To Whom it may concern:
I am seeking information on John Carroll. At the current time I know very little about him. I do know that his wife's name was Catherine (maiden name unknown). In 1828 they had a son named Jacob Carroll. According to Jacob's obituary, dated Sept. 27, 1911, and Sept. 28, 1911, he was one of twelve children born to John and Catherine: There were only three that survived, John Carroll, Newton Carroll, both lived in Hamilton County, and Harvey who lived in Hemlock. Jacob was born in Henry County, Indiana on March 14, 1828. He was married twice, 1st to Elizabeth M. Broughard, on Sept. 9th, 1849 (source Indiana marriage records, from the Indiana State Library Genealogy Division). According to Jacob's obituary his date of marriage to Elizabeth was Sept 27, 1843. Four children were born of this marriage. According to the obituary only two were living and they were John S. Carroll of Arcadia, former County Recorder of Hamilton County, and Rachel Carroll who married a Mr. George (first name unknown). Elizabeth died (according to his obituary) April 13, 1856.
His 2nd marriage was to Mahala Norris, May 2, 1858, she died March 5, 1878. They had six children, apparently only one survived, he was known as Delta Carroll, (his full name was Spencer Helena Delta Fredona Carconda Carroll, spelling of this name is phonetic, and was provided by his granddaughter Mrs. Clona (Carroll) Dawson), he was born November 1, 1860, Fairfield (now Oakford), Howard County, Indiana, Delta died March 27, 1940.
I do not know where John (father of Jacob) came from, all that I can tell is that he had a son who was born in Henry County, Indiana. Family history (that has been repeated many times) states that they were related to the Carroll's of Maryland. The most famous being Charles Carroll of Carrollton.
Any assistance in finding out where John Carroll came from and who his parents, and the name of his wife's parents and where they came from, and the names of the children (if possible), will be greatly appreciated. John is my 4th Great-grandfather.
