About 1765, he married Elizabeth Dysart (sister of Col. James D. Dysart?) who was born about 1745. Their fifth child (third son) was Joseph.

Joseph Carson died March 2, 1815 and his wife Mary Evans died March 2, 1864. They are buried in the Elmwood Cemetery, which is located in the town of Mt Vernon, Rockcastle County, Kentucky.
