I am trying to find the link between my grandfather William Carroll Pennington Brick and Charles Carroll of Carrollton who signed the Declaration of Independence. Carrolls in New Jersey may be able to help me. Brick Township in New Jersey is named after the Brick family. Since the Bricks were a New Jersey family it may be there that the Carroll family connection was made. Some of the names you mention sound familiar. I am especially curious about the policeman you mentioned. Do you have any more info as to the family connections you mentioned with Charles Carroll of Carrollton.
