Another Carson family that supports further examination is that of John Hazzard Carson, who was born in county Fermanagh, Ireland, on March 24, 1752. His parents were James Carson and Rebecca Hazzard, who was born in Timaskea, county Fermanagh. John Hazzard Carson emigrated in 1773. Much of this information is from Ancestry.com The Lost and Found. A note on Amazon.com says:

"John sailed for America in 1773 with his [older] sister and brother-in-law, Thomas [born in 1742*] and Katherine Carson Wilson [born in 1744, the daughter of James Carson and Rebecca Hazzard of County Fermanagh, Ireland], and their children, landed in New Castle, Delaware, spent time in Philadelphia and later sailed for Newbern, North Carolina. Later settled in Burke County, North Carolina. Fought in Cross Creek Expedition Scotch & Torie, G. Rutherford's expedition against Cherokee Indians. Made application for pension December 10, 1833 and was allowed." Source: via internet LaGroon Redmond lagroon@bellsouth.net.

His first wife was Rachel Matilda McDowell, who was born about 1756 (or 1765) in North Carolina. She was the daughter of 'Hunting John' McDowell. (See Genealogical Records: Early North Carolina Settlers, 1700s-1900s— Reminiscences and Memoirs of North Carolina, Burke County, Page 88. The Carsons of Burke County, "Historical Sketches of North Carolina" by John Hill Wheeler.) They were married about 1780 in North Carolina. Their children were: Joseph McDowell Carson, born about 1782; Charles Carson, born about 1784; James Carson, born about 1786; Jason Carson, born about 1788; John Carson, born about 1790; Rebecca Carson, born about 1795 in North Carolina; and Sarah Sally Carson, born about 1796 in North Carolina.

His second wife was Mary Moffett (McDowell) who was born on February 28, 1751 or 1752 another source says about 1760) in Augusta, Virginia. She was the widow of Colonel Joseph McDowell who had died in April of 1795, the daughter of George Moffett of Augusta county, Virginia, and the sister of Margaret Moffett, wife of General Joseph McDowell. (See Wheeler's Reminiscences, cited in the previous paragraph.) They were married in 1797 (another source says about 1800) in North Carolina. Their children were: Samuel Price Carson, born about 1800 in North Carolina, died in Hot Springs, Arkansas; Matilda Carson, born about 1801; and George M. Carson, born about 1802. Ancestry.com The Lost and Found; William Moffett Carson; and Jonathan Logan Carson.

He is buried on a hill near Carson House, Marion, McDowell county, North Carolina, which houses many family records.
