This is a bit late since you posted in 1998, but have just come across the correct name that I was looking for in relation to the Carrolls. My father was George Thomas Carroll b. 1908 d. 1981, son of Marshall E Carroll, b. 1887 d. 1932(?). Marshall was a brother to Oliver Carroll and son of William Samuel Carroll of Newnan Georgia
Any information that you have would be greatly appreciated, since it seems a bit difficult to find Carroll info.
