Pennsylvania Carrolls

Max, I am one of those seeking info on PA Carrolls. My ggrandmother was Anna Carroll of Philly? Since Philly and Chester are very near each other perhaps I am searching in the wrong place. I know Anna Carroll married Patrick Dunn in Philly and had 5 (out of 9) children who survived: Kate, Helen, Thomas, Mary and Anna. They were living in Philly when Anna Sr. died approximately 1913 in child birth. My grandmother was 5. I know that Anna Sr. had relatives living on 5100 block of Master St. and 5100 block of Harlan Street when Anna Sr. died. There was also family at 4995 1/2 Girard Avenue which is across the street from Our Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church and Cathedral Cemetery, commonly called Old Cathedral Cemetery since there is a new one. I know Anna had several sisters, that I actually met. Mary, called Mame, lived with my grandmother at 5141 Harlan in West Philly sometime between 1953 and 1960 when I was very young. She was a laundress who contracted severe arthritis from a mosquito bite and came to live with my grandmother. She eventuall;y became too ill and was forced to be hospitalized. There was also Julia, called Jules. I don't know what happened to her. They are connected to the Mauer family. We believe that Anna's father was Denis Carrol be 5/1830 in Ireland who married a Hannah. In addition to Mary and Julia, there were other children, Margaret b. 1868, Thomas b 1870 in PA, Joseph b 1874, Denis Jr. b 11/1882 PA., Hannah b 10/1880 in PA plus unknown children. It is Margaret who married Willie Mauer and had 2 known children, William Jr b 4/1890 and John b 8/1894.

Please let me know if there is a connection because this is my dead end. Thanks. Thomasina
