Hey, Dan, did I ever reply to your message? I was speaking of the elder Joseph Carroll- Joseph Carroll,SR. He migrated from Ulster,County Tyrone, Ireland with his family to Chester County, Pennsylvania and that is where Joseph Carroll, Jr. was born in 1746.He moved to Craven County ,(Eventually York County, South Carolina)with the rest of his family, married Martha Jane Swansea (Swancey,Swansey) daughter of James Swancey/Swancey and they had 11 children that are listed in the family Bible. Those children were: Samuel,b.1772, Elizabeth,b.1774, Jennet,b.1776,Sarah Harriet,b.1778,Joseph Elias,III (nickname JE),b.1781,John,b.1784,Hannah,b.1787,Henry S., b.1789, Elias C.,b.1789, Martha,b.1792, and Isabelle C., b.1796.
Considering the birth date you have on Thomas Marion Carroll, I would say that one of Joe,Jr's brothers might be the father.His brothers were Thomas Carroll,b.between 1722-1726,John H., born 1727,and Samuel Carroll,b.1742.
Hey, I just found your Thomas Marion Carroll, b. 1795-d.1831. He was the grandson of Thomas Carroll, brother to my Joseph Carroll,Jr. E-mail me at jholdrige.netzero.com. I have loads of info for you! God Bless. Judi
