19 Jan. 1912:

John H. Carroll, a ranchman and miner, who has been making his home for some time near Sedan, in the East Flathead country, and one of the picturesque characters of the early mining days in the west, died yesterday evening at 7 o'clock at the Deaconess hospital. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon from Safley's undertaking parlors, the services being in charge of Rev. J. E. Parker. The old miner was 83 years and 5 months old, and has been a bachelor all his life. As far as friends know there are no living relatives of the old man. Two weeks ago yesterday, the old man underwent an operation at the hospital but his condition was weak and complications arose which caused his death. Mr. Carroll has been a resident of this part of Montana for the past quarter of a century, and prior to that time, was active in the development of some wealthy mining properties in Colorado. While in Montana (he) has always been identified with mining interests and was, prior to the entrance of the college trained mining engineers into the field of western mining, accounted one of the best trained and wisest in his profession, of any of the miners of the west. In Colorado, where his palmiest days were spent, John Carroll was made rich many times by the strikes he made in the mines of that state. The story of this period of his life, as told by himself or his friends, reads like pages from the romances of the early west. His intimate friends in Bozeman were few, but several who have come in contact with him have been impressed with the force and richness of his nature.

I have been researching Sedan history since 1995 and have no record of John Carroll being buried in the Sedan Cemetery, however, Gallatin County seems to have misplaced the ledger of burials for this cemetery.
