My ggg grandpa was John Carson b. 1818 not sure where...They arrived in the US in Aug 1818. He was the son of John and Ann McIlrath Carson. John was b. 1789 and came with his brothers to the US. His father is thought to be James carson. I don't know of ANY Carson's doing genealogy. If I find one, I'll try to remember to connect you to them. I haven't been able to find any connections in Ireland yet.
