[AL] Pierce Carroll
Seeking information on a Pierce Carroll born about 1817 Virginia. The problem I'm having is which is his last name. Either Carroll or Pennington. His son July Pennington born abt 1840; who died in 1937, the death certificate source documents says the father is Pierce Carroll. Could they have forgotten to add the last name Pennington to this document, or what?
Haven't been able to find out much about Pierce, other than the sons death document puts him in Troy, Pike County, Alabama. Even the sons census records, the birth places goes back and forth in between him being born in Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia or Alabama. How does one work past that?
July Pennington was married to Julia Collins and they had the following children: Pierce, George, Luda, Gracie, Bartlett, Louisa, Lee, Jane, Missie & Marshall. My cousin Nora Goodwin is married to the one son Bartlett Pennington. This about the extent of knowledge known of Pierce Carroll, father of July Pennington. Any more guidance on breaking down the brick wall on Pierce Carroll, I'd appreciate any help.
