After spending the week with my brother he told me that our dad said we were from the Black Tongue Tiger Clan or sept. I have searched all over the internet and cannot find a clan by this name. Our family begins with John and Abigal Carroll in NY (John immigrating from, I believe Co. Cavan in Ireland). They moved to Bloomington, Ill and had my great grandfather Phillip. He married Essie McCann who is from the McLoughlin or MCLaughlin family. Their son Joseph "Henry" is my grandfather. He moved to Iowa and had my father Philip Carroll. I would really like to know more info for John Carroll and the above mentioned clan.
