Hi....unfortunately Mr. Hills grave is unmarked. He is buried in Chapel Hill #311, Sp 5. This plot has 18 burials in it and only two have markers. Sorry.

RE: Col Derosey Carroll

I am interested in the distict possibility that this is the same person as your message to me indicated. Derosey (also spelled as Derosa) Cabell is probably unique, so it should be likely the same man. You will notice that he was in Mississippi from 1833 to 1842, then relocated to Arkansas from 1843 until his death in 1863. As my original family research discovered, he was in Tishomingo County, Mississippi, so I believe that you are correct. However, in all fairness,

Carrollville could be named after his father, Charles John Carroll, who died in Maryland in 1815. Or another possibility is that Derosey Carroll was related to Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Maryland, the signer of the Declaration of Independence (it is not a direct relationship, but through Charles Carroll's grandfather, Charles Carroll). I mention these only in fairness for you to consider.

Information about families is somewhat difficult to obtain prior to 1840, when census records only covered the first name of the head of household, and few details were available. By the way, Mary Angela Carroll was born in 1842 in Carrollton, Franklin County, Alabama. Perhaps the most prominent citizen of the town, or the first one to settle at the town's future site, got to name the town after themselves.

Best wishes,
