Thanks for the reply. I do have copies of the Baptismal entries for the five children but not with me right now. I wonder is this Church you reference in the parish of Lurgen? There is another family of Carroll's; The father was Thomas and the mother Margaret McMahon. They were from from the Northern Meath, South Cavan Region. Their Daugher, Mary Carroll McGoldrick was born in Bailieborough in 1839. She always said she was related the O'Carroll's of Ely and also to Bishop John Patrck Carroll. She had many brothers and sisters but no Phillip that I know of..
Finally, I notice that you mention Plunkett. My great grandmother's family photo album has a photo of an elderly couple with the name Mr and Mrs Plunkett. I think the Photo is from Dudley, England. I wonder if you have any photos of the Plunkett's you mention? I don't know what was the reason for the photo in the family album. Just in case, there is a similar photo of Mr and Mrs Martin Lee.
I guess the more we search the more questions we find....
I hope that it might be possible for you to migrate your dna findings into the Carroll project because the greater number of Male Carrolls who participate will enable us to establish relationships, family groups, tribes, etc... Thanks..
