Aletia was born in Brown Township, Carroll County, Ohio, and the daughter of James and Jane Love. Her parents were born in Ireland, and probably married in Pennsylvania where they started their family, before removing to Ohio.
Aletia married Samuel Carson on February 11, 1875 in Carroll County, Ohio. An interesting note about the marriage was that Samuel's family removed to Porter County, Indiana about 1861-1863, and that he returned to Ohio to marry her more than a decade later. Aletia was less than ten years old when the Carson's left Ohio.
Samuel and Aletia settled in Winfield, Lake County, Indiana. The couple had two daughters: Eva and Jettie.

The deceased was born in Carrol county, Ohio. When about 29 [sic] years of age she united with the M. E. church and remained a communicant until her death. Mrs. Carson was a model Christian woman, a great lover of the means of grace, and graciously trained in Christian womanhood. As a a wife and mother she was an example of all good. She leaves a husband and 2 children and many relatives and friends to mourn their loss, but not as those who have no hope. She died in full faith of immortality and eternal life. She was married to Samuel Carson on the 11th of February, 1875, at the residence of her parents in Malvern, O. Since that time they have lived at Hickory Point in this county.
