Thanks for such a quick response. I don't think they are from my family line. The Carroll's in my family line were located in southeast Missouri in Scott county. Most of them that are still alive are still there. Unfoutanetly it is a very rual area and they never kept any type of records. I have been told that when Thomas' children were born in the late 1800's to early 1900's they didn't even bother to register the births because it was not required in the state of Missouri to register them until around 1915.
