Hello Mark and Frank!
My husband is a descendant of both Austin Beasleys and also Hardy Carroll. I have done a spread sheet of every Carroll and variant spelling in the census in Duplin/Sampson County from 1790-1870 and grouped them in families. There should be a copy in the local library. I would love to see your tree, Mark. My email is SDL1177@cs.com. I agree that the Carrolls most likely came from Isle of Wight. I have traced the Chesnutts directly back there and several other Duplin families that were closely linked to Carrolls and Hollingsworths.
I have Hardy Carroll's pension papers. He does not say where he was born, nor does he list the names of his family. There are deeds from 1785, 1809 and 1810, and 1820 and others that I would like to see. I haven't explored the New Hanover deeds at all but that is the next most likely link. I could not find anything to prove or disprove a link to the Craven Island Beasleys but there is no really good place to tie Austin in with their tree.
I have two file boxes of info on these families so it is hard to know where to start. Hardy had about six daughters and probably two sons. I have names for four daughters (Polly, Lydia, Ann, and I forget). The son was Willis. Another daughter may be Dorcus. He seems to have split from his wife in the last years. He had no use of one arm and was indigent so different children may have taken care of them. Look forward to hearing from you both. Susan
