John D. Carroll

Date Place
Birth 20 Feb 1808 Hancock County, Georgia
Marriage 1852-1854 ?
Death 7 Jul 1885 Freestone County, Texas


Mississippi (1858)


John D. Carroll is the father of Kate Aubry Carroll (1858-1889) and Richmond Taylor Carroll (1859-1934). John married Hannah Lea.

In the 1860 census of Yalobusha County, Mississippi, John Douglas Carroll has "Ternalah" (Hannah Lea), age 38, in his household along with Maria, age 5, Kate, age 3, and Richmond, age 9 months. I am not certain that this John Douglas Carroll is the same man as the John D. Carroll who is Kate's father, but I believe he is. I might have found Maria in the Freestone County, Texas marriage books as Mariah W. Carroll who married James L. Cook. I haven't found any marriage records for John D. Carroll and Hannah Lea. He was married three times previously.

Maria Carroll is the sister of Kate Aubry Carroll who married Almarine Vandiver Wigley.

A marriage is listed in Freestone County, Texas for Mariah W. Carroll and James L. Cook on 18 July 1872. Minister W.H. Park officiated. I am not sure if this the same Maria, but I think it is.
