Mr. Carroll was born in Bullock's Creek township on November 10, 1831, and at the time of his death lacked but a few hours of having reached his 82nd birthday. He was one of the first York county volunteers at the beginning of the civil war, and on the reorganization of the army In April, 1862, became second lieutenant of Company B, 5th regiment. He was severely wounded at the battle of Sharpsburg, and was sent home; but returned to the front as soon as he was able to get about. Later he was slightly hit at Darby Road, but suffered no inconvenience on account of the wound. A farmer before the war, he continued to farm until by reason of advancing years he had to give up active life.
