William Henry Carson was my ggfather, married to Nancy (Kizzie) Long. He was born in TN about 1861. I am looking for his parents. He is in Hamilton Co TN in the 1870 Federal Census in the household of E. C. Carson and is 9 years of age. Others listed are: Nancy C age 37; Luzena age 20; George age 15; Robert L age 13; Wm H age 9 (my guy)and Mary Elen age 4 (I have her death certificate.)Does this family connect with any one on this forum? My grandmother always said we were related to Kit Carson. In the 1860 Bradley co. census there is a family headed by a male with the odd name of Caroline (Carolina? a nickname?)but the other names are Nancy 28, Lucina 12, George 5, Robert 2 and a Rebeca Gibson 70. Any connection?
