Birth: Jul. 30, 1816
Franklin County
Georgia, USA
Death: Jan. 3, 1897
Jackson Parish
Louisiana, USA

Born the son of John Wesley Carroll (1788 1852) and Elizabeth Redwine Carroll (1788 1859). Married 20 Dec 1838 in Franklin Co., Ga. to Huldah Smith Hearne (1821 1856) and their children were John Franklin Carroll (1839 1910), Stephen Glynn Carroll (1841 1897), James Crayton Carroll (1843 1920), Nancy Jane Carroll (1845 ), Howell M. Carroll (1847 1860), William A. Carroll (1850 1860). Huldah died during a Wagon Train trip when the Carrolls moved from Georgia to Louisiana. Worms destroyed their cotton crop that first year and they returned to Georgia. There is a 1857 trip log of the second trip. The second trip had grown to some 40 people, including three slaves. They did not pick a very good time of year to make the trip but were a determined group. Lucinda Jordan, a widow, married John Wesley Carroll back in Campbell, Georgia on 9 May 1857 after Carroll's first wife died on the first trip. With Lucinda Bond Jordan (1819 1870) John Wesley Carroll had two additional children, Francis Carolyn Carroll (1858 1926), and Emily Katherine Carroll (1860 1926). During the Civil War on 15 Jun 1861 John Wesley Carroll enlisted with his brother James at Camp Moore, LA. in the Confederate Army in the 8th Louisiana Infantry Regiment. He fought in the Battle of Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and many others & Mustered out on Apr 9 1865 at Appomattox Court House while fighting under Gen. Robert E. Lee. At some time he was married to Jeanie Hearne and after the death of Lucinda his last marriage was around 1883 to Charity E. Thompson (1848 1929) and they had one son, Lewis Wesley Carroll (1884 1925). On August 18, 1957 hundreds of the descendants gathered at Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church in Chatham, La. for the "100th Wagon Train Celebration." A large memorial marker has been installed at the Brooklyn Methodist Church marking the remarkable Wagon Train of the families of 1857. This is the location of their wagon train's arrival.
