Mary Ann Carroll of Brigus? Newfoundland 1886 - ?

Hello! I've come to a dead-end in my genealogy search. If anyone has any information about this person or her relatives, I would greatly appreciate it! I am seeking information on my great-grandmother Mary Ann Carroll. This is what I know so far:

She was born in Newfoundland in 1886 or 1888 (different records suggest different years). Not sure on death date.

She came to the US (Boston, I think) in 1905.

She married my great-grandfather Mark Peddle (1881-1953) (also of NFLD- parents listed as Joseph Peddle and Margaret Mahony on marriage certificate) in Boston in January 1909. They lived in Bridgeport, CT.

What I don't know:

I don't know where she is from- in a 1939 immigration record Mary is recorded as the person signing for Johanna Carroll arriving from Brigus, Newfoundland (born in 1918). Johanna lists Mary as her Aunt-- but I think that is not accurate (see next paragraph!)

I don't know who her parents are. I have heard that she was born out of wedlock (mother a Carroll, father a Foley) and then raised by other family members (John Carroll and Bridget Carroll are listed as her parents on her marriage certificate).

An interesting fact is that a John and Bridget Carroll of NFDL have a child named Johanna born in 1918- so I thought perhaps Mary might have been raised by her aunt and uncle? Here is the info on the John, Bridget, and Johanna Carroll I found in a 1921 Port de Grave census:

CARROLL; John M Head m 1869 Jan 52 Foley's Hill
CARROLL; Bridget F Wife m 1876 Nov 44 Foley's Hill
CARROLL; Mary F Dau si 1911 Aug 10 Foley's Hill
CARROLL; Joseph M Son si 1913 Mar 8 Foley's Hill
CARROLL; Patrick M Son si 1916 May 5 Foley's Hill
CARROLL; Johanna M Son si 1918 Mar 3 Foley's Hill

If any of this rings a bell for somebody, please e-mail me!
