[Note: I was not able to find the David Carson who died 1803. I believe the Samuel Carson is the Samuel Carson who was the father of David, born April 15, 1774 who married Mary DeBusk and Samuel, born about 1777 who married Katherine Margaret DeBusk. The John Brown may be the father of the John Brown, Jr. who married Elizabeth Carson, daughter of the David Carson who died 1803. Isaiah Bull may be the Isaiah Bull who was the father of the Mary Bull, born May 21, 1780, who married Solomon Griffin, born Sep 17, 1777.]

[Note: David Carson, Jr. could be either David Jr., son of the David who died 1803, or David, the son of Samuel Carson. Since Samuel Carson is listed with three tithables, I believe that the David, Jr. is the son of the David who died 1803.]
