Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! I was born and raised in Howell County, Mo. Moved to Newton, Kansas at age 15, then to Texas at 20. I got interested in geneology in about 2000, and really enjoy finding relatives who don't know they are! My mom's family came from northern Tennessee, the Overton, Fentress and Pickett county region, and my dad's family is from Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Ontario, canada. I've been doing Find-A-Grave memorials for a while now and enjoy it very much. When I decide to upload a memorial, I use all my resources to try and learn all I can about the individual first, so I can include a decent bio. I believe they deserve that much from me. Hard as I try though, I do make mistakes. If you happen to discover one, please drop me a line and I'll fix it!

Hello John

My ancestor Jonas Murray was Elizabeth Murray Carroll's brother. They came to the USA together.

Lets talk

Wow! Thank you John - Edward Carroll biography
John, thank you SO much for the thorough biography of Edward Carroll who immigrated to Ohio in 1801. That dovetails with what I just read on David O'Carroll's page about Edward Carroll:


The story of the O'Carrolls on these pages starts in 1690 but they are an ancient family that can trace their roots to the early history of Ireland. In the 14th century, Teige O'Carroll defeated the forces of King Richard II which had invaded the Kingdom of Ely O'Carroll in 1395. The O'Carrolls had withstood the most powerful of armies of the time and repelled them. But by 1590 the O'Carrolls had lost most of their power and by the Cromwellian confiscations, most of their territory and so by 1690 the O'Carrolls fought at the Battle of the Boyne in a desperate bid to regain independence for Ireland from under the English yoke.

This site includes information about Col.Thomas O'Carroll and his descendants. He was the brother of Charles Carroll who emigrated to Maryland in 1688 (the grandfather of Charles Carroll of Carrollton who signed the American Declaration of Independence). Colonel Thomas O'Carroll fought and died at the Battle of the Boyne leaving two young sons. The orphaned boys were removed from their hearth to families far away in the North. One was to become a farmer in Moira the other we know not where.

This boy prospered, married and had many children. By the end of the eighteenth century some of his 10 grandchildren had moved to Cork and in 1800 Edward, who had inherited the homestead, sold up to a neighbour and emigrated to the USA settling in East Liverpool, in what is now Ohio in 1801. The family in Cork moved to England at the end of the nineteenth century.

So, if you would like to join me in following the family fortunes that took family members to revolutionary France, Brazil the emerging United States and the West Indies please click on any of the headings to the left that takes your fancy.

from David O'Carroll, August 2005
Above text from David's page:

It's been interesting discovering that Edward Carroll is descended from Irish people who already came and went from the America already!

I'm trying to discover if my ancestor Sgt. Vincent P. Carroll is related to this Edward Carroll of Ireland/Ohio.

Nehs/ Nease family
John, I left a message on the flower part of a memorial. I hope you read it, it gives the family tree back to 1740 with the name change on it too. He had 2 grandfathers on his side alone in the Rev.War. I do hope you are one of us.

Evaline Ledbetter Stover Allred, Memorial # 44859375
Mr. Carroll,

In the memorial for Evaline Ledbetter Stover Allred, you mentioned that she was married the 1st time to Winfield Stover. I have been unable to find proof of this fact. Could you please advise how you came to have this information?

William Carroll
William Carroll is my great grandfather, so I am interested in all I can find about him. My family tree is Dalfors,Peterson,Carroll,Stock(2)(1) on

William Carroll immigrated to the USA in 1947; he was about 22 years old. He married Bridget in in 1854, then he and his family moved to Northfield, Minnesota around 1860. He died on 9 Nov 1903 (Minnesota Cemetery Inscription Index, Select Counties) and was buried on the 11th according to his obituary 14 Nov 1903.

I know he born in Croom, County Limerick, Ireland, but I don't who his parents were. He had a brother James who also lived in Minnesota.

Just because we disagree on politics, doesn't mean that I don't like you. Please don't tell people that. ;)

RE: Millard Valentine Smith
Yes Wendall (John) I think I must be the guy. Got interested in genealogy a few years ago. My Smith ancestors are in Moffitt cemetery where you have done some memorials. Thanks for the help.

Do you happen to have a source for his children? I am not questioning it but rather I'm hoping you can help settle a debate. Lol. I am a descendent of his and my family and I are trying to determine if he was the father of George Collins or the grandfather.
