Helen Carroll, born NY around 1887+/-.

Looking for parents/siblings/descendents of Helen Carroll who was born in New York (probably around 1887+/-). She may have married John F.Sheridan and had a daughter (b. 11/11/06) by the name of Helen Mildred Sheridan who grew up in an orphanage from about age 6 on. Rumor has it that John F. Sheridan and Helen Carroll died in a car accident when their daughter was about 6 (1912/3). However, this could be just a story and there may have been some other reason for putting the child in an orphanage. Rumor also has it that Helen Carroll had a sister living in New York and couldn't take the child because her husband didn't want her to.

Any family stories ring a bell on this one?

Helen Mildred Sheridan was my husband's mother who died when he was 2 years old.
