I’ve been researching the Carrolls that lived on Susquehanna Point in St. Mary’s County, Maryland in hopes of finding out how my family fits in.Here’s what I have on them:
Capt. Henry James Carroll (d. Sept 16, 1775, Susquehanna) m. (in 1745) Araminta Thompson (d. 1818)
1. Henry James Carroll (b. 1767, d. 1814, Somerset Co.)

3. Charles John Carroll (b. 1769, d. Feb 25, 1815)
Margaret Mary Ann Carroll (b. 1764, d.Oct 6, 1822)
Juliana Carroll (b. abt 1765)
Harriet Carroll (b. abt 1766)
1. Henry James Carroll (b. 1767, d. 1814, Somerset Co.) m. (Jul 26, 1792) Elizabeth Barns King (b. 1770, d. Apr 1826)
Children (possibly more?):

Charles Cecilius Carroll (b. Oct 10, 1811, Somerset Co, d. 16 Jun 1882, St. Louis, Missouri)
Henry James Carroll (b. abt 1813, Somerset Co)
2. Michael Brown Carroll (b. 1768, d. Oct 29, 1831) m. Mary Anne (d. Jun 16, 1844)
4. Henry James Carroll (b. 1819, d. Apr 14,1884)
3. Charles John Carroll (b. 1769, d. Feb 25, 1815) m. ? (possibly Jennett/Jane Brown?)
Michael Carroll (b. 1802)
Charles J. Carroll m. (May 25, 1824) Ann Eliza Holton
4. Henry James/I. Carroll (b. 1819, d. Apr 14,1884) m1. (Apr 27, 1840) Lucretia Leeds Briscoe (b. Nov 6, 1819, d. Mar 11, 1841)
Michael Philip Carroll (b. Mar 11, 1841, Susquehanna)
m2. (Dec 2, 1845) Elizabeth Ann (Pile?) (b. abt 1818, d. Oct 22, 1892)
Mary M Carroll (b. abt 1846, Susquehanna)
William H (b. abt 1847, d. Apr 28, 1887) m. (Oct 31, 1876) Lucy Coad (b. 1856, d. May 2, 1887)
Francis (b. abt 1850, Dec 29, 1852)
John F. Carroll (b. abt 1856)
Eleanor A Carroll (b. abt 1854)
Frances Rebecca Carroll (b. abt 1858)
Also, here are some interesting things to note that might help you in identifying your line.This Carroll family was Catholic, however, I seem to remember hearing that the Henry James Carroll that married Elizabeth Barnes King became Protestant, as the King family was Protestant, and his children were raised as such.So, any decendants from that line are most likely Protestant.
Margaret Mary Ann Carroll (d. 1822) died unmarried.In her will, she lists two of her neices and a nephew, but I haven’t been able to place their exact location in the tree yet.They are Araminta Carroll, John Henry Carroll, and Harriet Sophia Carroll.She didn’t include any of Henry James Carroll and Elizabeth Barnes King’s children, so I would assume that neither of these three are from that line.In “Marriages and Deaths, St. Mary’s County, MD 1634-1900” it mentions that Michael Brown and Mary Ann Carroll only had one son.I would guess that John Henry Carroll is from Charles J. Carroll’s line.I futher suppose that Margaret only included in her will those nieces and nephews that were still living at Susquehanna.She didn’t include Charles’s sons, Michael or Charles. It looks as though both of them were living up the road in PG County at that point though.These are just my thoughts on the matter...
My ggggrandfather was John T. Joseph Carroll (b. abt 1824-1828, d. Sept 24, 1886) who married Ann E. Hooper (b. Apr 4, 1830, d. Aug 23, 1895).They lived at Susquehanna in St. Mary’s County.Stories have been passed down about the Henry Carroll born in 1819, although no one’s sure of the relationship.It’s thought that he was a cousin.
Here’s a short article on Michael Brown Carroll, if you’re interested: http://userpages.umbc.edu/~pdavis2/Participants/dawsonm/smc/articles_files/dec_pirates.htmhttp://userpages.umbc.edu/~pdavis2/Participants/dawsonm/smc/articles_files/dec_pirates.htm.Also, the house on Susquehanna that Henry (b. 1819) and Elizabeth Carroll lived in was bought by Henry Ford and is now a part of the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.You can check out the website for that here: http://www.hfmgv.org/village/porchesandparlors/susquehanna/default.asphttp://www.hfmgv.org/village/porchesandparlors/susquehanna/default.asp.
Hopefully, this helps you out some.
