ANNA LOUISE CARSON is the daughter of ELMER and ANNA McKNIGHT CARSON. She had two brothers, Lynn (her twin who died at age 14), and HAROLD CARSON, who was a school teacher.
LOUISE began work for Farm Securities (a firm that loaned money to farmers) and worked in five different counties in Tennessee. After retiring from this position, LOUISE worked for 28 years for the Tennessee Valley Authority in Knoxville in the Map Department. This explains her fascination with old maps of railroads and early wagon roads through our area.
LOUISE is a faithful member of the Scott County Historical Society, serving for many years as the organization's secretary. Over the years she has delighted in researching and recording family histories and assisting those who need her help researching various projects.
A distinction of which she is quite proud is that she has been a member of the First Methodist Church in Oneida since she was 13 years old.
She was the first president of the Hoe & Hope Garden Club and is an avid flower gardener.
It's been said that if you want a job done, give it to a busy person. LOUISE has led a busy life and has always found time to be involved in causes that were of interest to her and which she felt would improve or enhance her community. Those of us who are fortunate to have worked with Louise are thankful for that opportunity and wish her many happy "Golden Years."
