Jean after receiving you message, I am sending you the following information. It looks like my George W.Carroll is not the same as yours. George Washington Carroll b: 9/20/1833, Sampson Co.,NC; was the oldest son of John Durham Carrol & Zilphia Chesnutt. He had 7 siblings. George married (1) Mary White Houston, b: 8/25/1836 and d 1/11/1894, in Duplin Co. They were married 8/20/1860. Their children were: Charles Fisher Carroll 8/8/1861 William Houston Carroll 9/9/1862 John Nicholas Carroll 1/24/1864 Anna Lorena Carroll 9/15/1865 and a George Washington Carroll, Jr. I have no other information on him???
G.W.Carroll died 9/12/1912 in Duplin Co., NC and both he and Mary White Houston are buried in Rutledge Cemetery, Kenansville, Duplin Co.NC
His second wife was Mary Edna "Mollie" Black Carroll (a cousin). They were married 11/17/1903. They had one child: Mary Washington Carroll 5/8/1907 and she died as a child.
Unless you G.W.Carroll, Jr. is your relative I don't think we can't make a connection. Was really hoping to do so.
One other bit of information G.W.Carroll was in the Duplin Rifles, 43rd. NC Reg. CSA. Let me know what you think. Jackie in CA.
