HELP! PLEASE! My ggGrandmother is Elizabeth Carroll (m. Stephen McKellips near Hamilton, Hancock, Illinois in 1860). She died about 1908 in Winona, Minnesota. On her death certificate, her parents are listed as William Carroll and Mathilda Berkely from Ohio.

An Adams County, IL census in 1855 lists William as 55 years old and born in Ohio and Mathilda as 25 years old also from Ohio.

It is possible the information I have for William and Mathilda is not correct as several facts contradict themselves, obviously taken from people's memories over the years. It is also probable that William was married before he married Mathilda given the age difference.

It is also possible they could have been from Indiana, Kentucky or Pennsylvania.

I am also interested in anyone who could be a brother or sister of William's.

If anyone can help me, it would be very much appreciated. Please feel free to e-mail me at the address linked to my name.
