Carson, David an Associate minister, was born in Greencastle, Pa., Oct. 25, 1799. He graduated at Jefferson College in 1819, and took a theological course in New York. After receiving several calls from different congregations, he finally accepted one from the congregations at Big Spring, Pistol Creek, and Monroe, in Tennessee. He was ordained in 1824; labored in Tennessee ten years, and was then elected professor of Hebrew, Biblical antiquities, chronology, and Church history in the Associate Presbyterian Seminary at Cannonsburg, Pa. He did not live to enter upon his duties as professor, but died Sept. 25, 1834. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 9, 3, 117.
