The following information is taken from my family history as compiled by my grandmother in 1955.
James Carroll had a son named William Carroll who married Nancy Delaney Melton.William was a Civil War Soldier who died in 1865 of black scurvy.William and Nancy Carroll had two children:Fanny Carroll and James Madison Carroll (my great grandfather)who was born at Thomasville Georgia December 16, 1865.
After the death of William Carroll, Nancy Delaney Melton Carroll lived with a man named Tom Pharliss (sp?) and they had four sons:Joe Carroll; Harmon Carroll; Walter Carroll and Tom Carroll.
James Madison Carroll married Susan Sapp in 1883 at Dade City, Florida, they had two sons:John Carroll and Clinton Carroll.James Madison Carroll and Susan Sapp Carroll divorced +-1890.
On February 11, 1892 James Madison Carroll married Nancy Jane Wommac (Wommack, Wommach?)they had the following children:Rosa, Jessee James, Cleo, Hilda, Henry, and my grandfather Noah Ernest Carroll who later changed his name to Norman Ernest Carroll born July 1898.
I would greatly appreciate help tracing the William Carroll who died near Thomasville Georgia in 1865 and his father James Carroll.
