Re: Jesse Carroll of NC and Leon Co., Florid

Mr. Carroll, I'm trying to reach you concerning the order of the wives of JOHN CARROLL as you have them listed in a note of Aug 2000 to Eunice:

JOHN CARROLL's 1st wife was ELIZABETH (HOLLINGSWORTH) - my descent is thru this line, thru their dau MARGARET (CARROLL) b ca 1799 who married as 2nd wife to WILLIAM LAMB (b 1783NC d 1862GA). It has appeared incorrectly in a num-ber of places so I always try to let people know...

ELIZABETH (HOLLINGSWORTH) & ANN "NANCY" (HOLLINGSWORTH) were wives 1 & 2, in that order, as above. They were sisters, daus of JAMES HOLLINGSWORTH, RS & wife, ELIZABETH "BETSY" (MERRITT).

Another correction is that it appears that WILLIAM CARROLL who died testate in Granville Co, NC ca 1781/82 was NOT the father of our line of CARROLLs... In that Will, he refers to his son JESSE, who "IS NOT of age" - whereas our JESSE b ca 1749 WOULD HAVE BEEN OF AGE at the time of the Granville Co, NC's WILLIAM CARROLL will....

Sorry to burst that bubble as our line back from JESSE, Sr seems to be in limbo right now....It had seemed like it was a well established line, but not now it seems, unfortun- ately.

Hope we are able to go back further w/these lines soon...
Thanks for your time,
Sarah Howell Studstill
