My g-g-grandparents were William Carroll and Bridget Aylward. They came from Ireland and settled in Guelph, Ontario, where William was a teacher. Their son, Joseph F. Carroll was born in 1861 and married Emma Jewett in Chicago, IL. on July 8, 1885.They had four children, William, Matie, Frank and Elsie (my grandmother). So it would seem that your granduncle Edward was my greatgrandfather Joseph's brother. Do you have any other information on the Carroll and Aylward families in Ireland?Do you know of any other brothers or sisters?I look forward to hearing from you!
