I have a Thomas Carroll apparently from County Louth whose lineage apparently ended up in LaSalle county, north of Peoria. Wife Catherine, children consisted of, but not limited to Bridget, James, Matthew, Catherine, Judith, Owen and Christopher (from whom I am descended) who married Ann McCourt. Eventually this line mingled with the Mallens. I know Christopher lived from 1807 to 1863, but am unaware of more than this. If anyone has more information in this regard, I would truly appreciate touching base with you.
