I'm looking for relatives of Dr. James Carroll, born June 1854, Woolrich, Eng, died 1907 Washington, D.C. He was famous for experimenting with yellow fever. He had at least 5 children, James Carroll b. 1889, David Carroll b 1892, George Carroll, b. 1894, Mayble b. 1896 and Carolyn b 1990.

my Grandmother
According to what I've found, there were SEVEN children born to Jennie and Dr. James Carroll. Univ of MD has extensive info of the medical biography, not so much on family.

My mother was a grandchild of Dr. James Carroll by way of her mother, Carolyn. I am sorry I do not know how many children James and Jennie had, but I will look into it and post when I know. What is your grandmother's name?

According to the census, some of which ask the question of the ladies: how many children did you birth, and how many are still alive. It's been quite a puzzle! Jennie and the major had SEVEN children, all of which were living when he died. Still, the applications for her pension indicate only SIX children... it took a while before the significance of the "UNDER SIXTEEN!" My grandmother was the baby, Ethel- -less than two when he died. James H was around eighteen and it looks like he stayed home briefly before seeking his fortune or fun or something!

Compare the census from 1900 and 1910 and you'll see all seven kids. Carolyn/caroline was born 1900 with Ruth and Ethel coming before the death of the major who was dead by the time of the 1910 census. It's fun to read between the lines! As a mom, I think about having SEVEN children to deal with while grieving such a loss! Military wives STILL learn to DO while husbands are away on tour.

I grew up hearing about the Beuhlers, Aunt Caroline and Uncle Frank...family came from out of town but I never kept them straight.
