William Ray CARRELL and his wife Maggie HARRIS d. bef. 1900.His son James Henry CARRELL was b. 13 Jan 1894 in Van Zandt Co., TX.
Descendants said W. R. had a brother Jim who came to Hardin Co., TX (many ancestors of Carrell there).In James Irby Carrell's application for Social Security he said his parents were James Carrell and Mollie (Mary) Irby.
James and Mary/Mollie were in Delta Co., TX for the 1880 census.So were Thomas and Alcy Carroll (per that census).I also found Thomas and Alsey Carroll in the 1860 census of Oktibbeha Co., MS with 10 year old James and other children.
