Birth: Feb. 5, 1889
Coryell
Coryell County
Texas, USA
Death: Aug. 28, 1968
Coryell County
Texas, USA

From descendant/ Patricia Joubert
parents of Samuel Kit Carson as:
FATHER:
Thomas William Carson (b. 2-24-1836 NC d. 12-21-1894 Gatesville, Coryell County, TX).
Thomas was first md to Samantha J Smith (b. Abt. 1848, AL d. Abt. 1869, TX).
Then Thomas md Martha Ann Smith (mother of Samuel Kit Carson).

MOTHER:
Martha Ann Smith (b. 11-10-1858, AL d. 4-7-1945, Gatesville, Coryell County, TX).
Martha's parents were FNU Smith (AL) and Nancy Wilkey (NC). Both of these names are listed on Martha's death certificate, along with the name of her husband (Kit Carson).
Please note that this Kit Carson was named for the famous frontiersman, Christopher Kit Carson. Sometimes people get these 2 mixed up.
I have found that Thomas William Carson's parents were: Samuel John Carson (b. Abt. 1805, NC d. Bet. 1860-1870, NC) and Nancy Queen (b. Abt. 1908, Buncombe Co NC d. Aft. 6-8-1880, Jackson Co NC).
Samuel John Carson's parents were: David Carson (b. Abt. 1760, NC or PA d. Aft. 1830, Haywood Co NC) and Catherine Patterson (b. Abt. 1770 d. 1835, Haywood Co NC).
The parents of Nancy Queen were: Samuel J. Queen (b. Abt. 1759, GA d. 8-22-1842 Union Co GA) and Dicey Rolls (b. Abt. 1764, GA d. 9-13-1849 Union Co GA).
