Carson Family Genealogy Forum
Does anyone have any information about Richard Carson who was born about 1876 in Missouri. His parents were Joseph B. Carson, b. abt. 1844 in Illinois and Jennie Turner, b in Missouri. Joseph and Jennie were married 24 DEC 1872 in Crawford County, Missouri. Joseph was said to be of Cuba, Missouri and Jennie was of Bourbon, Missouri. On the 1880 US Census for Meramac, Crawford, Missouri I found Joseph B. Carson, a widower, living with his brother John F. Carson, head of household. Richard Carson age 5 was in the same household, his relation ship to the head was nephew. There was a Hallie Carson, age 7, niece in the same household. I do not know if she was the child of Joseph B. and Jennie Carson.
The 1900 US Census for Homestead Township, Barton, Kansas has Richard Carson b. Feb 1876, Missouri, living with his father Joseph B. Carson, widower,head of household, b. 1844, Illinois. Also in the same household is a Wade Carson, b. 1885, Missouri. Both Richard and Wade are listed as son of the head of house hold. Wade was the son of Joseph B. Carson and Emily Gload whom Joseph married in LaClede County, Missouri.
On the 1905 Kansas State Census I find Joseph B. Carson and Wade residing in Herington, Dickinson County, Kansas. I have not been able to locate Richard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
