Dear Michael,

Didn't know if you have the same email address, so I post here and hope for a reply.

I'm not directly related to King Carroll that I know of, but am hoping for some further information on this family. My Carroll ancestors were also in Anderson/Campbell/Union Co TN, and I believe there may be some connection.

My 3rd Great grandfather was Elias S. Carroll, born Feb 1838. He died in July 1911 in Lafollette, Campbell Co TN. His wife was Rachel Sharp, a granddaughter of William "Station Bill" Sharp and John "Fisher" Loy (maternal). They had at least 11 children. Both are buried at Sharps Cemetery in Lafollette (on the golf course).

Elias' parents were Jesse Carroll and Catherine (Wilson?). He had the following siblings: James, Elizabeth, Sarah and Emiline. There may be other siblings, I don't know.

Do you know if King and Elias are related? If so, how? Your help would be greatly appreciated! This has been bugging me forever! They were about the same age, lived in the same county, etc. It makes sense there would be some connection...

Please let me know. You can email me directly at
