My grandfather was Edward Carroll, son of John Patrick and Catherine Anne. I am just beginning my search of our family lineage, and must tell you I was a bit awe-struck to find this connection. Thank you!!
Edward married Margaret Dwyer and had 4 children. Patricia, Edward, Kevin (my father) and Catherine.
I also believe there is a tie to the Costigan Family which I am looking to find out more about. Fr. Hugh Costigan was the founder of a school in Pohnpei, ECI by the name of Pats. I believe he had a sister who was last residing in New Haven, CT.
Any information you could assist me with in either of the lines would be greatly appreciated.
