I descend from John Douglas Carroll #3 through his 3rd ? wife Julia B Stedman.
In my limited Carroll research I had not run across the other 3 men of the same name.
My Carroll Family bible does mention an uncle Grief Carroll that I never could locate.
I know that John Douglas Carroll (Richmond) married Rachel McGill 2/13/1831 in Amite CO, MS and had one son Augustus C Carroll who died in Limestone County TX between the 1900 and 1910 censuses.
I know John Douglas Carroll also married Julia B Stedman 10/16/1837 in Adams County MS where he was a blacksmith. She was from Belpre, Washington CO, Ohio. They had 5 children before she died in 1852.
John Douglas Carroll (Richmond) then married Fernell or Ternalah Doggett 8/13/1853 in Shelby CO, TN and had 3 children, the youngest of whom Richmond Taylor Carroll died in Dallas TX in 1934 and his death certificate clearly gives his father.
I thought that John Douglas Carroll (Richmond) MAY have married Rachel Rennick 1/28/1828 in Hardeman County, TN. Several of the children of Richmond Carroll were in Tennessee at that time before heading into Mississippi then eventually Louisiana and Freestone CO, TX
