I can't answer your question. but, I can add some infor to yours. In my tree I have a Francis McCarroll married to a Jullia. In addition to your John, they had at least 2 more children. Patrick, born 1850 married Bridget Heffernan and Ann Mary, born 1851 married Joseph Daniel Heffernan. Bridget and Joseph Daniel were sibblings and children of John C Heffernan and Mary McGinn. I have more info on both of these lines. The Heffernans lived in the south end of Nichol Township near Guelph.
Contact me for further info.

I have more information that shows your John, who married Annie Murphy, as being born 1868 in the USA. Annie was born in Ontario. In 1881 They were living in Mt Forest, Ontario. I have a listing of all their children if you are interested.

Thank you very much for your message. Naturally I am very interested in any information you might have. I think that the John McCarroll you are speaking of may be the son of the John McCarroll I am searching. The 1871 Canadian census shows John McCarroll as being 29 years of age in 1871, his wife Annie Murphy was 26 according to the Canadian census, and the children are listed as Catherine aged 4, Francis aged 2, Mary Ann aged 3 months. However, I am reading my John McCarroll's obituary notice from March 14, 1922, and it states " He leaves to mourn his widow, five sons: Frank J (John) with the Canadian national Railway at Sudbury; John, James, and Martin, engaging in fruit farming at Pateros, Washington State; and Austin L,.druggist of Litchfield, North Dakota; and one daughter, Mrs. Geo A. Beley, Mt. Forest. Two sisters also survive; Mrs. Joseph Heffernan of Guelph: and Mrs Walsh of Medina, New York...".

The 1881 Canadian census shows John McCarroll as being 40, Annie Murphy as being 33, Catherine as being 14, Francis as being 13, Hohn as being 10, James as being 8, Martin as being 5, and Bridget as being 2. Interestingly, the 1881 Canadian census shows all of my John McCarrols children as being born in the US except for Bridget in Canada, and his wife Annie Murphy as being born in Canada.

I also had en e-mail from Mary Ann in Kitchner, Ontario who also advised that one of John's brothers, Patrick married a Bridget Heffernan, and one of his sisters, Catherine, married a Heffernan, maybe the one mentioned in the obituary of John McCarroll dated March 14, 1922. If you like, i could dig out the information and forward it to you. I also have the obituary notice of John's wife, Annie (Murphy) McCarroll who died October 16, 1924 in Mt. Forest, as well as her father, William Murphy, who died October 22, 1895.

Surnames: McCarroll, McArdle, Cosgrove
I believe Francis McCarroll is actually Francis McArdle. I believe this because I have ancestors who came from Ireland into Quebec before coming down into the US. The father's name was Patrick McArdle. (Mother was Catharine Cosgrove) They had many children, including my ancestor Henry and also a Francis. (Oh, also a James) I have legal documents showing Patrick leaving land to his sons. In with these documents, I have a will belonging to Francis McCarroll. His wife is Julia Kennedy. On the legal documents, Francis' name is spelled McCarroll and McArdell. They refer to land Francis had in Ormstown, which is where my ancestors originally settled. They also refer to a debt with his brother James about sheep. James has signed the documents James McArdle. He and Julie are acting as representatives of their deceased husband/brother. I don't think Francis or Julia were able to sign their names. When I look through church records and census records I see McArdle spelled many different ways; however, when the immigrants who could sign their names did, almost always McArdle is spelled McArdle.
