Howard Tompkins married Nettie Carroll, don't
know the date. I am told that Nettie's parents
owned the land that became Central Park in
NYC. Their son, Douglas Carroll Tompkins is my
grandfather. Would like any info on Nettie and
her parents. Can anyone help?

Regina, thank you for your response- will also keep
in touch. Nettie Carroll was my greatgrandmother;
could Nettie and Suzannah have been related?
My grandfather-Douglas-is deceased, will have
to find out from another source. I'll keep you
posted. Please do the same. We could be related!...

I have reason to think my mother-in-law is a descendant. Her mother was Nora Fortune Does this mean anything to you?

I am trying to research my family. My mother always told me that our Carrolls were descended from Charles Carroll of Carollton, but I can't find a link.
My great-great grandfather was Raford Carroll, born in NC on Nov. 3, l808. Does any of this tie in with your research. Thanks for any help.

I'm researching husband's family- he is related to Charles Carroll of Carrollton
through the maternal side of family.
-1780(?)County Clare, Ireland Lady Mary Lynch (Heiress to Lynch landholdings) married a Carroll-was disowned by her uncle for marrying beneath her family status. Lady Mary Lynch Carroll's "husband" is the 1st cousin of John Carroll (first Bishop -Bardstown, Kentucky)who is the 1st cousin of Charles Carroll of Carrollton. There is a relation to Daniel Carroll of Maryland somehow. In the early 1800s, the Carroll
family came from County Clare, Ireland to the US and settled in Rodchester NY. -I would love to know any more links- Pleaswe reply on message board. C.D.

C.D.- thank you for the wonderful information.
I don't know too much about that side of the family,
that's why I still have a lot of gaps to fill.
I've been told that my grandfather's mother was
a decendant of Ch. Carroll--her name was Nettie
Carroll. She married Howard Tompkins- don't even
know where they settled. Nettie's parents, Im
told owned the land that became Central Park in NYC.
They sold it to the state or to the city for that
purpose. I don't know who Nettie's parents were--
I'm still trying to find that out, too.
If I find anything that may be of interest to
you, I'll post it. Thanks, again! J.S.

I didn't find out too much on the Carroll Side of Family, but I think I might have found Nettie Carroll- Here goes...
Patrick Joseph Carroll or Joseph Carroll-[same person]-- (1884-1950 - from Meath, Ire.) married a Nettie Jane Harbaugh- no children are listed from that marriage. Could Nettie Carroll have married Howard Thompkins. -Info found on
Nettie's parents were Joseph Hammond Harbaugh and Mahala Heck - {Note - I was looking under the Carroll surname on NY state
at the time.- Hope this helps- If so - reply on message board- C.D.
