Now here is the house when my grandmother visited in the 1970s:

A barn with a red door was attached to the back of this home. In the 1970s the barn was over 300 years old.

Patrick Carroll’s sheet in Grandma’s book. He was the son of John and Mary (Ferrigan) Carroll. Patrick met my great-grandmother Bridget when she landed in America at Castle Garden in New York on her own as a young woman.

Carroll Family in County, Down

My Carroll Family were in Leitrim then Clough then Sheeptown in County Down. Baptismal records show Rathfriland also. And John Carroll and Mary Ferrigan were married in Hilltown at the Roman Catholic church in 1860. I am not sure which church.

Can you help identify the people in the photos?

John Carroll Jr’s wife was named Bridget. They were buried in Newry.

From Grandma: “John came to Detroit many years ago but his family, outside of his son Pat (Packy), stayed in Ireland. John had gone home often and after staying 3 months would always return to Detroit. There were four children: Maryann O’Hanlon, Patrick, Katie.” Grandma did not list number four. John’s sister, Bridget Carroll Butler, lived in Detroit along with all of her children. They moved to Detroit in the 1920’s from Iowa.
