McCarter, Margaret Hill, author and educator, was born near Carthage, Rush county, Ind., May 2, 1860. Her parents, Thomas T. and Nancy (Davis) Hill, came to Indiana from North Carolina in 1858. They were Quakers, and through the Parker and Wickersham families Mrs. McCarter can trace her ancestry back to the members of that sect who came over with William Penn. She was educated in the common schools, the Carthage high school, Earlham College, a Quaker institution at Richmond, Ind., and in 1884 was graduated in the State Normal School at Terre Haute, Ind. She taught for nine years in the Indiana public schools, and in 1888 came to Topeka, Kan., where for nearly six years she was a teacher of English in the high school. On June 5, 1890, she was married to Dr. William A. McCarter. She has contributed to the newspapers and magazines, and is the author of The Cottonwood's Story, Cuddy's Baby, In Old Quivira, The Price of the Prairie, One Hundred Kansas Women, and The Peace of the Solomon Valley.
