Simeon was the first son of Stephen Carroll and Parizade Dekle of Thomas Co., GA. He served the Confederacy in Company E, 29th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, Army of Tennessee, C.S.A.
"It started out so simply that cool crisp Saturday morning of September 19. Federal General Thomas sent two brigades to crush a lone Confederate brigade reported to have crossed the Chickamauga over Reed's bridge. Crush them right after sunup before breakfast is digested. Then they met Nathan B. Forrest. Open fire! The Confederates blazed away in a torrent of fire. It was at Jay's Mill that Forrest made his stand. He had the Yankees in his sights, and he went to work. Forrest stood in the middle of it all at Jay's Mill, firing away through the dust. The sound, as one Southerner reported, was one solid unbroken wave... as if all the fires of earth and hell had been turned loose in one mighty effort to destroy each other. Thousands of men were locked together amid bramble and branch, firing at almost point blank range at each other. At the end of the day the men simply settled down on the ground where they were and prepared for what rest they could manage amid the cries of the mangled and the dying. A bone-chilling night air covered them, and they shivered under whatever rag or blanket they could throw over themselves. Tomorrow was another day."

Simeon Carroll was killed that day and his brother Caswell, fighting beside him, was severely wounded. Simeon's family would never see him again. His remains were not recovered.
