Pat's father was Joseph Carroll. My guess is that he was born around 1800. Pat came to the US vai Canada, or so I hear. I have no documentation for this. The 1880 census says that all of Pat's children were born in PA, except for Coley, who is not mantioned on the census page. Coley was born around 1851, but the next child was born abt. 1859. Pat supposedly married Kate Morrison in abt. 1850, so that makes the date of emigration betw. 1850-1859. As far as who he was traveling with, I would guess Kate (wife) & Coley (son). John Morrison is a 23-yr. old boarder in 1880, so maybe they had him with them when they emigrated. I don't know. As far as I know, they did not live in Massachusetts, but I don't know that they didn't. They were from Cork originally.
