Re: Hardy Carroll fact below
By a strange twist of fate, I am Frank Carroll now living in Kenansvile, Duplin Co., NC. I descend from William Carroll in Johnson Co. and Sampson Co.(then Duplin), James C. Carroll, and John L. Carroll were there too.My Carrolls migrated to Pike/Dale Co. AL. Samuel Brown Carroll is my ggg grandfather. Francis Marion "Frank" Carroll is my gg grandfather.Oscar F. Carroll is my g grandfather. In Pike/Dale/Covington, I am also Copeland, Wilson, Andress, Lewis, Fears, Ballard, and Mosely. Do you have any of those AL families in your line?
I do not see Hardy in my direct line from William Carroll. William's father was John Carroll of Wight Island VA/NC.Hardy probably comes from John's other sons Benjamin or Thomas Carroll.Or, he could be a cousin from William, that I have not tracked.
However, I do see four Carroll's serving in the Duplin Militia of James Kenan with Hardy Carroll as one:
CARROLL, Dempsey, Private, NC Militia, Pension # S 32161.
CARROLL, Hardy, Private, 10th NC Continental Line, Pension # S 41469, Library of Congress # 91099
CARROLL, Jesse, Private, NC Militia
CARROLL (Carrell), Thomas, Private, NC Militia
My James Carroll served with the Fayetteville and Sampson boys as a private with the N.C. troops under Captain Folsom and Col. Raiford.
I will check the census and track who Hardy was.
Thanks for local highligts,
