Samuel Pickering Carroll, b abt. 1829, in SC, shows up in the 1850census for Hinds Co. MS with his possible grandmother, Elizabeth Pickering who had been there since at least 1840. He married Elizabeth Thornton there in 1852. Other surnames in this family include Wise, Lacy, and later Scott. This is my brick wall. I see all these references to Carrolls in MS and hope someone has parents for Sammie. Legend has it his mother was Elizabeth Ann Pickering before she married ??? Carroll.
