C.D.- thank you for the wonderful information.
I don't know too much about that side of the family,
that's why I still have a lot of gaps to fill.
I've been told that my grandfather's mother was
a decendant of Ch. Carroll--her name was Nettie
Carroll. She married Howard Tompkins- don't even
know where they settled. Nettie's parents, Im
told owned the land that became Central Park in NYC.
They sold it to the state or to the city for that
purpose. I don't know who Nettie's parents were--
I'm still trying to find that out, too.
If I find anything that may be of interest to
you, I'll post it. Thanks, again! J.S.
