We may have a connection. My recorded Carroll branch ends with Mary Carroll born Co. Laios (then Queens Co.) 1845. Married Michael Farrell in Minersville PA 1868 and was buried in Tremont PA 1915. They had two sons Anthony and Michael Farrell. Michael Sr. was killed in the coal mines shortly before Michael Jr. was born. The towns I mentioned are close to Swatara and Branchdale. Were your Carrolls coal miners and did they come from Co. Laios? I went to school in Schuylkill Co. in the 1970 with a Martin Carroll who I think was a distant cousin. He lived in Minersville Pa.
