Jacob Carroll

     Jacob Carroll was born circa 1775.1 He was the son of Thomas Carroll and Sarah (--?--). Jacob Carroll died before 1830 at Barnwell, South Carolina, United States.
     Biography of Jacob Carroll:
Jacob Carroll first appears as the son of Thomas Carroll (1745-1803) in Thomas Carroll's 1799, Last Will and Testament (See biography of Thomas Carroll (1745-1802).

In the 1800 Barnwell South Carolina Federal Census Jacob Carroll is enumerated2 as head of household, male age 10-16, with a female, age 10-16 (Jacobs wife), and a male under 5 (Jacob's son).

On 13 September 1803, during the probate of his father, Thomas Carroll's estate, Jacob acquired 42 1/2 acres of his father's farm on Windy Hill Creek in Barnwell District South Carolina. There were no deeds filed by Jacob, showing that he had sold that land. Likely that land went to his heirs without a deed being filed.

We were not able to clearly locate Jacob in the 1810 Census. He may be one of the two males, age 16-26, living and enumerated with his brother, Thomas in the 1810 Census of Barnwell County. However, there are no young children enumerated in that household, so it is uncertain that one of the males is Jacob. We did find him in the 1820 Census3 of Barnwell County, as Jacob Cabrol, age 45 up, living not too far from his brother, Thomas. The 1820 Census shows he had two sons, one age 10-16 which we believe is Jacob's son Abraham and one age under 10 whom we believe is Jacob's son, Burton. There is one female, under 10, two females age 10-16 and one female age 26-45 whose names we do not know.

The above are all the records that we have been able to find where Jacob's name appears. We could not find Jacob in the 1830 or 1840 Census so can only presume that he died before 1830.

The 1800 Census cited above suggests that Jacob was under 16 years of age which suggest he was born about 1784 or later. The 1820 Census suggests he was age 45 and up which suggests he was born before 1775. It seems unlikely that Jacob would have been married and had a young son at the age of 16 as the 1800 Census suggests. We thus believe the 1800 Census is incorrect and have determined that the 1820 census was correct, thus suggesting Jacob was born about 1775 or perhaps earlier. This puts Jacob as the same age as his sister Mary. This would suggests that both Mary and Jacob are the children of Thomas Carroll and his first wife, Sarah.

Thomas Carroll

M, b. circa 1745, d. October 1802
     Thomas Carroll was born circa 1745.1 He married Sarah (--?--) circa 1770. Thomas Carroll died in October 1802 at Barnwell, South Carolina, United States.2
     Biography of Thomas Carroll:
The earliest records of Thomas Carroll that we have found are entries in the Deed Index of Barnwell County South Carolina where two deeds were indexed. Both Deeds show John McCullough granting land to Thomas Carroll. The first deed3 dated 24 June 1788 is for 85 acres on Windy Hill Creek for 20 pounds. This deed is for what Thomas Carroll describes in his Will as the upper part of his land. The second deed3 dated 23 June 1788 is for 85 acres on the Edisto River for 10 pounds. This deed is for what Thomas Carroll describes in his Will as the lower side of his land. Both deeds were filed at the Barnwell Courthouse on 18 October 1803 which was almost a year after the Will of Thomas Carroll (discussed below) was submitted for Probate.

The households of Thomas Carroll of this biography and his son, Jacob Carroll are enumerated in the 1800 Barnwell South Carolina Federal Census. The household of Thomas Carroll 1 contain a male, age over 45, (Thomas) with a male age 10 to 16 (son Thomas), a female, age under 10 (daughter Elizabeth) and female, age 26-45, (daughter Mary). The household of Jacob Carroll4 a male, age 10-16 (Jacob), with a female, age 10-16 (Jacob's wife) and a male under 5 (son of Jacob). Based on these censuses and the Will and Probate papers, discuss below, we estimate that Mary was the oldest child and was born about 1770, Jacob was born about 1784 according to the 1800 census, but a later census suggest he was born earlier than 1784 so we have estimated his birth at circa 1775 (See Biography of Jacob Carroll), Thomas was born about 1786, and Elizabeth was born about 1792. The large age difference between Mary and her three siblings suggest that Thomas may have been married twice, with Mary being the child of his first wife and the others the child of his second wife. Using these birth dates we estimate that Thomas Carroll of this biography was born about 1745.

