Hi Alex -- I just ran onto these posts and am not sure we ever connected. We are definitely cousins--- I am from William "Paddy" Carroll who I believe was the brother or uncle (depending) of Samuel Carroll. I have done a lot of research on this family and have been to Michael's gravesite. I have contacted 3 cousins that I am aware of from the line. For the life of me I can't determine where he was from....the information placed into the LDS database was a "guess" by one of the cousins so you can't relay on that. I have a photo of Michael with his 3 sons -- Samuel, Paul, and one other. Is Samuel the one that was killed in the mill accident? I can't recall now. Would love to hear from you. My email: email@example.com
. We are going to Ireland next year and I am sad I don't know my ancestral area. We have also done some things with DNA. Be happy to chat with you.
