I probably won't be much help, but a Richard Carroll, born October 5, 1849 in Hyde, England married a Sarah Marshall who was born September 23, 1852 in Kidderminster, England. They emigrated to Massachusetts maybe in the 1880's or 1890's and I believe they had about 6 or 7 children. I have a picture of an Ethel Carroll, their daughter, about age 4. The photo was in a book belonging to my Uncle Norman Willis and was found in his house in Blackpool, England after he died. This Richard Carroll died about 1915 in New Bedford, MA. I have no idea how my Willis family is connected to the Carroll family, but I am trying to find out. Do you have any more information that may give a clue to your Richard Carroll and his family? Thanks for any help.
