My John Carroll died in 1855 in Taylor Co, WV. I have found his death record, will, and 1850 census, but have been unable to verify his birth info (Feb 5, 1796 is the date being used by research majority) as well as his marriage date of Dec 3, 1815 to Susannah Trader. I am finding PA, WV, and VA listed as possible states of birth. He has the names of children John, Philip, Susannah, and Drusilla listed in his will but states he has a total of ten children in all. I am finding various states listed for the births of his children (again WV, VA, and PA).
I am unable to tie him to any other Carroll families at this time. Has anyone been able to find a connection, parents, etc? I would appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks, Susan Keefover
My grandmother was Ida Goldie Carroll, granddaughter of John Carroll.
