Dear Carroll, Maryland ceded parts of Prince George and Montgomery Counties to form the new Washington D.C. in 1791.
I have the family Bible of my ggg-grandfather John B. Carroll, born 1801 in “Washington D.C.” according to his 1884 death certificate.I have not been able to find anything of his ancestry, the vital statistics of the area being scrambled and fragmentary among several jurisdictions until after the War of 1812.
I was wondering if your Charles John Carroll of Prince George County might have been my John B. Carroll’s father, especially since Charles John Carroll’s wife’s maiden name Brown could account for the heretofor unknown B. in my ancestor’s name, and my John B. Carroll had two sons named John and Charles.
John B. Carroll moved from DC to Baltimore in 1819 or 1820, where he was a ropemaker and later owned a rope walk, or rope factory.I have most of John B. Carroll’s descendants and would be happy to share what I have.Please drop a line if you can confirm deny or want to talk about this possible connection. Thanks, Dick Webb
