Notes for William CARROLL
414Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
Two hundred and 25 years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

October 30, 1996: This information supplied by Carolyn Colliers by way of Randall K. Hill. Carolyn is married to a descendant of Nathaniel Carroll and she is from North Carolina.

I believe that William Carroll and Nathaniel Carroll were cousins ( maybe even brothers cwc ). I found the following land records: 1787 Land Grant # 357 to William Carroll, 110 Acres on a branch of Potts Creek included his own improvements in Lincoln County, North Carolina to be registered within 12 months. "Own improvements" indicates that he was there prior to 1787. In 1803-4 this property was sold to William Jr. and Nathaniel. William Jr. William Jr. paid less per acre than Nathaniel. "I think that this is a possible indication that William Jr. was William Sr.'s son and Nathaniel was a nephew. North Carolina census Burke County, James Carroll shows a son Nathaniel's age, this James is said to be a brother of William Carroll of Wilkes County North Carolina.

1800 North Carolina census Burke County, James Carroll shows a son Nathaniel's age, this James is said to be a brother of William Carroll of Wilkes County, North Carolina.

William Carroll in 1803 received part of a land grant from his father ( the rest went to a brother or perhaps cousin Nathaniel ). He then moved to Macon County, North Carolina prior to 1820.

William Carroll Sr. was born about 1772 and died after 1840. He was married to Mary Polly Moore. They had the following children: William IV, Miles, Joseph, Daniel, Mary Polly, Solomon and three other children. We have other information on these chidren as well. Lawrence Wood has published some of his information on the Setzer family of North Carolina. He has bible records showing Miles and Daniel Carroll, marrying Setzer sisters Ruah and Mary. This is especially interesting since John and Henry married sisters ( Sarah and Nancy Hull ).

March 21, 1997 Email from Ruth E. Moore says that:

William Carroll married Mary Polly Moore in 1802 in Lincoln County, North Carolina. ( They are the father and mother of Miles Carroll ).

April 13, 1997: Email from Carolyn Collier: Your Miles Carroll descends from William Carroll who settled in the Rabbitt Creek section of Macon County, North Carolina.

April 25, 1997 Here is some miscellanious information in an email from Bertha Wise.

Daniel Carroll I, married Eleanor Darnall in 1727. Their children were as follows:

Henry - drowned in boyhood
Daniel II - 7/22/1730 to 5/1796
John - 1st bishop in America, archbishop of Baltimore d.1816
Anne
Elinor
Mary
Elizabeth



The John Carroll mentioned above was sent by the Continental Congress early in 1776 to Canada in an effort to lure the Canadians into an alliance against England. Through this effort to include a Jesuit in the party going to Canada, came John Carroll's introduction to Benjamin Franklin.

Of course, these Carrolls landed in America generally speaking on the western shore of Chesapeake Bay (Maryland). There is a old burial plot on the western shore where many of the early Carrolls were buried. Of course, most of these were Catholic. I wonder how any came to be Protestant...maybe in coming to America

April 28, 1997: Email from @ j-schisel@bgu.edu. Maria says " I have a little information on Lucinda Carroll's farther, William Carroll . William's father and grandfather were also named William and owned land in Granville County, North Carolina, and Franklin County, North Carolina. Do you also have this information?"

April 30, 1997: This information came from an email from Maria Schisel. The original information came from the work of Lavoice H. Carroll. He has done extensive research on deeds and land records in Granville and Franklin Counties in North Carolina.

My cousin, Sharon Sooter has come up with a different group of names for our ancestors. cwc Instead of William Carroll Sr. being listed as our ancestor, she has Nathaniel Carroll being our ancestor. She has other brothers and sisters listed for Miles Carroll. They are as follows:

Samuel Carroll 1806-
Solomon Carroll 1808-
Daniel Carroll 1816-
John Carroll 1817-
Absolomon 1818-
Rachel Carroll 1819-
Mary Carroll 1820-
Sarah Carroll 1821-

Some of these folks may indeed be the same individuals. But I know that some of them aren't. The dates are similiar but not the same as far as birthdays go. These may very well be our cousins through Nathaniel Carroll. His birthday is close enough to Williams to have been his brother. cwc

William Sr. had a possible six sons and two daughters. He had a possible brother named Nathaniel, who was always in the same area and also had a lot of children. So there is qauite a difference of opinion on who belonged to whom. The ones that we are reasonably sure were William Carroll Jr.'s brothers were, Miles, Daniel, Soloman and Joseph. The ones that are uncertain are John, James and Absolom.
