Chester Carson was the fifth of eight children born to William Palmer Carson (1845-1929) and Martha Mahulda Dailey (1849-1933). Chester's grandfather, Walter Harrison Carson (who grew up in York County, SC. before moving to Clarke County, Georgia.) had moved to the Hebron Community of Franklin County, Georgia (now Banks) in the mid 1850's. Some years later he bought land on Little Creek in the Ashland Community on present Hwy. 59 and gave a portion to each of his four children: James, Margaret, Thomas, and William. William built on his portion in 1879-80 and Chester was born there on January 5, 1881. He attended Old Central School, finishing all classes that were offered. He was quite good with numbers and could figure in his head by rounding off, similar to some of the "new math" methods. He read the Bible, a daily newspaper, farm magazines, and church material, but never read books in any great numbers. He stayed in the ancestral home, sharing the farm chores with his father and brothers. A gentle man of small frame with beautiful blue eyes, he loved nothing better than to visit with family and friends on the porch in the summer time or to share the circle of warmth around the fire on a cold winter evening either at home or at a neighbors.
