For the game Morphy vs. Carr game played in 1858 you have as Carr's first name, Jabez. This may be correct for the game played on that date.
I know that there was a game played between Paul Morphy and George Shoobridge Carr in that year. Jabez Carr was George's brother.
It is possible that both brothers played Morphy. Can you confirm that both Jabez and George played Morphy?
There is a recorded game played
between Paul Morphy and George Shoobridge Carr. It took place in
Birmingham on August 27, 1858.
Born the same year as Paul Morphy, George Shoobridge Carr was a
British mathematician and author of “Synopsis of Pure
Mathematics” 1880 & 1886.
Both George Shoobridge Carr and his uncle Dr. Jabez Carr played Morphy at
the Morphy's celebrated blindfold simul at Queen's College, Birmingham on Aug. 27, 1858.
