I forgot, his father was Luke Carroll Jr born Abt 1772 in VA and Luke served in the war of 1812. His mother was Elizabeth Murphey born Abt 1778 in NC but I know nothing of her family. Luke carroll Jrs father was of course Luke Carroll Sr and is reported to have sold some land in Granville NC on 21 Feb 1765.

Do you know if Alfred Carroll had any brothers? I am looking for an Alfred, or possibly Albert, Carroll/Carrel that had two brothers: John and James. They came from Eastern Tennessee. We think their father may have been William, but cannot verify. The James I am looking for was born about 1795.

I am decended from Luke Carroll Jr.'s daughter Eliza, who married William Lockmiller in Rhea Co. TN in 1825. In 1850 they were living in McMinn Co., TN Their son Alfred (Lock)Miller was married 3 or 4 times. His last wife, Roxanna Martin b. 1855 in Texas Co., MO had 3 daughters and 1 son. Their daughter Edith was my Gr-grandmother. I would love to find out as much as I can about Luke Jr., and Luke Sr. I've been doing genealogy for many years, but just getting started on this particular line. I don't know any of Eliza's siblings, nor any of Luke, Jr.'s. Would be grateful for any help.

You descend through Luke Carroll and Elizabeth Murphey's son Alfred, I descend from their Son John Carroll(1796-1885)

There was supposably a Luke Carroll family bible and I understand the following children's names come from that Bible. If anyone has the Bible or a scan of the information it would certainly be helpful. I have not yet been able to verify these names and dates, other than John.

What is known:
Luke Carroll (Jr) b 1772 VA (source of info 1850 census)

Married 1/25/1792 in Rowan Co North Carolina Elizabeth Murphey (see Rowan Co North Carolina Marriages 1754-1866, Volume 1, Names A-F, by Frances T. Ingmire, page 28. and North Carolina Marriage Bonds 1741-1868 )

6-12-1796 Birth of Son John Carroll in Tenn. (Not sure if they are in Rowan Co or maybe Iredell Co North Carolina) (Gravestone gives birth date, 1850, 1879, 1880 census give POB as NC)

1800 census- Luke Carrol- Salisbury twp, Iredell Co, NC
1801-1816- Childrens Births are attributed to being born in Washington Co Tenn.
1814- He is listed as a 1 LT serving from Washington Co Tenn in Allison's Regt of East Tenn Militia. (See WAr of 1812 service records and, Washington Co, Tenn, Lists men seriving in war of 1812 from Washington Co Tenn)

1830 census- Luke Carroll- Rhea Co Tenn
1850 census- Luke Carroll- Meigs Co Tenn (formed in 1836 from Rhea Co Tenn)
Other researchers state he died in 1850 or aft 1850 in Meigs Co Tenn.

With this information there is a lot to verify and find source records for. I would like to know :
Has anyone had found a will,estate, or burial record in Meigs Co Tenn for Luke Carroll or his wife Elizabeth?
Has anyone found church records in Washington Co Tenn for the births of most of the children? Were they Quaker?
Has anyone found any land records in Tenn or North Carolina for Luke Carroll?
Has anyone sent for the War of 1812 Military records from the National Archives?
Does anyone know about the whereabouts of the family Bible?
Does anyone know where in VA the Carroll family came from?
Has anyone sent to the Nat'l Archives for the Rev War Service record for Luke Carroll (Luke Sr???) states Luke Carroll, Private, VA, Roll Box 100, Roll Description VA.

This information is all quite new and wonderful to me. I am descended through Luke Carroll, Jr. & Elizabeth Murphy's daughter Eliza Carroll. She married William Lockmiller/Lochmiller/Loughmiller on 30 Nov 1825 in Rhea County, TN. They had 9 children. I am descended through their 4th child Alfred, b. 1834 McMinn Co., TN, d. 1922 Ninneka, Grady Co. OK. He eventually shortened his name to Miller. I can provide more details on Alfred and the names and approx. birthdates of the other 8 children if either of you would like. I am very interested in any documentation that anyone has of Luke Sr. or Jr., and Luke Jr.'s family. From what I was told by another Lockmiller/Carroll researcher, the family came from somewhere in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, but I don't have a specific location.
You can contact me at I welcome any communication with anyone researching this family.

Hi Susan,

I just read your message again and I want to thank you for all the information on our mutual Carroll family. However, I don't descend from Luke's son Alfred.....I descend from Luke's daughter Eliza's son Alfred. Unless of course you weren't referring to me in your message. I assumed you were since I was the last to post on this thread prior to your posting. If I've misunderstood I apologize. It does get confusing when families reuse names like they do. I can fill you in on some of Eliza's family if you're at all interested.
I was doing a bit of research today and did find Luke and Elizabeth on the 1850 Census for Meigs County. So if he died in 1850 it was after the census was taken. I don't find them in 1860, so assume they died prior to that census. On the 1850 census their ages were given as Luke: 78, and Elizabeth: 72. Hope this helps a little.
Thanks again for all the information.
