Carson was accused of cutting down ten trees, worth a total of twenty-five dollars, on March 1, 1860 on Ottawa tribal land in the Kansas Territory.

After the Indian Removal Act of 1830, two branches of the Ottawa tribe were relocated to 72,000 acres centered around the present-day town of Ottawa, Kansas.
