Your message of February 16 states that Roger Carroll may have been the ancestor of William Carroll who died in Goochland County in 1734. I think you are right; but, I have been unable to verify the link. This William Carroll I believe is my ancestor who settled in Henrico/Goochland sometime in the early 1700s. My research indicates that he came from Isle of Wight County and was the third generation of my Carroll family line in VA. His wife was Suzannah _____ ,and only two children (Sarah and William) have been verified.
The Roger Carroll of Goochland who died in 1727 had a son, also named Roger, who died in Goochland County in 1797. His will gave his three sons (William, Booker, and Josiah) the plantation where he lived. In describing how the plantation land was to be divided, the will mentions "Churchill Road" and the fact that his lands adjoined the land of William Carroll. Do you know where the land this will refers to is located? Also, several mentions are made in Carroll wills of this time to "land at Buck Island." Do you know where Buck island is located?
I am trying to determine whether the lands mentioned in these wills refer to the same lands that were later occupied by subsequent generations of my family after Albemarle County was formed from Goochland County.
Thanks for your help.
Ray Carroll, Yorktown, VA
