My guess is Peleg was a descendent of Jesse Carroll Sr.Maybe not the one that was living near to him in 1840.The 1840 Jesse was the son of John and probably a close relative to Peleg (maybe his brother). Several of Jesse Srs. descendents followed the ministry and ultimately were involved with the upper leadership of the Baptist church in Texas.The Jesse of 1840 was a son of John Carroll and Elizabeth.John identified his sons and Peleg was not listed, maybe because John's wife was his second and Peleg had already left the home by 1826. My suggestion is to look closely at the first marriage of John Carroll and Elizabeth Hollingsworth. I descend from a different branch of Carroll's from Sampson County and biblical names were not used.These two branches have not proven to be connected except by marriage.