On 30 November 1799, Thomas Carroll of this biography signed his Last Will and Testament,5 a typed transcription of the Original Will that was in the Probate File6 is as follows:

From the Probate File6 we find that this Will was filed with the Barnwell District Court on 1 November 1802 and appears to have been proved on 7 December 1802, as on that day Mary Carroll was named Administratrix of the Estate. Also on 7 December 1802 the Court issued a Warrant of Appraisment 6 directing Mary Carroll to appraise the "goods and chattel" of Sarah Carroll and report back to the Court before 1 December 1802. This suggests that Sarah Carroll was the deceased first wife of Thomas Carroll, as there is no Sarah mentioned in the Will. Also the need for a Warrant of Appraisment implies that Sarah Carroll held a legal interest in the Thomas Carroll estate that had to be appraised. One month later, on 7 December 1802, the Court issued a Warrant of Appraisment 6 directing Mary Carroll to appraise the "goods and chattel" of Mary Carroll and report back to the Court before 1 January 1802. This Warrant of Appraisment of the "goods and chattel" of Mary Carroll suggests that Mary had appraised Sarah Carroll's estate and was to return an appraisal of her own estate. This suggests that Mary was an heir of Sarah's estate. There was no inventory of Sarah Carroll's property in the Probate file, which suggests the estate of Sarah Carroll was real estate. As will be discussed below, Mary was found to be heir to half of her father’s farm during the probate proceeding, yet she was not named in the Will. On 22 December 1802, Joseph Youngblood, Thomas Washington and Abraham Odum were appointed to appraise the estate of Thomas Carroll, deceased. Exactly one year later, on 22 December 1803 Youngblood et al. reported to the Court an inventory of the estate of Thomas Carroll valued at $222.62.

Thomas names his four children, Jacob Carrel, Thomas Carrel, Elizabeth Carrel, and Mary. In the original Will, and not on any copies that were created from that Will, the Carrel name has been inserted with a caret ^ following the names of Jacob, Thomas and Elizabeth, but not for Mary. Insertions of this sort into a legal document is never done as it can give cause as to whether the insertion was made before or after the signing of the document. Obviosuly the Will had been prepared with only the first names of the children. Then someone inserted the Carrel name for all except Mary. This omiisson may suggest that Mary was married at the time and whoever added the Carrel surnames did not have space to insert, the usual, "wife, of John Jones". Certainly there is little room in the Will to put in such an insertion and if such an insertion had been made it would certainly give cause to whether such an insertion was made before or after the Will was signed. We thus suspect that Mary may have been married, divorced or widowed by 1799 and went by or kept her maiden name in court proceedings in order to not have to rewrite the Will. Mary Carroll is the only name that appears in court documents that we have found.

Elizabeth is a bit of a mystery. Her siblings all received part of Thomas's land except Elizabeth who only received one guinea. Perhaps, as part of the estate settlement discussed below one of her siblings, likely Mary received a larger share of the estate to compensate her for caring for Elizabeth until Elizabeth achieved adulthood

The Will submitted to the Court on 1 November 1802, suggests that Thomas very likely died sometime in October, 1802. That is the basis for our determination of his date of death.

On the same date of 18 October 1803, when the 1788 deeds discussed above were filed, a third deed was also filed. The third deed7 dated 13 September 1803 was from Mary Carroll to Jacob Carroll for 42 1/2 acres on Windy Hill Creek for 9 pound 6 shillings, and 4 pence. This appears to be Mary selling half of the land she likely received from her mother Sarah’s estate during the probate of Thomas Carroll's estate to her brother, Jacob. Later Barnwell deeds7 show Mary selling the other half of her land to her brother, Thomas in 1825. It would appear that during Probate in 1803, Mary was the owner of the lower side of her father Thomas's farm and her brother, Thomas, the upper part. Likely to settle the estate and meet Thomas Senior's request to give "one half of my land on the lower side" to Jacob, Mary had to transfer half of the lower part of the farm to Jacob. Thus by 1804, we have son Thomas owning 85 acres in the upper part and Mary and Jacob each owning 42 1/2 acres in the lower side.

