Benjamin's granddaughter Mabel Edwards Harden told May Appleberry the following about Benjamin Carlisle: "Benjamin was a small man and wore a heavy beard. He owned 160 acres of land near Ash in Brunswick Co. He was a great hunter and shortly before his death he decided to try his luck. He did not own a gun at that time so he borrowed one from a neighbor. It is said he killed two turkeys with one shot. Those turkeys provided a great meal for his family and his neighbor. He died in the winter of 1894 and the age of 86.

According to Patsi Levi Carlisle, Benjamin's granddaughter, Benjamin and his brothers worked in turpentine. Note that his brothers and mother left for Alabama in 1833.
