Re: Carroll Family

My grandfather, William Joseph, had an older brother Richard. They also had a sister Catherine. Their parents were Valentine and Bridget (O'Reilly) Carroll from P.E.I..
Valentine was a mariner and supposedly died in some sort of accident at sea. Bridget also died supposedly of a broken heart and the children were separated.
William and Richard were sent to an orphanage and Catherine was sent to work in a boarding house in Gloucester, MA at age 9 to work. William escaped from the orphanage at age 10 and traveled to Boston to be near his mothers family. He lived in a barn and became a milk man. He located his sister and later on located his brother Richard in Cos Cob, CT. We have met Catherine's family who still reside in Gloucester. We have been unable to locate Richard's family. Richard was a writer in NYC.

Best of luck to you in your research,
Mary Carroll Cantin
