These are my ancestors from Johnston County. Major Carroll who is 1 year old on the 1860 census had a son named Joseph Ruffin Carroll who is the father to my maternal grandmother Agnes Ruth Carroll Haley. I just started exploring this side of my family. My mother only knew her grandfather’s name. This is so fascinating to me that they were FPC. Thank you for having a website with this information.
Thank you! There were several FPC Carroll households in the 1850 and 1860 censuses of Wayne and Johnston Counties. My assumption is that they constituted one extended family, but I have not been able to uncover the connections.
