Dixie; My gg grandfather was JOHN EDWARD CARROLL/CARRELL. He was born in East Tennessee in 1820. Could he be the son of the John Carroll/Carrell that you are looking for?? I have not been able to find the parents of my gg grandfather. Maybe your John Carroll is his father. My John Carroll married Martha M Long in Tennessee or Christian County Kentucky in 1840 and moved to Missouri, possibly Andrew County. Could we be looking for the same family. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org I would like to hear from you.
