Kit Carson

Source Notes

Penfield Collection quotes biographer Stanley Vestal, "Kit Carson," for "in the morning." The biography reads "On Christmas Day in the morning, 1809." PC also quotes biographer Noel Gerson, "Kit Carson," for "born late in the evening." LMR cannot locate that biography.

"Kit Carson's Own Story of His Life," edited by Blanche Grant, 1926, states on p.9, "I was born on the 24 Dec. 1809 in Madison County, KY"
