Robbie, I'm sorry it took so long for me to get back to you --- I lost the page for a long time! Anyway, I have since found out that my ggf (Will Carroll) was quite different from the way I had imagined him. He may have been born in Brownsville, TX instead of MS. He lived in GA as an adult, and was a traveling salesman with many close friends among the Cherokee and Choctaw tribal chiefs. I still don't know his parents' names, but family names include James, Ernest, Fred, Joseph, Charles, and George, but no Ross or Robert. I estimate his date of birth to be about 1848-50, but may be earlier. He actually met his wife (Elizabeth Merchant) in Leake Co., MS, and lived there the rest of his life. He did not die in TX, but was probably born there. See any familiar names? Thanks for your help!
