William Samuel Carrell had 2 sons Samuel Milton (my grandfather) and Thomas B and 4 daughters Ada, Juanita, Louella, and Edith. I think William, my ggrandfather may have been born in Claiborne County Tn. His siblings listed in 1860 census were Franklin 18, James 16, Benjamin 15, Sarah 13, Nancy 12, Fanny 10. His father is listed as William S 38 also born in TN, and mother Mary 40. I am interested in finding where these Carrells/Carrolls/Carrols came from originally. The earliest record I can find is William Carrol 18 in the 1840 Claiborne County Tn cesus living alone. I'm only going on age and have no other info. Any information on this branch of the Carrells would be greatly appreciated.
