Descendants of William Carroll

Note: On my mother’s side (Beverley Keyes), I am also connected to St. Columban as a descendant of the Keyes family. For an overview of this family, please see the notes under Keyes, Casey etc. It is on my father’s side (Brian Delaney) of the family that I related to the Carroll clan.

Descendants of William Carroll

(I have learned that William's parents were James Carroll and Rosa Duffy and Catherine's Parents were John Cunningham and Mary Keogh.)

Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM1 CARROLL was born Abt. 1801 in County of Fermanagh Ireland, and died March 25, 1855 in St. Columban, Quebec, Canada. He married CATHERINE CUNNINGHAM. She was born 1801 in County of Longford Ireland, and died September 1, 1898 in St. Columban, Quebec, Canada.

Notes for WILLIAM CARROLL:
Hello Sean, my name is Gregory Carroll and I have additional information for you. Peter Carroll's mother was Catherine Cunningham and his father was William Carroll who died March 25th or 20th 1855 in St Columban- the Parish register says "on the twenty seventh second day of March...deceased two days since aged fifty four years..." so I can't exactly say when he died. William Carroll and Catherine Cunningham had the following children:

James b. 1831 Quebec
William b. 1833 Quebec
Thomas b. 1835 Québec
Michael b. 1837 Québec
Francis b. 1839 Quebec
Joseph b. Aug. 15 1840 St. Columban
Patrick b. Sep. 15 1842 St. Columban d. Aug 7 1856 St. Columban
Henry b. Dec 5 1844 St. Columban d. Jan 6 1923 White River Junction, Vermont
Mary b. Apr 29 1847 St Columban
Joanna (Jane) b. Jun 21 1849 St Columban
Peter b. Sep 27 1852 St. Columban

Elizabeth Kenna was born and baptized on March 16th but I guess they went with the 17th for obvious reasons. Her parents were Daniel Kenna and Mary O'Brien. The sponsors at her baptism were Michael Whelan and Catherine Howard. My connection is through Henry Carroll who married Mary Ann O'Neill in White River Junction Dec 25 1869 their tenth child was my grandfather John Carroll who married Laura Mears and their third child was my father George Carroll who married my mother Rita Delaney- yes I'm also a Delaney. I'm fascinated by the story
of Catherine Cunningham meeting William Carroll on a boat to New York. Is it true? Where did you hear it? I always assumed their families emigrated straight to Montreal. I hope this helps you. Gregory Carroll
