Would you mind sharing some information about your great great great grandfather John. It is possible that he was the grandfather of my great great grandfather Benjamin Hawkins Carroll b 1809.
We have unconfirmed information that Benjamin's father was John Carroll(2) who died before 1822, probably in Moore County, NC. This John(2) was the son of John Carroll(1)(possibly your ancestor), who was born about 1751 in Northampton Co, NC. We have a copy of John(1)will which lists his children as:John(2), James B.,Alexander, Jesse, Polly, Sterling, Charlotte, Hulda, Sister, and Susannah.
We have been searching for a long time for a confirmation of Benjamin Hawkins Carroll's ancestry. The unconfirmed info we have is that his siblings were James b.abt 1807, John, Huldah, Penelope, and Agnes. Some of these kids would have been young when their father died before 1822(he was reported deceased in John(1)will dated 1822) and probably ended up in various parts of the country. Benjamin Hawkins Carroll landed in Mississippi. Any information you have would be appreciated. Mitch Carroll
