There is a row of stones related to the Joseph Carson family. From left to right:

· A newer double stone for Mack H & Martha Brown. (Daughter of Joseph Carson and his wife Mahala Jane Owens, and the sister of Stephen Green Carson)

· Stone for Mahala Owens (wife of Moses Cummins, Milt Hixs, and Joseph Carson) the mother of Stephen Green Carson.

· A weathered stone marked “Carson.”

· Two spaces with missing stones. I believe these are for Joseph Carson (father of Stephen Green Carson) and his first wife, Catherine Harness.

· A stone for “E. J. Carson, daug of Joseph and Catherine Carson May 7, 1845 – Jan 8, 1930”

Nearby were the stones for the parents of Mack Brown:
· James Brown July 2, 1835 - Nov 7, 1906
· Cynthia Brown Oct 20, 1842 – Feb 13, 1923
