My husband and I have been doing geneology on the Carrel/Carroll family for 4 years. His grandfather, Andrew Jackson was born in 1845, Andrew's fathr Thomas Simon or Simon Thomas Carrel/Carroll was from Pa. (no birth date. Simon Thomas left with his family and traveled to Bradley Co. Tenn. We think Andrew was born there. On some death certi. etc, one says born in Tenn. and one say born in Ga. I am reasonably sure it was Tenn. I have looked at the census and found the Carrell/Carroll family there. From there he came to Illinois. Maybe there is a connection.
