HARVEY FLOYD CARROLL, tinsmith, post office Turtle Creek, comes of the same stock as CHARLES CARROLL, the signer of the Declaration of Independence. His great-grandfather, DANIEL, was a pioneer settler in now Jefferson Twp., this county. THOMAS, son of DANIEL, died at the age of thirty-five years. His son, SALATHIEL J., married CHARLOTTE PETERSON, and now resides in Turtle Creek. MRS. CARROLL’S father, HARVEY HEATH PETERSON, was for many years a justice of the peace in Jefferson. He was county commissioner, and was prothonotary three terms. He was born in 1796, and died at the age of fifty-three years. His parents, GABRIEL and MARGARET C., lived to the respective ages of ninety-four and ninety-six years. GABRIEL PETERSON commanded a company under Braddock, participating in the unfortunate battle at Braddock’s Field, and afterward joined Gen. Washington’s troops in the Revolution. S. J. CARROLL began to learn the cooper’s trade when fifteen years old, and after working for some years at that took up carpenter work. In 1855 he went to Fulton, Iowa, where he remained six years, and then returned to Pennsylvania, spending most of the time since at Finleyville, Washington County. Since 1875 he has been here, and was engaged for eight years in repairing cars for the N. Y. & C. G. C. Co. The family is associated with the M. E. Church. The second child, WALTER LOWRY, is captain of an Ohio River coalboat, the W. W. O’Neil. The eldest, LAVINIA (deceased), was the wife of W. P. Montgomery, of Pittsburgh, and left a child, BERTHA MAY. H. F. CARROLL is the third child, and was born at Finleyville in 1854. He attended the public schools, and when fifteen years old began his present trade, and served as journeyman at Braddock and McKeesport. In 1875 he established his present growing business at Turtle Creek. He is a republican.
