Elizabeth Carson died at her home, near Oakdale, Ills., June 23d, 1889, aged 62. She was born
in Coumnty Monaghan, Ireland. Early professed her faith in Christ under the pastoral care of Mr.
Cathcart. Emigrated to this country in 1848. Soon after was united in marriage to Mr. John
Carson, with whom she settled in Washington county, Ills., connected with the Elkhorn
congregation, and was an earnost defender of the Covenanter faith till her death. It is the
common testimony of her acquaintance that she was able to "rejoice with them that do rejoice,
and weep with them that weep." Her temperament was sympathetic and impulsive. For devotion
and consideration as a wife and mother she had few equals. She leaves four sons, with their
families, and a husband, all in the church, to whom her memory will be an inspiration, and her
name a sweet household word. Her death was very painful, being caused by lockjaw, induced by
the piercing of her foot by a nail. This death made a deep impression on the community: more
than seventy vehicles were in the line of procession at her funeral. May the serious impression
made be salutary. D.G.T.

John Carson, Sr., a pioneer o Washington county, and one of our county's most respected and
well known farmers, died at his home near Pilot Knob December 12, 1900, where he had lived
almost 55 years. Mr. Carson's late illness was of about three weeks' duration and developed into
paralysis of the nervous system.
A large concorse of acquaintances gathered, on Friday, to show their last respects to their
departed friend and followed the remains to the Elkhorn cemetery where the deceased was laid
to rest beside his wife who predeceased him eleven years ago.
Of the immediate family four sons survive, J. Moffett Carson of this city, and William, Robert
and David, who reside near the old home place.
