History

Born in Madison County, Kentucky, near the city of Richmond, Kit Carson was raised in Franklin.[4] Lindsey Carson, was a farmer of Scots-Irish descent, who had fought in the Revolutionary War under General Wade Hampton. There were a total of fifteen surviving Carson siblings: five by Lindsey Carson's first wife, and ten by Kit's mother, Rebecca Robinson, Lindsey Carson's second and last wife. Kit was believed to be the eleventh child in the family.[5][6] The Carson family settled on a tract of land owned by the sons of Daniel Boone, who had purchased the land from the Spanish prior to the Louisiana Purchase. The Boone and Carson families became good friends, working, socializing, and intermarrying.[citation needed]
