Link/Carter Abbeville SC, 1810

I'm trying to prove that Henrietta Link, daughter of Thomas Link, of Abbeville, SC was the wife of Thomas Carter. In Thomas Link's will he lists a daughter as Henrietta Carter. If she was the wife of Thomas Carter, the last time I found them was in Meriwether Co., Ga. She was alive in 1840 but in 1850 Thomsa [sic] married Sarah Pearson and moved to Coosa Co, Al.

Any one out there connected to this family?

Classification: Query
I would like to get in touch with members of the Link family from those and nearby counties and in particular with families of men who are descended in an all-male line from John Adam Link. John Adam was in Halifax County, Virginia, by 1759 and died there in 1789.
The idea is to get a DNA test to see whether this Link family is related to other Links (several spellings), for example the group who arrived in North America from
