Hi, I have a shot in the dark response. My ancestor Archibald Carroll was said to be born in Alabama around 1825-1831. His second wife wasa woman named Celina/SalinaHe named his children John 1845, Louisa 1851, Salina, Mary 1847, Michel Donathan 1853, William 1856, James 1857, Archie1866 and Levena 1878. They moved to MO and TX after that.
The census lists Archibald's dad as being born in NC.
Do you think your Benjamin could be a brotheror cousin to Archibald by any chance?
