Some of cousin Jessie Carroll of Duplin's children went to Mississippi. (Joseph Carroll married Eliza Watson and settled in Carroll Co., MS.)My Rebecca was a sister of John Carroll of Johnston County who went to Pike Co. AL.
John Carroll of Johnston Co., my Rebecca's older brother went to old Richmond, Henry Co., Ala. scouting for the family. John returned to North Carolina and remained there until 1830 when he returned to Clay Hill in Pike Co. He had 8 sons and 4 daughters creating the Pike Co. Carrolls. David and Rueben Carroll came to Pike Co.Alabama and stopped at Clay Hill until July then moved to Ozark, AL.
In 1834 father James Carroll died in N.C. In December 1834, his widow Rhoda Carroll in company of Major James Carroll went to Dale Co, 1/03/1837 and died there 11 Sep 1861 at 84 years of age. My Rebecca no doubt went to Dale Co. AL with her mother Rhoda in December 1834.Check to see if that Rebecca ended up in MS as yours.If she stayed in Alabama, there could have been a Duplin Co. or Cumberland Co. Rebecca Carroll in the migration in the same timeframe.Extended family cousins often migrated together splitting along the way.
