Not my family line, just sharing.

"J. M. CARSON, Assistant Postmaster at Idaville, was born in Monroe County, Tennessee, in 1823, and is the son of WILLIAM and ROSANNA (McCULLY) CARSON, natives of Tennessee and of Scotch and Irish extraction. WILLIAM CARSON came to Carroll County, this State (Indiana), in the fall of 1833, there reared a family of eight children, and died in 1852, followed by his wife in 1872. J. M. CARSON was reared a farmer, and at the age of twenty-three married MISS ELIZABETH, the daughter of THOMAS BARNES, born in 1826. The children born of this marriage were ADA, THOMAS W., JAMES A., F. C., ELIZA E., PERRY E., CLARA F. and JOHN A. Soon after his marriage, MR. CARSON came to Union Township, this county (White County), and farmed until ill-health compelled him to seek other employment. He engaged in merchandising at Monticello awhile, and made several changes up to 1861, when he settled in Idaville, where he has since resided, with the exception of two years, when he was in the dry goods trade at Monticello. In October, 1864, he enlisted in Company B, One Hundred and Forty-second Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and was honorably discharged in July, 1865. Both he and wife are members of the United Presbyterian Church."
