States: Virginia: Floyd
I do hope that anyone that is researching the Carroll Families of Floyd, Va.,can give me any information concerning my great grandmother,Matilda Jane Carroll,born 1863. For a long time I was under the impression that her last name was Duncan, and so I have searched and searched for her under that surname only to find out recently that she was a Carroll.
I did find a Matilda Jane Carroll in the 1870 census. She was 7 yr. old and residing in the household of Michael and Louise Akers. A Martha Jane Lester was living in the same household. I am wondering if perhaps she was orphaned and just living in the household, or if her and Martha Lester were related? She later married my great grandfather,Wm. Elkanah Boyd. They lived in the Indian Valley and Alum Ridge areas.
