Aaron D. Carroll born around 1810 in New York was my gggg grandfather. He moved to Lenawee County, MI before 1850 and was a widower in the 1850 census. His children were Mary (b.1834 OH), Nancy (b. 1836 OH), Chandler (b. 1839 MI), Henry (b. 1842 MI), Sarah Frances (b. 1844 MI), and George (b. 1847 MI). Aaron married second Mrs. Martha Newsome and they had Adellia (b. 1858 MI). I believe my Aaron may be the son of Aaron Carroll and Cynthia Dresser who moved to New York from Massachusetts. I am descended from his daughter Sarah Frances Carroll who married first Isaac C. Denton 8 January 1862 in Bourbon County, Kansas. We have no idea how she ended up there since since the family remained in Michigan. Isaac disappeared in Nebraska sometime around 1869 and Frances returned to Michigan with three young sons. She married second Jacob Bordine 23 February 1881. They moved to Kansas and had two daughters. I would appreciate any information on these people, particularly if anyone can connect Aaron D. Carroll with Aaron and Cynthia (Dresser) Carroll. Thank you.
