Joyce, It is so exciting to hear from a member of the family. Below is what I know about my gr.gr.gr.grandmother Ansley Howard Carrell. I see that you are from the same line, I can't wait to hear from who.
Ansley Howard CARROLL came to South Carolina at the age of 12. In 1836 she moved to Autauga Co., Alabama. Leonidas HOWARD was named one of the executors in her will. Both Ansley and Leonidas lived in Mulberry, Autauga Co., Alabama.

Check family search.org for ancestral file on Henry Fox and wife Mary Kendrick. Shows that son Henry Fox died in Craven, Richland Co, South Carolina 1770. Shows a William Fox, date and place of birth and death not shown. Can't attest to accuracy of information, but the file says that Henry and Mary's daughter Unity Fox married John CARROLL and that they had a son Jacob CARROLL born about 1728 in Brunswick County, Virginia.
I also was recently contacted by another member of the family we think descended from Jacob Carrell.
