Re: Kit Carson

Thanks for all that useful information, it made the research more feasible. I donít have quite as much information to give you but I can tell you what I already know.
       
       Fact 1: Agnes Carson is my grandmother on my dadís side. Your father is my dadís half-brother.
       Fact 2: Agnes married my grandfather whose last name was Seletos.
       Fact 3: Ancestry lists Agnesís birthday as Nov. 1914 in North Carolina.
(Nothing you probably donít know already, but hopefully itís useful)

       To clarify, my grandfatherís first name was Constantine. I looked on ancestry and was able to find only city directories and his SSI. On the city directories, it lists Agnes Seletos. There wasnít much I could gather on them, like you stated. There are some unanswered questions that came up while I was doing the research. With your help, maybe we can solve them.
       I appreciate everything you gave me, especially all that information about Agnesís brothers and sisters. I had no idea she had all those siblings. I only knew about Evelyn. Here is where I am a little lost. If Agnes grew up in North Carolina, what made her move up north to PA and DE? That situation that happened with your dad had to be hard on everyone, did that impact her move? Sorry if this seems like a direct question but Iím just trying to piece it all together. Secondly, if William Vernon Carson was her dad, who was her mother? On ancestry, it lists Martha Letitia Tucker as his wife, with her birth date as 1881 and death as 1910. So that canít be Agnesís mother if she was born in 1914. Also, I found a 1920 census from ancestry that lists an Agnes Carson, Evelyn Carson, and a William Carson with his Netta as his wife. Do you know anything about this?

Iím glad to hear about the Carson side. I donít know much about the cities or counties in NC, so it made the research that much more intriguing. Agnes had a lot of kids so we have family members in Ohio, Delaware, and Florida as well. Hopefully, this helps aid in your research.

Best regards,
Keri
