 (Peter Curricoe). The name commonly appeared in Portugal. There is a record there of one Pero (Peter) Dias Carrico II of Montemoro Novo, Portugal, who in 1629 was condemned by the Spanish/Portuguese Inquisition for “Judaismo.” He was sent to prison for four years, confessed, paid his fines, released, and it is believed that he then fled to France. If you have an interest in Carrico genealogy, there are some excellent postings to RootsWeb Carrico mailing list. Go HERE, type in Carrico, then start with the January 1999 postings by Carol Mitchell.
     There are many missing pieces in Carrico genealogy as there also are in Kalar genealogy. If you can supply any of the missing pieces, please write to the Kalar &c., Family Webmaster
