We were just in Ozark for a mini family reunion and I began searching for some Carroll history and stumbled across your blog posts.

I am a descendent of Major Carroll as well and thought I would touch base.

My father, Benjamin Sam Carroll (Birmingham), and his brother, John Marvin Carroll (Montgomery) were both born (fraternal twins) in Ozark to Mary Powell Carroll and John Branch Carroll. They also have an older sister Mary and all still survive. They still jointly own some of the original property near Ozark city limits that is used today for timber farming.

Their father, John Branch Carroll, my grandfather for whom I’m named, worked at the M. O Carroll Warehouse but passed away in 1968 when I was only 2 years old.

My grandmother Mary Powell Carroll passed away in 1999 shortly after a series of strokes.

Anyway I thought I’d email you and thank you for your excellent research. I’ve forwarded it to my Dad and I know he’ll really enjoy perusing it.
