Joan,
I am living with30 miles of Gay's River and Carroll's Corner. I am also writing the history of Carroll's Corner and the surrounding area. My interest in the Carrolls is through my daughter in-law's mother. Their line comes from Mathew son of Patrick Carroll.
When I can I visit the Provincial archives of Nova Scotia. I have started to contact other Carrolls in the Carroll's Corner community so will keep you informed if you like. Also please send me information about your lines, as I don't have access to the USA records through ancestry.
I just wanted to straighten a few things out about the names of these communities. Patrick had a farm in Gay’s River - yet to locate it. Carroll's Corner name came sometime after Gay's River during 1890 - 1900. I found this out through audit records of the original one room Carroll Corner School. John was a trustee and it was suggested at one of these meetings that they should call the community Carroll's Corner. Carroll’s Corner is only about 2 miles south on HWY # 277. You can find it on Goggle Maps. Would you like a picture of John and his wife? I have also taken a picture of John and Alice's head stone. If you look at my tree you will find both. I will send you an invite to my tree. I share everything.
Hope this gets through?

Wes
