Daniel and Tamerson

Daniel and Tamerson Carlisle were the youngest children of Ashley and Anna Carlisle. Tamerson very briefly described their relationship in a letter to one of Daniel's daughters.
I always felt because I was born on his favorite sister's birthday [referring to their father] + had her name + was the baby + only girl that he favored me but I do not mean let me get away with anything. I think girls as a rule do not get into anything. Mother favored Daniel more + always took his word rather than mone in our diffaculties. I realized it + took it for granted. He + I were closer in age + played together as youngsters. He seemed in later years especially to have close feeling for me + again no use which I laid to his condition at the time.
