Because of lack of work in Kentucky/Tennessee, from June 5th to the 13th of 1925 the Steven Green Carson family and the Thomas Newman Holman family drove to Davie, Florida in two cars. Stephen and Susan and their children Bill, Hazel, and SG were in one car. Newman and Lula and their children Claudia, Millie, Marie, Frankie, Raymond, and Easy were in the other. The trip took eight days. They went to Davie, Florida because the William David Griffin family was already living there. 

When Stephen Green Carson died on December 05, 1953, he and Susan had been married for sixty-five years and had a total of twelve children.
