"Wilson Rufus Carroll was born 13 January 1842 in South Carolina. On 12 May, 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate Army in Granitville, Edgefield County, South Carolina and served to the end of the war."

"After the war he and his wife, Nancy Ann Hester, moved to San Jacinto County, Texas around 1875 and resided there some twelve years before moving to Walker County near Huntsville."

"A brother, E. W. Carroll, also came to Texas and lived nearby with wife, Mary A. and children: Wilson, Mary, Tabitha, Levi and Frank. According to family legend, two brothers came to Texas and two brothers went to Florida. [Ed. Note: This is not legend, but in fact true. Brothers Patrick and Daniel Carroll, as well as, their father Burton and a sister, Mary A. Carroll moved into Suwannee County, Florida in the 1870's where they raised families and lived to the end of their lives. Wilson Rufus and Edward Walton Carroll as well as their sister Frances Carroll, moved into Texas where they raised their families and lived to the end of their lives.] Wilson Rufus died 31 December 1909 from typhoid a few days after his son, Wilson Bruce, died. W. R. is buried in Black Jack Cemetery. Nancy Ann Hester Carrol was born in 1836 in South Carolina. She was a small woman and smoked a corn cob pipe. She would rise at 4 a.m. to set her bread to rise. She lived in a log house near Huntsville until death in 1912."

"Children born to Wilson Rufus and Nancy Ann Carroll were: Willis, possibly died young; Henry, who lived near Sherman, Texas; Frances, married a Merchant, had a daughter Irene, and a son, whom Nancy raised after Frances died: David, died young; Wilson Bruce, Julian, married Polly Waldrip and lived in Teague until his death in 1972; Lee; and Maggie Valentine who married first Mr. Watkins and had William Riley, America Louise, and Bertha Lee. Later Maggie Valentine married Henry Edmond Johnson and had Annie and son. Maggie Valentine died in 1919, also her third husband, W. Cansler, and son, Riley. The remaining children were raised by Julian Carroll." [The above writing from "History of Walker County, Texas" in Clayton Library, Houston Texas. Item F142 by Ann Farnsworth]
