Recent info says Phillip C. Olinger was born Phillip Carroll Jr. Phillip Carroll Sr. died as a prisoner of war in Dec. 1813. After his death most of the children were taken in by other families. Phillip Jr. was "adopted" by an Olinger family, although it appears his mother had legal custody. He kept the Carroll name until after he married & left for Indiana. Exactly why he waited so long to change his name is unknown. It could be he didn't want to upset his mother who died around the same time as the name change.
