My GMother Delia CARROLL and Earl CARROLL were two of the children born to the union of William Ruffin CARROLL and Emma Hawkins GREEN. This William Ruffin CARROLL was known by the nickname "Big Ruff". His brother was Berry CARROLL, my GFather. They were sons of Howell CARROLL and his first wife Ellinor. My GFather William Ruffin CARROLL was the son of Berry CARROLL and named for his Uncle "Big Ruff". He was nicknamed "Little Ruff".
I have been corresponding with a descendant of Thula Earp who was Howell's second wife.
I am now in Norman, Oklahoma but I was born and raised in Wake County, NC near Raleigh. My email address is email@example.com
. If you will send me your address I will send you a geneaolgy report from my records of Descendants of Howell Carroll. Can you open a document in MS Word 2000 format? I would be happy to share information with you. You have some information on a part of the family that I have not researched. I do not have any ancestor info on Howell but I am starting to work on the Census Records prior to 1850 in the hope that I can make a connection.
