I am searching for information regarding Michael Carroll born July 23, 1810 in North Carolina. What I need is confirmation from someone about his relationship with Rebecca Bell born 1820 in Randolph County North Carolina. All of the Bell family say that Michael Carroll fathered a child out of wedlock with Rebecca, my great grandfather Thomas Jefferson Bell January 1863 in Nathan, Pike County Arkansas. I looked at a census showing Rebecca traveling in the same party with Michael when he moved to Georgia and also she was with his party on his move to Arkansas. Thanks for your help.
