Marker in Madison Co., KY at Kits birthplace; parents

I have a copy from a book on records in Madison Co., KY, which was copied by a Mrs. J.B. Noland years ago:

"Notes of consent - Madison County, Kentucky Court Records - File Box 2 - 1796 - James Robinson gives his consent for his daughter Rebecca Robinson to marry Lindsey Carson....Feby 11, 1796."

"Note - Dr. James Carson, Calhoun, GA placed a marker honoring his grandfather, Christopher (Kit) Carson. This marker given by Dr. Carson was placed on the site of the birthplace of Kit Carson which is on Tate's Creek Pike at the intersection Goggins Lane."

"Linsey and Rebecca Carson left Kentucky when Kit was five years old. Their home (in) Maidson County, KY (was) four miles (from) Richmond, KY. This family went to MO when Kit Carson was a very young Old Arrow Rock Tavern Stephen Turley and his young son was going over the Sante Fe Trail and Kit begged to go..finally it was arranged and Turley took Kit on his first trip blazing the trail."

I entered the rest of this on the Turley Forum.
