In Reply to: DeRosey Carroll d. 1863 AR by Carroll Patterson of 9600

I have found two references relating to the death of Derosey Carroll. One states that he was killed by a Union Cavalry troop under the command of a Captain Hart. The other says that he was killed by a nortorious Jayhawker (Southern Deserter, now engaged in banditry) while defending his property, in January 1862. Derosey Carroll's daughter, Mary Angela Carroll, married Algernon Sidney Cabell (later, Major, CSA) in 1859. Derosey Carroll stated in the 1850 and 1860 census that he was born in Maryland, about 1814. Does anyone have any information about the town/city of his birth? He was supposed to be related to Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Maryland, the signer of the Declaration of Independence. I have not been able to find his father or mother. In 1830, Derosey Carroll lived in Mississippi, and in 1840, he lived in Alabama (also Franklin County), and by 1850, he had moved again, to Franklin County, Arkansas (near Fort Smith). I would be interested in talking with anyone who is a direct relative of Derosey Carroll; my telephone number is 435-831-3555.
