Thomas Carson was the fifth of six children born to George and Sarah Carson. He was born Sept. 16, 1677 in Youlgreave, Derbyshire, England.

He married Dorothy Watson Aug. 31, 1704 in Youlgreave. The couple were blessed with nine children as follows:

Sarah born Aug. 29, 1705; William born June 14, 1707; Elizabeth born July 30, 1709; Henry born Sept. 9, 1711; Thomas born Dec. 12, 1712; George born Apr. 17, 1714; Dorothy born Apr. 13, 1717; Francis born Nov. 5, 1721; and Henery born My 24, 1724. All were born in Youlgreave.
Son Francis married Martha Sterndale May 4, 1743 in Youlgreave. He died in 1804 in Youlgreave.

Thomas passed away Apr. 14, 1748 at the age of 72 and was buried in Youlgreave Church Cemetery. His gravestone reads: Here lieth the body of Thomas Carson. He rested from his labour April ye 14 1748 aged 72.

Thomas Carson is my fifth great grandfather and must have been a successful worker and family man to raise nine children. It is a great blessing to visit his grave site.
