Thanks to Eugenia for sending me by e-mail some McCarroll info. from the newspaper, "The Carroll County Conservative," written by William Franklin Hamilton as follows:"The McCarroll brothers came into the county early and were worthy citizens.James and Alex were soldiers in the Mexican War and Alex enlisted with Co. K, 4th Miss. Regiment in 1861 for the Confederate Army.He was honorably discharged in 1863, being too old for service.Hinds (Milton Hinds) McCarroll enlisted in the 4th MS Calvary and was wounded severely in battle, from which wound he suffered as long as he lived.Dr. J. Z. and Newton, sons of Ansley McCarroll, were Confederate soldiers, the former a member of the 20th Miss. Regiment and the latter in the 30th Miss.(note Alexander Newton McCarroll participated in the Battle of Chickamauga and was prisoner of war until the close of the war).The daughters of Ansley McCarroll married and lived in different neighborhoods and their descendants may be found all about the old home."
Lt. James Parmele, brother of Laura Parmele McCarroll and appointed guardian of her two children, enlisted in Co. H, 30 Reg. MS and upon his return home to be at the bedside of his seriously ill wife, died of Camp fever on June 20, 1862.
I appreciate also receiving info. from family letters, which are a treasure.As for marriages of Ansley's daughters, I found that Lucy McCarroll mar. W. B. Stanford on 22 Feb. 1881 and Kate McCarroll married William B. Marshall ca. 1874 in Carroll County, MS. Ansley's son, Alexander Newton McCarroll, married Aimie(Anna) Vick in Carroll County on 18 May 1875. Acc. to Eugenia at least one of the Carroll County marriage books is missing - the one during the Civil War times.It would explain why I wasn't able to find info. on all of their marriages.
According to census info. John McCarroll was born in North Carolina.There were only two McCarrolls in North Carolina on the 1790 census and no tie could be established to his father, Charles M. McCarroll, so far.I found Thomas McCarroll as well as some of the Higdons(relatives of Betsy Higdon, Charles McCarroll's wife) in Chatham County, NC during this time frame but again was not able to establish a tie to Charles McCarroll.Even though James McCarroll, son of Thomas McCarroll, migrated to Warren County, MS by 1830 from North Carolina, there is no evidence he was a relative.If anyone has found any more helpful info., I would appreciate receiving it.Thanks.Bonnie
