In Reply to: Re: CHARLES CARROLL OF CARROLLTON COUSIN by Pam Knapp of 9601

Here are some notes I have taken over the years:

Eleanor Darnall 1704-2/3/1796 and Dan Carroll ?-6/19/1790
had the following children:

Henry {drowned during boyhood}
Daniel 7/22/1730- 5/1796
John 1st bishop in America archbishop of Baltimore

On March 21, 1785, Daniel Carroll received a commission from the Secretary of Congress to hold a treaty or treaties with the Cherokee Indians to bring the tribes of Indians within
the circle of influence of the US. Carroll, with Benjamin Hawkins of NC and William Perry of Delaware composed the committee. Daniel Carroll (of Maryland) had earlier connections with Indians, the Catawba and the Cherokee
in his work on treaty of 1756 when Gov Dinwiddie asked him to serve as an interpreter during the treaty. He appears to have understood Indian language from having
lived on land adjacent to the tribes.

William Carroll, son of Daniel Carroll III
(grandson of Daniel Carroll, signer of the
Constitution) was the Quarter Master General of Continental Army in 1777, and one of the first commanders of Baltimore. William
Carroll married Henrietta Maria Williamson,
dau. of David Williamson of Lanarkshire,
Scotland. David Williamson Carroll, son
of William Carroll, later moved to Arkansas
from Maryland, where he became the State
Attorney for Arkansas and served as a colonel
of the 18th Arkansas Regiment during the
Civil War and represented the Southern District of Arkansas in the Congress of the
Confederate States in Richmond.

This information is taken from a book
entitled Daniel Carroll: A Framer of the
Constitution, 1943 by Sister Mary Virginia
Geiger (dissertation). Also, see Appendix
D of a book entitled Charles Carroll of
Carrollton for genealogical notes. (I will
try to find the bibliographical info..I seem
to have misplaced it for now.)

Also, Martin Marty's book entitled Early
American Christianity has several pages about
John Carroll and his trip to the Northwest
on behalf of soliciting help against the
British as well as some interesting notes
about how the original Carroll family may
have secretly fled England for America
in disobedience of a law banning Catholics
from coming to America.
