Well I guess the grave site was not totally unknown to everyone in our Carson family, but none of his direct decedents were aware of his internment hear. Like to cem.

I didn't record the names or get good pics when I was there. But here is a web site for the cemetery and if you click on the individual grave sites it will give you more information.

Carolina Carson's have been pushing to make a connection to my 5th Great Grandfather Thomas for decades with no luck. There are assumptions and guess work put out there as fact but the truth to date is there is NO proven connections without going back to Ireland.

When attempting to tie in know this, Thomas Carson is a very common name. There was one in Lancaster and TWO in Washington Co, PA and all three were about the same age. In addition both in Washington Co, came independently directly from Ireland. Both are also listed with the DAR as patriots in the Rev War from Washington Co and are listed there with different wives and children. I believe both have different DNA strains. R1 from the Celtic/Scotish Carson's and mine is I from the Nordic Viking/Scottish.

NOW I have a 5th cousin once removed. We have both done the DNA test and both are direct decedents of Thomas 1740 and Mary Smith Carson. We are a 35/37 DNA match. We have someone in the Carolina's Carson who is a 35/37 match with my cousin and 33/37 match with me. So we know MY line has changed the 2 markers and my cousins has stayed unchanged. Because this Caroline Carson matches 2 we know he is related at 90% probability at 9-12 generations and 99% at 13-16 generations.

I am 8th gen US, cousin is 7, so we still know there is no migration from PA to NC. DNA shows the connection is still pre US immigration. There is a common male relative at 9-16 generations but it is in Ireland and no one seems to be able to connect back to Ireland due to a records fire about 1900.
