You descend through Luke Carroll and Elizabeth Murphey's son Alfred, I descend from their Son John Carroll(1796-1885)
There was supposably a Luke Carroll family bible and I understand the following children's names come from that Bible. If anyone has the Bible or a scan of the information it would certainly be helpful. I have not yet been able to verify these names and dates, other than John.
