History

The origins of Carlton's name is somewhat of a small dispute. An ex-county commissioner claims that the name was derived from Wilson Carl, where as A. E. Bones, postmaster at Carlton, stated in a 1925 letter that it was named for John Carl Sr., at the request of R. R. Thompson. These men may have been part of the same family as well.cite book | last = McArthur | first = Lewis A. | authorlink = Lewis A. McArthur | coauthors = Lewis L.
