The original chart of the Carson Family was kindly contributed by 1.1.6.3.1  Lois Dunchue, with later additions  from SA Genealogical Society database et al, including "150 Years of Settlement by the McPharlin Family in South Australia and Western Australia." I have given married names for girls checked against a list  provided  by Ron Hoskin on the Carsons, which appears in Bob Munro's McEvoy Family book. Merrilyn Hunter has discovered that  William John McMillan was married first to Matilda McPharlin who died in 1879 and then to her cousin, Mary Jane Carson (details below.) Eliza Jane McPharlin married George McMillan.
