You are fortunate to be dealing with a time period where good records were kept. Have you tried the traditional approach of sending for marriage, birth and death certificates? These records usually list parents and places. Do you have your fatherís birth and marriage certificates? If not you should. They might lead you to his parentís primary records. South Bend is in St. Joseph Co. Have you written there to request records for your grandmother?

(The above is known as unsolicited advise)

My only Carroll/Olson connection is that my mother Edith Carroll married Paul Olson in 1940, both from Michigan. In looking at my Carroll family tree I see two James Carrolls: James Dilly Carroll (1845-1883) Licking Co, OH to Marshall Co, IL, married Phebe Ellis in 1868, children unknown; and James Francis Carroll (1868-1947) Jasper Co, IL to Kalkaska Co, MI, married Ina Rouse in 1886, no children named James, Wayne, David, etc.
