I am looking for any information about Thomas Carroll of Fayette County, Ga. In his will dated 1840 he named his children:
Polly Carroll Hammock (first name may have been Mary)
Sarah "Sally" Carroll Weaver
Melinda Carroll McBride
James C. Carroll
Thomas Carroll Jr.
Elizabeth Carroll
Marcus Lafayette Carroll
Frances Marion Carroll
Emily Carroll

I have only learned the marriage information for two of Thomas' children: Sally was married to Seaborn Jackson Weaver and Melinda was married to Andrew Jackson McBride.

Thomas died before the 1850 census was taken so I haven't a clue as to where or when he was born. I have seen, on the Internet, that some believe his father was Charles Carroll of Carrollton. However, Charles outlived his one and only son. There is a story that Charles had sons that he disowned but a close look at the church records only shows the one son. As a devout catholic Charles had all his children baptised and church records cannot not be altered. So, I am stuck and grasping at straws.

Any help, no matter how little, will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
