I'm a descendent of Nancy Damron (d/o Hiram Damron and Margaret Ball) and John Carroll of Kentucky. My father has dark, almond-shaped eyes and dark brown/black hair, and has been called Black Irish. I assumed these traits came from the Carroll ancestors, because Carroll is, after all, an Irish name. Then I saw a picture of Nancy Damron, who had the same traits - dark hair and dark almond-shaped eyes. Is anyone aware of any Black Irish, Black Dutch or Indian ancestry traditions in the Carroll/Damron or Damron/Ball lines?
