  • Note: Albert T. Carson
    My 4th Great Grandpa on My Mom's Side
    Albert was born Nov. 6, 1841 near London Canada, at a place known as the Talbot
    settlement. He came with his parents to Winnebago County, m. in 1850 at the age of nine.
    When he grew up he became a carpenter. When the feud broke out into the Civil War he
    enlisted in the 1st Co. K, Hlinois Calvary, on Sep. 6, 1861. Itis believed that he lied about his age
    when he enlisted. After Albert's assigned period ofthree years in service in the Civil War as a
    bugle cailer was over, he was honorably discharged and re-enlisted in the 8th Illinois Calvary as a
    private. Albert was 5' 911 when he entered the service and was in service until the dose of the
    war in April 1865. He was in Washington, D.C., at the time of President lincoln's funeral. After
    Albert was done with the service, he settled down and married Martha Janette Mathewson, a
    lovely woman born on Nov. 24, 1850. He made cabinetry and did some farming. Albert and
    Martha had two kids, Clyde William and Bertrand Wickliff Carson. Albert was 84 when he died.
    A Story about Albert's legacy in the Carson Family
    His descendants have carried on his legacy by passing down his bugle from generation
    to generation. His descendants have also passed down his Union flag and his pistols and
    gunpowder bag. My grandma, Kathleen Carson Jandaht has his bugle and his flag at the
    current time while my grandma's cousin has the pistols and gunpowder bag. Albert Carson's
    legacy as a family name has ended because no women have kept the family name. But my
    mother, Stacy Jandahl Mara, has tried to continue this legacy by naming me Carson in my
    ancestors' honor. I am famous in the city my great grandpa, Clayton Carson, lived in because
    there are stili a few male Carsons. But when the sad day shall come when they pass there will
    be no more Carsons.

    Albert T. Carson
    He was born November 6, 1841 in Canada; he came to the United States in 1850. He came with his parents to Winnebago, Illinois. He enlisted in the Calvary in November 1861 to fight in the Civil War. He was honorably discharged and
    re-enlisted in the eighth Illinois Calvary in 1864.
    He was active until the close of the war, discharged at Benton Barracks in July 1865. He was in Washington, D.C area during President Lincoln's funeral. During the war, horses were left in Yorktown because the boats weren't big enough to carry the horses across the river.
    He was never wounded or captured in the war. Albert played a very important part in the war. He was a bugler and woke up the soldiers to fight.
    He died March 8, 1926 at the age of 84.
    While he was sleeping, his horse rolled over on his bugle. It was damaged so badly no noise could come out of it. He had to hit it with a hammer to make it work again. It was passed down through the generations and now is the property of my grandma Kathy.
