I would like to find any information on the parents of William F. Carroll. He was born 1843 in Alabama according to a 1900 Census. He married in 1872 to a Almeda Merchant. He died in 1930 and is buried in Mississippi. Thanks for any information.

Your post was interesting to me because I come from a long line of Carrolls. We are based in Philadelphia primarily. John P. Carroll was born in Thurles, Tipperary in the 1850s and came to the U.S. in 1884.

Long story short is that one of his sons, John Carroll, left Philadelphia for Alabama at the turn of the century. No one knows why he left. He was killed in a dynamite explosion in the Town of North Birmingham. Perhaps he was working for a stone quarry?

Anyway, I don't know of any other Carrolls from Alabama and was curious to know more about your line?

Hope to hear from you!

I am a descendant of William F. Carroll OR it could be William L. Carroll. He married Almeda Elizabeth "Betty" Merchant. I am trying to find out who his parents are. there are a lot of Carroll's in Alabama at the time that William was born. He died Feb 1930 His daughter Lela J Belle Carroll is my Great-Great-Grandmother. Any information would be wonderful. Thanks so much.
