Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Your ancestor, Thomas E. Carrell (Carroll), could very well have been descended from James Carrell and his wife, Sarah Dungan in the early 1700's. There is a book on their descendants that I have been trying to get a hold of, written in 1928 by Ezra Patterson Carrell. I myself am a descendant of James Carrell and Sarah Dungan. It might be worth the effort to locate a copy of this book. My local library is hooked to the Internet, and researched the locations where this book can be found. Perhaps you live close to a location where you could peruse it. Good luck!
