This doesn't have any data. I'm posting it so you know I tried, and other volunteers don't duplicate my efforts. Also so I don't duplicate my own efforts in a senior moment.
I looked in the obvious places in the Modesto Library's Special Collections room. Carrol isn't in the Stanislaus County Burial permits, the 1920 History of Stanislaus County or in Mrs. Dix's Early Stanislaus Records. The county directories only go back to 1910. He wasn't there, either.
