I am not related to this person, his obituary appeared in the "100 Years Ago Today" column in the North Vernon (IN) Plain Dealer on 8/31/2012 for Aug. 29, 1912 . I thought it might be of help to someone.
Albert Emery Carroll, 45, superintendent of the Indiana School for Feeble Minded Youth at Fort Wayne, died at his home in that city Tuesday. The deceased was a former resident of this county, Vernon being his birth place. He had been superintendent of the above named institution since May 1904, his management being successful in every way. He was a cousin of Mrs. J.C. Cope of this city.
