    1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

    Age 1

    President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.

    With rail tycoon Collis P. Huntington’s establishment of his new town on the Ohio just downstream from Guyandotte in 1871, the economic fortunes of Guyandotte began a steady decline. In 1911 the citizens voted (260 to 70) to become part of Huntington.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish (Galloway) and northern Irish: probably a habitational name from an unlocated place in southwestern Scotland called Acarson or Carsan. This surname was taken to Northern Ireland in the early 17th century. Alternatively, it may be a hybrid patronymic name composed of Irish cearr ‘left-handed’ + English son ‘son’.

    English: variant of Corston, a habitational name from one of the many places so called in Norfolk, Shropshire, Somerset, or Wiltshire.

    In some cases also an Americanized form of Norwegian Kåsen (see Kasen ).
