Notes for John CARSON
The 1762 Bedford Co, VA will by a John Carson made bequests of land in Buckingham Co VA to his sons, Ezekiel, John and Thomas Carson. These are the only sons of this John (though the source that pointed that out, and the one that listed the children are the same - a 1925 manuscript). One of the witnesses was James Carson, relationship undetermined.