NOTE: Burton Carroll (1808-1893), son of Jacob Carroll, indicated in the 1880 Federal Census that his father was born in Ireland. This suggests that Thomas Carroll, his wife or wives, daughter, Mary and son, Jacob may have all been born in Ireland. This also suggests that Thomas and family emigrated from Ireland to South Carolina sometime before 1788 when Thomas bought land in South Carolina. Children, Thomas and Elizabeth were born in South Carolina.

Thomas Carroll

M, b. circa 1786, d. before 1850
     Thomas Carroll was born circa 1786 at Orangeburg, South Carolina, United States.1,2 He was the son of Thomas Carroll. Thomas Carroll married Sarah Walker circa 1812 at Barnwell, South Carolina, United States. Thomas Carroll died before 1850 at Barbour, Alabama, United States.
     Biography of Thomas Carroll:
Thomas Carroll is first found named in the Will3 of his father, Thomas Carroll (1745-1802) (See biography of Thomas Carroll (1745-1802)). He is enumerated in the 1800 Census2 of Barnwell District South Carolina in the household of his father, Thomas. He is enumerated as head of household in the 1810, 1820, 1830, and 1840 Census of Barnwell District South Carolina. The 1840 Census showed that there was not an older female enumerated on the 1840 census suggesting that Thomas'?s wife had died. There were two children, one male and one female under 5 enumerated in that census suggesting that his wife had died very recently. We were not able to identify Thomas in the 1850 Census of South Carolina or any other state.

In 1802, Thomas inherited half of his father's plantation of 85 acres on Windy Hill Creek. In 1825 he purchased4the 42 1/2 acres of his father's plantation on Windy Hill Creek from his sister, Mary who had acquired it during probate of their father's Will. In 1831, Thomas sells 85 acres on Windy Hill Creek to David Hair4. Those 85 acres being the land he inherited in 1802 from his father. On 29 March 1834, Thomas, et al. sells4 135 acres from the estate of John Rivers to Andrew Shipes. This 1834 deed also infers that Thomas's wife is a Walker. On 13 Feb 1838 Thomas acquired 360 acres in Barnwell District from Thomas McWhorter for $360. On 12 July 1838 Thomas sold 121 1/2 acres on South Edisto River to Hugh Reed for $121.50. This appears to be all his remaining interest in his father's plantation. Thus by 1839 he appears to own 360 acres in Barnwell District. We were not able to determine the disposition of those 360 acres.

Beginning in 1837 or perhaps earlier, the older sons of Thomas had removed to Barbour County in south east Alabama, which the United States had acquired by the 1832 treaty with the Creek Indians. They were no doubt seeking inexpensive land and opportunity. By 1850, Thomas removed from Barnwell, with his younger children, to join his older children in Alabama. He likely died in Alabama before 1850.

The names and dates of birth for the known children listed below were obtained from the on-line International Genealogical Index (IGI) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Unfortunately we were not able to determine the original source of the names and dates. The dates were all exact dates of month day and year, except for one, which was the year only. This suggests that whoever submitted those names and dates to the IGI very likely obtained them from a family Bible. A comparison of the birth dates with the ages indicated in the 1820, 1830 and 1840 Barnwell Census of this family resulted in a remarkably close match thus suggesting that the dates of birth are correct.

NOTE: We only list the names and birth dates of these children and show them as born in Barnwell District South Carolina (The IGI record only shows them as born in South Carolina). Several other researchers have compiled much more information on these children and their families. However it appears these researchers were not able to connect these children to Thomas Carroll of Barnwell. For more information on these children go to FamilySearch.org and look for them in Family Tree.

     Biography of Wilson Carroll:
We believe that the Wilson Carroll, age 50 born South Carolina found in the 1850 Barnwell is the son of Jacob Carroll. Wilson first appears in the 1800 Census2 of Barnwell District, South Carolina as the male, age under five in the household of Jacob Carroll. Wilson next appears as Head of Household in the 1830 Census of Barnwell South Carolina. On 5 November 1849 Wilson Carroll sold 98 acres by Buck Creek to Edwin Stanslell for $150.3 The next record is the 1850 Census4 of Barnwell District South Carolina, where Willson age 50, Martha, age 35, William, age 15 and Sarah, age 4, all born in South Carolina are enumerated.
