William M Carroll - North Carolina

There are a lot of us searching for a William M Carroll - born in the 1770s - He seems to be very elusive - Is it possible that he was a William McCarroll - listed in Rockingham County, NC on the 1800 census?
Perhaps the "M" is not his middle initial, but is the first letter of his last name? Just a thought - I know with all of the records being destroyed in the revolutionary war, indian wars, civil war, etc. - it is very hard to find documents to sustain his identity, but perhaps we are looking in the wrong place as well? A lot of Carrolls were McCarrolls before dropping the "Mc".
