Christopher "Kit" Carson - Born Christmas Eve In Madison County 1809
Kit Carson is legendary in American History. He only lived to be 60 years old but back in those days that might have been a long time.
He was the ninth child born ourt of 14 brothers and sisters. His family moved to Missouri when he was an infant.
His father died when he was only nine and because of having to go to work he did not get a formal education.
Despite a lack of education he did marry three times and lived on to become quite a legend in the Southwest.
A friend once said, "His word was as sure as the sun comin' up," he was noted for an unassuming manner and implacable courage.
Kit Carson died in Fort Lyons on May 23, 1868 and was later buried in Tao, New Mexico.
On Tates Creek Road where this sign used to be posted is Kit Carson Elementary School named in his honor.
