From what I can find my Grandfather James Alfred Carroll Jr. (b. 16 Jan, 1923 Benton, Arkansas), is the son of James Alfred Carroll Sr. (b. 4 March, 1888 in Benton, Arkansas), and Ida Myrtle Rowles (b. 7 October, 1891 in Ethel, Texas). Ida Myrtle Rowles died within 4 months of my Grandfathers birth.
James Alfred Carroll Sr. (b. 4 March, 1888) was the son of Dr. Thomas Wesley Carroll (b. 25 May, 1853 in Valley Springs, Arkansas) and Martha (Marthy) Jane Wilburn (b. 21 August, 1859 in Pilot Point, Arkansas).
