Thank you for your message. There is a great possibility that there is a connection. The Carroll's I refer to were Edwin or Edward Carroll and his wife Susan Turner. They lived at that address. They came to Chicago and had several children. My grandmother was Martha. The names of some of the other children were Albert, who was a stage actor and also wrote crossword puzzle books; Thomas, who had several children with Maggie and lived on the west side of Chicago;Gene who moved to Cleveland, Ohio, I believe and had a radio program callled the Gene and Glen show, (He married Mary Gay who was in vaudeville with her sisters and had daughters-- the first was named Joan); Sarah, married a man named Hickey and they had children who were aerial performers in Ringly Brothers circus and perfomed throughout the world, George; and Raymond. There were others I believe also. Please message me at if you are interested. The addresses are close so they might have been related or just friends.
