Husband's General Notes
"History of ...Rutherford Counties" by C W Griffin, page 135:
"Footnote No. 7 - Sheriff William Carson was born about 1773 in Pennsylvania, a son of Dan Carson. His mother was a McFarland. The family emigrated to Rutherford County about 1790 and settled near Hollis. William was one of a family of three brothers and four sisters. General John C. Carson was one of the brothers. Sheriff William married Dorcas Huey and settled on a good farm near Duncan's Creek Presbyterian Church, in the vicinity of Hollis. To them were born four daughters. General John Carson married a daughter of Capt. James Withrow, and reared six sons and six daughters. William served as sheriff of Rutherford County from 1798 to 1809 and from 1821 to 1836, and as state senator in 1810. His nephew James W. Carson, a son of Gen. John Carson, later succeeded him as sheriff. He was William's favorite deputy. William Carson is buried in the old Price family cemetery, near Hollis. The inscription on his monument shows that he died January 16, 1845, in his 72nd year. His wife died October 12, 1851, aged 75 years. He was an extensive landowner, and one of the county's leading citizens of his day, and a staunch member of the Presbyterian Church."
