Dr. James G. Carson, Owner of Airlie Plantation

Just came upon a notation regarding the spiritual beliefs of Dr. James G. Carson, owner of Airlie Plantation in (East) Carroll Parish, LA.  It's found in the book, "Masters & Slaves in the House of the Lord:  Race and Religion in the American South, 1740-1870" edited by John B. Boles.

Also see Canebreak Plantation, which was also owned by Carson, In Adams County, MS.  Records available for view via the Briscoe Center of American History at the University of Texas Austin.

I wrote my Master's Thesis on Dr. James G. Carson's daughter, Katherine Carson Breckinridge. I did a lot of geneaology on her family and would be more than happy to share it with you. Best of luck!
