My research has been on the Allen side as of late (managed to get as far back as 1777) but still no luck on the Carroll side, as I am having trouble finding the parents of Nettie Carroll's parents...(Nettie would have been my great-grandmother.) Still looking though, just slowly! I never heard of him being a man of the cloth, however. I believe on of the Carrolls was, maybe an uncle of Charles, or something. Charles of Carrolton was a politician...but then, who knows...? Keep trying as will I!!
