I am not sure there is a connection here or not. My wife's grandfather was James Patrick Carroll (1887-1979), who was married to Genevieve Gillespie (1892-1946). They married in Boston around 1910. His parents were James Carroll and Mary Griffin (according to their marriage certificate). James was from County Cork Ireland, and Mary may have been from New Brunswick, Canada. If you know of any connection, or have any related information, please contact me, directly, at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
