Carroll Family Genealogy Forum
I have ancestors with the names Daniel and William Carroll of about the same time. Could our William's be cousins?
William CARROLL & Mary LYNN
William CARROLL b: in Born in Ireland - came to US before age 20 -
It may be possible that William came to Fayette County, PA with a brother, Daniel, and a Roman Catholic Priest, however, I do not know for sure that he even had a brother. William was a farmer and records state that that he was one of the earliest settlers of the region. The most distinguishing
characteristic of William is that he was Roman Catholic until the age of 40, when he joined the Presbyterian Church of Uniontown, PA.. He was an active member of the church and served as an Elder for many years. Newspaper articles state that William was cousin to Charles Carroll of Carrollton. William and May had 12 children. The only children I have found are, Mary and Daniel
