I'm looking for anyone researching this family...
Joseph/Joachium Carroll, wife Lavina/Ludvina with children Frank, William, Louis, Albina, Lillian, and others.
Joachium and Lavina traveled from CT to Iowa in the late 1870's.
They settled in Shelton, O'Brien County, Iowa where they were enumerated in 1880. Two sets of their siblings followed them and returned to CT.
They stayed in Iowa (appearing in the 1885 and 1895 Iowa state census) before moving to Covington, KY. Two of the sons worked for the railroad.
I believe that Joachuim and Lavina died in Kentucky after 1905.
Please contact me if this sounds like your family.
Have a great day!
