Pioneers In-Law

Prepared by Stephen M. Lawson

Kinship of a Couple Notable Pioneers

Except for one location in north western North Carolina, virtually all of the families included on this site were among the second wave of pioneers to settle on the frontier as it moved west across the continent between the late 18th century and the early 20th century. Most families settled in an area for two generations at most before moving on. Ancestors of the compiler resided in every state east of the Mississippi River except ME, FL, OH and IN. And they were early settlers in what is now AR, MO, KS, OK, TX, NM, WA, OR and CA.

It is often difficult to find relationships to some of the historical figures involved in settling the frontier of America. In many cases, they have relatively short American ancestries. Frequently, stories of possible connections are passed down through the generations and cannot be substantiated by available records. To provide some more distant kin than qualify for the Notable Cousins section on this site, known Pioneers In-Law are presented here - perhaps others will join them.

Selected links are provided to some of the web sites which give additional information on the related pioneers. For the record (and for the web spiders), the pioneers here are Daniel Boone and Kit Carson (born Christopher Carson or Christopher Houston Carson).
