Carroll Station or Carrolltown

W. R. Carroll built a sawmill about 3 miles south of Kountze, TX in Hardin Co. The community at the flag stop of the railroad was called Carroll Station or Carrolltown.

In 1881 when the post office was opened, the town's name had to be changed because there already were several towns across the state called Carroll. It was renamed Nona after the sweetheart of one of the mill's owners.

Who was W. R. Carroll? Were he and his sawmill what drew other CARROLLs / CARRELLs to the area aroung 1900? What if any, was the relationship?
