Martha, would you know if your Franklin Parish CARROLL connection might link with the J.D. CARROLL family in the 1880 Catahoula Parish,Ward 2 Census??? My GGrandmother was Arrie Ann CARROLL that married William GERMAN - their daughter, Lola GERMAN, was my Grandmother. In that 1880 census, J.D. and Sarah CARROLL are 57 and 56 years old and both said they were born in Mississippi. At this time, besides Lola's parents and sister in this household, there were two CARROLL boys - Clarance/Clarence: Age17, and Alex/Alexander: Age 11. I am trying to find out more about the J.D. CARROLL family (ancestry/descendants). I found that son, Alex, died in late 1870's and is buried along with an unknown CARROLL in the Old Pine Hill Church Cemetery in Catahoula Parish. Oh, Lola GERMAN later married Thomas Bowman ENSMINGER.
