The Carson Family Cemetery is located on private land. It was formerly the 
old Augustus Marion Carson homeplace, in Pollok, Angelina County, Texas, 
off 69 N on the Bodan Creek. This land had originally been a part of a six
hundred and forty acre tract out of the Thomas Stovall Survey and had 
been in the Carson family since December, 1862 until it was sold very recently.

In the Spring of 1863, the Carson family moved to the six hundred and 
forty acres on the Bodan Creek. Their son, Jim, returned home from the 
Civil War, having been in a Union prison in Maryland since 1862. He died 
sometime before 1875 and was buried in the garden. Louisa Adelaid (Hicks) 
Carson, born in North Carolina, was laid to rest, October 23, 1875. 
Two other sons, John Paul Carson and William Hicks Carson, and one daughter, 
Emma Augusta Carson Harry, wife of Edwin Reece Harry, Emma's son 
(a grandson) Edwin A. Harry and another grandson Glenn Knox Sanders, son of E. Green
and Mary Adelaid (Carson) Sanders were buried in the garden. It is 
possible that there may be other graves, but they are unknown to the 
writer at this time. Augustus Marion Carson, died October 4, 1885. 

In the years after the cemetery was not used as a family burying place, 
part of the land including the cemetery was rented out to be farmed. 
The headstones were knocked over during this time and apparently some 
were lost. There are only three remaining. It  has been more or less 
abandoned.
