Haven't located parents or siblings of James R. Carroll. As in almost all families, there is a tradition that James R. Carroll was half Indian, thought to be Cherokee, meaning one of his parents was full blood Indian????No proof on this, of course. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a million,
