I just emailed Faye Stryker about (I think) this same family! I am trying to locate my great great grandfather's family, Sampson Carroll who married Mily Hocut 3 Oct 1851 in Newton Co., GA. I have some unsubstantiated information that he might be the son of Moses Carroll born 13 Nov 1789 in Orange Co., NC. Moses parents were possibly Michael Carroll (b about 1766) who married Elizabeth Burroughs 20 Feb 1787 in Orange Co., NC.

As far as the native American connection, my daddy always said we had a Cherokee ancestor and I have not located any connection in my other lines. My paternal grandmother was estranged from her Carroll family and she died when my dad was born so I have few oral traditions.
Thank you for any help or advice. Faye Cook Wisenbaker
